Travellers by train are facing more disruption using Northern Rail as the Saturday strike action is set to continue until the end of the year, posing potential problems for Christmas shoppers and events organised along the line.

The RMT unions General Secretary Mick Cash says that it continues to make every effort to get serious and meaningful talks going with Northern but the company are not interested and would prefer to continue to bury their heads in the sand regardless of the impact on the travelling public.

David Brown, the Managing Director of Northern, called on the union to reconvene talks and to demonstrate that they are serious about making progress by suspending industrial action. He went on to say that RMT responded by cynically targeting the weekends in November and December to hit Christmas markets and important seasonal events.

Police Cadets from Redcar have helped a victim complete work that was never carried out by scammers who stole thousands of pounds from her.

The woman in her seventies, parted with nearly fifteen thousand pounds to suspected rogue traders who promised to transform the garden of her Redcar property, but they pocketed the money and never did any work.

When the local Police Cadets heard about the case, they pulled a team together to help and yesterday completed the work she initially wanted doing on her garden.

The Head of Redcar Police Cadets, PC Neil Robinson said he's proud of the cadets for their hard work, dedication and such a selfless act of kindness.

 

A firm of architects from Guisborough has won a prestigious award for turning a group of listed farm buildings into a family home in a conservation area of the North York Moors National Park.

Summerhouse Architects have won the “Best Conversion” category of the North York Moors National Park Design Awards 2018 for their work on the Grade II listed Hall Farm Barns in Carlton-in-Cleveland near Stokesley.

The awards held earlier in the month in Helmsley recognise “the most innovative and distinctive new developments completed within the North York Moors over the past five years”.

The company said the challenge for a build of this type was to maintain the architectural character and integrity of the agricultural buildings and the cultural heritage of the farmhouse, while creating a beautiful and modern family home.
