Zetland FM Local News - 9th Jan 2016
A round up of Local News in Redcar and Cleveland for 9th January 2016.
A local swimming pool which recently re-opened following refurbishment work is set to close it's doors for more work to take place.
Guisborough Swimming Pool is set to close temporarily on January the 18th so that maintenance work can be completed.
The swimming pool, which is run by Everyone Active on behalf of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council, will be closed for two to three weeks while the work is carried out.
While the pool is closed, users can attend swimming pools run by Everyone Active at Eston Leisure Centre, Loftus Leisure Centre, Saltburn Leisure Centre and the Redcar and Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart.
Zetland FM spoke to Councillor Carl Quartermain, Council Cabinet Member for Jobs, Skills and Leisure. We asked him why the closure was necessary so soon after the refurbishment:

Cleveland Police are offering advice to parents to help keep their children safe online.
Many youngsters in our area received gifts such as iPads, smart phones, laptops, game consoles and other electronic devices for Christmas and parents are sometimes in the dark about how to make them as secure as possible for their children.
The advice to parents is to show an interest in the applications and sites used by their children, to talk to their children about what is happening in their ‘online’ lives and to give their children the confidence to disclose anything that makes them feel uncomfortable.
Police say the critical message for children and young people is to ensure that they only give access to personal profiles to people that they know and trust. Youngsters should also avoid sharing personal information with strangers and should tell an adult about anything which makes them feel uncomfortable online.
Anyone who is concerned about online activity should contact Cleveland Police on 101, contact Barnardos or Childline or use the ‘report’ buttons on social networking applications.
Today's Guisborough Town match against Bishop Auckland has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the King George the Fifth ground.
However the Priorymen will still be in action today, as they have hastily arranged an attractive friendly game against EvoStik side Darlington which will be played at Longfield School in Darlington. That match kicks off at 4pm this afternoon and all supporters are very welcome.
Weather permitting, Guisborough's next home league game is against Whitley Bay and is scheduled for this coming Wednesday the 13th of January at the King George the Fifth ground. A further announcement about this match will be made by the club next week.
