A local MP has shown her support for Respect for Shopworkers week.
Redcar MP Anna Turley demonstrated her support for Respect for Shopworkers Week when she visited the Co-op store in Marske.
During her visit to the store on the High Street, Ms Turley discussed local community safety issues with store staff and heard about the Co-op’s operational programme to help tackle crime.
Members of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have visited the Houses of Parliament this week.
MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland Simon Clarke has welcomed members of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team to the Houses of Parliament on Monday to thank them in person for their fantastic work to save lives of people who find themselves in difficulty when exploring the great outdoors. The team were able to watch MPs debating in the House of Commons, explore parts of the historic palace of Westminster and ask Simon and his team questions about Parliament and the role of MPs.
The Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team have attended over 1800 callouts since the group was founded on 1965. The 24/7 service is entirely volunteer run and acts as a fourth emergency service: if someone finds themselves need of their specialist help, they should initially ask for the police when calling 999 and then request Mountain Rescue to ensure the team are informed they are needed as quickly as possible.
A local primary school has been thrust into the national spotlight after becoming the Sunday Times State Primary School of the Year.
St Bede’s Catholic Primary School in Marske, was named as the overall winner in the latest edition of Britain's longest-running newspaper school guide, which recognises the country’s top-achieving schools in both the state and independent sectors.
Alastair McCall, Sunday Times Schools Guide, editor said: "St Bede's is the embodiment of what an outstanding primary school should be. Its children achieve excellent results, but the school offers so much more than that.
"Committed and talented staff tease the best out of the children in a school where moral and spiritual development counts as much as academic achievement."
St Bede’s head Joanna Wilson said that the achievement is testament to the amazing work carried out at St Bede’s by the staff, its governors and their dedicated parents and pupils.
