The volunteers of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called into action in our area at the weekend.
At around twenty past midday on Saturday lunchtime the team were contacted regarding a woman who had sustained a painful left knee injury whilst out running with her sister a few miles east of Osmotherley.
The casualty was starting to get cold and had attempted to keep warm by slowly making her way towards the nearest road.
Once assessed, the casualty was provided with some warm clothing and pain relief medication, wrapped in a casualty bag containing a warming pad and then transported on a wheeled rescue stretcher to one of the team Land Rovers.
After being driven to the roadside she was then taken to hospital in a family vehicle.
A new health centre and pharmacy in our area has been given the go-ahead by planners.
The South Grange Medical Centre recently received the planning go-ahead from Redcar and Cleveland Council.
The GP practice currently occupies a building on the Trunk Road, in Eston, near to Eston leisure centre, with a partner site in Kirkleatham, Redcar.
The new facility will be built on land next to Grangetown community fire station, off Church Lane, and be over three storeys high.
It will incorporate patient waiting areas, 30 rooms for clinical consultations, staff offices, a pharmacy and car parking with 83 spaces in total.
A project to put up fencing around a field in Grangetown to provide a safe space for the local community and events has been abandoned due to repeated attacks by vandals.
Redcar and Cleveland Council had committed almost £60,000 towards the scheme at Kingsley Field, which is next to Greystone woods, with community organisation 'You’ve Got This' adding £40,000.
An update for members of the local authority’s growth scrutiny committee said that all the stakeholders involved had agreed to abort the project due to high levels of anti-social behaviour and vandalism.
Residents have complained of motorbikes and quad vehicles being driven onto the green space, endangering children, with a local junior football team also forced to move on as a result.
