Dance Fuzion and Full Swing Dance also joined in with the parade spreading Christmas cheer. From Church Road the parade made its way onto the High Street stopping just south of the Shambles where the children gathered to start a festive sing along. Visitors and residents were asked to join in and song-sheets were handed out. This year the theme of the parade is the 12 Days of Christmas and all parade participants have been working with an artist to create some fabulous costumes based on the 12 days of Christmas. - Santa on his sleigh and his entourage of reindeers brought the 12 days of Christmas to life.”

www.teespen.org.uk The Teesside Pension Fund has been given a clean bill of health in its latest valuation. The Fund, administered by Middlesbrough Council on behalf of the four Tees Valley councils, was assessed by actuaries Aon Hewitt. The actuarial valuation is undertaken every three years and measures the health of the Fund and dictates how much employers have to pay in. The latest results show that the Fund is 101% funded. Unlike other public sector

pension schemes the local government scheme holds a portfolio of investments which is used to meet the cost of pensions. The value of investments held is £2.957 billion (as at March 31, 2013), some £37 million more than the Fund’s liabilities, which represent future pension payments to employees and pensioners. This strong position means that the majority of Fund employers will be able to reduce their contributions over the next three years. Councillor Steve Bloundele, who chairs the Teesside Pension Fund Investment Panel, said: “This is a very satisfactory result which will enable more resources to be released for front line services at a time when Council budgets are under severe pressure, whilst still maintaining the strong position held by the Fund. “It is a tribute to the prudent way in which the Fund has been managed over many years that the Teesside Fund has one of the strongest funding positions of any local authority fund in the country.”

Fuel - Big Community Switch scheme Stockton Council householders who signed up for the latest round of the ‘Big Community Switch’ scheme are set to save an average £126.00 per year on their gas and electricity bills, following an auction between energy companies. In Stockton, 726 households have registered to the ‘Big Community Switch’ Scheme - which was combined with a number of other similar initiatives around the UK - to create a collective of over 54,000 households over 70 local authority areas. This is the sixth such collective auction to be held in the UK since the pilot with South Lakeland District Council a year ago. The largest auction, in April 2013, saw 160,000 households register with special tariffs created for a number of the ‘auction categories’. As collective switching schemes become better known they are attracting a mix of ‘Big Six’ and smaller independent suppliers to the table. There were three ‘winners’ in this auction who will supply a range of contracts: Scottish Power, Green Star Energy (formerly Pioneer Energy) and British Gas. Residents will soon get their personal offer letters or e-mails letting them know if they’ll be saving against their current deal – and if so how much money will be going back into their pocket. This comes at a time when energy prices, and the strain on household budgets, is on the increase and so will be a welcome relief for many as the colder months draw ever closer. There is no obligation for people to accept their personal offer, but if they do it’s easy and straightforward and the new provider will take care of the whole process.

Councillor David Rose, Cabinet Member for the Environment at Stockton Borough Council, said: “With energy bills on the rise, it is so important we do all we can to ensure that gas and electricity bills are kept to a minimum. “The Stockton ‘Big Community Switch’ Scheme brought residents together to ensure they get the very best deal for their households. I’m delighted that over 700 households have the potential to make savings and would encourage everyone to consider taking part throughout the coming year.” Mr Royston Sellers, from Billingham, is set to save approximately £40 a year after registering for the Big Community Switch. He said: “Any way of saving some money is an advantage and the Big Community Switch will help me reduce the cost of my bills. I’m really glad I signed up and would encourage other people to register for the next auction.” Stockton Borough Council will be supporting another Big Community Switch next autumn, however, if people missed out this time and don’t want to wait that long, iChoosr run auctions throughout the year and people register with iChoosr at any time and take part in the next available auction. More details about iChoosr and how to register are on the Council website at http://www.stockton.gov.uk/strongcomm unities/bigcommunityswitch

Piano tuner Michelle Rudd, of Northallerton, is offering a novel way of raising money for the Friarage Hospital MRI scanner appeal. During the week 6 to 11 January 2014, Michelle is generously donating all her takings from tuning pianos in Northallerton. She will charge a flat rate of £75 and all cheques will be made payable to the appeal and people can donate more if they wish. MRI scanners are used to diagnose a wide range of health conditions. A scanner for the Friarage will be a valuable resource for medical teams and a welcome addition to the diagnostic services currently available at the Northallerton hospital. Benefits include quicker diagnosis of conditions, hopefully leading to better health outcomes for patients, care closer to home, and reduced travelling and waiting times. Michelle who is based in Northallerton, but covers a range of up to 60 miles is celebrating 30 years of professional piano tuning. Her vast experience and ability has enabled her to tune for top venues such as Sage in Gateshead and Middlesbrough Town Hall. She is a member of The Pianoforte Tuners' Association which is celebrating its centenary this year. "It seemed a good idea to celebrate this too, by doing something positive for my community, which has supported my business for so long,” she said. "This kind of work can be very demanding but it's a real pleasure to hear the results when I stay for the performance. It is just as satisfying to resurrect an old piano and even the best piano in the world will sound awful if they're never tuned, and a tuning can transform an old piano into a decent sounding musical instrument again." Contact Michelle by telephoning 01609 779983 or www.pianotuningyorkshire.com if you would like your piano tuned in the New Year and help the Friarage MRI scanner appeal at the same time.

Christmas mural goes on show in Shopping centre Students from Stockton Riverside College’s art department have produced a range of Christmas scenes covering a set of hoardings 60 foot in length and 8 feet high at Wellington Square Shopping Centre.

Martin Shipley of Town Team, Rob Gildersleeve - centre manager Wellington Square, students Shanice Newman, Stuart Clarke and Chris Di-Duca, and Victoria Welsh of Stockton Borough Council's Rediscover Stockton team

Given the brief to fit in with the centre’s Advent Calendar theme, over 30 students joined together to produce the artwork in just four days last week. The mural will go on display form this Tuesday 26th November and remain in place until the New Year. The students are from Levels 1, 2 and 3 of the college’s art and design course, and formed teams to collaborate on four large paintings ranging from reindeer to a Nativity scene. The students started last Monday working in their groups on initial designs and then had three days to paint up the hoardings, with materials donated by a partnership including Stockton’s Town Team, Stockton Council and Wellington Square Shopping Centre. Phil Cook, Principal of Stockton Riverside College, said, “This has been a fantastic opportunity for the students to work together in this way, and to produce a community based piece of artwork in the local area.” “It is a new experience to produce art on this scale, and the facilities have been excellent. The students are delighted

with the result, and we expect a lot of family and friends will want to come and see their work on such public display.” Rob Gildersleeve, centre manager at Wellington Square, welcomed the new hoardings, “The hoardings are amazing and show that the students have real flair and expertise. I am proud to host this artwork to brighten up this part of the shopping centre with a Christmas theme. Well done to the students for producing an excellent result in such a short time period.” Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, Councillor Ken Dixon, said: “Art works have a significant part to play in the regeneration of Stockton Town Centre. “I’m delighted to see our young people are not only contributing to this year’s festivities but also participating in the town’s transformation. I’m sure this excellent mural will be enjoyed by many visitors over the coming weeks as thousands of people come into the town centre to buy their Christmas gifts.” Art student, Stuart Clarke, 22, said: “I have had a great time helping make such a fantastic festive piece. It was good experience working other artists who had different styles. It is for the community and it is something nice for people to enjoy.”

Mayor officially opens DLS Food Services new 50,000 square ft. facility Councillor Kathryn Nelson, Mayor of Stockton, has officially opened a catering supply firm’s new state-of-the-art warehouse and head office in Thornaby. The new 50,000 square ft. facility on Teesside Industrial Estate will see Direct Line Supplies (DLS) Food Services expand its facility – allowing the company to plan further growth, explore new markets and safeguard 65 jobs. DLS Food Services, which also has premises in Middlesbrough and Newcastle, was founded in 1989 as a quality supplier to the catering trade in the Tees Valley. Stockton Council has supported the company with their expansion plans. Mayor of Stockton, Councillor Kathryn Nelson, said: “I am delighted to be asked to officially open this state of the art facility and welcome this company and its employees to the Borough. I wish DLS Food Services well and hope the new premise allows them to increase their capacity further while securing the long-term future of the business in Stockton.” Mr Abbas Salahshouri, Director of DLS Food Services, said: “On this significant day we are extremely happy to celebrate such an occasion with both our

customers, suppliers and business partners, at all times remembering their support throughout our journey. “During the economic downturn our business has survived due to our level of quality, service and continuous diversification. “It is not without hard work that we have made a success of our diversifications giving credit to our staff members, and of course the partners who have continuously adapted to the changes within our company strengthening our chances of existence for another 25 years to come. “A big thank you goes out to Stockton Council who have guided and advised throughout the whole expansion process making the transition smooth and seamless.” Neil Kenley, Tees Valley Unlimited’s Director of Business Investment, who attended the official opening, said: “We congratulate DLS Food Services as they open their new premises and wish them continued success for the future. “The Tees Valley economy is both challenging and diverse but we are seeing today the opportunities that can be realised through commitment and ambition.”

When Our Grandfathers said No is a line from one of his most compelling songs The Battle of Stockton, recalling an incident in 1933 when Oswald Mosley’s Blackshirts targeted deprived areas as potential fascist hotbeds and marched over the Tees – to be physically repelled by 2,000 outraged townspeople. Clare Irvine, Hartlepool Council’s Arts and Events Manager, says: “Nobody sleeps when The Young’uns are in town! They are a superb live act – definitely not to be missed and just the ticket to get Christmas off to a sparkling start.” The show starts at 8pm and tickets cost £7. To book call the Box Office on 01429 890000. And to make it an extra special night out, Hartlepool’s Grand Hotel in Swainson Street is offering all Town Hall Theatre patrons 20% off the a la carte menu for pre-show dinners in its Grand Central restaurant from 12 noon to 2pm and from 5pm to 6.30pm. Also available is a three-course meal for just £4.95 and there’s a free bottle of house wine for every prebooked table of six or more. The offer applies to all shows at the Town Hall Theatre and is subject to production of the theatre tickets. For more details call the Grand Hotel on 01429 266345.

Make a date with The Young’uns

There’s an early Christmas treat in store for folk fans when acclaimed Teesside trio The Young’uns come to Hartlepool’s Town Hall Theatre on Saturday 21st December. They may have established their fast-growing reputation in the folk world with sublime a cappella harmonies, but the Teesside trio – Sean Cooney, Michael Hughes and David Eagle – are an unlikely force of nature on stage, beguiling audiences with irrepressible humour, bold vocals, gripping storylines and innate musicality. Describing their gigs as ‘absolute chaos’, they go on stage without set-lists, relying on infallible instinct and their unique rapport with audiences to deliver a killer show. Their music is rooted fiercely in Teesside – especially Stockton – where they first started singing together at the local folk club.

Hartlepool Free Parking Hartlepool Council is behind the free parking initiative which is designed to encourage people to shop and spend their money in the town. Shoppers already benefit from free parking on Sundays all-year round in town centre car parks but they will now also be able to park for free on Saturday 14th and 21st December. The free parking initiative also includes all car parks and on-street parking in the Church Street area, the Transport Interchange and Mill House Leisure Centre.

Its chair, Councillor Peter Jackson, said: “Despite the fact that the Council is facing financial pressures of its own, we must continue to be creative and look at new ways to boost the local economy and make Hartlepool attractive to visitors. “From the feedback we’ve received so far it’s clear that the business community support this scheme and appreciate what the Council is doing to stimulate business and investment in the town. “Car parking charges are a factor that people consider when deciding where to shop and we hope that by suspending all parking charges during weekends in December will encourage both residents and people outside the town to do their Christmas shopping in Hartlepool.” Shops in Middleton Grange Shopping Centre will stay open until 8pm on Dec 19th, 20th, 21st & 23rd.

Officers and staff commended at awards ceremony Officers and staff at Cleveland Police have received awards in a commendation ceremony held at the Force’s Headquarters on Thursday 28th November. 32 officers and civilian staff were commended by Chief Constable Jacqui Cheer and High Sheriff of Durham, Peter Bell, for a range of achievements including outstanding courage, professionalism, bravery and dedication to their work. Eight members of staff were also awarded certificates for twenty years of service at the Force. A Chief Constable’s Commendation was awarded to two officers whose actions undoubtedly saved the life of an elderly man

The driver of the vehicle refused to stop and turned into a farmer’s field, travelling at slow speed due to thick, heavy mud. The officer then left his police vehicle, gave chase and ran alongside the JCB. He opened the cab door and took hold of the driver and pulled him from the vehicle, despite the potential for serious injury to himself, therefore preventing injury to members of the public and also the recovery of a high value JCB. One man was presented with a Brave Citizens Award following an incident in which the man, along with another man, protected two young girls from a vicious Bullmastiff that had already attacked a young boy. The incident which took place on 3rd November 2012, saw the men use a bicycle to fend off the dog, after it had already dragged an 11-year-old from his pedal bike.

who was found lifeless in his home after it was reported that he hadn’t been seen for an unusual amount of time. PC John Blench and PC Steven Bolsover administered CPR and assisted paramedics before the man was transported to James Cook University Hospital where he remained in a coma. He has since made a full recovery. An Assistant Chief Constable’s Commendation was awarded to an officer who displayed great bravery in a dangerous chase involving a JCB. The officer responded to a report of a JCB which smashed through a fence and was travelling in the direction of the A174.

The girls needed hospital treatment for their injuries, but without the brave intervention of the men their injuries would have been far worse. Chief Constable Jacqui Cheer said: “We hold these ceremonies so that we can recognise the brave officers, staff and public within Cleveland. It is important to us to say thank you to our officers and staff who have displayed the utmost dedication to their profession, as well as their families. “It is particularly poignant to show our appreciation to those members of the public who have shown great bravery, selflessness and disregard for their own safety, especially as they have often had no training or prior experience of being in a potentially dangerous situation. “The evening was thoroughly enjoyable and I hope that all who received awards are very proud of themselves.”

Incident response unit set up for key routes A 24-Hour Incident Response Unit formed by Middlesbrough Council will reduce traffic management costs in the town by £45,000. Staff from the authority’s Streetscene Service have completed training in NVQ Level 2 Highways Maintenance Incident Support Unit Operations and are undergoing assessment for a Cskills Award. The team will now provide incident response on the A172 link road and the 6km section of A66 within the Middlesbrough boundary and will incorporate a daily inspection to identify emergency defects and carry out debris removal. A round-the-clock incident response facility will also provide emergency traffic management for all highway incidents outside of the operational remit of Cleveland Police. The service was previously provided by a private contractor at an annual cost of £45k and the saving will contribute

towards the authority’s wider budget reduction targets.Councillor Nicky Walker, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Environment, said: “The most important aspect of developing this facility is that we are able to make a real saving while maintaining a public service. “Credit must go to the Streetscene Service staff who have completed this training and gained the necessary qualifications to allow us to put it into practice.” Under the Traffic Management Act 2004 local authorities are required by stature to establish a service to deal with incidents that could cause congestion and disruption on our high speed roads. The service can also be utilised to provide emergency traffic management across the whole of the Council’s highway network which will offer maintenance repairs at traffic sensitive locations which would ordinarily require sub-contracted traffic management.

20mph zones approved Two new 20mph speed limit zones are to be introduced in Hartlepool. Members of the Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Services Committee have given the go-ahead for the zones, one covering the entire Headland and the other taking in Fenton Road, Lincoln Road, Ingham Grove and Wainfleet Road on the Fens Estate. Councillors heard that in both cases consultation exercises had produced strong support for the introduction of 20mph speed limits. The new lower speed limits were proposed after concern was voiced about the speed of traffic in both areas. They will be enforced using signs only and there are no plans to carry out engineering works to reduce the speeds of vehicles. Councillor Peter Jackson, Chair of the Neighbourhood Services Committee, said: “The results of the consultation in both cases highlight the level of local concern about vehicle speeds in these areas and, hopefully, these measures will improve safety for both pedestrians and drivers.” Implementing the new speed limits will cost approximately £1,500, with the money coming from the Council’s Local Transport budget allocation from the Government.

Andrew Street Hartlepool TS24 7LB

A SPECIALIST critical care outreach team has been set up to support clinical staff in managing acutely ill patients in hospital in a major drive to improve outcomes for all ill patients in South Tees. It’s hoped the new service will improve patient safety and reduce unexpected deaths by providing a higher vigilance of ‘at risk’ patients, for example patients who are seriously ill and who are managed in the ward environment. This would be achieved through earlier detection of patients’ whose condition is deteriorating, so that staff can immediately respond and deliver the most appropriate treatment. By recognising and treating patients who are very sick earlier in their illness, this may reduce the numbers of patients who subsequently may need critical care (such as intensive or high dependency care) or help their earlier admission, and may improve the outcome for sick patients in hospital. A key function of the team, which consists of nurses and doctors with critical care skills, will be to support ward staff in caring for patients recovering from critical illness following a stay in intensive care. The service will be provided day and night in The James Cook University Hospital, Middlesbrough, and seven days a week in the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton.

Another important role for the team is providing training and education for clinical staff during ward rounds and on-call visits to areas so their assessment skills and clinical-decision making is enhanced. A rolling educational programme is also being continued to give healthcare professionals the knowledge and skills required to identify critically ill patients. Anticipated benefits of the outreach service include: • • • •

Increased appropriateness and timeliness of intervention for patients leading to better patient outcomes Reduction in cardiac arrest calls Reduction in clinical risks. Better use of critical care facilities

Nurse consultant Lindsay Garcia said: “Our ability to recognise, react and treat patients whose condition suddenly deteriorates is a key patient safety priority for us. Patients who come into hospital want to feel safe and cared for and comforted in the knowledge they’re in the best place for prompt and effective treatment if they do become very ill, very quickly. We’re already doing a lot of work in this important area – it’s one of our priorities in the trust’s 2013/2014 quality account – and this service will enhance our work in avoiding harm and clinical risk to patients, hopefully improving their overall outcomes.”

We Never Destroy a Healthy Dog Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre, Darlington, Hill House Farm, Sadberge, Co Durham, DL2 1SL

Open: 12:00 - 16:00 Closed: Tuesday

this Christmas! Residents of Hartlepool are being urged to make it a happy Christmas for stray dogs picked up on the town’s streets. They are being asked to donate much-needed items for use by the kennels where dogs not immediately reclaimed by their owners are taken by the Borough Council. The Stray Aid Rescue Centre at Coxhoe, County Durham, needs towels for drying wet dogs, tinned food (especially the Chappie brand), dental chews, Kong dog toys and blankets. Pillows or duvets are unsuitable because they cannot be washed, and the kennels are also unable to accept bagged food, mixer biscuits and treats as they can adversely affect dogs’ tummies. Kate Ainger, Hartlepool Council’s Environmental Projects Officer, said: “Stray Aid Rescue Centre is a registered charity and any help that the people of Hartlepool can provide will be most welcome.”Donated items can be dropped off at reception at the Council’s offices at 1 Church Street until Christmas Eve. People can also make a donation to the cost of Stray Aid Rescue Centre’s new kennel block at www.justgiving.com/strayaid Stray Aid was recently awarded a contract to take stray dogs picked up in Hartlepool following a decision by the owner of the company that previously provided the service Low Fallowfield Farm Kennels in South Hetton to retire. The procedure for reporting a lost or found dog has not changed and people should continue to contact the Council on (01429) 523333. To reclaim a dog, owners must pay the required fee at Hartlepool Civic Centre and then take a receipt to the kennels. Dogs not claimed by their owners continue to be put up for adoption and residents can view details of all available dogs via the Council’s dedicated Dog Warden Service page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/dogwardenhpool

Young people’s DVD paves the way to a top award

Time Capsule to mark Middlehaven’s pioneering future Middlesbrough’s Past, Present and Future Middlesbrough’s past and present are to be captured at a site that is already paving the way for the town’s future. A competition is launched this week to give local people a chance to have their ideas preserved for posterity in a time capsule at Middlehaven. The Urban Pioneers project which will shape future development at the historic site was formally launched last month (November) by Middlesbrough Council and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). Middlehaven is already home to major new developments including Middlesbrough College, CIAC and the myplace youth centre, with Urban Pioneers promising further residential, commercial and

ive-work units, as well as a new urban park. As work on the next phase gets under way, a time capsule is to be buried at the site to mark its significance in the town’s on-going regeneration. Students from Middlesbrough College’s Engineering Department have designed the capsule which will be buried beneath the first Urban Pioneers development. Initial ideas include a steel heart, a Bottle of Notes and photographs of Middlehaven before and after the development of the College. But the students want to hear suggestions from local people for items which symbolise Middlesbrough’s past, present and future.

Competition ‘Urban Pioneers’ are being sought to build their own homes and businesses in Middlehaven, Middlesbrough. This could include houses, small apartment blocks and offices, which will be in a great location close to the River Tees, Transporter Bridge and facing a brilliant new urban park. Middlehaven is Middlesbrough’s historic heart, where the first pioneers laid their roots in the early 19th Century as Middlesbrough began to flex its industrial muscles. Students from Middlesbrough College have designed a time capsule which will be buried when the first Urban Pioneers plot is being built and we want YOU, YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY to suggest items that could go

in the time capsule, showing Middlesbrough’s past, present and future. We can’t wait to see your ideas – make sure they aren’t too big or they won’t fit in! Suggestions should be sent by Monday 13th January 2014 to: middlehaven@middlesbrough.gov.uk or Major Projects Team Middlesbrough Council First Floor, Civic Centre Middlesbrough, TS1 9FY Winners will be announced in February 2014 – good luck!

Plug in to electrical safety tips

Members of the Public Asked to be Vigilant over Cold Callers

Cleveland fire chiefs are urging local people to follow some simple electrical safety tips to help them and others stay safe and free from injury and even death over the festive period. The call from Cleveland Fire Brigade’s Head of Community Safety Les Jones forms part of the Brigade's Stay Safe and Celebrate campaign which runs up until Christmas and into the New Year. Figures show that between April – November 2013 there were 90 accidental house fires in Cleveland, 37 (41%) of which were electrical-related. Les Jones said: “Although overall accidental house fires are continuing to drop year-on-year, a significant proportion of accidental house fires www.clevelandfire.gov.uk/celebrate are still electrically-related.

Police are reminding members of the public to be vigilant when answering the door to cold callers. The reminder comes after an incident was reported of suspicious men purporting to be from a local housing organisation in Guisborough. The men attended an address Thursday, 5th December, where they asked for access and when the householder asked for identification, they said they would return the next day. The two men then left in a small white van. Enquiries have since ruled out that the men genuinely attended the address on behalf of the organisation. PC Kim Catcheside from Guisborough Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “It is important that members of the public are cautious when answering the door to cold callers. People should always ask for identification, and if necessary could even telephone the organisation or company concerned to ask if they can confirm that the person is genuinely from the organisation. If anyone has concerns then they should contact police on 101.”Anyone with further information is asked to contact PC Kim Catcheside from Guisborough Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously.

In addition, following a further successful ballot by the FBU, its members will be undertaking action short of strike action in the form of a limited overtime ban. Ian Hayton, Chief Fire Officer at Cleveland Fire Brigade said: “We are very disappointed that a negotiated settlement still has still not been reached in this national dispute and that further strikes have been announced, particularly as these strikes will take place over the holiday period.” “During previous industrial action our auxiliary firefighters have performed really well, and gained further experience and on the job training. “Again we are asking members of the public to take extra care in order to reduce the risk of a fire in their homes, businesses and communities. Throughout next week we will provide advice, support and guidance on how to stay safe, so please take some time to access and read this potentially lifesaving information.”

Heather McGregor, Chair of Career Academies UK, may be more widely known as Mrs Moneypenny, the host of Channel 4’s Superscrimpers. She flew into Teesside in order to pass on careers tips to students at Guisborough’s Prior Pursglove College. Financial Times writer Heather runs headhunting company Taylor Bennett. She holds a pilot’s licence so flew her own plane into Durham Tees Valley Airport in order to meet students at the college and present a careers based lecture. The event was organised as part of Career Academies UK who work with 16-19 year olds to raise aspirations and bridge the gap between education and the world of work. They organise the provision of internships, mentoring, volunteering and provide motivational talks and workshops in schools and colleges. Speaking to students, Heather expressed that

the most important career factors could be broken down into three key areas. She said “Your skills, mainly literacy and numeracy are extremely important. “Experience is also vital. When constructing your CV remember that everything is relevant including anything where you’ve shown initiative to earn money or volunteered. “Skills and experience are what employers are looking for but often the contacts you have formed will prove to be that extra selling point. Make sure you build positive relationships with your teachers at college, lecturers at university and with those that you work with as you never know when you may need to rely on key individuals for references when you’re applying for your dream job.” Former Times Editor, Anne Spackman also attended the event alongside Career Academies UK Chief Executive James McCreary.

www.the-circuit.co.uk t: 01642 633866 e: info@the-circuit.co.uk

A historic railway signal box in Stockton has been granted Grade II status by English Heritage as part of its Heritage Plan project. Norton East signal box dates back to the 19th century and is one of the last surviving examples of its kind. Located at Norton East junction in Stockton-onTees, the signal box is one of two in the Borough from 1870 – the other is located at Norton South. Signal boxes are small huts or cabins provided for men operating railway signals. From the 1840s they were often located on raised platforms with levers to operate signals and were built in a variety of different designs and sizes to meet traffic needs. The Grade II listing now recognises Norton East as having special architectural and historic interest. English Heritage, the Government's statutory adviser on the historic environment responsible for the allocation of listing grade, set out a range of reasons as to why the signal box now deserved listed status. Norton East is a very rare surviving example of a typical form of signal box, with its gable wall facing the railway tracks. Although the signal box retains many of its original features, a projecting

side extension was added as a characteristic building modification, of which the signal box is the last known example to survive. Norton East Signal Box still has its original timber windows and has not been modernised internally, keeping its inside unchanged from the days of steam locomotives. With only the external timber steps replaced with steel, the signal box also has its original porch intact and is otherwise untouched. The listing means the signal box will now be protected and remain in place as a mark of the region’s railway heritage and to showcase its historical value. Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, said: “We have a rich railway history which we are very proud of, so to have not one but two historical signal boxes in the Borough is fantastic. “We are thrilled Norton East signal box has been recognised for its historical and architectural value with such a prestigious grade listing. The Grade II listing now means that even though the signal box is no longer used, it will be protected so people can enjoy it for many more years.”

Muslim group backs Mayor’s good causes

The Ceremonial Mayor of Hartlepool Councillor Stephen Akers-Belcher’s charity fund has now topped £25,000 this year thanks to a generous £500 donation from a Muslim organisation. The Mayor was given the donation from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association UK when its North-East President Rashid Amini visited Civic Centre together with some of his Muslim colleagues. The Association is a UK-wide Muslim charity with over 25,000 members and more than 100 branches. This year it is celebrating its centenary and has marked the occasion with a number of charity fundraising events around the country including a

peace walk which raised over £250,000. It is helping over 100 national and local good causes and also making donations to various Mayors’ charities. During the visit to Civic Centre, the Association also presented the Mayor with an English translation of the Holy Qur’an and brought two books for every Hartlepool Councillor as well – ‘World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace’ and ‘Life of Muhammad’. Joining the Mayor to greet the visitors were Councillors Marjorie James, Jim Ainslie, Allan Barclay, Paul Beck and Kevin Cranney. Mr Amini said: “We are delighted to make these presentations. We love Hartlepool and its people and are committed to doing everything we can to help the local community and to spreading the word far and wide about the town’s achievements.” Councillor Akers-Belcher said: “It was a great pleasure to welcome the Association to Civic Centre and I thank it very much for its generous donation and kind gifts. “What makes Hartlepool great is its diversity – people of different backgrounds and beliefs, all with a shared wish to do their very best for the town and its residents. This is a very great strength.” The Mayor’s chosen charities this year are Macmillan Cancer Support, the Pansies Breast Cancer Support Group and the Denise Taylor Cancer Trust.

Bike rides with a difference in Stockton’s Preston Park A brand new cycling event is coming to Stockton’s Preston Park this winter. Stockton Council has teamed up with British Cycling to host a series of novice and entry level cyclo cross bike rides which take cyclists over a course of mixed terrain. Cyclists will be guided along paths, mud tracks and grass sections as they race through the sweeping parkland setting of Preston Hall. The course is designed for people of all abilities and you don’t need any experience to have a go - anyone aged five or above can take part, just remember to bring your own bike and helmet to join the fun! Cycle rides will take place one Sunday a month on 12 January, 9 February and 2 March 2014. Entries cost just £5 or £3 for under 16s and prizes will be awarded for both youth and senior races. Youth races start at 10.30am while senior races will set off at 11.30am. Registration opens at 10am and anyone taking part should register at least 10 minutes before their race begins. Cyclists should bring their own helmet and mountain bike or a bike with knobbled-tread tyres for extra grip. Councillor Ken Dixon, Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Culture and Leisure, said:

“We are keen to promote cycling for everyone in the Borough and these rides are great for cyclists of all abilities, whether you’re just starting out or simply looking for something different to try. “The route and guided rides make it safe and easy for everyone to get out on their bikes and keep fit all while enjoying the wonderful surrounds of Preston Park. I hope people give it a go!” For anyone who is not quite ready to tackle the terrain track, the Council is also offering training sessions to help you get up to speed. On Sunday 5 January and Saturday 1 February, participants will have the chance to improve their theory and practical skills as well as bike handling techniques to build control and confidence. Sessions will be taught from 9am to 12pm and cost just £10 each. Anyone aged five and above can take part but cyclists must bring their own bike and cycle helmet and are advised to dress for the weather.

across the central three quarters of the tyre, around its entire circumference. The legal limit of tyre tread depth in the UK for motorcycles over 50cc is 1mm across ? of the width of the tread pattern and with visible tread on the remaining ?. Drivers who fail to comply with the regulations face a fine of up to £2,500 and three penalty points for each illegal tyre.

Advice from TyreSafe states that you should examine your tyres regularly, removing stones and other objects embedded in the tread. Tyre treads are designed to give good grip on wet roads but in general wet grip decreases as tyre tread pattern wears down or as the depth of water increases. Motorists should take this into consideration and reduce speed when it is wet. TyreSafe also advise that consideration should be given to replacing tyres well before they reach the legal minimum.

Statistics revealed by the Department for Transport showed that the number of people killed or seriously injured in tyrerelated accidents increased sharply in 2011 following many years of decline. Some 205 people were killed or seriously injured in a tyre-related accident during 2011.

TyreSafe – In 2011, more than 1,100 road casualties were caused in the UK by accidents where illegal, defective or underinflated tyres were a contributory factor.

A police operation has shown that 92.5% of 1001 drivers who had their tyres checked by police had safe and roadworthy tyres leading into the winter months. Police set up check points in four locations during the operation in November and into December, at supermarkets on Portrack Lane, Marina Way, in South Bank and at Cleveland Retail Park. In total 1001 drivers had their tyres checked by officers, who found that only 7.5% had tyres that were of concern. The tyres on one vehicle were so worn that the cord was exposed and so had to be changed in the car park. In November, officers warned that drivers who don’t regularly check that their tyres are roadworthy are playing Russian roulette with their lives and warned people to ‘tread carefully’ when checking that their tyres at fit for purpose before the winter months bring wet weather, ice and frost. As part of the campaign traffic officers checks included tyre tread depth and tyre pressure. Drivers were handed information leaflets which included the grading of their tyres and a tread buddy so that they can check their own tread. Parents were also urged to check the safety of tyres on their child’s car. Of the 1001 vehicles checked, 75 vehicles had ‘red’ or ‘amber’ tyre tread gradings or had tyre pressure that was of concern which saw the officers check that the pressure of the tyres were not under 20 PSI. Some vehicles were found to have both low tread and low pressure. Inspector Lee Rukin, from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit, said: “It is encouraging that the majority of the vehicles that officers looked at had roadworthy tyres which had obviously been maintained well. That said, there are still a minority who caused us concern. Tyres need to be maintained, especially at this time of the year when road conditions are more dangerous. We don’t want anyone to be seriously injured or even killed on our roads, especially if a collision could have been easily prevented with simple vehicle maintenance. Our aim is to educate drivers so that they know how important it is to keep checking their tyres.”
