Tommy Banks Black Swan, Oldstead 8


•••• Local Life

A

t just 24, Tommy Banks is believed to be the youngest chef in the country to hold a Michelin Star.

For a youngster who was banned from his food technology classes at school because “I was a little bit disruptive”, it is incredible to believe that Tommy Banks is now head chef at one of Yorkshire’s finest Michelin-starred restaurants. “I wasn’t a bad lad I just wasn’t really interested in school.” Instead Tommy’s ambition was to be a sporting superstar. His particular passion is cricket and he played for Yorkshire as a schoolboy. Tommy managed to gain ten GCSE’s at Easingwold School but had no desire to continue with education. He left school in 2006, just at the time that his parents, Anne and Tom, bought the pub just a stone’s throw from the family farm at Oldstead on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. After months of renovation work, The Black Swan was born and Tommy – then aged just 17 - started work in the kitchen while older brother James headed up front of house. Unfortunately at 18 Tommy became quite ill - struck down with colitis, a painful inflammation of the colon which resulted in three major operations, and he was ill for nearly two years before recovering. “I am fit and well now but when you have been very ill you stop taking everything for granted. You feel like you want to achieve something much more than maybe you did before.” With unstinting support from wife and childhood sweetheart Laura, Tommy went back into the kitchen, building up his strength and knowledge as the team developed and the Black Swan’s

reputation flourished. The Black Swan gained 3 AA Rosettes and a Michelin Star in 2011. Last year Tommy took over as head chef so when it came to the publication of the 2014 Michelin Guide, all eyes were on him. The pressure that little red book can put a chef under is immense, but Tommy is a pretty determined young man, and the Black Swan kept it's star. A remarkable achievement given that it's the only one in the area (the nearest being 40 miles away). It’s not just dedicated followers of Michelin that make the pilgrimage to the unassuming little village of Oldstead, often taking advantage of The Black Swan’s four bedrooms. Though the 9 course tasting menu is a special treat for food lovers, The Banks family have plenty of local customers, and they like to cater for everyone by also offering a set lunch menu and an à la carte menu. With his farming background, Tommy is a great enthusiast for locally grown meat and produce. “We like to keep things interesting you can’t stand still,” he explains. “Otherwise it’ll get boring.” He keenly follows a fitness regime, running regularly before work and he recently completed the Tough Mudder - a gruelling 12 mile assault course race - to raise money for Crohn's and Colitis UK. It’s clear that both the business and raising the profile of Colitis are huge driving factors for Tommy. “When I wake up in the morning, I am always keen to get on and achieve something!”

Helmsley pool was built in 1968 as a freshwater heated pool measuring 20 metres x 8metres. Helmsley residents remember the excitement surrounding its construction particularly as dynamite was required to blast the hole out!! According to the Lidos Organisation it is now only one of about 100 such pools remaining in the Country outside London. In her book “Liquid assets”, published by English Heritage in 2005, Janet Smith describes our pool as, “A glorious little pool nestling at the foot of the North Yorkshire Hills”. Those of you who have visited in the past couple of years will have noticed that rather than “nestling” it was “crumbling”! The pool itself is in very good condition, the water quality excellent and it can maintain a temperature of 28F. The changing and reception block however was so desperately in need of refurbishment that in 2013 it was in real danger of permanent closure.

NOT ANY LONGER... Thanks to funding from the North York Moors National Park’s Community Grant and the Cooperative Community Fund, gone are the rotting doors and windows, the showers that had been unusable for several years and the leaks in the ceiling etc. and by June this year when we shall be opening again you will find a bright, ‘fit for purpose’, welcoming space. The showers will be moved outside. The dismal grey concrete wall around the perimeter will be transformed – enhanced by colourful contributions from some of our Ryedale Primary school pupils. We are sure you’ll see a big improvement.

BUT WE’RE NOT STOPPING THERE! The concrete pool surrounds are cracked and subsiding in places and in constant need of repair and the grass surrounds make demands on the precious time of the Pool attendants – grass cuttings and muddy feet find their way into the water! Phase 2 for 2015 will be the re-surfacing of the pool surrounds with very attractive resin bound aggregate and artificial grass. There will be a small, safe, enclosed Toddlers’ play area. The estimated cost of this project (around £35,000) will be a challenge to raise. We will continue to apply for funding and will have fund raising events. In addition, private donations and offers of support in the form of skills and materials from Ryedale businesses will make that achievable.
