Hospital clings on to A&E in face of growing public anger

A CENTURY 20 ON, WE WILL REMEMBER THEM The Scarborough Hospital picket line during the 48-hour strike (photo by John Margetts)

SCARBOROUGH Hospital is clinging on to its A&E department in the face of mounting public fear over NHS cutbacks. A petition opposing cuts attracted about 25,000 signatures within a week. The NHS’s Humber Coast and Vale area, which includes York and Scarborough, has been told by government to find savings to plug a massive £420m funding gap by 2021. Anger greeted NHS representatives at two public meetings called at short notice by the health trust and attended by hundreds of people. After a period of uncertainty, the trust is now saying it will protect and enhance the A&E department, although it isn’t known if other services might be reduced or lost in exchange. Dr Becky Chandler, who lives in Scarborough and practises in Whitby, said: “The review [of acute services] is a significant public consultation on what we, as Scarborough residents, think about the future models that are proposed for the hospital.

“A private company has come to review just Scarborough Hospital”, Dr Chandler said. “They are not looking at York Hospital, despite them having merged. Yet senior York-based personnel are having a say on our future services and what should be reduced here and possibly expanded in York”. Dr Chandler said the dangers include: * Reducing or stopping emergency surgery and moving some routine elective surgery elsewhere, likely York, Hull or Middesbrough. This means, in an emergency, travelling far away from loved ones, even having the risk of travelling further to see a doctor, on roads that aren't even dual carriageways. Travelling for pre-op assessments, having surgery there and then post-op follow-ups. * Reducing obstetric cover to a midwifery-led unit. “Any complications would be shipped to either York or Hull. “Midwives can't control bleeding, do Caesarean sections, even offer alternative pain relief such as an epidural. Imagine travelling in an ambulance or being stuck on the A64 while in labour and scared”, Dr Chandler said. Continued on page 2.

Continued from cover story... * Downgrading A&E to a minor-injuries unit (MIU) led by nurse practitioners. “We are a trauma unit as we are so far away from other hospitals. Therefore if we become an MIU we will lose this and our population will be at risk. * “Pushing outpatient appointments into primary care when waiting for a GP appointment is already weeks away. Some local GPs are leaving due to the pressure and we have very few trainees coming to train in our area”. * Closing the hospital’s paediatric ward. “Our children will be shipped to York and families will be split at times when they need to be together”, Dr Chandler said. She added that about a third of Scarborough residents don’t have a car. “We are a poor area, over 40 miles from any other hospital. The number of attendees to A&E in the summer rises by 13.5%. We need Scarborough Hospital. Otherwise we won't get tourists, we won't get future employees or new businesses setting up”. York NHS Foundation Trust chief executive Mike Procter says there are enormous pressures on NHS staffing in the area and that local NHS bodies have started a review on the delivery of health services. He says no specific proposal had been made and that many scenarios have been suggested and are being considered. The public meetings were convened to “eliminate an awful lot of the scenarios” He insisted that Scarborough’s A&E department would not be downgraded to a minor-injuries unit. A firm of consultants, McKinsey, has been paid £150,000 to scrutinise the hospital with a view to cutting costs and achieving sustainability through centralisation, among other objectives. A spokesperson said: “Healthcare is changing, people are living longer and there is a growing need for different types of health and care services, which are often provided outside of hospitals. This should mean that, with increased out-of-hospital care, fewer people

PATIENTS at Peasholm GP surgery will have to go to Prospect Road surgery for some services, from 12 November. The move does not entail a reduction in services, says the Central Healthcare group, which formed in July. It also includes Belgrave and Falsgrave surgeries. Peasholm surgery will provide bookable appointments with nurses and GPs from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday. Prospect Road surgery will host on-the-day appointments as well as a late opening service until 8pm. Central Healthcare development manager

Countdown to Christmas Remember, remember, THE Boyes Santa docks in Scarborough harbour on 17 November at 10.30am. If previous years are anything to go by, hundreds of people will flock to the seafront to enjoy the spectacle. After arriving on a fishing boat, Santa will board a sleigh parked in West Pier and process up Eastborough to Boyes, where he will take up residence in a grotto for the duration of the festivities. The store’s windows on Queen Street, Market Street and Cross Street will feature spectacular displays.

The countdown to Christmas continues the next day, 18 November, with the Yorkshire Coast Radio roadshow on Foreshore Road. Guests will include actors appearing in pantomimes at the Stephen Joseph theatre, the YMCA and the Spa. The highlights include a fireworks display on the beach at 5pm, partly funded by county councillor Janet Jefferson through her share of the authority’s locality budget. Other sponsorship is welcome, Janet says. Foreshore Road, from Aquarium Top roundabout to Eastborough traffic lights, will be closed to traffic between 2pm and 7.30pm.

The Boyes Santa arrives at the harbour

the 5th of November MOST of the bonfires and fireworks displays are being held on the south side of Scarborough. Guy Fawkes night is traditionally 5 November, although some community bonfires will be lit two nights before. Public bonfires and fireworks displays will be held in Burniston, West Ayton, Cayton, Filey and Hunmanby - but not Scarborough. The only bonfires in town will probably be private ones and those lit on the north and south beaches. The two sites favoured by the Lions in years gone by are now occupied by the Alpamare waterpark in Burniston Road and the UTC and Coventry University in Weaponness Valley. Filey Lions’ bonfire at West Avenue car park will be lit at 6.15pm (Sat 3 Nov). Lanterns will be judged at 6.45pm and a fireworks display will start at 7.15pm. No charge will be made for admission but donations will be appreciated. A bonfire at Yedmandale quarry off Cockrah Road in West Ayton (Mon 5 Nov) will be lit at 6.30pm, followed by fireworks at 7. Entry will be free. A collection will help pay for a free Christmas party for local children. Hot food will be on sale. It’s being organised by Ayton’s jubilee committee. Parking will be limited so it’s best to go on foot if you can - but wear boots. A bonfire behind the village hall in Burniston will be lit at 6.30pm, followed by fireworks at 7 (Mon 5 Nov). The gates will open at 6. Adults will be charged £4, children £1. A fireworks display will be staged at the McCain sports field near Cayton at 6.45pm (Mon 5 Nov). Entry to the ground is from 5pm.

Construction work at the venue, which has been going on for at least a year, means there won’t be a bonfire and the carpark is much smaller than usual. People are advised to walk if they can. It is being organised by Cayton & Osgodby Parish Council and Eastfield Town Council. Children from Cayton and Overdale schools have designed colourful posters to publicise the event. The winners were Evie Mainprize, Harry Norton, Scarlett Bonney-Davis, Jovi Tate, Alfie McDowell, Scott Newman, Max Winterbottom, Alisha Rogers, Kai Hubery and Tom Pratt (Overdale) and Poppy Fletcher, Jake Morley, Lacie Hall, Molly Allanson, Demi-Lea Henson, Poppy Sixsmith, Blake Arliss and Leah Mainprize (Cayton). Scarborough Autograss Club’s bonfire will be at the Raceway in Bartindale Road, Hunmanby (Sat 10 Nov). It will be lit at around 6pm, followed by fireworks at 7. Again, no charge will be made for entry but the Yorkshire Air Ambulance team will be there with their heli-van and stall. It will feature a Guy Fawkes competition, apple bobbing, face painting and a bouncy castle. Toffee apples, candy apples, doughnuts, roast chestnuts, popcorn and sweets will be on sale. * People are not allowed to take their own fireworks or sparklers to any of the events because of health and safety rules. * Before lighting your bonfire, please check that hedgehogs haven’t crawled into it. Use broom handles to lift from the base of the pile and shine torches, looking and listening carefully for any signs of life.

The organisers, from Scarborough Dementia area, on an excellent job”. Action Alliance and the Alzheimer’s Society, said 225 people had taken part. Over £4,500 was raised for the society on the 3km walk around Peasholm Park. The walkers included MP Robert Goodwill, his wife Maureen and two of the Grumbleweeds. The event was sponsored by St Cecilia’s, Pattison’s, Proudfoots, Columbus Sound System, Blockbookers, Wilkinsons and Adverset. Saint Cecilia’s managing director Mike Padgham commented: “I was delighted that our staff were able to join Some of the walkers had twice as many legs as the rest

FOUR people have been arrested in Eastfield on suspicion of supplying class-A drugs. The first, a 32-year-old local woman, was stopped and searched in a street on 12 October. This led police to a property where a 38-yearold woman from Scarborough, a 26-year-old man from Liverpool and a 39-year-old man from Manchester were arrested. They were all released while the investigation continues. The police describe this activity as county-

lines activity. This is a type of organised crime in which drug dealers from urban areas such as Manchester, Liverpool and West Yorkshire, use violence and threats to take over the homes of vulnerable people, including drug users and people with mental or physical disabilities, to store and sell drugs in a tactic which the police call cuckooing. They often exploit children by forcing them to travel to smaller towns such as Scarborough, York and Harrogate to sell drugs, using violence and intimidation.

Violent drug dealer gets 15 years A VIOLENT drugdealer operating in Scarborough has been sent down for causing life-threatening injuries with a Rambo-style hunting knife. Harry Lomax, 22, from Liverpool, carried out the attack on Ramshill Road in February.  The victim, a 29-year-old local man, suffered five stab wounds to his body, requiring emergency treatment at Hull Royal Infirmary. Lomax ran off but was spotted a short distance away by PC Steven Normandale. While waiting for back-up to arrive, PC Normandale detained Lomax, who still carried the hunting knife and a lock knife.

Lomax was involved in dealing crack cocaine and heroin in Scarborough, regularly travelling to the town from Liverpool. The police describe this activity as county-lines crime. He was charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, two counts of having an offensive weapon, two counts of having class-A drugs with intent to supply and possession of cannabis. He pleaded guilty at Leeds crown court on 15 October and was sentenced to 15 and a half years’ imprisonment. DC James Temple of the serious-crime team said: “I welcome the lengthy prison sentence handed to Lomax for this extremely violent attack.  “It sends a stark warning to other drug dealers who enter Scarborough who are prepared to come armed with weapons and use violence”.

Scarborough Review •

Cemetery joyrider is punished A SCARBOROUGH teenager who went on a joyride through Woodlands cemetery in February has been punished. The 17-year-old male, who can’t be named for legal reasons, drove recklessly around the graveyard. He gouged deep ruts in the wet grass and splashed mud onto gravestones. He pleaded guilty to driving without due care and attention, driving without a licence and driving without third-party insurance. He has been disqualified from holding or applying for a driver’s licence for 12 months. If he then applies for a licence, it will be endorsed. The teenager was ordered to pay £200 in compensation to Scarborough Council and £85 in costs to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

He received referral orders to the North Yorkshire youth-offenders team for each of the offences.

Collection raises £1,149 for Indian flood victims A COLLECTION at two supermarkets raised £1,149 to help people in the Indian state of Kerala, following the region’s worst flooding in over a century. In addition to a death toll estimated at over 400, over a million people are thought to have been forced to leave their homes. The Rotary Club of Scarborough Cavaliers and the Rotary Club of Scarborough joined forces to help with the appeal. The president of the former club, Tony Stevens, said: “We are delighted by the support this appeal received from the local community and we are indebted to Proudfoot’s in Newby and Morrison’s for allowing us to use their premises for the collection”. The money will go towards rebuilding

A YOUNG Scarborough woman who has triumphed over adversity has had her achievements recognised. Sami Kirby, 31, has won an award from the Yorkshire and Humber Prince’s Trust. The awards recognise the achievements of young people who have succeeded against the odds, improved their chances in life and had a positive impact on their local community. Sami says: “When I was very young, I was a victim of abuse. It made me feel alone and worthless”. By the time she was 13, she had started skipping school and running away from home. “The only thing I looked forward to was going to my grandparents’ house and helping them in the garden. It gave me a peace I didn’t come close to anywhere else”.  Soon Sami’s life got out of control; she drank, took drugs and moved from one town to another. “I lived on the streets or in hostels and grew cannabis to fund my alcohol habit. What makes it worse is that I thought it was all just part of normal life”. It wasn’t until Sami received a suspended prison sentence that she realised what a mess her life was in. “After that, I got counselling for my depression and joined my local conservation society. I started growing my own veg and plants and even won awards for my produce. “Then I met a Prince's Trust rep at my local JobCentre and they planted a seed of hope”.

The trust encouraged Sami to attend its enterprise programme, a four-day course that helps young unemployed people start a business. “With the help of the trust, I managed to write a business plan and secure a £1,300 start-up grant to launch a gardening and growing business, SK Gardens. I gained one of my first qualifications then got my chainsaw licence and passed my driving test. “I'd be lying if I said I didn't still doubt myself and my abilities at times, but because of the trust and the support of my grandparents, I am self-sufficient and so much happier. I have around 20 regular customers and am diversifying my business to keep me going through the winter when things get quiet. Life has changed completely since I found the trust”.

Sami Kirby accepts her award from Tony Wales

Choc-shop helps combat loneliness A POPULAR chocolate shop is helping to fight loneliness in Scarborough. Amelia’s Chocolate, which recently moved to the former Evening News office in Aberdeen Walk, is to host weekly chocolate-andchatter sessions. They will start on 5 November, from 10am to noon. Business owner Amelia Forrest explained: “We know loneliness is a concern for many. It is sad to hear that some people can go days and not talk to anyone.

“As we are so close to the town centre, the post office and bus stops, we’re hoping to provide a warm welcome and some company for anyone that would like to pop in. There will be someone here to offer a listening ear”. * Daily halloween workshops are being run at Amelia’s until 4 November, from 9am. Amelia says: “We use the finest Belgian chocolate for our workshops which last up to an hour and cost £10 per child”. * Amelia is to launch a range of Christmas gifts on 8 November, from 6-8pm.

Christmas fair at Royal Hotel Prescott at business awards at Spa A CHRISTMAS fair is to be run by Etsy North Yorkshire Coast & Moors at the Royal Hotel in Scarborough on 1 December, from 10am to 4pm. It will feature 24 manufacturers and designers who sell on Esty, a website for handcrafted goods, ranging from bags to bangles. Event organiser Katy Armstrong says: “This is a wonderful opportunity for shoppers from

Ten old lags serve time in old jail Words and photo by Dave Barry TEN local luminaries were ‘imprisoned’ during hospice care week in October. The ‘prisoners’ included borough mayor Joe Plant, who was accused of hoarding dirty cups in the mayor’s parlour at the town hall in Scarborough. He said he was hoping to raise at least £1,000 in pledges to ‘spring him from jail’. Another jailbird, businessman John Senior, said: “I got banged up with a bunch of similar articles and could only get out once I had reached my bail target of £1,650”. The 10 old lags were taking part in the second annual Jail and Bail fundraiser run by Saint Catherine’s at the former prison in Dean Road. They had been accused of such crimes as “battering and afray with vinegary intent”, “being drunk and disorderly in the Beerhouse”, “only going to networking events for the food”, “midnight abductions of Shaun the Sheep and Miss Piggy”, “the theft of pounds of body fat from people all over Scarborough”, “driving topless on the A64” and “not fundraising in the local community”.

Using their phones, the pretend-prisoners had to persuade people to bail them out with donations. But people who wanted them to stay behind bars could pay for that too. The other crooks were Natalie Campbell, Allison Ascough, Carey Bilton, Ashley Tyson, Nick Henderson, Chris Makin, Joy Sharples and Nick Sharples. Keeping them in order and trying to prevent escapes was hardball warder Rob Green of Scarborough & Ryedale Community Cycling, based at the old prison. Hospice care week, with a Heart my Hospice theme, was a busy time for Saint Catherine’s. Staff spread the word through clinical awareness days, an open day and a volunteer recruitment day. Nationwide, about 2,000 hospice shops participated in the week, including 11 run by Saint Catherine’s. “It was a great week for the community to show support for Saint Catherine’s in their own way – just giving us supportive comments on social media, doing fundraising, learning about our services, or volunteering”, said a spokesperson.

The 10 ‘prisoners’ included borough mayor Joe Plant, front (to order photos ring 353597)

Hundreds of adults and children in Father Christmas costumes will walk and run along Scarborough seafront. There are two options, both starting at the Sea Life Centre at 11am.

After the event, the Santas will be given free entry to the Sea Life Centre; friends and

families can get half-price entry. Organiser Rhiannon Hunt says: “We are excited to see what this year brings. It promises to be a fantastic day full of festive family fun. It is always such a spectacular sight to see hundreds of Santas running along the seafront”. The entry fees - £15 for adults and £5 for children - includes a Santa suit. Entrants can register on the hospice website, The event is being sponsored by Pinkney Grunwell.

Golfers have raised over £5,000 for hospice

North Cliff Golf Club members celebrate their achievement (to order photos ring 353597)

Words and photos by Dave Barry SCARBOROUGH golfers have raised over £5,000 for Saint Catherine’s. North Cliff Golf Club staged numerous events throughout the year ending in September. The captains of its men’s and ladies teams, John Holborn and Janet Hall, both chose the hospice as the beneficiary of their fundraising. John’s main event was the captain’s weekend at the end of June. A silent auction raised £1,200. John says the idea came from his son Daryl Kelly, who is the resident professional at a club near Bristol. Lots included a professional golf bag, fourball vouchers, two paintings, a putter and various items donated by members. Janet’s main fundraising events were a coffee morning in November and a fashion show by Moments of Huntriss Row in March, which raised about £600. The other events included a make-up demonstration with generous help from Body Shop and various smaller activities; a Halloween event raised about £140. The club’s 400 members supported the fundraising by attending events, buying raffle tickets, making donations, etc. A jar on the club bar collected loose change. Saint Catherine’s was chosen as John’s wife

Lorna and another member, Pat Palmer, are volunteers at the hospice. Lorna is in Hackness Ladies Choir, which performed at the club in December. All together, £5,212 was raised and presented to hospice fundraiser Debbie Kay. The club’s new men’s captain, Colin Glaves, has chosen Prostate Cancer UK as his charity of the year. New ladies captain Sue Bower has chosen Mencap.

Music festival in Cayton raises £2,000 A MUSIC festival celebrated Cayton Playing Fields Association’s 50th anniversary raised £2,000. The money was shared equally between Saint Catherine’s and Martin House children’s hospice. The event was organised by the club’s committee including secretary Malcolm MacGregor, chair Rob Goodwill, Kim Goodwill, Joanne Calvert and Brian Pilsbury.

Malcolm said they were “astonished” at the amount raised, “because we have never done anything like it before”. Malcolm’s son Paul organised the festival line-up of five or six bands including his band Super-Fi. “Hundreds of people attended and everyone gave their time for free”, he added. The event featured a bouncy castle, a raffle, a tombola and an auction.

Dementia champion wins Pedestrians’ legs broken by hit-and-runners unsung-hero award A DEMENTIA champion has won an unsunghero award for sending Scarborough on the way to becoming dementia friendly. Tim Kirkup was nominated earlier this year and was presented with his award by Kim Leadbeater. Kim is an ambassador for the Jo Cox Foundation, set up after the murder of her sister, MP Jo Cox, in 2016. Tim chairs Scarborough Dementia Action Alliance and acts as an ambassador and representative of Scarborough Alzheimer's Society. Both are voluntary roles. Every week, he goes cycling with a young man with dementia and swimming with a group of people with dementia. He supports a weekly Singing for the Brain group and monthly activity cafes in Scarborough and Filey. Tim has undertaken every training opportunity, seeking out information and support for those with dementia. He began questioning Scarborough’s poor diagnosis rate, among other issues, and is challenging decision makers to make changes locally to benefit those affected by dementia. Tim is a dementia champion and has created 1,845 dementia friends through delivery of

PEDESTRIANS were hospitalised with serious injuries following two hit-and-run incidents in Scarborough. A 52-year-old man sustained a fractured right ankle and facial injuries when he was hit by a car in Princess Street at around 10.30pm on 7 October. The car, described by police as “small, blue, old-style”, did not stop and drove into St Sepulchre Street. In the second incident, a seven-year-old girl’s leg was broken by a hit-and-run motorcyclist in Barrowcliff, Scarborough.

Tim Kirkup with Kim Leadbeater 119 dementia awareness sessions across the area and to a range of audiences. As a result, Scarborough is well on the way to becoming officially designated as dementia friendly.

Sponsored toddle around the bays THE third annual sponsored toddle in aid of Scarborough Hospital’s special-care baby unit takes place on 8 December. The three-mile walk, starting at the Spa at 10am, will end at North Bay Railway, which will have a Santa’s grotto. About 200 people took part in each of the first two walks, says hospital fundraiser Maya Liversidge. They were mostly staff, former patients and their families and friends. Fancy dress is encouraged.

A GREEN-FINGERED woman from Wrench Green, near Hackness, won a cut-glass decanter at the 40th Ganton & District Horticultural Association Show, at Ganton village hall. Glynis Francis, 78, created seven floral arrangements with flowers from her garden.

The earlier walks raised £9,000, which allowed the unit to upgrade its parent and family area with new beds, bedding and homely items. Maya says: “They have had a milk kitchen installed which allows parents to make feeds up which in turn encourages bonding, learning and increased confidence”. Staff buy gifts for patients and siblings at Christmas and create journey books for patients, animated with stickers, photos and words.

She said: “I was shocked but pleasantly surprised to win such a nice award. I made the arrangements using hydrangea, red roses and sweet peas”. Mrs Francis is a member of Hackness Ladies Choir, the Scalby and Newby Twinning Association and Scarborough Talking Newspaper. Glynis Francis

Driver caught doing 57mph in Valley Road THE police are urging motorists to slow down as drivers dramatically exceed speed limits. The highest speed recorded in a 30mph zone in Scarborough over the last 18 months was 57mph, in Valley Road. But that’s nothing compared to other parts of North Yorkshire. The highest speed recorded in any 30mph zone in the county during the last 18 months was in Wetherby Road in Harrogate, where a driver was clocked at 82mph. The second fastest was clocked at 74mph. Another was caught doing 103mph in a 40mph zone. The highest speed ever recorded by a police mobile safety camera in North Yorkshire was 144mph in a 70mph limit in York. Police spokesman Andy Tooke said: “People

She was taken to hospital for treatment to the broken leg and cuts after being injured by a small off-road motorbike. A 29-year-old man has been arrested and placed on conditional bail. The incident happened in Colescliffe Road at around 7.50pm on 18 October. The police are appealing for witnesses to both incidents. Ring 101 and quote reference 12180187781 for the first one and 12180195272 for the second one. To remain anonymous, pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

sometimes question why we use mobile safety cameras to enforce speed limits. “Imagine taking your children to a playground or walking them to school, or helping an elderly relative across the road, when a driver approaches at more than 80mph. “The consequences of hitting a pedestrian or cyclist at that speed would be absolutely horrendous. The chance of a child surviving if they were hit at 82mph is virtually nil”. Speed directly increases the chance of injury or death in a collision. If pedestrians are hit by a vehicle at 40mph, they are an average of four-and-a-half times more likely die than at 30mph, according to figures from safety charity Rospa.

TWO men and a woman have been jailed for a total of 10 years for a series of handbag and purse thefts across the UK. One of the thefts was at Bon Marche in Scarborough on 23 November last year. Piotr Molda, 45, from Hull, was charged with robbery and given a five-year sentence for conspiracy to steal, for this and various other offences. A trio including Molda targeted a number of elderly shoppers in supermarkets and shops between September 2017 and April 2018. An investigation involved “months of hard work, long hours and determination by our officers in gathering the evidence for these offences”, the police said. “These people have been targeting their victims relentlessly and deliberately up and down the country. They were organised and ruthless in their pursuit to steal from unsuspecting and innocent victims.

“We must remember that many of these victims were elderly”, the police said. “They were put through a very distressing experience which was not only inconvenient Piotr Molda but upsetting for them”. On 15 October, at Grimsby crown court, judge Simon Jack described the offences as “appalling” and said the three carried out a “carefully calculated plan to target the most vulnerable in society”. He noted that the average age of the victims was 76 or 77 and that the trio “made a business out of elderly vulnerable people”.

Apprentice brickies build their own training centre A BUILDING where apprentice brickies will be trained is being built by apprentice brickies. Two Scarborough Tec brickwork apprentices are building workshops in the college’s new engineering and construction centre at its Filey Road campus.

He said: “I’ve learnt a lot from it. It price and calculate materials. “I’ve been running my business for four feels weird to think we are building the years. It’s important that I take apprentices workshops where future apprentices will be on as I have a high demand for work and the learning.

Amy sets ‘a superb example’ OLDER readers may remember a song called Amy, written to commemorate aviator Amy Johnson's historic solo flight from England to Australia in 1930. One person who remembers it is Malcolm Smith, chairman of Scarborough Talking News, who says the lyrics could equally apply to another Amy. Amy-Kay Pell is an arts and dance student who starred recently in the YMCA’s production of Grease. She is one of the STN volunteers who read the news for recordings listened to by blind and sight-impaired people. Malcolm says: “Amy is setting a superb example to the young people of our town”. He recently presented Amy with a certificate of appreciation in recognition of her contribution to the charity.

CHILDREN have planted thousands of purple crocus bulbs in Scarborough to highlight world polio day. They buried about 2,000 corms in a flowerbed near the Rotunda Museum. They were helped by members of the council’s parks department and the Rotary Club of Scarborough Cavaliers, which organised it. Chris Roe, the council’s deputy parks and countryside manager, said the flowers would bloom as early as February if the winter is mild and as late as April if it is severe. “They regenerate so we should get 10 to 15 years out of them”, said Chris, who likes the idea that the children will see the crocus every time they pass in spring - and may eventually take their own children to see them. They were joined by borough mayor Cllr Joe Plant. Another 1,000 corms were planted at two primary schools: Newby & Scalby and Brompton. The children who planted bulbs near the Rotunda were from Newby & Scalby and the Scarborough Pupil Referral Service, based at Westwood. The colour purple was chosen as children

immunised with the polio vaccine have their fingers stained with a purple dye to show they have been vaccinated. Club president Tony Stevens said: “Rotary, along with its partners, has reduced polio cases by 99.9% since 1988 and only three countries still have the disease. “Rotarians have helped immunise more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries with the overall objective of eradicating polio worldwide,” he added. Until polio is eradicated, every child in the world must be immunised against it - even though there are now only 20 known cases worldwide, in just three countries: Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria. “We are this close to eradicating polio”, says Rotarian Venkatesh Udupa, holding his thumb and forefinger half an inch apart, in a gesture adopted by “We are this close to Rotary as part of its eradicating polio”, said Josh Scotter, 14, and global campaign.

Council buys Travelodge for £14m SCARBOROUGH Council has bought the town’s Travelodge hotel for £14m. The authority hopes the purchase will deliver £328,000 of its targeted £600,000 annual savings. No public money was used for the purchase, which was made possible via the Public Works Loan Board, a government body which lends money to public bodies like the council. The 140-room hotel in St Nicholas Cliff is let to Travelodge for an unexpired term of almost 30 years with five yearly rent reviews. The council has declined to say who the building belonged to, except that it was a UK-based charity advised by two London property investment firms, Lewis & Partners and Knight Frank. It is the first major investment aligned with the council’s new commercial property investment strategy. It is part of a plan to achieve £5m budget savings in the next three financial years while allowing for the efficient

delivery of services to the public. Council leader Derek Bastiman said: “The strategy provides a strong and viable framework for acquiring commercial property investments and pursuing redevelopment and regeneration opportunities that can deliver positive financial returns”. The Travelodge was previously the St Nicholas Hotel, owned by the Craig-Tyler family.


Charity will use grant to buy new minibus A £41,500 grant has been awarded to a Scarborough charity which supports older people and people with disabilities. Dial a Ride, based in Londesborough Road, will use the money from the Garfield Weston Foundation to buy a new wheelchairaccessible minibus. Dial a Ride manager Julie Banks says: “This grant will expand and improve our services both in terms of the number of people we are able to help and the geographical area we cover. “The transport that Dial a Ride provides to some of the most vulnerable members of our local community is a vital factor in reducing loneliness and social isolation while at the same time helping to keep people independent and healthy. “The grant recognises the invaluable contribution made by our workforce, 90% of whom are volunteers, and the real difference they make to our passengers lives”.

A customer aged 75 says that when she moved to West Ayton five years ago, a bus went around the village twice a day, five days a week. “But with cutbacks this service finished and I am not in a position to afford taxis. “I have used Dial a Ride for years”, she said. “They don’t just take me on shopping trips. I use them to meet friends and attend hospital and dentist appointments. Dial a Ride is a lifeline; without them I would be very isolated as I live on my own. They have wonderful staff who always help passengers with shopping etc – so kind and caring”. Foundation director Philippa Charles says: “What really impressed our trustees was the amount of volunteering and community involvement that’s going on across the UK. We heard about so many amazing projects involving local people who are helping their communities thrive - regardless of cuts, Brexit debates and other challenges”.

Annual event seeks engineers and scientists of tomorrow THOUSANDS of children had fun while exploring career possibilities at the ninth annual science and engineering event at the Spa in Scarborough. Many of the region’s principal employers and organisations were among the exhibitors. The young visitors voted on their favourite aspects of the event. They said the Construction Skills Village at Eastfield had the best interactive exhibits; Sirius Minerals had the best visuals; Hull University’s stand was the most informative; and Dale Power Solutions came out tops for its apprenticeships. The event was run by Scarborough Business Ambassadors, whose chairman Peter Wilkinson said: “There are enormous career opportunities for young people and the need for design and practical skills is immense, locally and nationally. “This year's event included more dynamic and interactive displays for the students and the feedback from the businesses and exhibitors has been great. “To have the likes of Bosch, Boeing and Bentley representatives in Scarborough to show young people the range of possibilities and the importance of design and engineering to everyday life is so important”, said Mr Wilkinson, whose efforts led to the creation

of Scarborough UTC for 14 to 18-year-olds. Boeing’s UK chief Donald Hendrickson praised the Scarborough business community at an event dinner. The main speaker was a railway civil engineer with Mott MacDonald. Victoria Sutherland said that when she was 16, she wasn’t interested in engineering but had nevertheless forged an exceptional career in

Licence refusal puts pub in the dog house A recently opened pub in Scarborough has been shut down by the council. The Dog House, on North Marine Road, has been refused a premises licence by the authority’s licensing sub-committee. The pub, previously called the King & Cask and before that the Durham, had been operating without a licence since it opened in August. It had used two temporary event notices to lawfully operate for some of the time since opening, but had continued to sell alcohol outside the dates permitted. This was taken by the committee as evidence that the person running the pub didn’t have

the field, travelling the world and dealing with projects at the new London Waterloo station and in Australia. The children at the event travelled from primary and secondary schools and colleges throughout the borough: Graham, Scalby, St Augustine’s, St Peter’s, Northstead, St Martin’s, Friarage, Wheatcroft, Hinderwell, the Sixth Form College, UTC, TEC, Pindar,

the appropriate experience to manage it. Another reason for refusal was the pub’s request to stay open until 2.30am, in an area with a relatively high proportion of residential properties. In addition, the applicant could not satisfy councillors that the pub would not add to the problems already generated by the concentration of other pubs in the area. A new premises licence application has now been submitted, by the same applicant but with a different designated premises supervisor; and to close at midnight not 2.30am.

Acting degree students to audition by smartphone photo by Tony Bartholomew Students applying to join a new acting degree will record audition speeches on a smartphone to keep costs down. The degree is at the Scarborough campus of Coventry University, which has teamed up with the Stephen Joseph Theatre (SJT) to launch a BA honours course next September. In a bid to champion access for all, auditions will be free, removing some of the early financial barriers experienced by prospective drama students. The SJT’s artistic director Paul Robinson said: “Our course will see the first round of selftaped audition speeches – on, for instance, a smartphone, allowing us to keep the audition process manageable, free and appropriate by employing the contemporary digital techniques that are becoming more and more a part of our standard industry practice”.

The degree will train students in acting for stage, TV and radio. It will introduce them to non-traditional techniques such as presenting, corporate role-play, vlogging and acting for gaming. Students will make regular visits to the SJT, to gain experience of acting through masterclasses with artistic director Paul Robinson, associate directors and freelance professionals. They will receive mentoring by SJT staff on the inner workings of a regional theatre, including marketing, producing, fundraising and technical and stage management. In the third year, students will be able to audition for the SJT, with a view to joining the professional acting company. Uni spokesperson Kay Fraser (pictured with Paul Robinson and acting tutor Paul Elsam), said: “Our innovative new degree looks to

break down the financial barriers and make acting courses accessible for a more diverse group of people. “There has been much written about elitism in acting – be it real or perceived. What we are offering will train students in the profession but also ensure there is more of a level playing field when it comes to earning a living in the industry”. Mr Robinson said: “This exciting new course, with dynamic and free audition methods is aimed at the non-traditional actor for whom access to training may have previously been prohibitive. “There’s been much talk about making access to acting training more affordable but we still see drama schools charging an average of £60/£70, and often more, for auditions”. n For details, visit

Sweet Pea calendar helps Pam raises £620 on the day visitors have a sweet pee she never thought she’d see Words and photo by Dave Barry A CALENDAR is helping to keep public toilets open in Scalby. For the last few years, people caught short in Scalby have been able to spend a penny in the community-run public toilets. But only because a few public-spirited people have rallied round and raised enough money to look after them. The toilets were closed by the council in 2006, for about a year. During this period, desperate visitors would occasionally urinate in residents’ gardens. Something had to be done. They are now run by the Scalby Sweet Pea group, which took its name from the flowers that were placed in the ladies’ in the early years. It costs about £5,000 a year to maintain the lus by hiring professional cleaners and paying for public liability insurance and occasional redecorating. In the last year, the cisterns in the men’s urinal have been replaced. The next jobs will be to upgrade the ladies room and all the windows. This year, the toilets won a gold certificate at Newby and Scalby in Bloom in the category of best commercial garden. The group receives financial support from

Scalby Fair, Newby & Scalby Parish Council and donations made in a collecting box outside. For the last nine years, Adverset has printed a fundraising calendar for the group. “We are very grateful for the incredible generosity of Nick Thomas of Qdos and John Easby of Adverset for their help in sponsoring and printing the calendar,” says Mavis Wild, who came up with the calendar idea. The new one, a limited edition of 650, contains photos of attractive scenery in the Scalby area taken by Freddie Drabble, John Birdsall, Jayne Strutt, Jennifer Prior, David Wild, Pip Rowntree, Tricia Whelan, Lesley Newton, Andy Standing, Steve Robinson, Ian Hill and Betty Grundy. “It has been very successful and can be bought at various places in and around the village and in Ayton, Burniston and Stepney Hill Farm,” says Janet. They end up all over the world. “However, without the support of everyone, this vital village amenity would close. Please help us to keep them open. We need more volunteers”. To join the volunteers, submit photos for the 2020 calendar and for further information, ring Mavis on 369620 or email maviswild@

Pam and Jeff Taylor present £620 to Gill Blanchard of Cancer Research UK (to order photos ring 353597)

Words and photo by Dave Barry A WOMAN has raised £620 for cancer research at a party she didn’t think she’d live to see. Earlier this year, Pam Taylor of Columbus Ravine in Scarborough got the all-clear after two near-fatal skirmishes with cancer. In the dark days of a long battle with the disease, she was afraid she wouldn’t live to celebrate her golden wedding with husband Jeff. But she made it and the couple had a big bash at North Cliff Golf Club. The couple asked friends to make donations to Cancer Research UK in lieu of gifts. “The evening was a great success and we raised £620”, said a delighted Pam. The 50-voice Twilight Community Choir sang songs from the 60s and Pam’s friends from a line-dancing class in Burniston got down on the dancefloor. An anniversary cake featuring north-bay attractions was made by Kristin Kunhardt’s new venture Simply Sweet; a buffet was provided by Kirby Catering. In an interview with the Review in April, Pam said she couldn’t have survived without her friends. After her second cancer diagnosis, she had her womb, bladder, bowel, urethra and other

parts removed in an eight-hour operation. She was in hospital for six weeks. “Because I’ve had it twice almost in the same area, and my mother died of it, they performed a huge pelvic evacuation and plastic surgery”, she says. “It was a massive operation, the biggest one they do at Castle Hill Hospital”, said Pam, who was supported throughout by her linedancing chums. “They have been so supportive”, she said. They had a whip-round and took me out every week and contacted me all through my stay at Castle Hill. “They phoned me, they sent gifts and flowers and cards, and they are still taking me out”. Pam has spent two big birthdays in the shadow of cancer. The first time she had it, she was discharged just before her 60th, after eight intensive weeks of radiotherapy and chemotherapy at Princess Royal Hospital in Hull. She celebrated her 70th with a party at the golf club last August, not knowing if she was going to live or die. Her line-dancing friends attended and £700 was raised for Cancer Research. Pam, who was born Filey, and Scarboroughborn Jeff were married at St Oswald’s Church in Filey in 1968.

Cultural exchange marks 30th anniversary Words and photos by Dave Barry A CULTURAL exchange between Scarborough and the German town of Osterode-am-Harz has celebrated its 30th anniversary. Rudi Bräkel, organiser of the German end of the arrangement, has been visiting the Scarborough area with others for 30 years. The first time he came, in 1988, he brought his seven-year-old son Lennart, who was one of this year’s performers at a meal and concert at the parish hall in Scalby. Lennart Bräkel sang Leonard Cohen’s Halleluja with about 50 members of Scarborough Community Choir. The choir sang four numbers arranged by conductor Bill Scott and six-piece German band Los Losers performed skiffle, folk and pop.

The event was attended by about 120 people - the Osterode contingent, their hosts and a sprinkling of borough councillors including borough mayor Joe Plant, who told the visitors that Scarborough had been renamed Scarbados.

The four-day visit went very well according to Julia Thompson, who coordinates the visits from the English end, with help from the Anglo-German Society and the town hall. Scarborough and Osterode take turns to visit each other on alternate years. Next year, a group from Scarborough will fly to Osterode.

‘Volunteering is the perfect way of getting back into the world of work’ THE value of work experience was promoted to Jobcentre Plus customers at a voluntary event at Scarborough town hall. About 100 people explored volunteering possibilities at stalls run by numerous charities and organisations. Jobcentre recruitment managers Janine Richardson and Bron Dixon said: “It is well known that work experience improves skills and employers like to see motivated candidates with good experience”. They said evidence from health foundations and mental-health charities showed that helping others can be beneficial for mental health, helps tackle issues around social isolation and improves wellbeing. “Every day, we see how work-experience placements such as these can change people’s lives. “We are always reaching out to new community partners and organisations that can help to support our customers on their journey into work”. With this in mind, the Jobcentre invited eight of its key work-experience partners and representatives of the National Careers Service and an NHS programme called Improving Access to Psychological Therapies to provide specialist advice. “With four of the 10 organisations signed up to the Disability Confident scheme and two ‘quiet’ time slots, the event was tailored to support customers who may have needed more help to begin to tackle mental-health issues, social isolation and confidence issues, as well as improve their CVs in readiness for work”, Janine and Bron said. The exhibitors thought the two-hour event was well worth it, with many seeing over 30 people at their stands.

Scarborough Survivors had a good response, with many visitors. One visited the resource centre in Alma Square and signed up as a volunteer later the same day. Scarborough Mind registered “a lot of genuine interest” and a spokesperson for the British Heart Foundation (BHF) shop said: “We talked to 39 potential volunteers with eight taking contact details for future reference”. On the BHF stand were two members of staff who had started as volunteers and were now on the payroll. Emily Brady started nearly two years ago and has been paid for two days a week since in June. She likes the work and her colleagues so much that she works voluntarily on three other days. “I love it”, she says. Phillip Coombes joined BHF as a volunteer six years ago and has been a full-time member of staff for two and a half years. He is now assistant manager. “Everyone at BHF started as volunteers”, he says. Initially, they commit to a six-week workexperience placement. But many continue volunteering after that period. For example, Melanie Sutton has been a volunteer for two and a half years, progressing from the shop floor to the warehouse. “Volunteering is the perfect way of getting back into the world of work, even it’s just an hour a week”, she says. “It builds confidence and social skills. It’s addictive”. Besides the organisations mentioned above, those taking part included Sense, the Community Furniture Store, Yorkshire Coast Sight Support, the library and Beyond Housing. The event was opened by Jobcentre Plus service leader Jo Corney.

World’s biggest coffee morning raises £791

THE Scarborough and district fundraising group of Macmillan Cancer Support raised £791 at a coffee morning at the Grand Hotel. It was part of the world’s biggest coffee morning, which Macmillan organises every year. It featured a tombola and stalls selling Macmillan gifts, crafts, cakes and books.

Joan Forbes, who chairs the local fundraising group, said it is constantly surprised by, and grateful for, the generosity of Scarborough people and visitors. “We would like to thank the staff at the Grand Hotel and all those who helped on the day”, she added.

Remembrance services a century after World War One armistice REMEMBRANCE services will have added poignance this year, on the centenary of the signing of the World War One armistice. A century after the conflict ended, ceremonies around the world will mark the occasion in similar ways. Most of the churches in Scarborough, Filey and the surrounding villages have been planning services for much of the year. In Scarborough, the British Legion’s poppy appeal was launched at the Brunswick Centre by borough mayor Cllr Joe Plant. Certificates were presented to six long-serving poppy vendors. The standards of the Legion and various associations were paraded. On Sunday 4 November, the annual planting of poppy crosses will take place in the remembrance garden in Alma Square, starting at noon. Afterwards, a parade though the town centre to Bar Street will be led by the band of

the Yorkshire Volunteers. On Remembrance Sunday, 11 November, Queen Street Central Hall’s service will begin at 9.30am. It will feature the blessing of standards and wreaths, a drumhead ceremony and poppies falling during the silence period. It will be followed by a parade down to the harbour for wreaths to be laid at sea, says Legion branch secretary Ian Temple. Many of the participants at Queen Street will take part in Scarborough RNLI’s service in the lifeboathouse, beginning at 10.30am. The town’s main service will be held at Oliver’s Mount, starting at 10.30am. Poppy wreaths will be laid against the war memorial. A bus will leave the railway station at 10.10am to take people up to the Mount. The standard bearers will be organised by parade marshall Steve Jewell. Anyone with information about the servicemen

whose names are recorded on the rood screen at St James’s Church on Seamer Road is invited to visit between 10.30am and 3pm on 3 and 4 November, says warden Joanne Watson. The names belong to people who died in the World War I bombardment by German battleships. The church’s remembrance service will begin at 10.30am. St Columba Church in Dean Road will be open from 1-4pm on 9 and 10 November for people to view a large poppy display and information on the 12 members of the congregation who lost their lives in WW1. The church’s usual Sunday services, at 8am and 10am, will focus on the nation’s remembrance of all those lost, says warden Pauline Hainsworth. The Sunday service at St Laurence’s Church in Scalby will be conducted by Rev Lynn Hellmuth. It will begin at the usual 10am before moving outside to the war memorial for

Remembering the men who returned AN exhibition about the 184 men who returned to Scalby and Newby after WW1 can be seen at St Laurence’s Church rooms in Scalby. Just over 200 men from Scalby and Newby served their country during the Great War, of whom 199 had their names carved on the war shrine that used to stand on the triangle of grass next to the jubilee fountain in the village. “We will display what we have discovered about them and hope that some of their

descendants will come along and tell us more”, say organisers Lesley Newton and Denise Howell. “We feel it's the best way we can pay tribute to them”. Information about the 27 local men who lost their lives in the war and life in the village from 1914-21 will also be displayed. The exhibition can be viewed from 10am4pm on 10 November and 11.30am-4pm on 11 November.

the act of remembrance and laying of wreaths. A holly wreath will be laid at the altar of St John the Baptist Church in Cayton during a remembrance service beginning at 10.45am, taken by Rev Don MacIver. A wreath and small inscribed crosses will be placed on the grave of Corporal George Armstrong, born in Cayton in 1864. George emigrated to Canada and served in the Canadian army. He returned to Scarborough in 1917 while stationed in England and died in his room at the George Hotel. His widow asked for him to be buried at Cayton. Deacon Andrew Carter will lead the 10.30am service at Cayton Methodist Church, which will be decorated with poppies knitted by members of the congregation. Filey’s main service begins at St Oswald’s Church at 9.30am. At about 10.30am, a parade led by standard bearers will march to the remembrance gardens in Murray Street for a service officiated by the vicar of Filey, Rev Nigel Chapman. At 5.30pm, a torchlight parade will leave Filey bus station and head to the gardens for a short remembrance event. Battery-powered light batons will be handed out free to the first 200 people, in return for a donation to the British Legion. Rev Robert Hall will conduct a service at St Thomas’s Church in Gristhorpe at 2.30pm. Remembrance Day services in the Hertford benefice will be at All Saints Church in Muston (10am), St Nicholas’s Church in Ganton (10.45am), St Peter’s in Willerby and All Saints in Hunmanby (10.45am). The latter will be over the road at the Cross Hill war memorial, weather permitting; otherwise in the church. At All Saints in Muston, wreaths will be laid by the Legion, the parish council and Cllr Godfrey Allanson, on behalf of the county council. The church contains an unusual list, of all 62 local men who went to fight in the war. The names are carved on a wooden board which was in the village school until it closed. Using some of the proceeds of the annual scarecrow festival, Muston’s millennium committee is having the board restored, so it should last another 100 years. At 7.05pm, church bells around the country will be pealed. * Many other churches are holding Remembrance Day services; apologies if we have missed yours out. * At the service at St Oswald’s Church, the standard of the British Legion women’s section will be laid up, or decommissioned. It will be hung in the church later.

The ball will feature music by the Mixtapes, the Hero Bear, a professional photographer,

a raffle and an auction hosted by Angus Ashworth of Ryedale Auctioneers. Lots include days out at the races, a framed print by Robert Fuller, a mini-break and family days out. Tickets cost between £34.50 and £49.50. They can be booked by ringing 07870 811315, emailing and online at Eventbrite. Discounts are available for serving personnel and veterans.

Hackness is being yarnbombed by over 40,000 woollen poppies HACKNESS is to be yarnbombed with over 40,000 woollen poppies for Remembrance Day. Houses, stone walls and landmarks such as the monument and memorial seat outside the village hall will be adorned with fabric flowers. The reddest area will be the 1.8-mile stretch of road between the church and the village hall, where a life-sized figure of a soldier will stand. The poppies will be put up from 3-7 November and will stay up until the 15th. The front of the village school will be decorated by pupils who are learning about WW1, the people and animals of that time and the different coloured poppies. Younger children at Hackness under-5s group are recycling pop bottles into poppies. The transformation is being masterminded by a group calling itself the Hackness Yarn Bombers. The idea germinated at Rosie Asquith’s Crafty Articles group at Newby and Scalby Library in summer 2017. Yarnbomber Yve Boody says: “We thought about doing something on a more meaningful basis for the 2018 poppy appeal, especially as it would be marking 100 years since the end of WW1”. Inspired by yarn bombers in Thirsk, Saltburn and other parts of the country, Yve and her friends set themselves a challenge. Sponsors including Boyes, Proudfoots, John Guthrie and Hackness Grange Hotel enabled

a steering group to buy wool and netting and set up a weekly poppy workshop at the library. So far, they have knitted and crocheted some 40,000 poppies. Their efforts were boosted by contributions from Scotland, Wales, Norway, the USA, Canada and Australia. Applegarth Court day centre in Bridlington gave 424 poppies and a donation towards the cost of wool. Yve says: “Church craft groups, girl guides, band members and music teachers chipped in, with lots and lots of people uttering, ‘When you think of what those people went through’. “So many people have given their time and energy to knit, crochet and needle-felt poppies before the seemingly never-ending task of fixing them to netting. Three wonderfully skilled crochet queens produced about 1,000 metres of knitted rope to attach poppies to. Almost every item along the roadside has been looked at to adorn with poppies”. Hula hoops have been recycled into poppy garlands, highlighting the various poppy colours and their meanings.

A PARADE featuring about 100 illuminated poppy lanterns will precede an evening of remembrance at the Spa Grand Hall in Scarborough on Saturday 10 November. It will start at 5pm outside the Grand Hotel and finish at the Spa in time for people to take their seats inside. The lanterns will represent military and civilian casualties of WW1 from the Scarborough area. The parade will include standard bearers, veterans, cadets and people who were involved in decorating the lanterns. The service will include performances by the York and Dishforth Military Wives Choir, the Tony Peers Singers and Scarborough Concert Band. The audience will represent the armed forces, veterans and the borough’s youth and voluntary groups and organisations. The parade has been devised by the British

Legion, Scarborough Council and Dawn and Lee Threadgold of Animated Objects. The theatre company has been commissioned and funded by the authority to deliver a project entitled Stories of Remembrance. Three life-size wire sculptures of WW1 soldiers standing on what looks like sprawling red and green fields of poppies will evoke the spirit of remembrance, in Scarborough, Filey and Whitby. The sculptures will form an integral part of each town’s Remembrance Day services. They will then go on public display for a month at the Customer First centre in Scarborough, Filey Library and in Whitby. * Tickets for the service are free but should be booked by ringing 821888 or going online. Print them at home to avoid paying a £2 booking fee for collecting them at the box office or £2.50 to have them posted.

Castle beacon will symbolise an end to the darkness of war SCARBOROUGH castle is one of at least 1,000 places around the UK which will ignite a fire beacon on Remembrance Sunday, at 7pm. The Beacons of Light symbolise an end to the darkness of war and a return to the light of peace. Ten minutes earlier, at 6.55pm, 1,000 buglers will perform the Last Post next to the beacons. At 7.05pm, about 1,000 cathedrals and churches across the nation, and beyond, will ring out their bells in celebration of peace. The churches include All Saints in Muston. At the same time, 100 town criers in the UK and other countries will make an international cry for peace around the world.

It is all part of Battle’s Over, a series of commemorative events marking the armistice centenary and paying tribute to the millions killed or wounded in battle, and those on the home front who struggled with pain and loss. It will begin at 6am with Battle’s O’er, for which 1,000 p i p e r s across the world will perform the traditional Scottish l a m e n t played at the end of battle.

Sawdust hearts project will mark Armistice Day centenary

A century-old heart owned by Jackie Emmerson

Photos by Dave Barry AN ambitious artwork will commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day in Scarborough, at Woodend. Untangled Threads gallery in Belle Vue Parade has made 1,568 sawdust-filled calico hearts one to represent each day of the first world war. They are replicas of the pincushions used by the armed forces in WW1. Pincushions have been used by soldiers since the Crimean war in 1855/6. During WW1, they were made by convalescing British soldiers and sent home to wives, sweethearts and mothers. Soldiers often took up needlepoint as a way to pass the time while recuperating from war wounds, or used it as a form of occupational therapy. Some British soldiers stationed in India made quilts and sailors in the navy often extended their sail-making efforts to recreational needlework. Thousands of commercially produced kits were made and distributed to soldiers and civilians. They were already stuffed, ready to be decorated. The kits came in a cardboard box which was used to hold fabrics, beads, pins and sequins. The sawdust hearts had an immense therapeutic effect on wounded soldiers. “The practice of occupational therapy in the UK can be traced back to this time in history”, says Helen Birmingham of Untangled Threads,

who has replicated the manufacture and production of the kits as closely as possible. All 1,568 hearts have been made and stuffed by hand, with an identifying number printed on the back of each. The project has involved considerable expense, says Helen, who has been helped by her friend Dorothea Newham. Helen appealed to local people to buy a kit and decorate a heart, however they felt fit. 5% of the proceeds from sales will be donated to Combat Stress, a veterans’ mental-health charity. The project aims to highlight the benefits of occupational therapy and the power of craftwork to heal and connect people. It will culminate in an enormous artwork, covering 43 square metres, which will form the centrepiece of a commemorative event on the centenary of Armistice Day, 11 November. It will be at Woodend, where the artwork will be displayed throughout the month. Every heart created as part of the project will be on display, decorated or undecorated. They will appear in a limited edition, illustrated, commemorative catalogue. Every heart will be returned to the owner / maker by the end of 2019. Website:

Spectacular poppy-art installation in Hutton Buscel

One of the ceramic poppies A hundred hand-crafted ceramic poppies will form a spectacular art installation in the grounds of St Matthew’s Church in Hutton Buscel. A similar display last year raised £374 for the British Legion’s Scarborough branch. This year, the Hutton Buscel Artists hope to exceed that amount with a poppy for each year since WW1 ended. The display, which can be seen throughout November, will include several giant wallmounted poppies and an illuminated 100. The poppies can be sponsored for £10 to say thank you - “for our freedom, for our blessings, to a fallen loved one, to a serving family member, or for whatever it is you wish to say thank you for”, says Diane Todd of the HBAs. Messages of gratitude will be displayed on a plaque next to the sponsored poppy. Supporters will be able to keep their poppies when the display is taken down. They have a choice of purple poppies to represent the animals lost during the wars; white poppies to represent peace; and traditional red poppies, as a sign of remembrance for the loss of men and women who gave their lives

during the world wars. The project was overseen by HBA member Shirley Doyle, who said: “It might not be as big as the poppy installation at the Tower of London from 2014, but the message is just as powerful and we hope supporters really get behind it and reserve a poppy or two. To see it illuminated after dark is just stunning. We are really pleased with what we have achieved”. An art and craft exhibition will run at the village hall from 10am–4pm on 24 and 25 November, with an open preview from 7-9pm on 23 November. Admission will be free. Sixteen artists will exhibit photos, ceramics, wildlife paintings, portraiture, needlefelt artwork and sculptures, jewellery, haberdashery, illustrated poetry, mixedmedia art and festive produce. One of the HBAs, Alan M Hunt, won three awards in this year’s wildlife-artist-of-theyear competition. “So we have art royalty among us and we’re very lucky to have him”, Diane says. * To sponsor a poppy, ring Jan Jennings on 865752 or Stasia Valentine on 865420.

Appeal from borough mayor DEAR EDITOR I am honoured as the mayor of the borough of Scarborough to be in a position to appeal to your readers in asking for their support for the Royal British Legion (RBL) poppy appeal. 100 years ago, the guns fell silent on the world’s first truly global war. It is time to think about all those who lived through this tragic and remarkable time and who put Britain on the path to becoming what it is today. It’s time to say thank you for all they did for us. One of the ways we can do this is to support the poppy appeal during the official period of remembrance from 25 October until 11 November. The appeal also gives us an opportunity to support the dedication of our current serving military personnel. Every year, millions of pounds are raised

to support the armed forces community through the appeal. All money goes directly to its welfare work with serving service personnel, veterans and their families, so I am appealing to all members of our borough community to get involved and help to raise as much as possible. You can get a poppy from one of the many poppy volunteers in the town centres of Filey, Scarborough and Whitby in return for a donation to the RBL. Please give as much as you can afford and, if you have a few hours to spare, you might also want to consider becoming a poppy volunteer. Anyone over 16 years of age can help.

Knitted poppies adorn St Mary’s Photo by Dave Barry KNITTED poppies adorn the interior of St Mary’s Church in Scarborough, in preparation for Remembrance Sunday. A core group of six needle-clickers have spent five months painstakingly creating over 2,000 red woollen flowers. Joan Ward, Barbara Davis, Sandra Dickens, Mags Bryan, Dot Normandale and Sue Sewell did most of the knitting, although other people from all over the country sent in contributions. The knitted poppies have been artfully arranged on the pulpit, in one of the side chapels and across a memorial to the 162

local members of the armed forces who died in World War One - plus one for the unknown soldier. “We started in May and have been knitting ever since”, says Joan Ward. The poppies can be seen on three open days on 2 and 3 November, from 10am until 3pm, and on 4 November, from 12.30pm until 3pm. When this year’s commemorations marking the centenary of the end of the war are over, the poppies will not be thrown away. They will be stored until next year, when they will be sold, individually. Half the proceeds will be given to the British Legion and half to the Friends of St Mary’s.

For close farm sorts I knew: sound in stature and worth. Their family’s thrift, not yet carving out their name.

Scarborough Review •


Remembrance Day approaches, and it’s a special anniversary this time. We are looking back to 100 years since the First World War ended. This month’s Scarborough Tale looks at Wilfred Owen, the great war poet, and the time he spent in Scarborough during the First World War.


“So I’m posted to Scarborough! I hope I’ll have some spare time to get my poems finished!” WILFRED Edward Salter Owen stood outside the Clarence Gardens Hotel [now called the Clifton Hotel], at North Bay, Scarborough. He was weary from his train journey. Wilfred, aged 24, had suffered severe shell shock from being blown up at the battle front on a field in Northern France. He had laid for several days unconscious on the battlefield, alongside a dead comrade. His physical injuries had healed somewhat, though mentally he needed time to rest and convalesce. He was well enough to go back to his regiment, but not back to the front. So, after some time in Edinburgh Hospital, Wilfred was posted to Scarborough. He was pleased. Wilfred had visited Scarborough many times before, staying with his cousin May, who ran a boarding school for girls in what is now called Pavilion Square, near the railway station. He had also been at the Burniston Road barracks earlier in the war, and Scarborough was perhaps his favourite place. Nevertheless this mentally wounded soldier was apprehensive about what would be expected from him during this time of convalescing. And one day, he knew, he would be going back to the front. “Welcome to the Clarence Gardens. The officers live here. You’ll be responsible for overseeing all the domestic activity here, in charge of the staff, the meals, the food for the meals, the cleaning, the bed changes, selling the drinks, the woodbines and cigars,

everything. You up to it? You’ll have the turret rooms at the top of the building, with a fantastic sea view. Soldiers are in the barracks about a mile away, though you’ll be looking after the officers.” “Sir!” and a salute were enough to acknowledge his willingness to get to work. “You’ll have a bit of spare time as well. Got any hobbies?” “Yes, I write poetry. I have a lot of half-finished poems and am very keen to have some writing time. Thank you.” And so began Wilfred’s time of convalescence in Scarborough. He was free to work as he felt, with no-one giving him orders. His view across North Bay was magnificent. The fresh sea air regenerated his lungs. His health and state of mind improved. And it was a golden time for his poetry writing. The six months he was in Scarborough are recognised as the most important and creative six months of his life. His poetry blossomed. He even had time to contemplate what he might do when the war was over. His Biblical poems and letters to his mother suggested he was considering becoming a vicar. “Thank you for all you’ve done here Wilfred. You look so well. You’re being posted back to France, back to the front, but don’t worry, all the signs are saying that the war will soon be over.” “Sir!” and a salute were enough to

acknowledge his willingness to go back. I can just visualise Wilfred at Scarborough station. I imagine him gazing at the ceramic wall railway map, a map which is still there today. I imagine him stepping on that train in the summer of 1918, to start his journey taking him back to the front. Wilfred was soon into battle. His bravery won him the award of the Military Cross. Sadly, Wilfred Edgar Salter Owen M.C., aged 25, was killed in action, leading his men across the Ors Canal in France on 4th. November 1918, only a week before the war ended. What a poignant time to be killed! It was on Armistice Day that his parents received the news. Yet, Wilfred was only one of the many, many millions who died during the First World War. So many giving that ultimate sacrifice. Factor in the deaths from the Second World War, and all the other Wars since, and it’s a bleak thought! So many names on our cenotaphs. We will remember them. © joecoates2018

Wilfred Owen’s poems are still read today. Considered perhaps the greatest poet to write about the futility and horror of war, Wilfred had taken full advantage of the spare time he had in Scarborough. As some of his poems indicate, he walked the streets at North Bay, South Bay and in the town centre. We will remember him, and his time here in our town.

I had the delight during the town’s Heritage weekends in September to join a Wilfred Owen walk led by John Oxley and Paul Elson. I picked up their enthusiasm, and inspiration, to include a Scarborough Tale celebrating the time of such a hugely recognised poet in our town.

Successful ex-pupils give pep talks at their old school Words and photo by Dave Barry “Nothing in life can stop you doing whatever you want to do”. This was the inspiring message delivered by TV director Jordan Hogg when he returned to Gladstone Road School in Scarborough. Jordan set a powerful example of triumph

over adversity to about 230 fascinated and impressionable pupils aged 8-9. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a child, he faced the extra challenge life had thrown at him head on. After leaving school, 24 years ago, he studied at Graham School, Yorkshire Coast College,

Hull University and National Film School. At uni, he entered a competition run by Channel 4. He didn’t win but got his foot in the door of the TV world. He worked on a programme called The Dumping Ground, which drew a ripple of approval from his young audience.

He helped create So Awkward and has worked on Casualty, Doctors, The Evermoor Chronicles, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks. Jordan has been nominated for various awards and won a Bafta for best tv drama, for an episode of Casualty which he directed. He is now transitioning from TV to movies and says his next goal is to win an Oscar. Lesley Dodd, who organises the visits by former pupils, said: “The children have really enjoyed having the various visitors. We hope to enthuse them and get them thinking about their learning journeys and goals”. Other ex-pupils who have given talks to current pupils about their careers have included York Hospital chemotherapy nurse Hazel Hall, army warrant officer Louise Thornton, international football referee George Roberts, chocolatier Amelia Forrest and actor and playwright Christopher York. The next one, on 12 November, is Dr Stephen Moss, a systems engineer for a large cloud software company. Since leaving Gladstone Road School, he has worked in various research positions at universities across the UK, primarily supporting biologists and medics via the field of bioinformatics. * The school would love to hear from ex-pupils who would be willing to return to their alma mater, to talk to children.

Christmas is coming! With just under eight weeks until the big day, we thought it was time we kicked into Christmas mode. Whether you’re looking for a way to count down until Christmas or buy a gift for someone special, here’s our top picks.

If you’re waiting for 23RD OCT - 21ST NOV lucky breaks, you’ll wait in vain, for this is a period in which you must create your own luck and go with the flow of the consequences. The trouble is, of course, that there are a number of barriers between where you are and where you want to be. I suspect that if you try to break down the barriers you’ll waste a lot of time, so the secret is to find some way around the barriers, and get to where you want to be through the back door. One of the key stumbling blocks is your lack of money, so perhaps the first thing to do is concentrate on building up your


22ND NOV - 21ST DEC Probably an awkward start to the month caused by a patch of low energy, or plans having to be changed at the 11th hour. A more upbeat mood kicks in around the 7th or 8th, and you can look forward to some good money news between the 12th and the 20th. News from overseas should be relevant for some, while for others, order your wedding hats and suits.


22ND DECEMBER - 20TH JANUARY This should be a very busy month on the work scene, and care must be taken (a) to not overtire yourself and (b) to avoid stress. Finances are okay, but you need to keep a tighter grip on the cheque book and plastic, avoiding unnecessary expense. An awareness of potential health problems helps you avoid them – so do be aware!


20TH JANUARY - 18TH FEBRUARY While there could be news of pregnancies and births, perhaps a less parochial view of this chart might suggest the birth of some new and brighter visions of your mid and long term future. Plans made now might take two years to come to fruition, but will be well worth it in the end. Therefore, plan for and play the long game!


19TH FEBRUARY - 20TH MARCH Time to walk away from things that no longer work – fridges, TVs, cars, friendships, or relationships. Hard to do, sometimes, but equally very necessary. The new cannot be found while the old is cluttering up the heart and mind, so time for fresh starts, new beginnings, new pathways and some very exciting new adventures.


21ST MARCH - 19TH APRIL Single members of the sign will probably have more fun this month as they rush hotfoot after new romantic liaisons and conquests. Out of this hedonism, however, there may be some very nice surprises when something light hearted and casual becomes something quite intense and permanent. Engagement rings? Who said anything about engagement rings?


20TH APRIL - 20TH MAY Older members of the sign should have some success in finding (a) a new sense of identity, and (b) a new sense of purpose. These things are vitally important because they re-ignite the Taurean life spark

finances. And by this, I don’t mean spending a few quid on lottery tickets! The work opportunities are there, although I grant you, they might not be glaringly obvious. Nevertheless, around the 20th, 21st and 22th, some does fall into place in connection with cash and careers, and if something is offered (even if it’s something you don’t want) may I respectfully suggest you grab it with both hands. Not as a be-all-and-end-all, but as a stepping stone that leads to other, better things. Overseas interests may be relevant for some of you, but a different interpretation of this chart might be to suggest you have to look farther afield to find whatever it is you’re searching for.

and make life a lot more fun. Emotional relationships and financial stability are on an even keel, and should be improving very slightly by month’s end.


21ST MAY - 20TH JUNE Female members of the sign seem to carry the weight of family responsibility at this time and, like it or not, assume the leadership role. While this enables them to have more of their own way, it also means that they can bring some order to various states of chaos. This is something that will be noticed and appreciated by others.

21ST JUNE - 22ND JULY This should be a brilliant month for anyone involved with property – its purchase, its sale, or its improvement! It’s also a positive period for improving domestic atmospheres and resolving problems with awkward children. Legal aspects add some flavour to the month, but to your advantage. Reunions and news of pregnancies should also be relevant.


22ND JULY - 21ST AUGUST It’s easy to make decisions when you know what to do – less easy when you don’t! Therefore, there may be a couple of blind choices in front of you during the days ahead, and as always, I would say trust your gut instincts. Change on one level or another seems inevitable, so try to embrace it, rather than resisting it. It’s the easier and more natural passage.


23RD AUGUST - 22ND SEPTEMBER Like your Zodiac neighbour, you may find you have to face some awkward decisions. Do you stick with the devil you know or take a chance with the devil you don’t? Trust your past experience here, and play safe rather than stepping into the unknown. There may be some major changes ahead, but not yet, not now, and not until you’re ready.


23RD SEPTEMBER- 22ND OCTOBER Younger members of the sign may feel they’re being pushed into action before they’re ready, and yet the tide cannot be turned. This is a time for young people to find their independence and stand on their own two feet. Travel and geographic relocation looks likely for some, while major change in domestic routines is inevitable for others.

sounds like you could be pre-empting these things rather than them being an actual issue. However, you have every right not to be comfortable with your son shouting profanities at a screen, and it’s reasonable for you to expect that he should be able to have time away from gaming without his peers pressuring him to get back on his console. Perhaps ask him if he’s going to take a little bit of time out each week to spend time with the family. Work on talking to him about his games, hopefully you’ll see that his social skills are there and you might learn a bit about what’s so good about these flipping games. If you find out, please let me know, too!

Dear Daphne, I’m concerned that my 16 year old son spends far more time online than socialising in person. His online friends who he games with seem to pester him constantly when he spends time away from his console, even when he’s trying to eat his tea. While I have no problem with him gaming, I’m worried that this much will affect his social skills later on in life. He is shy with new people in real life and seems to be a bit of a recluse. In comparison I hear him shouting every word under the sun when he’s sat on his game box or whatever you call it. I bet hundred of parents all over the world have this concern in today’s climate. I’ve seen first hand the effects of excessive gaming, and while they’re not debilitating, they are certainly noticeable. What’s more, ‘Gaming Disorder’ has been defined by the World Health Organisation as a genuine disease this year - so it’s certainly something to be aware of. Before you start worrying, ask yourself if it’s affecting any of these key things right now: school work, physical education or social interaction. It

Statistics show that one in four people will experience a mental health issue at some point in any one year. Being outdoors in the garden can be beneficial in many ways to those people, as a form of natural therapy.


Gardening can help a person's emotional and physical wellbeing in many ways, such as alleviating stress, providing a form of exercise, lifting moods and creating a sense of purpose and achievement. Not to mention the potential new skills and knowledge that can be acquired along the way. For some people, the idea of even walking out of the front door can be a challenge. Or the thought of tackling a large scale project can lead to bouts of stress and anxiety. However, there are many ways in which forms of gardening can be done to suit the individual and achieve personal goals.


If the prospect of tackling your whole garden is daunting, consider starting one small section at a time - maybe weeding or cultivating what's already there, or creating a new project. One idea could be to create a herb garden or vegetable plot. Being self-sufficient can be very rewarding, and can create a great sense of achievement through the process of sowing the seed, nurturing the plants and seeing the end result of something you have personally done. There are a huge variety of herb and vegetable seeds and plants to choose from, and if you have a small garden - or no garden at all - why not try sowing seeds in pots or window boxes? You'll get the same great benefits!


Sensory gardens are also another great idea. There are many plants that can be used that stimulate the senses of smell, touch, taste, sound and sight. Try using both flower and vegetable plants that are brightly coloured, highly scented, have textured foliage or flowers and those that can be used for culinary purposes. There are also many plants that can attract wildlife to your garden, which not only creates a visual aspect for you, but also helps the environment. Why not try joining a local gardening group? Not only can you gain more knowledge and skills, but it's also a great way to get involved with the community, and make new friends. Check out the events section on pages 60-66 and see what's going on near you!

Journaling JOURNALING involves the practice of writing in a diary, notebook, a specific journal or digitally on the computer. Thoughts and feelings are explored as one journals and this can be extremely therapeutic. There are several different ways to Journal as a stress management and self exploration tool. It is most beneficial to journal consistently, whether daily, weekly or even using a further time scale. Sporadic journaling is also beneficial especially when focusing on gratitude or an emotional process. It is a good idea to set aside time to reflect on yourself and your life and write about it as a journal exercise. A journal can be used in so many ways depending on what you personally want to achieve, helping you keep on track with things you want to remember, deal with tough situations that have happened or about to arise, think toward the future, create new ideas and more. Journaling is personal to each individual, some will choose to write pages and pages on a very regular basis. I am a minimalist in lots of ways and often a couple of words or one paragraph is sufficient to me to feel I have completed the process and had some benefit from logging my thinking. You may find you fluctuate between different ways until you find what works for you. Here are some ways to help you begin your journaling. We are all different and the ideas wont suit everyone.

START THE DAY JOURNALING Have your notebook and pen by the bedside and as soon as the alarm goes off, write for a few minutes of whatever thoughts you wake with. Feeling rested you are likely to be feeling creative and this can put you in a good mindset for the rest of the day. If you already meditate before starting the day, writing after your meditation is a good method.

KEEP IT SIMPLE You are no longer at school and having to adhere to strict regulations. No need for long sentences, punctuated paragraphs and certain lengths of writing. Jot feelings down as you please, bullet proof creative ideas and place words exactly as you please.

USE AN APP Whilst most people think of journalling as writing in a notebook you may wish to use an app for speed and convenience. Some apps prompt you to keep you motivated and have options to put pictures and videos on too.



By using your own template you can follow a regular format that suits you best. Give them a go and decide for yourself, what works for you. Email: Website:

Feeling the pinch By Claire Brooks Sadly, most of us will know how it feels to struggle financially. Usually around January when Christmas has rinsed us of our pennies and that post-festive pay day feels like years away. However, for some people, managing money can be a real problem. Especially since recent research from Neyber has found that as much as 34% of Brits have just one month or less of their salary in savings. Having financial difficulties can come at a real cost: it can affect your mental health. It’s a vicious circle – mental health problems can affect your ability to work, but then that can, in turn, affect your income. Being made redundant or being in debt can be extremely stressful. It’s important to know that if you are finding it hard to manage your finances, the way you may feel isn’t unusual. Feelings of anxiety and stress are normal responses to the situation, and there’s plenty of ways to get help.

TOP TIPS ON HOW TO SAVE MONEY Sometimes, things happen that are out of our control. That’s why it’s so useful to have savings. Here are some ways you can build your savings: • Open a savings account. If you put some money

into your savings account on every pay day, you won’t be tempted to dip into it, or lose track of what you can spend. It doesn’t have to be a lot – even just a pound a day turns into £365 at the end of the year! • Be honest. It’s nice to go out for dinners with friends and family, and to join in with activities. But if you’re trying to cut back on your spending and save money, you need to explain to them that certain things won’t suit your budget. They’ll understand – and you can still see them. Just suggest a lowerbudget activity! • Give yourself a goal. Simply telling yourself to save more money won’t be a strong enough motivator to help you change your habits. It’s like losing weight: if you set yourself a target, you’ll know what you’re aiming for. Think about why you need to put money away and what you’re saving for. • Be realistic. Don’t get carried away in a fantasy. If you can’t achieve it then you won’t – and that’ll only make you feel awful!

BY Krystal Starkey OWNING a hotel and restaurant has been a lifelong dream for Robert and Sarah Stoff, who took over East Ayton Lodge at the end of July this year. Since then, they’ve been busy making positive changes to the venue and are keen for visitors to ‘come and see’ for themselves. Owner Rober Stoff, who is also a financial advisor, said: “We’ve wanted to do it for years and we just fell in love with the estate. Its absolutely beautiful. You get up here, and you’ve a strong feeling you’re in the countryside.” The couple’s priority has been making the lounge and bar more user friendly for people wanting to pop up on a evening. Whether it’s just for a quick pint, a casual bar meal or to eat in the restaurant off the a la carte menu, nothing is off limits: “I’ve done quite a bit of work to it as it is, tried to make it more user friendly for people. You can come up on an evening and have a drink and something to eat, and once people get to know that, we might start putting entertainment on.” There have been visual and functional changes.

Swedes, turnips and things Local artist Dav White talks about the fascinating world of history, art and mythology

The Langbaurgh wapentake in Cleveland FOR almost a century before 866, the Vikings were raiding the coasts of Britain. An old chronicle tells us that there were “exceptional flashes of light and fiery dragons seen flying in the air”. The Viking horde, known as the Great Heathen Army, landed and wintered in East Anglia before moving north across the Humber to take York in 866. The crossing of the Humber and the taking of York is widely accepted as being the start of the Viking age in Britain. The heroic Viking brothers - Ivar the Boneless, who was reputed to be untrappable, like an octopus, Halfdan Ragnarsson, Björn Ironside, Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye and Ubba - wanted revenge against the king of York for the death, by snake pit, of their father Ragnar Lodbrok, aka Ragnar Shaggy Britches. The Vikings took York on All Saints Day, 1 November 866. Alcuin of York, an English scholar and clergyman, documents an omen, a rain of blood dripping from the roof of St Peter’s in York. There had already been famine in the north and it was widely believed among Christians that the biblical apocalypse would occur towards the end of the first millennium. Alcuin quotes Jeremiah 1:4 - “Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land”. The Vikings divided Yorkshire into thri-things (three things) the North, East and West ridings. Each represented a third of the thing, a shire court which met at York. Thing became a hus-thing (hustings) for when meetings started occurring indoors, in a house (hus), rather than a meeting outdoors for the other administrative gathering of the wapentake (Weapon-grasp) for people to meet to grasp the weapon of the king’s representative, to show loyalty. Meetings held inside were made important by decoration and adornment of the interior. For meetings held outside, the right choice of location and a sense of place was essential. The wapentake courts met at the long-established sacred places of the ancient Britons, such as sacred hills, wells, trees, and bridges. These places gave their name to the wapentakes, names such as the Skyrack, Ewcross and Hallikeld, an ancient tree, a cross and a well. An old field maple tree outside of Thirsk was used for councils. Smaller courts or things have left their names in the landscape such as Thingwall outside of Whitby, Thing Howe (now Fingay Hill), Tinghowedale near Guisborough and Tindall Holme near Scarborough. Langbaurgh wapentake in Cleveland is named after Langbargh Ridge, the long hill on the flats outside of Great Ayton. It is at the centre of the wapentake and has since been divided along the axis of the hill into the smaller, more manageable parishes of East and West Langbaurgh. Langbaurgh Ridge was created by the Cleveland Dyke, a volcanic intrusion of crystallised magma that runs through Cleveland and the North York Moors from the Isle of Mull. It terminates at Blea Hill Rigg

on Fylingdales Moor. At Langbaurgh Ridge, the blue basalt rock and its long hill features sticking out of a flat landscape would have held special meaning to those using it as a place to hold an outside court. The ancient Scarborough market stone was a piece of blue stone perhaps quarried at the Cleveland Dyke. The Market Stone, or Great Blue Stone, was a meeting place for speeches, deals and declarations. Around the same time as the Langbargh wapentake was being established by the Vikings in Clyveland (Cleveland), they were establishing a similar type of location in Iceland. On Iceland’s main geological fault line, where the two tectonic plates called the Mid-Atlantic Ridge meet, creating a volcanic fissure, a great meeting place was established, called the Althing. A rock along the fissure wall, which the fault had split in two, became a law speaker’s rostrum for a candidate to recite Icelandic law to a selective gathering. The Althing is now the name of the national parliament of Iceland; it is the oldest parliament in the world. Viking Yorkshire was a diverse and eclectic place. In the fields, markets towns and in the city of York you would hear the traditional language of Old English, as well as Old Norse and Latin. They would vary with the different dialects of West Saxon or Old Icelandic, Old West Norse and Old Danish. The Vikings enjoyed meat, fish, fowl, vegetables, wild greens, bread and fruit. They introduced imported spices, drinking ale and mead, a strong, fermented drink made from honey. The yellow turnip, or rutabagga, depending on your regional persuasion, is often called a swede because it was introduced into this country from Sweden. It was also called a Swedish turnip. Unlike swedes, white turnips can be traced back in early history and perhaps imported to Britain in the time of the Romans. The swede or yellow turnip is a much later edition. Perhaps this is why a swede is called a turnip by those whose family roots are from the wapentakes and things established by the Vikings and why the yellow turnip is called a swede by others who are not? Thus, the swede is a turnip in Walsgrif and Nordfeld (Falsgrave and Northstead), land previously held by Tosig Goodwinson prior to the battles of Stamford Bridge and Hastings, which marked the official end of the Viking era in Britain. If Scarborough was not a Scandinavia settlement prior to 966, for those living east of the Sainsbury’s traffic lights, the correct term for a yellow turnip is a swede. Today we enjoy free movement between the ancient boundaries in this country and live in tolerant communities where we can openly say swede and our neighbours can say turnip without fear of reprisals.

As gardeners we are always working about six months ahead of ourselves so we are planting bulbs now that will give us colour in spring, pruning fruit trees for next summers harvest and digging plots ready to grow next seasons crops. The lovely summer has given way to some glorious autumn colour and in the Muck and Magic garden we are looking at ways to extend this autumn colour throughout the garden. There are lots of small trees and shrubs that can be planted now that will give fabulous colour this time next year. Top of the list would have to be the Katsura tree which is small enough to fit into most gardens has golden yellow colour and the added bonus of autumn leaves that give off an aroma of burnt sugar or caramel. Nandina domestica, or the Heavenly Bamboo, is a small shrub fit for any garden which will turn lovely shades of red at this time of the year. Japanese Maples are always sure fire winners when it comes to autumn colour but try to find a sheltered spot if you thinking of planting one of these trees as they really don’t like windy conditions. Winter flowering shrubs are a favourite of this Muck and Magic gardener. After all, who says the garden has to go to bed for the winter? I can’t wait to get that first scent of flowering witch hazel on a sunny winter day or shrubby honeysuckle which has a curious way of packing a real punch into the tiniest of flowers. Viburnums, too, are real good value for money when it comes to winter

flower and scent. So start planning and planting now for a spectacular display this time next year. It’s not too late to be planting daffodil bulbs, if you are a bit behind with your gardening tasks and November is the perfect time to plant tulips. Try to keep the lawns clear of fallen leaves to stop the grass turning yellow but don’t worry about leaves on borders. They will be absolutely fine and the worms will take them down into the soil for you. Natures perfect soil conditioner! Greenhouses can be cleaned out and tidied up and any shading c an be washed off the glass allowing maximum light levels throughout the next few months. So, plenty of gardening tasks to keep every one busy and should the weather turn cold don’t forget that this is the perfect opportunity to get the kettle on and the seed catalogues out ready to start planning for next seasons displays. Muck and Magic Garden Club will be meeting on Monday November 12th at Ebenezer Church Hall on Columbus Ravine beginning at 7pm. Our speaker this month will be Robin Arundale from the Wolds Barn Owl Conservation Trust and it promises to be a very special evening. Everyone is welcome and more details are available from muckandmagic@ Happy Gardening!

Scarborough Strata BY ROGER OSBORNE

It’s strange how some things stick in your memory while others just drift in and out. It must be something to do with the way you shape your mind and personality, half consciously selecting those things you think are important. In my formative years (I was around fourteen or fifteen) I picked up a magazine in a waiting room and was drawn to an article on the consolations of winter. I remember being struck by how the writer had started with a feeling of depression about the cold and dark but had persuaded herself to think of the good things that were to come. I thought about this the other night when I walked up the garden with my dog. As the streetlights faded in the distance, and as my eyes adjusted, the dark sky began to appear. For the first time this autumn the constellations were brilliantly clear and right across the sky was a band of what looked like pale cloud or mist. I hurried back to the house and grabbed my binoculars.

Sure enough the pale band was the Milky Way and through binoculars the millions of stars showed as individual points of light. It was simply breathtaking. Our ancestors have looked at the night sky with the same sense of wonder. The Persians were among the earliest astronomers; they depicted the Milky Way as a river of light and the constellations as animals who came each night to take water. The Polynesians told stories of the stars that were navigation aids in the vastness of their Pacific homeland, while American natives wove stories around the positions of the stars to tell them when to plant and harvest. So the night sky is not just one of the consolations of winter, it is both food for our souls and a connection to every human civilisation that has ever existed. That’s got to be worth a walk up the garden.

NOW our clocks are back in step with the sun, twilight comes early. It’s at its most dramatic at this time of year, when the intense colours are not to be missed. But dusk is fleeting. Delay, and it’s gone. Most birds retire to their roosts with little fanfare — there’s no reason to sing at this time of year. One exception is the robin, whose winter song we hear as the last rays fade from the sky. Unlike the sun, the robin is not heading for bed. He, or she, will continue to search for insects in quite dim light. And when a robin sees a streetlight this can trigger a burst of wistful notes, even in the middle of the night. While our birds sleep, Scandinavian visitors choose to fly. Flocks of redwings, fieldfares, and blackbirds cross the North Sea in darkness. Fieldfares, the most recent arrivals, are striking thrushes with a boldly spotted breast, chestnut back, grey head, and black wings. At present they are feeding in fields and berried hedges, but a wintry spell in January could bring them into our gardens. Those fluttering snowflakes descending on the beach are a flock of snow buntings; these tough little birds from the far north search for seeds washed in on the tide. White in summer, when they breed in the high arctic, their winter plumage has sandy patches. If you spot some swans grazing in a field, they’re likely be whooper swans from Iceland. Whoopers have yellow beaks marked with black, rather than the orange beak of our resident mute swans. In flight they make loud trumpeting calls, hence the name. Although most are in Sctotland small groups of whoopers can turn up anywhere, so check your local pond or lake for straight-necked swans with yellow beaks. In some years waxwings arrive in huge numbers, fleeing the deep freeze of Norway’s forests. Big flocks appear in high streets and supermarket car parks, attracted by the berries of ornamental shrubs and trees. Already we’ve had some snow flurries on the moors — will this be a “waxwing winter”? Folklore is eager to help. You may be thinking, why bother with quaint old sayings. Well, distilled over generations, the weather patterns observed by seafarers and workers on the land are still relevant today. “When ice in November will bear a duck, the rest of the winter is slush and muck.” In other words, a frost hard enough to freeze a pond indicates a mild winter. “If leaves fall not by Martinmas Day (November 11), a cruel winter is on the way.” Note the wind direction then,

because it gives the prevailing wind for the next three months. Compare this with St Clement’s Day on the 23rd, said to show the general trend for winter, while St Catherine on November 25 offers a clue to February. Martinmas used to be known as a day when rents were settled, land payments made and hiring fairs were held. Farm workers in tied cottages called it Pack-rag Day, because the end of their hiring agreements meant they had to move on. Any cattle, sheep, and pigs that couldn’t be kept through winter were killed in autumn, and any meat that couldn’t be preserved was eaten at a Martinmas feast. Food, drink and jollity were customary in every country parish — until the cataclysm of the Great War. The Armistice was signed 100 years ago on St Martin’s Day, 1918, and in the years following the day became devoted to reflections on sacrifice. It was the first war in which most of the fighters were conscripts, rather than professional soldiers, so almost every family in the country had been touched by death or injury. After that, nobody had the heart for the old customs. November 25 is Stir-up Sunday, Christmas pudding time. The festive pud goes way back to plum pottage, originally a medieval dish of mutton or beef simmered in wine with dried fruit, spices, and breadcrumbs. It had fallen out of fashion by 1700, when someone had a bright idea. Why not lose some of the meat and wine from the old pottage recipe, then tie it all up in a cloth and boil it? The new pudding became a hit. In 1843, Charles Dickens ensured its immortality when Mrs Cratchit served up her “cannonball” in his novel, A Christmas Carol. Hers was a traditional plum pudding — dark, glossy, and topped off with a sprig of holly. To add drama she splashed it with brandy and set it on fire. Today supermarkets offer endless variations. But why not have a go yourself? There are plenty of recipes online. Don’t forget to make a wish — keep it secret, or it won’t come true — while stirring the mixture three times, clockwise. Invite others to do the same. It’s a crafty way of getting them to share the work. The following Sunday is the first in Advent, the season that leads up to Christmas. Already wilting under the pressure? Award yourself a day off. No crowded stores, no online shopping — November 23 is Buy Nothing Day.


Choir desperately seeks new accompanist A choir is starting to panic over an unfilled vacancy at its heart. Hackness Ladies Choir urgently needs someone to fill the distinguished shoes of accompanist Frank James, who is retiring at the end of the year. Frank will accompany the choir at its next concert, at Irton Garden Centre on 28 November. But he will be hanging up his dinner-jacket and giving his hands and eyes a well-deserved rest by the time the new year dawns, bringing with it his 75th birthday. He’s a hard act to follow but the choir is sure there will be somebody out there who can do it. Choir rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings at the village hall. A good Clavinova is provided. The community choir has been fortunate to acquire an experienced conductor and musical director, Ralph Earwicker. Over the last few years, the standard has risen dramatically under his baton. The ensemble is often invited to give concerts and recently

had considerable success in Whitby’s Eskdale festival. All fees paid to the choir are given to local charities chosen by choir members. The new accompanist will be a proficient pianist, able to cope with a variety of styles. Good sight-reading skills would be an advantage but aren’t essential, as notice is always given of material to be rehearsed. No remuneration is given - but could be discussed. The position might suit a semi-retired music teacher, happy to play for pleasure, or an advanced piano student wishing to gain experience. To apply or enquire, ring Karen Torkington, who chairs the choir, on 07791 727595 or email * Irton Garden Centre’s annual fundraising concert will raise funds for Cancer Research UK. It is due to start at 7.30pm. Refreshments will be served after the performance. Tickets cost £4.

bring joy to the heart and peace to the soul”. The next one will be on 22 November, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. After that they will be every fortnight. For more information, ring 07530 352674. It costs £5 per person. Newcomers and visitors are welcome.





Scarborough Review •

Curtain falls on old am-dram group Words and photo by Dave Barry THE show no longer goes on for an old amateur-drama group which has trodden the boards for the last time in Scarborough. With an ever-diminishing band of actors and supporters, Phoenix Drama Club, formed in 1947, has decided to call it a day. Every cloud has a silver lining. The club has donated its bank balance of £2,561.60 to the YMCA Theatre, where it performed latterly. And its large collection of costumes and props has been handed over to Tim Tubbs of the UK Foundation for Dance, based in the same West Street building used by Phoenix for rehearsals. It’s easy to see how the club got its name. It rose from the ashes of various acting groups, some of which were based at churches. The company’s first productions, one-act plays at drama festivals, eventually led to fulllength plays. During the 1950s and 1960s, two or three plays a year were performed at the Floral Hall - usually at Easter - and the Library Theatre in Vernon Road. Plays were later performed at the former Stephen Joseph Theatre in Westwood and, for many years, the YMCA in St Thomas Street. In 2017, members, patrons and supporters, past and present, celebrated the club’s 70th anniversary. The party proved poignant. For a couple of years, the club’s committee had found it increasingly difficult to recruit new and younger members. Finding suitable plays was becoming increasingly difficult, as was finding

people to serve on the committee. The club was dissolved in January. A few members were with the club for a long time and have fond memories of putting on performances at the Library Theatre, in the round. When Margaret Braidford joined in 1964, the production directors included George Jackson, who worked at Barclays Bank and arranged for the company to rehearse there. “We then moved to the [long-gone] Cambridge Hotel and then we used a room above a snooker club in Ramshill”, Margaret recalls. Phoenix members recently gathered at the YMCA to hand over a cheque and see a plaque which has been put on a pillar to remember Phoenix. The cheque was accepted by Graham Ibbotson and Steve Marsh of the YMCA, who are pictured with Phoenix members. A spokesperson said: “Phoenix Drama would like to say a very big thank you to all our past patrons who supported us so consistently over the years and to all the people who supported us in many ways, not least by coming to see our shows. “All the club’s members have thoroughly enjoyed their involvement with Phoenix. There has been some wonderful camaraderie and many fond memories of thrills and spills on the stage entertaining the people of Scarborough”. The commemorative plaque

Pictured with the plaque and cheque are, L-R, Jan Brittain, Chris Gray, Ann Naylor, Mary Gray, Graham Ibbotson, Steve Marsh, Robin Newman, Freda Cammish, Dilys Cluer, Margaret Braidford, Chris Phillips, Sue Rowe and Pauline Newman (to order photos ring 353597)

Lantern parade will end up at Christmas fair A colourful lantern parade will light up Peasholm Park before culminating at the Scarborough Sparkle Christmas fair in the open-air theatre. Entitled Moonlight and Song, the one-hour event will be on 30 November, starting at 5.30pm. It is being organised by Scarborough-based Animated Objects theatre company. Creative director Dawn Dyson-Threadgold says it will focus on celebrating the town and its residents. Community groups and schools will carry bright seasonal lanterns. Artistic director Lee Threadgold adds: “We have been delighted with the support from the local community in previous years as hundreds of people braved the weather to join us for the evening. “This year we are parading around the park and continuing over to the open-air theatre to

join up with the Scarborough Sparkle event, where community choirs will be singing”. The fair will feature an ice rink, illuminated rides, a moonlight parade, yuletide choirs and the Yorkshire Coast Radio roadshow. About 40 stalls will sell Christmas gifts, artisan products and festive food and drink. The fair will be on for three days, from 30 November to 2 December. Animated objects are running free lantern making workshops on 24 November. The first will be at the town library from 10am until noon; the second will be in the park shelter from 1-3pm. Participants should take a clean empty two-litre pop bottle. The workshops have been supported by the Mayoress’s Community Fund and Asquith & Co accountants. n For further information, email

Ben Robinson is a writer from Scarborough who has had success with his debut poetry collection Serpents, released in 2018. He has also had success in scriptwriting and written a play called Three People. For enquiries please contact My empire fell in days, My world became ablaze, You hurt my heart but it’s just a phase, Backstabbers pretending I’m one of them, Everybody thinks I’m a psycho, But at least I don’t put on a fake show,

My smile became a frown, And my sanity began to drown, You broke and snapped my crown, My eyes would pour streams of tears, And you would smirk, But at least I’m not a jerk,

I don’t want fake friends, Who can’t make amends, They won’t make amends with me, Make it out how you want to see it, I don’t want to be at my wits end, When I could be with my real friends, So why can’t you just see, That you make it out how you want to see it,

I want to run to the tennis club, Taunt the people at the pub, I want to run down the paths, And sit and moan about maths, But all you do is hurt my heart, Can’t we just go back to the start.

Audience enthralled by talk on ‘gruesome subject’ Words and photo by Dave Barry A renowned Egyptologist “made a gruesome subject very entertaining and kept the audience enthralled”. Professor Joann Fletcher was delivering the annual Pat Almond memorial lecture at Ayton village hall, says co-organiser Pauline Bedford. The speaker, who is often on the TV and radio, illustrated her talk with slides of pyramids, archeological digs, mummies and tombs, Pauline added. Pyramids and explorers figured prominently in a painting competition for two age groups. The winners were Toby Bates and Emma Peckitt (ages 5-7) and Kate Swiers and Isabel McCann (8-10), who were presented with certificates and prizes.

“The other entries were displayed in the hall and looked splendid”, Pauline said. Pauline and her colleagues were disappointed that nobody entered their competition for ages 11-16 to write a story of between 500 and 750 words. This was despite flyers being sent to all the senior schools in the area and the incentive of a £30 prize and a trophy. Pauline said she was grateful to the parish council for supporting the event and to the volunteers who helped make it happen. “We know Pat’s family are very appreciative”, she said. * Professor Fletcher talked about Egypt’s connections with Yorkshire, which she said can be traced back to Roman times, at St Mark’s Church in Newby.

Chris Difford to play Hackness Society to show oil-painted film SQUEEZE co-founder Chris Difford will play at Hackness Grange Hotel on 16 November. As a member of one of the UK’s best-loved bands, Difford has made a lasting contribution to the nation’s music with hits such as Cool For Cats, Up the Junction, Labelled With Love, Hourglass and Tempted. Difford and Glenn Tilbrook recently wrote two new Squeeze albums. The first, based on the life of Danny Baker, was the soundtrack for a BBC2 production called Cradle to Grave, starring Peter Kay. All original music, it became the first Squeeze record in 15 years. The most recent Squeeze album, The Knowledge, was released to rave reviews in 2017. Chris to the Mill, a box set of his three studio albums, came out last year, followed by the album Fancy Pants, written with Boo Hewerdine. Difford published his autobiography, Some Fantastic Place, which he toured around

bookshops and small theatres. He has invited local singer-songwriter Phil Hooley to open the Hackness show. The two met earlier in the year at one of Difford’s songwriter workshops. Phil will be accompanied by the multi-talented Dave Kemp. The music starts at 8pm. Tickets for both shows cost £12 and can be booked by ringing 882421 or emailing

The first entirely oil-painted animation feature film in history is Scarborough Film Society’s next offering. Loving Vincent weaves together a group of disparate characters who all posed for van Gogh in a story that explores the nature of his death, 12 months earlier. A Guardian review commented: “The animation is a mercurial wonder; a snaking, vibrant vision in the golds, ochres and cornflower blues that sing of the artist’s most famous work”. Directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchmant, it can be seen at St Mary's Parish House in Castle Road (5 Nov, 12, 94 mins, 2017). The society’s next film, A Fantastic Woman, tells the story of a transgender waitress and singer in love with an older man.

Garland dancers celebrate their 40th anniversary SCARBOROUGH’S White Rose Garland Dancers celebrated their 40th anniversary with a day of dance in the town centre. They were joined by Roll Back the Carpet, an Appalachian clog team from Saltaire; and the Yorkshire Chandeliers, a garland dance team from Sheffield who inspired Cyril and Sheila Swales to launch the Scarborough team in 1978. The team is planning a celebratory meal or afternoon tea for members past and present. Former members who would like to attend should ring organiser Maureen Croft on 863495. The group meets in Seamer Memorial Hall every Monday from 8.15pm to 9.30pm. New members, including musicians, are welcome. All the dancers, outside the town hall

After his sudden death, she is forced to confront his family and society, and to fight to show them who and what she really is.

Polish revolution discussed at stamp club

The White Rose Garland Dancers in the pedestrian precinct

THE Polish revolution of the early 1980s was Malcolm Stockhill’s subject at Scarborough Philatelic Society's October meeting. He displayed letters from internment camps and a large variety of stamps sold surreptitiously from kiosks as receipts for funds donated to resistance movements. They portrayed national heroes, critical events in Polish history and symbols of freedom and national identity. The society’s press officer, Robin Stenhouse, said: “Malcolm's fascinating display was a model of how a thematic collection should be

presented, with a variety of material, clean, uncluttered, colourful and very interesting. “He reminded us that we may not appreciate the significance and importance of events as they occur. Looking back, the visit of the Pope to Poland was a landmark in the collapse of communist regimes”. The society meets at 7pm on the first Tuesday of the month in the library. Visitors interested in stamps and postal history are welcome. On 6 November, entries for the society's competitions will be shown.

Bringing the Jurassic coastline to life A WRITER and geologist will bring the Jurassic coastline to life when he kicks off a series of talks at Derwent Valley Bridge Library in West Ayton on 8 November, at 7pm. Roger Osborne will show how the landscape, rocks and fossils are intricately linked. He will take his audience on a journey across 200m years of the earth’s history, from the cliffs of Saltburn to Filey Bay. Roger has written a dozen books on a wide range of subjects, from world history to the landscape of the North York moors. He runs High Tide, a small publishing company specialising in guides to the coast and moors of North Yorkshire. Tickets cost £4 including refreshments and should be booked by ringing 863052. The talks programme continues with David Hutchinson, whose subject will be biochar and how he believes it can save the planet (10 Jan); Chris Hansell, who will talk about the

flora, fauna and history of Fylingdales moor (14 Feb); John Harper, whose talk will be called Journey into Space (14 Mar); andPaul Robinson, who will take about spring gardening (11 Apr).

Revved-up folk songs and shanties in Filey THE Salts will play revved-up sea-related folk songs and shanties to celebrate Filey’s long seafaring and fishing heritage, at the Evron Centre on 1 December. The folk-rock fivepiece might fit a Bellowhead-shaped hole, doing for shanties what the Pogues did for folk. A co-operative of seasoned musicians, the band mix well-written original compositions with traditional tunes. Their best-known member, on banjo and guitar, is Lee Collinson, twice finalist in the BBC folk musician of the year awards.

The gig will draw Filey’s mini-Christmas festival to a close. Tickets cost £10 from Filey Travel and the Red Box.

Author’s talk on the vinyl revival SCARBOROUGH businesses Record Revivals and Mojo’s Music Café have joined forces to host an evening with acclaimed author Graham Jones. It will be at Mojo’s on 10 November, starting at 6.30pm. Graham has spent 32 years travelling the UK, selling to independent record shops. His claim to fame is that he has visited more record shops than any other human. In 2009, he wrote Last Shop Standing (later made into a film), observing the tragic decline of record shops. His new book, The Vinyl Revival and the Shops That Made it Happen, charts the unexpected resurgence of new vinyl and the shops selling it. It tells the story of the vinyl revival through the eyes of those who made it happen, the independent record shops. It explains why over 100 record shops have opened since 2009 and how others have gained the reward from their hard work. Budget turntable manufacturers, supermarkets, chain stores, clothes shops, pressing plants and even the government are among the many who have benefited from their efforts. Record Revivals features in both books. In addition to talking about his book and telling humorous, revealing stories about the record-shop business and the music industry at large, Graham will host a fun pop quiz with prizes and take part in a Q&A session. Food will be served until 9.30pm and there will be a licensed bar with real ale. The £6 admission charge includes a glass of wine on arrival and £3 discount off the retail price of £14.99 for the new book. Tickets can be bought at Mojos.

Gallows Close Centre volunteers, directors and staff The history of Gallows Close Centre GALLOWS Close Centre in Barrowcliff, Scarborough, was established in June 2005. Scarborough Council (SBC), who had operated the building as a play centre since 1985, approached a group of people, most of whom became directors, asking them to take over the operation of the building as SBC was closing four centres within the borough, to reduce expenditure. Three of the original directors continue to manage the centre from when it was established as a non-profit company limited by guarantee, without shares. The directors do not take any income from the business and have given support financially and with their time since its inception. They are Hazel Lynskey, a member of the council; Gill Kay, who was the senior youth worker for the area; and Jim Martin, who was a volunteer worker in the centre. Initially, Gallows Close Centre operated as an Ofsted-registered childcare facility with two Barrowcliff residents employed to provide the service. Unfortunately, it wasn’t used by local residents, possibly because the play centre had been free to use and the new company had to make charges to cover wages. This meant the childcare facility had to close when a staff member required maternity leave without a suitable replacement being found. The centre continued as a youth club for North Yorkshire County Council, led by director Gill Kay. Working with the social enterprise company Groundwork, a successful bid was made to the national lottery for a grant of £350,000. This enabled the employment of three parttime staff, all local residents, leading to the establishment of the many services available today. Following the end of the three-year grant, the increased use of the centre enabled the directors to employ a resident on a part-time basis who has been highly successful in developing the provision of services. The directors wish to acknowledge and thank development worker Kim Avison for her hard work in creating such a welcoming place to serve the community. Kim devotes many voluntary hours of work to the centre and through her, the centre been able to secure the welcome assistance of several volunteers.

Gallows Close Centre today Today, Gallows Close Centre is a non-profit, self-funded organisation reliant on local volunteers to help run a range of day-to-day activities. It is hired out to a variety of organisations. Development worker Kim Avison says: “We regularly put on our own fundraising events to maintain stability. Our hub offers a safe, warm, vibrant and friendly environment in an area classed as being high in deprivation.

Several funders, recognising the good provision, have given pots of funding which has enabled us to create a wide range of activities and opportunities for young people, vulnerable adults and unemployed people”. In 2017, the centre received £10,000 from the national lottery Awards For All. The grant helped it to set up Gallows Community Hub with a café to offer free use of the internet and computers, free advice from local organisations such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, Jobmatch, Beyond Housing (formerly Yorkshire Coast) and Sanctuary Housing. Kim Avison says: “We offer free training opportunities with Tyro Training (first aid, health & safety and food safety) and free funded employability courses with Askham Bryan College. The project is for people who struggle to gain access to digital online services, or need help with money matters, housing advice and universal credit issues as well as help with employment, apprenticeships and CVs. In 2017, the centre received matched funding from Community First Yorkshire, via the Aged Veterans Fund at the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust, enabled by the Chancellor using LIBOR funds. Kim says: “We have used this to deliver a community garden project with LJ and Property Gardening Services and ex-service people. The aim is to offer ex-service men and women of any age the chance to get out into the community, meet like-minded people, build confidence, reduce isolation and help to convert an empty grass area into a vibrant working community garden and wildlife area, with educational opportunities. The project is running fortnightly on Tuesdays, from 10am–2pm, through the winter period”. In July, the centre received over £50,000 to put together a young people’s activity programme which has given local disadvantaged children opportunities to do a range of affordable activities including gymnastics, karate, street dance, football, bushcraft activities with Hidden Horizons, youth clubs and family community events

such as a summer club, Halloween discos and Christmas parties. The project is aimed mainly towards lowincome families where children can build self-confidence and learn invaluable social skills that will help carry them through life and gain certificates as well as other opportunities to further gain proficiency in their chosen activity. Classes are now open to full-time working families in the Barrowcliff, Northstead, Newlands and Newby areas. Kim says: “These are just a few of the great activities we have to offer at Gallows close Centre. We also have yoga with Priya Venkatesh and a Wednesday morning playgroup called Playsongs for pre-school children, parents and carers, who can come along and enjoy singing, story time and refreshments. On Wednesday afternoons, Sophea Sheader runs a fun adult craft class called Glitterbelles Creative Corner. Steps 2@Gallows is a fun session for adults with learning disabilities which runs on a Thursday. On Tuesdays and Fridays, the centre’s Community Hub and Cafe is open to the public from 9.30am to 1pm, serving a full English breakfast from just £2.75, eat in or take away. Children’s birthday party packages are available from just £125 for 20 children, which includes, buffet food, party bags, disco lights and music and party games. All the centre’s staff and volunteers are DBS checked and have completed a first-aid and health and safety in the workplace training. m is looking for a reliable volunteer for just a couple of hours a week to maintain the centre’s website content; training will be provided. n If you are interested in setting up a new activity or would like further information on any of the classes, projects, hire fees, party packages or would like to make a donation, ring 378102 or email Kim is looking for a reliable volunteer for just a couple of hours a week to maintain the centre’s website content; training will be provided.

Two North American women head to Woodend NORTH American women are playing a couple of concerts at Woodend in Scarborough this month. Rachel Harrington, from Oregon, played in Scarborough in 2009 and last year and is back on 3 November. “Reared among the Pentecostal pines in the farthest corner of the American West, Rachel's albums have gained her the highest praise”, says Woodend promoter Chris Lee. “When Bob Harris first heard her in ’07, he hailed her debut as ‘absolutely brilliant [and] already a contender for album of the year’. “Four records later, she's accrued a fecund garden of similar blossoms including rave reviews in Q, Mojo and the Irish Times and a basketful of songwriting contest awards”. Rachel writes memorable original songs in the folk and country tradition and inspired versions of classic tunes from the Great American Songbook.

She dips into the British Celtic and folk traditions and appeals to both folk and country audiences. Canadian roots rocker Lynne Hanson takes her band the Good Intentions to Woodend on 8 November. Chris says: “Lynne has been nominated for one of the prestigious June awards several times and has been compared to such artists as Nanci Griffith and Lucinda Williams. “She fits squarely in the rock, blues and roots camp with a gritty and honest approach to songwriting. “She played a well-received solo set at the Station pub during Filey folk festival a few years back and has toured recently with guitar maestro Albert Lee and the acclaimed Gretchen Peters”, says Chris. Gigs start at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10; to book, ring 384500.

Norma Waterson’s 80th birthday party FOLK diva Norma Waterson will celebrate her 80th birthday with a big public party next summer. The Marquess of Normanby has given permission for Mulgrave Castle at Lythe, near Whitby, to be used for the event, from 28-30 June. The party has been dubbed Elephant at the Castle, because a former resident, Maharajah Duleep Singh is reputed to Norma Waterson at Musicport in have kept elephants 2010 (photo by Dave Barry) there in the 1850s. “The Watersons were

and are musical geniuses and Norma is the greatest living English person bar none”. The quote comes from Richard Thompson, one of many folk stars who are understood to have been invited to perform. Others include Norma’s daughter Eliza Carthy and Eliza’s pal Richard Hawley. The event is being organised by Jim and Sue McLaughlin of Whitby Musicport. Norma, who will hit her ninth decade a few weeks after the party, on 15 August, lives in Fylingthorpe with her husband Martin Carthy. Early-bird tickets will go on sale in December. Website: www.

A PIANO teacher from Scarborough features in a photo exhibition spotlighting women who work on Saturdays. Saturday Girls, by photographer Lewis Khan, can be seen at London’s Fitzrovia gallery until the 3 November. It features Sophie Brown, who gives private piano tuition during the week. At weekends, she runs a children’s musical theatre class at the YMCA, where Lewis

Words and photos by Dave Barry YORKSHIRE Ladies Indoor Bowling Association staged its president's day competition at Scarborough’s indoor bowls centre in North Marine Road. The venue was chosen because the 2018/19 season president, Brenda Foster, is from Scarborough. Using all eight rinks, the 64 players in 16 teams of four played for three hours. The visiting teams hailed from Doncaster, New Earswick near York, Harrogate, Selby,

New darts team formed in Cayton Photo by Kevin Allen

A GROUP of residents at a sheltered-housing scheme in Cayton have formed a darts team and have set their sights on the local leagues. Seven tenants stepped up to the oche at Beck Hole, run by Beyond Housing (formerly Yorkshire Coast Homes). The instigator, former local league player Carole DeCarteret, said she was surprised that many of the women wanted to play. “Especially as a number of us have mobility problems”, she said. “But the suggestion proved popular and now, after several weeks, we have a regular turn out for our Wednesday

evening practice sessions in the community centre”. They have been joined by a resident responder within the Coastcall 24-hour independent living support service. Anuschka Faulding lives at Beck Hole has become firm friends with the residents. Beyond Housing was formed in October, following the merger of Coast & Country Housing and Yorkshire Coast Homes. With offices in Redcar and Scarborough, the housing provider is responsible for the letting, management and maintenance of over 15,000 homes across the north east and North Yorkshire.

York, Redcar, Hornsea, North Cave and Leeds. A game between the ladies president and ladies vice-president, Ann Hargrave of Leeds, was won by the latter by 40 shots. Brenda said: “It was quite a prestigious day for the club. It made a great atmosphere and everyone enjoyed a great day, with the catering provided by the club’s catering staff and volunteers. This contributed to the success of the day for the ladies and guests who attended”.

Taekwondo team win bronzes THE EASTFIELD-BASED Nest North Yorkshire taekwondo team were all smiles after winning a clutch of bronze medals. The squad travelled hundreds of miles to take part in the Scottish Open, in Motherwell near Glasgow. Gracie-Mae Bell, 8, Kallum Locker, 8, and Oscar Barrett, 9, came away with a bronze medal for their patterns. Kallum also got a bronze for his sparring. “It was a great achievement for a local school in a national competition”, said Gracie-Mae’s proud mum Julie Macey-Hewitt.

Eastfield bowlers have fingers crossed L-R, Anuschka Faulding with new darts team members Carole DeCartaret, Rita Summers and Katrina Musgrave.

MEMBERS of Eastfield Bowling Club have all their fingers crossed. They are hoping they will finally be able to resume play on their green, which hasn’t been ready for some time.

The club was hoping to start its Wednesday afternoon social bowling for the winter on 24 October but had to postpone twice, first to 7 November and now to 21 November.

SQUASH CHAMPION PAYS VISIT TO SILVER ROYD I POPPED over to Silver Royd on a cold and wet October evening, for an exhibition of Squash with Nick Matthew OBE. The local community has come together and built the new facility, which is not just for enthusiasts of the sport who like to play after a hard day at the office, but it will also be an academy for Squash England to create world champions. This now brings me to one of them, Nick Matthew OBE, who has won everything going from three World titles to three commonwealth golds. Not only English, but born and bred in the city of steel, Sheffield. Nick was invited to open the courts, give coaching lessons to the youngsters of Scarborough and squash teams from Bridlington and Thornton-Le-Dale. He also gave three exhibition matches with local players Luke, Katie and Jamie who played first to 11. This was my first ever squash match, one thing I noticed was that this sport is not just a physical game but tests you mentally. The fitness of the players, from amateur to professional, to glide around the court whilst trying to outwit their opponent with a small rubber ball was unbelievable. I’ve never been a racquet ball fan, as I’ve never been a fan of tennis apart from playing swing ball on holiday or in the garden. I also had a game of Badminton in front of World Cup and Manchester United legend, Bobby Charlton, where my mum was my partner. I accidentally hit her with the racquet while trying to get the shuttlecock, then two minutes later she returned the favour by getting me in the face (the shuttlecock wasn’t even in play). At the end of the night, after all the speeches, which included one from Kevin McCabe, Sheffield United owner and MD of the Scarborough Group, who was one of the main people to bring this sport back to Scarborough, I got to speak to Nick Matthew OBE. When asked about the facilities at Silver Royd, he said: “These are great facilities for anyone young or old to the sport or people who are familiar or new to Squash, this is a great environment for people to get involved.” He also followed up saying: “the whole place is a great friendly place where people can be

Scarborough Hockey Club BASED at Scarborough College on Filey Road, Scarborough Hockey Club run three senior teams who all compete in the Yorkshire Hockey League. The men’s first team, captained by Riki Lawrence is currently 8th out of 12 teams in Division Three, with the second team, captained by

Crowds gather to watch Nick Matthew OBE in action proud to come, play and enjoy.” We moved on to the future of squash, as the sport has been wanting to kick off as an Olympic sport. squash has had rave reviews in the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aries, Argentina this year. I asked him about Squash will it be part of Paris 2024? “Hopefully after being dropped from previous Olympics, squash is in a good place, it’s a fast and fun sport, so finally it should be our time to join the Olympics.” “But the game is moving forward with interactive squash where players can use interactive walls and use technology like tablets to create a new dimension to the game. It’s all about attracting the youth and going global,” He added. We spoke about Nick earning his OBE that was given to him in 2015, he was nominated from England Squash where he is also an ambassador for Squash and is a great honour to help fly the flag for the game. I finished the interview talking about the sporting heritage of the city of Sheffield, where athletes Jess Ennis-Hill and footballers Harry Maguire and Kyle Walker are from. He said: “It’s great to see Sheffield and the county produce these great athletes and role models and I'm glad to be a part of it.” I thank Nick Matthews for talking to me, but I do think if you or your kids want to try something new, please go and give Squash a go. Who knows where it may lead, we could be having our own world champ from Scarborough in the future.

Scarborough Gymnasts Represent Team GB SCARBOROUGH Gymnastics Academy, based at Barry’s Lane, provided three members of the Great Britain team that competed at the European TeamGym Championships at Odivelas near Lisbon, Portugal from 17-20 October. Coach Nicky Walker was also with the GB team, along with gymnasts Damian Walker (16) and Joe Fishburn(17) who were both in the junior men’s team, and Megan Coates(19) who represented the senior woman’s team. The junior men’s team finished 4th in their event, behind Denmark, Sweden and Northway and ahead of 5th placed Estonia, while the senior women’s team was placed 7th out of ten teams. Sweden, Iceland and Denmark were the medalists in the senior women’s category.

FROM THE TOUCHLINE SCARBOROUGH have astounded both their supporters and probably themselves by sitting second in North One East; both leaders York and the Seasiders are on 32 league points apiece only separated by the minstermen’s superior points (scored and conceded) difference at the end of their second month in the regional league. The club’s aim I think at the start of the season was to hold their own at level six with survival then consolidation a reasonable goal. Nobody is getting carried away with the team’s early success but the rugby played has been so wonderfully entertaining that it is right that we take a look back at a hugely successful October. I finished last month’s review with a report on the Seasiders’ narrow 26-29 defeat at Huddersfield YMCA; Coach Simon Smith’s charges have won their four games since then and have gone through October undefeated having scored an amazing 23 tries and 153 points. First up was then league-leaders Morpeth at Silver Royd on the 29th of September; an absorbing contest in bright sunny conditions saw Scarborough Score three first half tries to lead 19-7 at the break. The strong Northumbriabased outfit fought-back with two second half tries with the only further home score being a Tom Ratcliffe penalty; however the Seasiders hung on for a narrow 22-17 win. Two sets of brothers turned out for Scarborough at West Leeds: Jonty and Jordan Holloway (left) and Euan and Drew Govier (right) Next up was West Leeds who have been a bit of a bogey side for Scarborough; however they needn’t have worried as a devastating display saw the Silver Royders blow the west Yorkshiremen away with a seven try 45-27 tour de force. And the Seasiders’ dynamic rugby style continued the following week against York with what is now regarded as the most exciting game of rugby seen at Silver Royd since it opened in January 2009. A game played at blistering speed ebbed and flowed throughout with York taking an early 12-0 lead then Scarborough fighting back to edge ahead at 19-12 before a couple of late first half tries saw York lead 24-19 at half-

time! The Champagne stuff continued after the break with Scarborough running in four tries without reply in 25 minutes and with quarter of an hour to go they led 43-24. Game over? Not a bit of it; York just wouldn’t lie down and ran in another three tries in seven mind-boggling minutes stunning the Silver Royd crowd into silence at 43-43. Joyous York celebrations were short lived as Scarborough skipper Matty Jones barged over from close range in injury-time for a memorable 50-43 victory which will live in your correspondent’s memory for a very long time. And finally to last Saturday at Pocklington where proceedings were almost mundane compared to the excitement of the previous week. Playing in cold, windy conditions Scarborough trailed 19-29 with a quarter of the game remaining; however a late surge produced two tries and a penalty for a 36-29 bonus-point win to round of a hugely successful month. Scarborough welcomed two new players to the fold in October; forward Cade Robinson who made a try-scoring debut against York and back Manning Smith who came off the bench to make his debut late in the game at Pocklington. Both are young New Zealanders and it’s hoped that they settle in and enjoy their time at Silver Royd. With Scarborough not taking part in the Yorkshire Cup this season, there will only be three North One East fixtures in November. This Saturday sees another local derby at Silver Royd with Driffield RUFC the visitors. The following week is blank but is followed by a trip to County Durham on the 17th to take on Consett who were promoted from Durham/ Northumberland One last season and are currently bottom of North One East. Former National League side Morley RFC are the visitors on the 26th of November. I make no apologies for this month’s column concentrating on the Scarborough first team as their performances have engendered a real feel-good factor throughout the club; however next month I’ll be looking at the other teams and activities at Silver Royd.

TOP OF THE LEAGUE Scarborough Athletic stormed to the top of the Evo Stik League Premier Division with a fantastic run of results that saw them lose just two of their opening 17 league matches to open up an 8-point lead at the top, although they had played more games than every other team in the division, with ace striker James Walshaw scoring 13 goals in those 17 games to go top of the scoring charts. A run of four successive clean-sheets included a stunning 6-0 away success at Lancaster City, and a hugely impressive 1-0 win at fellow promotion hopefuls Gainsborough Trinity.

guide Got a dash cam in your car? Chances are many of you do, as they’re great for recording possible accidents and incidents that take place on the road before you.

DASH TO REPORT THE NUTTERS in hard copy format... until now. Spearheaded by UK dash cam maker Nextbase, police forces across the UK are signing up to a new National Dash Cam Safety Portal to accept dash cam footage, meaning it’s now as simple as clicking on a website, uploading the file, and filling out a witness statement. n Find out more at
