Middlesbrough's parks will return to normal summer opening hours, Mayor Andy Preston has announced. The change will come into effect on Monday, June 1, and will also see the re-opening of the car park at Stewart Park. Nationwide rules continue to apply and the parks will continue to be monitored including by Council Street Wardens.
The nationwide ban on menthol flavoured cigarettes and tobacco has been hailed as another important step in the fight to stamp out the habit. Health chiefs say the ban - which came into force earlier this month (May 20) - will help prevent children taking up smoking.
Community groups or projects in Middlesbrough that could do with a little helping hand can access grants of up to £1,500. The Community Fund programme is open to residents or small groups who have an idea to do something good in their community or established groups seeking extra support for their work.
