Saltburn, Marske and New Marske Parish Council, accompanied by Marske Fishermen's Choir and Marske Junior and Learning Brass Band, are holding a Community Carol Concert on Thursday 14th December at 7.00pm. It will be held at St Mark's Church, Marske Road, Marske. Mince pies and hot drinks will be served after the service. Everyone is welcome.
The Parish Council are delighted to be taking part in the first Saltburn Christmas Tree Festival at Emmanuel Church, organised by Saltburn Women's Institute. Groups have been asked to provide and decorate trees which will be displayed in the church from Saturday 2nd December to Saturday 16th December from 10am - 4pm for everyone to see.
The Parish Council chose the colours of their logo (blue and green) as the main theme for the tree. The tree is decorated with various Christmas baubles plus a few extras to show items from Saltburn like hedgehogs and foxes from the Valley Gardens. Saltburn Charity Crafters kindly knitted a themed skirt and a sea shore scene for the bottom of tree, as well as some plump brussel sprouts!!
The Parish Council has been approached by the Sievert family from New Marske, who tragically lost their son Tom in July this year after he suffered from a fatal coronary occlusion - a sudden stoppage of the heart. The family are fundraising to have defibrillators installed throughout the Parish and Council have agreed to work in partnership with them to achieve their aim of installing 35 units, one for every year of Tom’s life.
Saltburn, Marske and New Marske Parish Council have secured funding to install some outdoor gym equipment on Marske Recreation Ground.

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS EVENTS
PARISH COUNCIL CAROL SERVICE

Following rock falls in the summer at Huntcliff, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council have looked into this. The cliff was stable with no further falling rocks when they visited on Monday lunch time (1st August 2016) though the rock fall had left an overhang that would come down in due course. This was likely to affect the Cleveland Way footpath on the top of the cliff though there was currently no sign of the movement of the path.
The Coastal Protection engineer also visited. There are signs near the Ship Inn warning of the danger of rock falls and advising people to stay away from underneath the cliffs. This warning was also put out by the coastguards and the RNLI. There are few options to put out any additional signs or barriers as the beach is covered by the tide twice a day,
Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council will continue to monitor the situation and will take action where they are able.
Walkers are advised to take care at all times, both on the cliff path and on the beach.
The Parish Council are pleased to report that a match funded grant was secured from Impetus Environmental Trust to make some welcome additions to the play equipment at the Mount Pleasant play area in Marske
Our Parish Chairman for 2017/18 is Councillor Olwyn Twentyman. Our Vice Chairman is Councillor Vera Rider.
