Hi
Sad to see the venue for the 20th birthday bash completely destroyed in a fire . Good memories of that day.

I forgot to post something about this, the whole thing went up last Thursday and there's nothing left of it now.  The rumour is an insurance job as the demolition was expensive (due to asbestos in certain parts of it), so this makes it all a lot easier/cheaper.  We're hoping they don't decide to put more housing on it, as the single road that leads from town to here is already way beyond capacity.

The asbestos thing may prevent, or at least delay housing.

Would you like a small wager, Leon ?

No thanks! 

Without boring everyone, the 'Marton Crawl' has been a problem for nearly 20 years now.  They tried to put a bypass in but a small number of folks complained that it would reduce their property values so it got delayed and delayed.  Since then they've built on sections of the proposed bypass route (housing and a hospital extension) so there's little chance of being able to put anything in place now.  They've also added more housing all along Marton Road, which has exacerbated the problem massively.

If you ever need to go to the hospital around rush hour, it can take you up to an hour just to get out of the car park after your appointment.

Oh, dear. I don't want to see

Hope things turn out for the best.

Does sound like the capacity 'has been reached'....Unfortunately that doesn't seem to matter much, nowadays.

An hour to get out of a hospital car park ?......Bloomin' heck.

Hi

I can vouch for the marton crawl I regularly come that way from helmsley via stokesley and it is a nightmare even on a Sunday.
