Big announcement for Teesworks
A global offshore wind manufacturer will build a new multimillion-pound turbine blade factory on Teesworks, in what has been called a major vote of confidence for the site. The factory from GE Renewables Energy will create hundreds of jobs and will sit alongside a new port being created on-site, making it the UK’s premier location for offshore wind.
A fundraiser is taking on a 2000 mile running challenge for the North Tees NHS trust. Inspired by Captain Tom Moore, and witnessing first hand the impact of the pandemic has had on NHS staff, Ben Lamb is hoping to raise one pound for every mile ran over the course of the next few months.
