NEWS ROUNDUP: Middlesbrough hoping for city status & meet Frank the fundraising dog

 

Middlesbrough is once again making moves to become a city & Frank the fundraising dog will be at South Park’s fun run, Darlington, on Wednesday. 

Middlesbrough is making moves to achieve city status. The Council is making the push as part of celebrations for the Queen’s platinum jubilee next year. The plans have been met with opposition with some claiming city status isn't going help the town's poverty problem.

An authority-run online poll found 91% of 2,874 responders wanted Middlesbrough to put a third bid together for city status.

And a motion to launch the effort was passed at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Wednesday night with the idea gathering cross party support (July 28).

A new regeneration vision for South Shields
A new version of regeneration plans for South Shields has been revealed. Council officers are  looking at new schemes to revitalise the town post pandemic that include more housing and leisure, with a focus on walking and cycling, green spaces and public art.
According to a presentation given to borough councillors this week, the pandemic has “accelerated retail decline” and council officers are now looking at new schemes to revitalise South Shields.
Alongside new homes proposed at Holborn and residential opportunities being explored at the former Central Library site, council bosses hope to improve digital connectivity by introducing public Wi-fi across the town.
Frank the fundraising dog
A retired greyhound is set to return to the track to fundraise for a bereaved parents charity. Frank was taken in by Sam and Dan for emotional support following the tragic loss of three babies, with Sam saying his affection and goofiness has kept them going. Frank will be equipped with a donation box at Darlington's South Park fun run on Wednesday, for charity 4Louis.
