Local Good Samaritans.

I am writing to express our heartfelt thanks to the kind drivers who stopped to help my daughter who was trapped in her car after skidding on what appeared to be black ice.

This happened on the morning of Thursday, November 2, just after 8am as she was on her way to work from Guisborough, going along Stokesley Road, before she got to Pinchinthorpe.

Her car flipped over and ended up in the ditch. Fortunately the drivers who stopped managed to get her out. Two of them were staff from James Cook University Hospital who checked her out before the ambulance arrived.

Thank you also to the caring ambulance personnel who got there very promptly. My daughter was very lucky to have got out unscathed, apart from a few cuts and bruises, and we are so grateful for all the help she received.

MR and MRS G WALKER, Guisborough

MAY I through sincerely thank the gentleman who found my wallet in Nunthorpe and returned it to me intact. I was so shocked at the time I didn't ask the gentleman's name or reward him for his trouble. Once again thank you to an honest citizen in our community.

L HASLAM, Marton

PLEASE can you put a big thank you in to a group of lads and lasses (three boys and two girls), possibly 20 years old and under, who came to my aid on Saturday, November 4.

I was returning from Helmsley when my car broke down near to Chop Gate about 2.30pm. I don't own a mobile phone and another motorist kindly phoned the Green Flag organisation. They said they would be with me within the hour.

My car was in such a position I thought it was wiser for me to stand outside to wait to be rescued. Several motorists stopped and asked if I needed help and to them I also say thank you.

I was getting very cold and miserable when the breakdown van didn't arrive, when a car full of young people passed me going towards Stokesley. A little while later this car returned and parked near my car.

I must admit at 76 years of age I am rather wary of some of today's youngsters. These young people had come back to see if they could help me. One of them with some mechanical knowledge tried to get the car mobile but with no luck. As time was progressing they used their phones to call Green Flag and were given an estimated time of arrival. They stayed and chatted with me until their own commitments demanded they got underway.

I unfortunately only remember one of their names. He was Martin. I do remember that two of them came from Coulby Newham.

I must thank these young people for their help and kindness and restoring my faith in the young. Thank you for cheering me up with your amusing conversation.
