TEN YEARS AGO...

ANIMAL lovers hoping to create a safe haven for unwanted pets were halfway towards a PS300,000 target. Saltburn Animal Rescue Association launched its appeal to create an animal sanctuary in East Cleveland in 1999 and, four years on, they had amassed a staggering PS150,000. "When we launched the appeal it may have been an impossible dream, but we hoped we could achieve it and the more we've worked on it the more we've realised we must achieve it," said SARA chairman Ann Prosser.

SCALLYWAGS with energy to burn had a new place to go in New Marske. For the first time in several years, a mother and toddler group had opened. Scallywags met at the New Marske Jubilee Hall, Gurney Street. It gave children aged up to five a place to play and mums a place to meet. The group was the brainchild of mum-of-six Janet Appleby, daughter Sabrina Bell and friend Tina Dixon.

SCORES of women and children marched through Middlesbrough to highlight Teesside's "streets of fear".

Middlesbrough Domestic Violence Forum (MDVF) organised the march to highlight the rights of women and vulnerable people to walk freely without fear of violence or crime. Some 70 people waved banners and sang as they marched through Linthorpe Road into the town centre. Becky Rogers, MDVF co-ordinator, said: "It was a really great evening - we are really pleased with it."
