Country Diary: A bit of grated cheese can save wrens’ lives

Having recently filled a couple of containers with peanuts and fat balls at Seamer Road mere site, we wondered how they were faring. Would local birds have discovered their extra food supply? We’re pleased to say they had, and the chief visitors were a variety of tits and a chaffinch. Good news will spread!

Walks: A splendid walk on the Yorkshire Wolds

The Yorkshire Wolds provide splendid walking, and it’s like being in another world. Woodland and dales, hills and villages, are all imbued with soft light and clear air. As the Yorkshire Wolds are composed of chalk, any rainwater is absorbed rapidly, helping the land dry out very quickly. Conditions underfoot are seldom wet for long.

Social mobility is particularly poor in Scarborough.

Opinion: Giving children more opportunities in life

I live in Whitby – it is an area I love and choose to call home. For a long time it has saddened me that Whitby, Scarborough and Filey are areas in which young people don’t realise the same opportunities to get on in life as they do in other parts of the country. I believe we can do something about this.

Opinion: Is there a duller week in the year than this one?

The Christmas and New Year break is fast becoming a distant memory, with the only reminder being the nearly empty box of Celebrations – if your house is anything like ours, there will be half a dozen tiny Bounty bars rattling around the bottom.
