It’s Friday Five – our weekly roundup of five great things happening in Our Redcar Cleveland each week!
1. OK, so it’s not in #OurRedcarCleveland but we hope everyone has a brilliant time at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Middlesbrough.
2. After being laid off ONE DAY into his working career, young Lewis Mitchell is now thriving thanks to his hard work and the support of a great new employer.
3. Top arrows – Glen Durrant wins again! Great darts player and Redcar | Cleveland Ambassador Glen Durrant wiped the world’s number one Michael van Gerwen opposition to lift his second PDC title. The former Beyond Housing team member Glen is wowing the pro circuit.
4. Redcar | Cleveland Ambassadors SABIC made a generous donation to the East Cleveland Scarecrow Festival. Running from 3 – 31 August, the popular festival is the brainchild of fellow Redcar | Cleveland Ambassador and human dynamo Denise Nesbit.

5. This moved us – Vinny, a charming three-year-old pooch from Redcar, has become the first dog in the UK to have an ankle replacement. We hope Vinny, who has been suffering from osteoarthritis, isn’t feeling too woof after his ground breaking operation.
