Superb Kirkleatham Walled Garden footage and a gin win in Friday Five

Where did January go!? With the blink of an eye the month has been and gone and we’re reflecting on another week of good news stories and upcoming events.


New drone footage of Kirkleatham Walled Garden

One of the biggest projects for Redcar | Cleveland in 2020 will come to fruition in the spring when Kirkleatham Walled Garden opens.

The latest drone footage was released earlier this week and it looks spectacular.

You can see it below.



Gin win

We enjoyed the story of Brotton woman Rachael Conisby’s gin being named among the best in the world at a London awards ceremony.

Rachael – nicknamed Shorty – won a Bronze Award at the World Gin Awards where her own secret recipe saw her mingling with representatives from the globe’s top companies.

Way to go, Rachael! There’s more from Teesside Live below.


Contract success

How’s this for exciting contract news for a Redcar | Cleveland business? Skippers Lane-based ERW has been commissioned to revamp hundreds of original windows as part of a project to redevelop a historic building in Manchester.

The Grade-II listed London Road Fire Station is being transformed into business and residential premises.

There’s more here.
