Scarborough Borough Council’s Community Environment Fund has awarded £1,300 to the Sweet Pea Toilet Trust to help provide new urinals for the public use toilets in Scalby.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service is urging people who are visiting the countryside to dispose of cigarettes carefully, not leave glass bottles lying around and not to light BBQs or fires on dry grass or moorland.
The service asks that if people are planning a bonfire or a garden waste fire to consider waiting until the prolonged hot spell is over, as it's easy for these types of fires to spread out of control when conditions are so dry.
