Another successful Saltburn Hill Climb, organised by Middlesbrough and District Motor Club, was held in September 2012. This years event was unfortunately cancelled due to the forecast. The Motor Club have decided not to reschedule it for this year but hope to be back in 2014.


The Olympic Torch came through Marske and Saltburn on Monday 18th June. It was a beautiful day and many people turned out to see it. John Pearson from Saltburn was one of the torch bearers in Saltburn. Photos are shown, including one of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council staff and Tracy Meadows the Clerk of the Parish Council, standing with John Pearson after the event. The other photo is of John whilst carrying it through Saltburn.
