At (Redcar Past & Present), we are trying to locate/identify the owners/editors of the former weekly newspapers, The Cleveland Standard, Redcar and Saltburn News, Redcar and Saltburn Gazette. We have to date tried many avenues but without success.
The accreditation’s to the newspapers throughout this site are from films the copyright of the British Library. (i.e. They have copyright of their films, and advice should be sought before copying.) Should any person know the current owners or the last editor/owner of these newspapers please notify the web master of this site     


Now that Redcar Past & Present site is up and running, it goes without saying that a great deal of people still help me, and need to be thanked. For keeping my site running with new software, and answering computer problems which are beyond my experience. I wish to thank ‘all’ at staff at Lucid Technology (formerly Yarm Computers,) especially Dean Clarke. Next time you are looking for advice try Lucid Technology first. You will be surprised.

The next big thank you goes to my friend Fred Brunskill, who keeps me correct with dates and other information, but especially photographs old and new. Chris Hansom. Thanks also go to all Cleveland Redcar Library staff, for the help and assistance given finding documents and books for information from so long ago. 

Last but not least without all your help, and others that I have not mentioned along the way, (they know who they are) may I thank you all for getting Redcar Past & Present up and running on a daily basis.
The information, help, and encouragement I have received from you all, has been overwhelming, and  is greatly appreciated

As we go along I will make further accreditation’s below to the person(s) media that have assist me along the way, maybe unknown to them
