Fire crews in North Yorkshire were called to put out a fire at a log store at 5am on Sunday (November 3). The logs were stored on a farm on Harome Heads Road, near Helmsley.

FARMERS’ MARKET APPROVAL: The National Farmers Retail and Markets Association (FARMA) has awarded Stokesley Farmers’ Market an 84 per cent approval rating, following a visit from one of its mystery shoppers last month. The organisation runs an annual competition for best farmers’ market and will be announcing the outcome of its competition judging later this month. It is the first time the Stokesley market has entered the competition, which looks at a wide range of criteria, including layout, quality of produce, and value for money and traders’ knowledge.
iPAD STOLEN: An iPad Mini was stolen from a property on Sowerby Crescent in Stokesley between 8.30am and 2pm on Wednesday, October 2. Anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious is asked to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101.
GARDEN WASTE CHARGES: Ryedale District Council has introduced an annual £27 fee for residents wanting their garden waste collections to continue. The charge will be voluntary, but the authority has warned the income is needed to protect the service, which it is not obliged to provide. The system will come into force in June. Other waste services will not be affected.
