GP Taylor: State must step in to give rural areas transport

I HAVEN’T driven my car for several days. This isn’t out of virtue. It’s just that I live in Whitby and last Thursday I found a parking space two streets from my house and didn’t want to risk having to park in Ruswarp over the Regatta Festival last weekend. This is quite normal for people who live on my street. Parking has replaced weather as a topic of conversation.

The Yorkshire Post says: Stamp of approval for Captain Cook’s contribution

Captain James Cook’s voyage of discovery on HMS Endeavour changed our understanding of the world forever, bringing back vital new discoveries about longitude, geography, weather patterns and animal and plant life. As such, it is highly appropriate that the 250th anniversary of the Yorkshireman’s pioneering trip is being immortalised by the Royal Mail with a set of 10 new stamps.

Fitting monument to Yorkshire hero of high seas

Captain James Cook would have been no stranger to foreboding skies on his globe-trotting adventures in the 18th century so it is perhaps appropriate that this photograph captures a long-standing monument to his achievements on a dramatic-looking day on the North York Moors.
