Local News

We have painted

Thirsk Tourist Information is now open again Mon to Sat 10am-3pm. In the past two weeks we have accomplished the massive job of clearing everything away, cleaning and redecoration. As you know, the information centre is run by 32 volunteers without any external funding. Despite the name, the office is for residents as much as for visitors so please come in for answers to your questions about living in this area or just for an informal chat. We have walks, maps, books, Thirsk and Yorkshire souvenirs, community information and extensive details on all the things to do for miles around. We also do photocopying and will print for you documents received by email.

Shape up and save

Hambleton residents looking to shape up and get fit in 2019 need look no further than their local leisure centre in Thirsk, Northallerton, Bedale or Stokesley. They are offering big savings on gym and swim memberships if you join in the month of January. When you take out an annual Zest Freedom or Swim Cash membership you will receive two months free membership. Zest Freedom membership allows unlimited access to the gym, swimming, fitness classes and more. Zest Swim membership is for those who like to take their exercise and relaxation in the water. If you are keen to exercise but find it hard due to weight or mobility problems and the gym or water is not for you, then consider Northallerton’s Toning Suite which is offering twelve months membership for the price of ten on annual cash memberships provided you join in January. Contact the centres on Thirsk 01845 522447, Northallerton 01609 777070, Bedale 01677 427272, Stokesley 01642 711140 or visit the website at
