Thank you for your comment.

Actually Redcar & Cleveland Council joined the Yorkshire Tourist Board two years ago. We left Northumbriam Tourist Board at the same time. The NTB ceased to exist about a year ago.

how much did it cost to change all the stationary to say yorkshire instead of cleveland?

Chris & Glynis Abbott said...

It cost absolutely nothing at all.

The motion put to the Council, agreeing to use Yorkshire as part of its postal address,included the words "at no cost to the Borough Council." There was no budget allocated to the change and, indeed, it required no cost.

All existing headed paper stock was used up first. It is strange that this is the only thing the opponents of recognising our status as part of Yorkshire can nit-pick about. The same people did not use this argument when they insisted that the Council deleted Middlesbrough from the postal address of the town hall. When that was changed it was done regardless of any cost.
