  • A guillotine waiting to fall

    PICKERING'S Civic Society seemed to have had an excellent meeting on many topics. According to the other week's headlines, the main item of general concern was the unresolved plans of Safeway over the development of a new store, which appears to have been hanging over the heads of local folk like a guillotine waiting to fall. As this decision affects the future of, not only Pickering, but also Malton and Whitby, and everyone who believes that the revival of the railway would help bring more prosperity to Ryedale and the north, such indecision's by a purely commercial firm should not be allowed to affect the well-being of the public at large. Having failed to make its mind up about what to do, the public should be allowed to now have precedence so that the future well-being of the whole communications network between the coast and the inland towns is no longer left in doubt. read more

  • Malton run ends as Pikes power to victory

    Ryedale Beckett League Division One - Pickering 128 for 1 bt Malton and Old Malton 127 for 8 by 9 wkts - PICKERING ended Malton and Old Malton's record as the only unbeaten side in the division. The Pikes' decision to put Malton in looked to be a mistake as Malton raced to 69 for 1 after six overs with West Indian and Dunnington professional Kirk Powell (33) in full flow and Greg Johnson also playing well. The game changed with the wicket of Powell, caught and bowled by Mark Shepherd. Ady Boyes was in great form, taking 4 for 18, while Matt Hartup took 2 for 33. Excellent fielding from the young players in the Pickering side restricted Malton to 58 in the last nine overs. In reply, Colin Frank made an impressive 67 not out, putting on 80 for the first wicket with Mark Shepherd (26). When Shepherd was out, Aussie Sean Stuchbery (20 not out) knocked the rest of the runs off with Frank. read more
