Who are we?

We are a small voluntary group committed to green and healthy living issues in, and around, our community of Nunthorpe ( even though Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland Councils are responsible for the western and eastern parts respectively).

We work closely with various groups ( Nunthorpe Parish Council, Community Council and Ward Councillors ( in both Mbro and R&C parts of Nunthorpe), other community groups, including Nunthorpe Greenspaces, and the Nunthorpe and Marton Playing Fields Association.

We want to help make Nunthorpe even more green and healthy

What we do

Engage with the community of  Greater Nunthorpe  and Middlesbrough Council and Redcar and Cleveland Councils regarding better planning, consultation and community infrastructure, especially around green ways and health.

Inform and stimulate debate – on green issues, our environment, minimising pollution and littering, and overall promoting healthy living, in terms of the physical and mental health of our community. We do so with

  •  regular postings on  our Facebook page, and other social media,
  • Leaflets/ posters for those who  don’t use social media
  • Greater Nunthorpe News (GNN) contribute in many ways this new quarterly  magazine Autumn issue 

Our activities

We held four consultation events – to develop plans for an interactive website, a variety of green and healthy activities and some legacy facilities for Nunthorpe.

Lottery Grant Our plans informed a bid to the Community Fund of the National Lottery and were successful in an award of just under £10,000.

Contributes a leading part in Middlesbrough Alternative Planning Partnership which brings together green and community groups across Middlesbrough to promote the best planning and the protection of green areas and health in our town.

Morton Carr Lane Woods

This wood is no longer for sale by Redcar and Cleveland Council! see https://www.facebook.com/groups/NunthorpesGreenSpaces

Great news as this is where we were going to hold the first of our activity days because it’s a wonderful place for all to enjoy. It’s one of the first places for our QR codes which tell you more about the woods, the wildlife and the history – see

Covid-19 has had a huge impact upon our community and prevented us holding three activity days in partnership with our Community Council and Middlesbrough Environment City. The Lottery gave us permission to revise our plans but with the same overall aims, so we have focussed on walks, a map and the use of QR cards and developing this website for you. More news to follow.
