Public Consultation starts this week for a proposed Country Club to serve the Yarm Area. For anyone interested it will run from 12.00 noon until 6.45 pm on Thursday 21st August at the Fellowship Hall in Yarm, opposite High Church Wynd. The meeting is open to any members of the public and members of the development team will be on hand throughout the day to help out. The development will involve:- A new 25m swimming pool for Yarm Spa facilities Health and fitness facilities A restaurant All set in a contemporary and highly imaginative building which sits in with the landscape and takes advantage of the spectacular views over the Leven Valley. Despite the recent article that’s appeared in the Evening Gazette, it’s not a night club or concert hall but a place where you can get fit, get pampered and get a really nice meal with produce grown from the market garden that’s going to be established around the Club. When the vines on the south facing hill slope have started to produce their grapes, you might even be able to have a bottle of Yarm’s first home-produced Claret. The facility will be funded privately and won’t involve any subsidy from the public purse. Come along and have a look at the proposals at the exhibition. The plans will also be available on but only after the consultation has taken place, to encourage as many people as possible to come along.
