Some of this stuff would make a good comedy script [8D]

A similar article appears each time this place changes name.

After their half XXXXXXd attempt at a Brazilian rodízio without actually researching their subject matter properly I’m hardly surprised at this news.

Another Brain dead idea

The place is a joke these days. Terrible pubs and not a single convenience store on the High street. After 4pm on a Sunday you have to go to Eaglescliffe or deep into Willey Flats to get milk/bread/nappies/booze.

How has a place that likes to bill itself as 'The best high street in Britain'got itself into a situation whereby the most basic of amenities is no longer available?

Yarm was voted Britains Best High Street by BBC Breakfast although it was some years ago. No idea who voted but the criteria was a High Street with a wide variety of shops it featured the local butcher, a gentlemans outfitters, a florist and a couple more that I can recall but, what I do know is that none of them are still in business. There are many shops that now stand empty. Some think that having a business on Yarm High Street is a licence to print money. They soon find out that this is not the case. Greedy landlords and punitive Business Rates are the biggest problems.

I've lived in Yarm for all of my 62 years but hardly ever go for a pint there - food shopping is expensive - difficult to find a parking space - but I wouldnt want to live anywhere else on Teesside / N. Yorkshire for the simple reason that everywere has these problems.

Stokesley is less stress - tend to go to Yarm on a Sunday when less congestion.

Yarm is the poster boy for the region, it carries the region, sorry but that is just how it is.

It is the vision of an upmarket and respectable Northern England. A place that can compete with the Harrogate, Winchester, Belgravia and Sandbanks of this world. A place where sofistos can drink fine expensive wine and meet with other sofistos. A place where standards are both high and expected, in the ocean where the big sharks feed.

You all want to live there so stop pretending you don’t.

Proudfoot, pray tell me what has Yarm got in common with, Sandbanks, Harrogate or Belgravia.......I lived in Yarm for 30+ years and could not wait to get out of the place[;)]

People go to Belgravia, Sandbanks, Harrogate and Yarm for the same reason Willie Sutton used to rob banks....

Because 'dats where da money is!!!'

If it was so bad how come you lived there 30 years?

The pubs were in desperate need of a face lift and thankfully that has happened in the past 12 months or so. Admittedly, they've all now got that "unfinished American bar" look about them with exposed lights, wires and brickwork.

You can get Punk IPA in most places though, and that is just fine with me.

EP, 30 years ago it was a decent place to live and with 3 kids at Yarm and Teesside High it was convenient, the decline of the High Street, traffic, lack of infrastructure, aggressive bouncers, drug usage, YTC and SBC are inept.......need I go on?

Their must be rose tinted specs you are looking through. 30+ years ago Yarm was place that flooded on regular basis and stunk.

It became uber trendy in the mid-nineties in my opinion Galli.

The area expanded with the new estates and the traffic became increasingly congested. There was a lot of development behind the high street with all the Riverside Apartment developments. It became very popular nationally during this period and now it gets a lot of celebs being photographed in the HS.

The bouncers all work for a security firm, a mate of mine used to do the Bull on a weekend, then Boro/Redcar when needed. Sometimes after his Bull shift he would be sent to a night club. They were not around back in the day but

Drugs; Not good, never seen it but been reliably informed.

Mr footy, Yarm did have a problem with flooding, just like many places but the installation of the Flood Defence Scheme fixed that problem. There used to be a nasty smell around Yarm thanks to the Hide and Skin yard but the closure of that company solved the problem overnight.

EP, you are correct about Yarm becoming uber trendy in the 1990's. Yarm 85, Chadwicks, Black Bull and the George and Dragon had never had it so good.

All that changed when a certain football club thought that their players living in Yarm was not the best idea, of course singles night at The Keys meant that Tuesday was the most popular night of the week. That, of course ended, when all the grannies had been grabbed.

Drugs are everywhere but the same applies to most places.

As for the bouncers.....just stand within earshot of four of them having a conversation.......scary!!

The players from the 90s mostly lived in Yarm. Even up until the mid noughties. They would have got too much hassle elsewhere. Plus its convenient to drop the kids off at YS. Celebrities, managers and players from other clubs started hanging around in Yarm too.

There were no bouncers back in the day but they are a necessity now due to the popularity of the High Street and the jerk patrol that is required.

Used to be a decent night out in the late 80's early 90's. now its just full of chavs and wannabee 'gangstas' on a night, too congested during the day and impossible to move through when all the ex yuppies in their SUV's and Range Rover Sports are dropping off/picking their spawn up from Yarm school
