Team Nunthorpe

It’s a real privilege to be ward councillor for Nunthorpe – and more so than ever over the past month.

From our fireworks extravaganza to astonishing poppy tributes – our area has pulled together and done us proud.

First and foremost, a big thank you to the community groups and volunteers who have made our events so fantastic. And another thank you to those residents who have supported and enjoyed them.

Here are three Nunthorpe things to keep you updated.

Lest We Forget

Nunthorpe is known for its annual poppy displays.

It’s a source of real pride for residents – and visitors never fail to be impressed.

This year was no exception. We had an array of stunning displays across Nunthorpe, including at the war memorial, churches and the train station.

Young and old came together for the blessing of the poppies at the train station, and we visited Nunthorpe Oaks Care Home afterwards. 

An amazing Nunthorpe effort.

Roll up, roll up!

We’ve had a fantastic run of events in Nunthorpe.

But they don’t happen without fastidious planning and volunteers.

As well as being a Nunthorpe ward councillor, I’m a community council member and parish councillor too. It’s a great way to keep your finger on Nunthorpe’s pulse.

Rest assured

After reports of antisocial behaviour on The Avenue in Nunthorpe, I felt it really important to act quickly and reassure residents.

Police agreed to step up patrols in the area and also sent out a letter to those living nearby to inform them of the increased activity and how to report further incidents.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you are aware of antisocial behaviour taking place in your road – and together we’ll tackle it.


If you have any concerns, issues, ideas or suggestions please don’t hesitate to contact me either via the Nunthorpe Matters Facebook page, via mieka_smiles@middlesbrough.gov.uk or on 07938119858. My next ward surgery will take place on Monday, November 18 at 6.30pm at Nunthorpe Institute. Make sure to pop by!
