Marske-by-the-Sea is a village in the unitary authority of Redcar and Cleveland and the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, England. It is located on the coast, between the seaside resorts of Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-Sea, although it is not itself a seaside resort. Marske is in the civil parish of Saltburn, Marske and New Marske and comprises the wards of Longbeck (shared with New Marske) and St Germains. Marske is mentioned in the Domesday Book. St Germain's Church was consecrated by bishop Ægelric between 1042 and 1056. The Royal Flying Corps had a landing strip and schools in Marske. 'Captain' W. E. Johns, the author of the Biggles books, was based at Marske during part of the First World War, from April till August 1918. The Bristol M1C Monoplane, The Red Devil, was first flown from this RFC base. The RAF later administered a base here. After the Second World War the site of the aerodrome became an ICI depot and later a housing estate, The Landings, with roads named on an aeronautical theme: Avro Close, Blackburn Grove, De Havilland Drive – leading onto Vickers Lane–, Beardmore Avenue, Folland Drive, Wellington Close, Brabazon Drive, Halifax Close and Lysander Court.
About Our Village Hall
Managed by a small but dedicated group of volunteers since 1983 when they registered as the charity "Marske Centre Ltd", taking over from the local council (now Redcar & Cleveland Council), who had proposed the centre to be closed as they had found it not financially viable for them to continue. We provide facilities for a wide range of community-based activities, as well as live entertainment on Saturday nights presented by the centre in our function room... "The Rock 'n' Roll Ballroom". Featuring some of the best bands in Yorkshire, Durham and Northumberland as well as others from further afield. John Hullah Chairman

Playgroup Marske Community Parent & Toddler Group Our playgroup is a registered charity, which provides a range of play activities for children aged from birth to 4 years old. Here children can spend quality time with their parents/carers whilst enjoying a varied program of activities, which promote children’s personal, social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. The group has been running for more than 30 years. All staff have enhanced CRB checks. Staff members have undertaken pediatric first aid training and childcare training. As a charity we have a committee with parent membership which meets to discuss the running of the group, fundraising, trips and other relevant items. We have a baby group and two age appropriate groups for toddlers. BABY GROUP - Tuesdays 09:30 - 11:15 - Drop in session. At this session we have a range of toys from baby play mats and soft toys to more interactive role-play toys for older babies. Here babies can play in a safe environment and experience a variety of stimulating toys. Babies learn to mix with other children and at this group can move from baby toys to older toys and they grow and become more active. Parents can meet new friends and enjoy a chat together. TODDLER GROUPS - Wednesdays & Thursdays 09:30 - 11:30 - Booking Required. Age 18 month to pre-school. These sessions include water play, sand, role play, creativity table, play dough, painting and drawing, table top activities, slide, climbing and hiding boxes, construction, cars, dolls, books and group singing at the end of playing time. Craft and play activities are based around different themes each half term enabling children to share new experiences and develop new skills and knowledge. At the older toddler group some activities are further developed so they are suitable for their developmental level, for example we bake with the children. Children are encouraged to sit together in small groups as they learn to socialise, take turns and share. This develops concentration and confidence and helps to equip the children for their transition to school. For more information or to enquire about a place, please email email@example.com
