Redcar has a special spark about it, an atmosphere I have never felt anywhere else. We may have steel in our blood but we will still see our community succeed without the plant on our doorstep; we are even stronger than steel. We will flourish as a town, its on the brink of happening and I cannot wait to enjoy the successes of Redcar, my hometown.

The Last Resort

It's a strange thing, living in a holiday resort: particularly strange, maybe, when you haven't always lived there and it used to be somewhere you went for a daytrip on a Summer day.

Close your eyes for a minute. Think of a favourite place on the coast. Tune into your memory sound bank and start to imagine the sounds that fill the airwaves. It could be the sounds from the days spent at the coast as a kid when the day felt like it would never end. Or it might be a trip to a seabird colony clinging to the cliffs and creating an intense wall of sound.

These memories of days at the seaside as children are part of our national DNA. Millions of Brits head to the coast every year. And there is a rich social history of the connections between the big cities and the nearest stretch of coastline.

Last weekend I paid a trip to the seaside, to Brighton to take part in a literary event called Sea Changers. What struck me from the moment I arrived was how hard it was to get around in my wheelchair.

As a nation shaped by the coast and drawn to the sea the news, announced by the deputy prime minister Nick Clegg, that a coastal footpath around the shores of England will be completed ten years early by 2020 represents one great big stride to opening up access to a remarkable coastline.

The Sand. WARNING. This delicious looking crumbly stuff does not taste like biscuit. I repeat it does not taste like biscuit. It took me at least ten mouthfuls to work this out but I can now confirm, without a doubt, that sand is definitely not biscuit-flavoured.

I've added a can of tuna fish in this easy recipe because I know that foraging enough razor clams to lunch upon, is a matter of experience. If you find a quantity to dine royalty, forget the tin of tuna in this Seashore Salad. When foraging wild ingredients, take enough for your own need and no more.

Margate has been undergoing a transformation in recent years from a drab seaside resort to a bustling art and food destination. The town has had artistic connections since landscape painter J.M.W.

Millions of us spend a fair amount of time daydreaming about being at the coast. Living by the sea with those views into what appears to be infinity and the dreamy sunrises and sunsets has enchanted generations. And yet that sense of things always being the same at the seaside, a constant in a turning world, seems to be changing.

It felt like a hundred years of news coverage. As the commentary and the endless, pointless interviews grew ever more banal, I began to hope for a live feed to the Royal Nursery, where the paint might still be drying on the walls.

From my favourite clifftop vantage point, I can see the peninsula of what is finally beginning to feel like my home-town. It's an ever-changing view, but today it's calm: I can see the snow-topped haziness of Islay in the distance, far beyond.
