Redcar is preparing to spend Christmas without the fire of a blast furnace to warm its economy after the closure of SSI.
But a rallying call has gone out from local politicians, campaigners and redundant steel workers as the community vows to fight on.
Gregg Easteal reports:
Members of the European Parliament will vote on recommendations today (December 16) to push governments to do more to support the steel industry.
It comes after the closure of SSI in Redcar where more than two thousand jobs were lost.
The parliament wants member states to make better use of the available emergency funds to protect jobs.
It's also urging countries to protect companies by imposing the same taxes on imported steel from outside Europe.

9-year-old Ben Hebden from Marske felt so sorry for the children of Redcar steel workers who've lost their jobs, he's organised a special Christmas party for them.
In September, Redcar was rocked by the closure of its historic steelworks.
2,200 workers lost their jobs - many hundreds more in the supply chain.
A cry for help went out from the town from families facing a bleak search for jobs - and with Christmas only weeks away.
That inspired 9-year-old Ben Hebden, who's from Marske, to arrange a Christmas party for workers' children this afternoon (December 14).
Anywhere between 210-220 children are expected.
There are more than 125 wrapped Christmas presents, lucky dips, stockings and a DJ.
