Residents in the Beverley area with a keen eye for photography are being invited to capture an award-winning image of the Humber Bridge.
The #YourBridge project, run in association with Hilton Photographic, Hull, and London Camera Exchange, Lincoln High Street, is running throughout 2018, is open to photographers of all abilities, and each month features different theme.
East Riding residents are being given the chance to have their say on plans to improve access to GP services in the region by making more appointments available outside of normal GP practice opening hours.
NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is looking to use funding from NHS England to offer additional appointments from 2019 and is running a short survey to help shape what this may look like.
The housing market for the Beverley area is set for another tough year as economic uncertainties continue to limit any price rises. Despite many government-led initiatives such as the removal of stamp duty, it seems that increased living costs and fears over a rise in interest rates will put many people off buying a new home in 2018.
Last year saw both the number of homes sold and their prices decreasing across the whole of the HU17 area. Compared to a relative high point in 2014, the number of home sales in the HU17 region was at its lowest point since 2009. And when coupled with a sudden drop in prices compared to 2016, it seems that the market is set for a tough year.
Beverley and Holderness MP, Graham Stuart, has given his strong backing to Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme and has urged residents to nominate local projects that can benefit from their plastic bag charges fund.
