East Riding Archives has created a new, free app that turns smartphones or tablets into virtual ‘time machines’.
‘What Was Here?’ uses historical photos from the archives, plotted onto a Google Maps base map, to show users literally ‘what was here’ at their location and elsewhere across the East Yorkshire region.
The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition will be back for a third year in the Treasure House from Saturday, 22 June to Saturday, 14 September, accompanied by an exciting programme of events throughout.
On loan from the Natural History Museum in London, the exhibition will feature 100 awe-inspiring images, from fascinating animal behaviour to breath-taking wild landscapes.
Community groups across the East Riding are being invited to apply for grants to go towards projects that make their environment a better place to be.
The grants are being made available by East Riding of Yorkshire Council as part of the Government’s Year of Green Action (YoGA) which was launched earlier this year to raise awareness of, and participation in, an action that is beneficial to the environment.
The East Yorkshire based Ashcourt Racing squad enjoyed a quite momentous, tumultuous first TT campaign, which saw Lee Johnston finally join the TT winners circle.
Consistently near the sharp end of the Supersport timesheets during practice week, Johnston following a solid top 15 placing in the RST Superbike race, produced a quite brilliant display aboard the Ashcourt Yamaha to take the spoils in the opening Monster Energy Supersport encounter.
