A new display by the Skidby Mill volunteer team has just opened. ‘Historic hospitals: care in the East Riding before the Health Service’ examines the beginnings of organised public health provision in the region in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Some of the places covered in the exhibition are Castle Hill hospital, Cottingham; the Lloyd cottage hospital in Bridlington; and Withernsea convalescent home.
There are plenty of pranks and a ton of fun at East Riding Libraries this summer – it’s Mischief Makers, the Summer Reading Challenge 2018, in association with the Reading Agency!
The Summer Reading Challenge will be a chance to read library books over the summer holidays, join in with fun themed weekly activity sessions, collect special stickers and explore the map of Beanotown to find clues, but– Dennis the Menace is usually up to all kinds of mischief. He’ll make sure some of those stickers are extra stinky!
Local MP Graham Stuart has pledged more action to tackle hare coursing in rural areas of Beverley and Holderness after it was revealed that Humberside Police spent 1200 hours combatting the crime in the past year.

The NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (ERYCCG) has launched a survey to seek local views on ways to better support people with conditions affecting bones, ligaments, muscles and joints (for example back pain, shoulder and knee problems or muscular injuries).
In particular, the CCG wants to understand how the community musculoskeletal (MSK) service is used, how easy it is to access and how satisfied people are.
Beverley ARLC negotiated a potentially tricky trip up the A1 to maintain their 100% record as they beat Gateshead Storm in the National Conference League.
As has been the case on a number of occasions this season it was the first half performance which set them up for victory. Playing down the slope in the first half, the visitor’s pace caused countless problems for the opposition.
There are many jobs in the world that we tend to take for granted. The people in those jobs work tirelessly in the background, often not getting the thanks that they deserve – sometimes even receiving abuse instead.
It could be said that the men and women of the nursing profession perform such a job. Without them, our hospitals and GP surgeries could not function, but we rarely acknowledge this, nor do the nurses themselves ask us to do so.
