  1. You do not have to explain what you do for the town its there in black&white and sometimes poor quality colour but you will get better stick at it

  2. Thanks from the young people of Beverley for posting such good publicity about all the great work they do in the community and not focussing on all the negative news as many others do. Building community together, not knocking it down …. More great stories coming your way 🙂

  3. Since discovering this website I now turn to it for news of what is happening in Beverley. What I love about it is that it is a local website full of news and information provided by the people of Beverley.

    Keep up the good work Paul, maybe I could use this website to start a campaign to get a pedestrian crossing on the junction of Wylies Road and Manor Road. Which is an accident waiting to happen.

  4. Chris – hit me up lets take a look. Manor Road is as you say ‘an accident waiting to happen’

    be more then happy to see how things can be resolved 🙂

  5. I think you do a fantastic job – I beg to differ with the Chairman I was allowed to use a colour photo of my son (Beverley sportman)for his 21st birthday and it was excellent quality. I am a huge fan of HU17 the variety of photos is amazing I never tire of browsing. Many congratulations and a huge thanks for your work
