The Beverley Town Council held their annual general meeting at the Beverley Memorial Hall yesterday evening. Residents within the parish were invited to attend and raise their concerns and give feedback on topics related to Beverley and the Town Council.
As expected the Beverley Memorial Hall and its proposed redevelopment and more importantly it’s financing was a hot topic. There clearly no quick fix or solution that will please everyone. One person suggested each hold should pay a small one off premium to get the finance needed as apposed to borrowing large sums on money.
Pat Nolan raised concerns over the market, Mr Nolan expressed concerns that one of Beverley’s biggest assets was not publicised enough to would be visitors. Mr Nolan also emphasised the fact Beverley is, first and foremost a ‘Historic Market Town’.
Questions were also raised regarding the expenditure on Festivals organised by Beverley Town Council. Beverley has a wide range of festivals through out the year including The Food Festival. These events attract vast amounts of people into the town while boosting the local economy though needs to be paid for.
What this meeting lacked was wider range of people of different ages. There seems to be a misunderstanding of local councils as a whole and their importance and what they actually do for a community.
If anything can be learnt from last night it is that younger people in Beverley need to stand up and be counted and be more involved in shaping the future of this town.
