East Riding Libraries’ popular virtual book club, Face in a Book Club, has added many new titles.
In honour of the VE Day 75th anniversary, it will offer ‘The Tattooist of Auschwitz’ by Heather Morris, the story of how Slovakian Jew Lale Sokolov fell in love with a girl he was tattooing at a concentration camp.
Beverley Town Council had big plans to commemorate this special 75th anniversary of VE Day along with many other organisations, groups and churches within the town. Due to the present pandemic of Coronavirus, all these activities had to be cancelled.
However, this does not stop them from commemorating and celebrating this special occasion in our own homes following the government regulations ‘Stay at Home – Protect the NHS – Save Lives’.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is distributing grants from its VE Day Community Fund to help commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
The rural team within the council’s planning department has supported projects proposed by 14 parish councils from the fund and the funding will allow the projects to take place in due course after COVID-19 restrictions are eased.
Friends, family and colleagues have paid tribute to a father and daughter who had a great influence on public, business and charity communities across Hull and East Yorkshire but who lost their lives to Covid-19 within days of each other.
David Whincup and Joanne Rennison were both directors of Educare Nursery in Beverley and were widely known for their activities in many other sectors.
To help with the increased demand due to coronavirus (COVID-19), GP practices, pharmacies and Urgent Treatment Centres (UTC) across Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire will remain open on the bank holiday Friday, 8 May 2020.
Councillors from Beverley Town Council are delivering life-saving, PPE face shields to key workers in the care home sector in Beverley.
The face shields have been designed by the engineering department at Hull University, who have been working round the clock with NHS consultants and industrial partners to create a state of the art face shield to protect health workers against the Covid 19 virus.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has relaunched its Love Your High Street fund, to help more businesses across the area in these challenging times.
It has been expanded to cover the whole of the East Riding area but is still predominantly aimed at the ‘high street’ – including villages and rural businesses which offer a service to their local community.
For those seeking inspiration in this period of lockdown, the East Riding Festival of Words has launched its Poetry Competition for 2020.
The competition will reach its climax with an event at North Bridlington Library on Saturday, 28 January, 2021, at 11am, to celebrate the winning poets, hear from the judges, and listen to the winning poems.
