More details have been released about the Bridlington Weekend of Motoring 2018, to be held on Saturday and Sunday 8 and 9 September, organised by Tour Britannia on behalf of East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Once again, the weekend will feature a wide range of events to appeal to anybody with an interest in any aspect of motoring.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has received a confirmed National Lottery grant of £724,000 towards a £968,869 scheme to deliver The Humber Bridge Country Park Experience.
Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the project aims to restore Hessle Whiting Mill – adding an additional floor and interpretation – deliver a full activity programme, employ a heritage education officer, improve the existing stepped access and undertake improvement works to underpasses and pathways.
This weekend will see an international volleyball festival in Bridlington, with fun and excitement for all the family.
Bridlington will be the UK’s sole host for the 2018 CEV (Confederation of European Volleyball) Beach Volleyball Festival, which will run alongside the UK Pro Beach Volleyball Tour (UKBT) Event on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 August at Bridlington South Cliff Beach (below Park & Ride).
Seabirds breeding along the Yorkshire coast will be afforded additional protection, following the expected designation of a new Marine Protected Area (MPA) around Flamborough and Filey.
The Flamborough and Filey Coast Special Protection Area (SPA) will build on existing designations along this internationally-important stretch of coastline to ensure further protection for the UK’s largest mainland seabird colony, both on the cliffs and within inshore waters.
Despite the current heatwave, there’s an early forecast this Christmas for a Touch of Frost.
John Lyons who appeared as Detective Sergeant George Toolan in the long running popular ITV series A Touch of Frost will be returning to Bridlington Spa for this year’s spectacular production of the pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk; starring as the King.
The manager of an East Yorkshire cycling team is embarking on a remarkable challenge to raise money for a Barton man whose treatment for a rare and aggressive cancer is not yet available in the UK.
On 13th August, Rich Baldwin, who manages the Wold Top Actif racing team, will embark on a challenge that will see him scale the equivalent of Mt. Everest in a cycling phenomenon known as ‘Everesting’.
