East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s countryside access team has launched its Countryside Events 2017 programme.
From rambles and themed walks (including photography, navigation, geocaching and orienteering) to wildlife watching events; from Kids Go Wild events to workshops, conservation days and natural craft workshops – the programme includes something for everybody with an interest in the outdoors.
New activity sessions aimed at helping people with Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease to get mobile and meet others living with the same long term conditions are being launched in the East Riding.
The weekly ‘Grin and Tonic’ activity sessions will start at East Riding Leisure Beverley from Wednesday 18 January, 1-2pm and at East Riding Leisure Haltemprice, from Friday 20 January, 11am-12noon.
Residents visiting registration and celebratory services, entertainment venues, adult learning centres and Bevelrey Leisure Centre that are run by East Riding of Yorkshire Council will now be able to stay connected as free Wi-Fi goes live.
The works represent an important investment by the authority and allow residents to access services and transact with the council digitally.
