East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s countryside access team has launched its Countryside Events 2018 programme that includes walks starting in Beverley.
From rambles and themed walks (including photography, navigation, bushcraft, 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. The programme also links to the council’s Active Coast initiative this year.
Lit Up Festival is thrilled to present a newly commissioned work by one of the UK’s most performed playwrights, John Godber, which will tour East Riding Libraries at the end of this month, as part of the Out of this Word programme.
John has worked alongside a trio of emerging playwrights from The Writing Squad: Georgia Affonso; Ruby Lawrence and Lydia Marchant, to re-imagine East Riding histories. The piece is entitled HERE and NOW and it will see three trainee librarians battling with books, boilers and bad parking as they uncover amazing stories!
Adoption staff from East Riding of Yorkshire Council are holding a series of information sessions to encourage more people to consider adopting a child.
As part of National Adoption Week (16 to 22 October), staff will be at venues in Beverley, Market Weighton and Haltemprice to talk to people who may be considering adoption, to hand out leaflets and to answer any questions they may have.
As part of the council’s programme of highway maintenance works, essential carriageway improvement works along the C8 road between North Cave and Market Weighton will begin on Monday, 17 July, 2017, and will take approximately 20 weeks to complete.
The road will be closed 24 hours a day for the full duration of the scheme, because of the nature of the work involved, and to allow a safe working environment for the workforce. The works will be carried out by C R Reynolds Ltd. on behalf of the council.
