Elizabeth (Liz) Hallett was born and grew up in Beverley.
For almost 30 years she was one of the local District Nursing Sisters. When she was 7 years of age and a brownie, she had her first taste of fundraising when her dad made her a box to go on the back of her bicycle and she wrote letters asking people to donate paperback books for the Blue Peter RNLI inshore lifeboat appeal.

In the 1800s there was an explosion of interest in natural history. Clergymen were particularly enthusiastic in embracing the subject, leading to the name parson-naturalist.
The new exhibition, which is now open at the Treasure House in Beverley, ‘Birds, Books and Belfries,’ explores the remarkable life and work of parson-naturalist Reverend Francis Orpen Morris (1810 – 1893) who studied nature, wrote books and campaigned for wildlife, all combined with his role as vicar of Nafferton and later Nunburnholme.
The visitors to Beaver park were Pontefract RUFC, flying high in the Yorkshire One table, and needing just one more victory to secure promotion their spirits were raised further upon arrival when they realised it was Ladies Day at Beverley RUFC.
The local derby trip to Bridlington for the Beavers was always going to be a tough challenge. The previous week Brid came away with an away win at top of the table Old Crossleyans and look to have secured the fourth spot in the league, which is the last promotion spot.
The weather was good for an open game of rugby, and in patches, Beverley’s backs looked impressive, unfortunately, the power of the imported front row and backline of the forward pack was too much, and Bridlington was deserved winners by the end of the afternoon scoring 46 points to Beverley’s 15.
