BEVERLEY Town Council is consulting the public over plans to introduce new road signs at the entrance to the town. The council is currently working with students at East Riding College on design proposals that reflect the heritage of the town. 

The initial concept shows key locations as different fragments of a stained-glass window. They are Beverley Minster, Beverley Beck, The Westwood and Black Mill, the Racecourse, Saturday Market, the Market Cross, North Bar and East Riding College and Flemingate.  

A council spokesperson told us: “When the council resolved to create entry signs to help promote the town, councillors were unanimous in wanting a new and innovative design, which still reflected the heritage of the town.

 “We thought this would be an excellent real-life project for students to be involved with. Young people are the future of our town and as we want these new entry signs to be around for many years, we thought it was important for them to be involved.  We have been working with two in particular, Ashley and Ellis, who have come up with a wonderful concept that is unique, modern and also respectful of Beverley’s heritage.”

A mock-up of the design (pictured) has already been produced and the council now wants to hear your views via a survey which can be accessed here

EAST RIDING Council’s Cabinet has approved support totalling £1.6 million to continue free school meals for the 8,000 eligible children across the county during this year’s school holidays. Other schemes to support residents with the cost-of-living crisis include support for rural households on oil power, support for new white household goods for those struggling to replace, increased debt advice, and support for registered carers.

THE BEVERLEY campus of East Riding College hosts a “Get Into Teaching” event next Wednesday evening. It will be an opportunity for people to learn about the wide range of courses available to enable them to move into teaching. More information here
