BEVERLEY town centre Christmas Lights switch-on, organised by Beverley Lions, will take place this Sunday afternoon at the Market Cross. The event gets underway around 4pm, with pupils from St Mary’s School singing carols. This will be followed by a short service and then the countdown to the actual lights being switched-on about 4.30pm.

VINTAGE clothing brand Poorboy Boutique has opened a new pop-up store at the Flemingate Centre with pre-loved designer brands and unique pieces of fashion which have been re-worked and created by Poorboy. David Gibb, co-owner of sister brand Bag It Vintage Clothing, said: “Poorboy has gone from strength to strength since it first opened in Hull almost a decade ago. We’re at the heart of the Humber Street shopping scene and now we’ve brought our designer vintage labels to Beverley.”
