A NEW Beverley charity is holding a launch event in Molescroft on Saturday as a way of introducing itself to the wider community. The Beverley Area Community Trust aims to support local groups and organisations with small grants and has issued an open invitation for people to meet its trustees at a coffee afternoon to be held in Molescroft Pavilion from 12 noon to 2pm.

The Trust raises its money by recycling clothe and has already placed a number of clothing banks across the area, including Woodmansey and Molescroft. A spokesperson told us: “The Trust firmly believes that supporting these local institutions is fundamental towards reinforcing the bonds of community – that is the Trust’s primary objective.”

AFTER a three year “Covid Break” the Cherry Burton Village Show is being re-launched on Saturday July 22. And whilst retaining its traditional roots, the show – now in its 78th year – has been updated to keep pace with current trends. As well as the numerous ‘produce’, ‘’baking’ and ‘crafts’ entries all vying for the ‘Best in Show’ awards there are now Yoga Sessions, live bands and a Pimm’s Bar. 

It’s also the launch date for the Cherry Burton Scarecrow Festival – maps and information can be obtained at the show.

BEVERLEY’S Armstrong Centre is acting as a collection point for donations for families who were evacuated after the dam explosion and flooding in Ukraine. The appeal is for clothes (adults and children), shoes, sanitary and hygiene products, nappies, bed linen and pet food.  The lorry with all donations will leave from Hull on 19th, so the deadline for donations is June 17.  The Armstrong Centre is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9:30 am til 2 pm.
