East Yorkshire property developer Wayne Low, of Molescroft, has been fined £32,000 and ordered to pay £21,968 costs after appearing at Hull Crown Court charged with demolishing The Traveller’s Rest pub in Long Riston. He admitted failing to obtain planning permission and a company of which he is a sole director, AGML (UK) Ltd, also admitted a similar offence but no separate penalty was imposed on it. 

Although it was not a listed building, the pub was within a conservation area and the court was told that while demolition was ongoing, Mr Low was warned by East Riding of Yorkshire Council that he was committing an offence and that he should stop the work. Subsequently the council took enforcement action, requiring Mr Low to rebuild the pub.

The Beverley branch of the Royal British Legion has announced arrangements for its Remembrance Day parade and service on Sunday November 14. The band, regular Army, members of the Royal British Legion and any retired veterans are invited to meet in Cross Street, opposite County Hall, at 10am before the parade moves off at 10.25 via Toll Gavel, Saturday Market and Hengate, arriving at Memorial Gardens in time for the service to begin at 10.50.

And finally, the East Riding Culture Train makes its final stop of the year when it pulls into Beverley on Saturday, November 27, for a free concert in St Mary’s Church. The line-up includes The Quicksilver Kings and Ruth Scott & James Wood of the Late Night Marauders.
