The hospitality, tourism and culture sectors in East Yorkshire are welcoming customers back indoors from today after months of restrictions. Pubs, cafes and restaurants can host people inside as the latest easing of restrictions is permitted. It’s thought that only a third nationally re-opened after the first lockdown. Beverley Tourist Information Centre also re-opens, on the first floor of the Treasure House. 

The re-opening of St Mary’s Church in Beverley tomorrow sees the start of a nationwide musical tour. Pianist Libby Burgess will play Bach’s 48 – the Well Tempered Clavier –  in each of England’s 48 counties this year, raising money for charity. Libby’s at St Mary’s at lunchtime until Saturday.

Repairs are underway from today on Weel Bridge on Grovehill Road, Beverley, meaning a five-day closure. The bridge will remain open for pedestrians and cyclists. Motorists can follow a diversion to the tip on Weel Road, via Tickton. 

East Yorkshire’s newest tourist attraction opens its doors tomorrow. Lottery money helped fund the restoration of the Hessle Whiting Mill on the Foreshore and Beverley actor Gordon Meredith stars in a number of videos. Visit on Tuesday or Friday.
