A new app has been launched in East Yorkshire to help local people cope with the physical and mental strains of having a new baby. The ‘DadPad’ app has been launched by the local Health and Care Partnership. Officials told Beverley FM that although it’s aimed at dads-to-be it will crucially provide guidance on how to support and seek help, when needed, for their partners and themselves as they adjust to their new roles. As well as details on local support groups and service providers, it aims to provide new fathers with guidance on how to develop the mindset, confidence and practical skills needed to meet their babies’ physical and emotional needs. The app is available to downloaded from the App Store and Google Play.

A new exhibition is shedding light on the fact that Beverley was at the centre of the European art world in the 1960s and early ’70s. Crossing Borders from the Danube to the Humber: Alfred Gruber and Friends is at Beverley Art Gallery. Exhibition curator Gerardine Mulcahy-Parker told us that the range and quality of art works on display is astonishing. She added that it was exciting to discover the strong connections between leading European artists and the picturesque market town and to see how language, social and cultural divides were ignored, as these artists ‘crossed borders’, to come together through a shared love of art. Entry to the exhibition is free and there is no need to book in advance.
