East Riding Council has hit back at residents who’ve branded the new passes needed to access their recycling centres from Friday as ‘rubbish’. Officials have told Beverley FM that it will make the system fairer – to make sure the 10 sites across the county are only being used by East Riding residents. If a pass isn’t displayed in a vehicle, the driver will be questioned by a site attendant and could be turned away. Councillor Chris Matthews, the council’s portfolio holder for environment and climate change, said that the new system will make sure residents are getting full use of the waste and recycling facilities and encourages them to keep hold of their passes. Alternatively, a driving licence, bank statement, utility or council tax bill, showing the holders valid address, will be acceptable. For more information visit

Cherry Burton Arts are set to ‘go live’ again with musical events following the lifting of pandemic restrictions. Organiser Martin Peirson told us that they’re taking all necessary safety precautions, which will allow live music to happen in the Village Hall once again, following months of shutdown. The opening show at the end of October will be the Creedence Collection.  Ticket details here.

It’s the last week of the ‘Brick Wonders’ exhibition at Beverley Art Gallery. It’s proved incredibly popular, attracting thousands of visitors to see over 40 amazing sights from around the world, crafted out of half a million LEGO® bricks. Models include the seven wonders of the ancient world, plus modern, natural, and historic structures. The centrepiece is a 60 square foot installation of the Great Barrier Reef, complete with underwater lighting and sound effects. Curator Helena Cox told us she’s been blown away by the popularity of this exhibition since it opened in July.  Tickets are free but need to be booked in advance. Full details here
