BEVERLEY High School students and staff are harnessing the power of plants both inside and outside of the classroom The school’s gardening club has been planting a bee friendly garden, with the support of local garden centre Coletta & Tyson and hope to see an increase in bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

They are also trialling the effects of houseplants in a classroom environment to monitor the effects on staff and students’ mental health and concentration levels. 

MARKED and unmarked police motorcycle patrols will be out in force on local roads over the weekend in a bid to combat motorcyclists and other drivers from driving dangerously or at excessive speeds. Officers, in partnership with Safer Roads Humber, use vehicles fitted with state-of-the-art speed detection and recording equipment. 

Inspector John Rickells told us: “We are concerned about the number of motorcyclists and other drivers speeding on our rural roads, many travelling well over 100mph. Already this week we have seen three serious collisions where riders and drivers have sustained serious injuries, and we just want to try and prevent this from happening.”

He continued: “When speaking to motorcyclists we always encourage riders to consider attending a BikeSafe workshop or doing an advanced riding course which aims to increase skills and overall awareness.”

A JOINT Fire and Police careers roadshow will visit Beverley Leisure Centre next Thursday at 2pm.
