PEOPLE are being encouraged to get out and about on a series of “wellbeing walks” to support their general health and wellbeing, meet new people and enjoy the summer weather. They’re being organised by the Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust in conjunction with the mental health support group Mental Health Mates. 

Each walk will be approximately 3 – 5km and are designed for people to walk at their own pace. They start from different locations throughout the East Riding, with one in Beverley on Monday June 26. This will start from the Foresters Arms on Beckside at 1pm for a walk along the Beck. To take part just turn up but more information is available by emailing or calling 0800 9177752.

TWO YOUNG MEN whose bodies were recovered from a lake at a nature reserve at High Eske, near Tickton, on Wednesday May 24 have been named as Elvicia Neels, 19, and Muhammed Batchilly, 21. An inquest into the men’s deaths was opened and adjourned yesterday. A full hearing will be held at a later date.

TWELVE THOUSAND thought-provoking beer mats aimed at young drivers are being distributed to 60 pubs across East Yorkshire. It’s the idea of East Yorkshire Council’s road safety team, with each mat bearing questions including “Am I a good driver?” or “Am I a good passenger?” The council says they are designed to provoke conversation and debates and challenge young drivers’ perceptions of their own behaviour.
