Awards that reward the region’s best, brightest, most successful and innovative tourism businesses will return in 2022 and will continue to be a route to national recognition. The 2022 Remarkable East Yorkshire Tourism Awards, the REYTAs, organised by Visit Hull and East Yorkshire will culminate in an awards event next March. Last year’s event had to be held online because of the pandemic and this year’s was cancelled altogether. Now in their 12th year, the REYTAs will be looking for the region’s best restaurant and pub, best B&B and hotel and honouring remarkable visitor attractions and tourism events. In total there are 15 categories.

East Riding Council is to put a £6.6m programme to buy a new vehicle fleet on hold to look at options for electric ones, particularly HGVs and bin lorries. Environment portfolio holder Cllr Chris Matthews said the council needed to do more to show its commitment to tackling climate change. He added that despite officers saying heavy electric vehicle prices were extortionate, lower fuel and maintenance costs could save money in the long run.

And finally, Beverley Minster will once again be a riot of colour next month when its popular Christmas Tree Festival returns from Friday December 3 to the 12.
