BEVERLEY councillors will be recommended to approve grants totalling £7,054.50 to six local organisations when it meets next Monday. The full council meeting, to be held at East Riding College, will hear that members of the Grants Committee recommended the following amounts: £2,000 to Beverley Civic Society towards the cost of producing a brochure for this year’s Heritage Open days and £2,000 to East Riding Concert Orchestra to help with the cost of three concerts in St Mary’s Church.

The other recommended grants are: £1,588 to East Yorkshire Food Bank; £495 to the Military Assistance Social Hub towards the cost of roof-top tours of The Minster for Forces’ veterans and their families; £512.50 to Beverley Male Voice Choir and £459 to the Beverley Wombles Group to support their litter-picking activities.

BEVERLEY Building Society says its Charity of the Year, the Cherry Tree Community Centre, will benefit to the tune of £9,250 thanks to the society’s fund-raising efforts during 2022.

ELECTRIC vehicle charging points look set to be installed on North Bar Without, near Coombs Yard, under plans to expand East Riding Council’s network for EV vehicles. There would be two twin socket chargers covering four parking spaces. Beverley Town Council have been asked for their comments on the proposals.
