The resurgence of vinyl amongst the music-buying public has contributed to a Beverley business expanding into Hull. Bug Vinyl, an independent record store which opened in Ladygate five years ago, will tomorrow open a second branch in the new House of Hammonds Food Hall in Hull. Owner Neil Harris said: “When we first opened our mission was to sell new vinyl and only new vinyl. We do one thing and would like to think we do it extremely well, which continues to receive a strong response from our customers.” Latest figures show 4.8 million vinyl records were sold in the UK last year, a 10 per cent increase from the previous year and the highest number for 30 years. Meanwhile, CD sales fell by almost a third.

Following the introduction of compulsory face mask-wearing in shops and other indoor settings, Humberside Police say they are supporting a national #shopkind campaign to raise awareness of and to tackle violence and abuse against shop workers. Superintendent Paul French told Beverley FM: Violence and abuse against shop workers is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our local communities.”

And finally, Beverley Rotary Club will be assisting Santa’s pre-Christmas sleigh tour of Beverley, starting with a visit to Morrison’s on Friday December 10th from 6 – 8pm. He will also be joining the town’s Festival of Christmas on Sunday the 12th, followed by a week-long tour of the area, starting in Tickton on the 13th.
