A campaign has been launched to help East Yorkshire people recover from the pandemic and stay as healthy as possible. East Riding Council officials told Beverley FM they want to extend an arm of support for those dealing with the brutal realities of the Covid crisis on business and employment. In addition to economic funding, there’s help to cope with stress and finding ways to improve mental and physical health. Read the full story and links to support here.

A new business enterprise centre will bring a welcome jobs boost to Beverley when it’s completed early next year. 30 office and industrial units for new and growing businesses will be housed in a state-of-the-art environmentally friendly building in Grovehill Road. The investment of nearly £5-million is coming from a range of local, national and European sources. We’ve been told that space in the new centre is already being snapped up by local entrepreneurs. You can hear more about the development in tomorrow’s Morning Mix between 10am and Noon. More details here.

As the chances of a holiday abroad look less likely, East Riding tourism chiefs are encouraging staycation visitors to our area to boost the hospitality economy with overnight stays.  They said they want more people to discover our hidden gems with promotions that aim to put East Yorkshire firmly on the tourism map.
