Beverley Town Council plans a series of events on Bank Holiday Friday, June 3, to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Events will take place throughout the day at locations throughout the town, including Saturday Market, Wednesday Market, Flemingate and the area around North Bar.

Celebrations will begin from 10am with various orchestras and choirs throughout the day in Saturday Market until 8pm. Beverley’s Mayor will officially open proceedings at 11.15am, the time The Queen’s Coronation began 70 years ago.

Street artists and dancers will perform a Jubilee Pageant in Wednesday Market, there will be more live music from a stage at Flemingate while a street tea party will take place at North Bar.

Beverley MP Graham Stuart will meet representatives of Network Rail and Northern Rail and the chairman and members of Beverley Civic Society this Friday morning to discuss Network Rail’s plans for the repairs to the pedestrian bridge at Beverley railway station.

As previously reported by Beverley FM, the Civic Society has concerns about the proposals for the Grade 2 listed bridge, which includes removing the wooden canopy and not replacing it. Mr Stuart told Beverley FM: “Our footbridge is iconic, and I understand may be unique across the rail network.  It has been a landmark in Beverley for well over 100 years.” 

And finally, Molescroft Parish Council have been awarded £20,600 by East Riding Council as part of Commuted Sums from local housing developments. It will be used to build a new petanque playing area and extend the existing one at Molescroft Pavilion. Hessle Town Council will also contribute another £2,000 towards the project.

Molescroft Petanque Club secretary Suham Sidani told us: “With this expansion, the facility will be large enough to host national events and will allow us to expand the club to offer junior training sessions and more community sessions.”
