The new leader of East Riding Council has endorsed a green business building under construction at a special ‘steel signing’ ceremony on site at Grovehill Road. Councillor Jonathan Owen welcomed the job creation potential of the Beverley Enterprise Centre. The first two stories are well advanced and the project is on track to be completed early next year. The £4.8 million development will provide serviced accommodation for 30 small businesses with office and workshop units. Officials told Beverley FM that it’s hoped the building will stimulate further development to benefit the local economy into the future. More background on the building here.

A local hospital charity is inviting East Riding residents to make space in their diaries to be part of a fund-raising tea break on the 73rd anniversary of the NHS. WISHH, the official charity of Castle Hill Hospital and Hull Royal Infirmary wants as many people as possible to hold or participate in the nation’s largest tea break on 5th July. Organisers told us that funds raised from the NHS Big Tea will be used to improve local staff, volunteer and patient facilities, in what has been one of the most challenging years in the history of the service. Full details and links here.

A new exhibition has opened at St Mary’s Church in Beverley this week. It explores the captivating cast of Narnia characters depicted in 14 new carvings on the outside of the building. Narnia Comes to St Mary’s showcases the amazing artistry behind the creation of these sculptures. The exhibition will be on display in the South Transept until the end of August 2021.
