Beverley Library and four others in the East Riding are to become the first in the country to offer a free health and wellbeing service. Called Boditrax, it uses a medically-approved body analysing machine to measure such things as weight, body mass index, fat percentage and muscle and bone density. It then uses the information to create personal profiles to help manage weight loss, increase energy or fitness levels, boost wellbeing and aid professional training.

A free event will be held at Beverley Library on Monday March 14, from 10am – 1pm and is open to anyone to find out how the service works, and the benefits of signing up for a consultation.

Preference is given to projects within the proximity of the wind farm, decided on by a panel made up of representatives from Tickton, Routh and Leven Parish Councils, East Riding Council and East Riding Voluntary Action Services. The deadline for applications is April 14.

And finally, Humberside Police are warning about a spate of burglary-related car thefts in the East Riding. In many cases the break-ins are happening between midnight and 4am and the only thing stolen from inside the property are the car keys, which are then used to steal the vehicles.
