Beverley Library and Art Gallery as it was more than a century ago has been built using LEGO Bricks to complement the “Brick Wonders” exhibition in the town’s art gallery and is on display in Beverley Library until Saturday,  October 2. The amazing construction took more than nine hours to complete and was inspired by a postcard in the East Riding Archives, showing the building in 1910, before the reference library and additional first floor gallery were added. Treasure House education officer, Sarah Hammond, told Beverley FM : “We hope this piece may inspire the public to have a go at making something – perhaps a little less ambitious – to enter in the “Brick Wonders of the East Riding” competition. A fascinating time-lapse video of the model being built can be viewed by visiting www.eastridingmuseums.co.uk/brick-wonders.

Police have renewed their appeal for information following the theft of a distinctive, specialist cargo bike from Saturday Market, Beverley, last week. They revealed yesterday that a man had been arrested in connection with the theft but was subsequently released. It’s believed the bike may have been taken to the Driffield area.

And finally, more than 100 gins from around the world will feature at this year’s Beverley Gin Festival, being held in Beverley Minster next month. They include some from Beverley distillery Northern Fox. [More information here]
