Police currently investigating a reported attack on a woman while she was withdrawing money from an ATM outside a supermarket on Grovehill Road, Beverley, have issued a new appeal for witnesses. They told Beverley FM the incident happened on Monday, June 28, and say the victim was approached from behind by two woman. As a result she sustained facial injuries and needed medical treatment. Officers told us: “We are now appealing for anyone with information, or anyone who was in the area at the time, who has not yet spoken with us, to contact us on 101, quoting crime reference 16/66011/21

A pupil at Leconfield Primary School has won a poster competition launched by Beverley’s Tesco store to raise awareness of littering and fly-tipping. Local schools were invited to design posters for display in store and more than 200 were submitted. Sophia Kennedy’s winning design featured illustrations of planet Earth, complete with a recyclable plastic bottle alongside a Bag for Life. Sophia won £250 for her school as well as £50 to spend on herself in store. Monica Usher, from St. Nicholas’ Primary, finished second, winning £40 for herself and £150 for her school, while Bronte Gardner, of Keldmarsh Primary, came third, winning £30 and £100 for the school.

And finally, there are hopes the Ferguson Fawsitt Arms could reopen after property agents began advertising the lease to operate the pub as a going concern. The Walkington venue closed last October as a result of losses sustained during the pandemic.
