Beverley estate agents Woolley & Parks are celebrating after being named best in the country in the small agency category of major national awards. Woolley & Parks, based in Railway Street and with a second office in Driffield,  triumphed in the Best Estate Agent Guide Awards unveiled in London. More than 15,000 agencies were included in the assessment, which is conducted by Property Academy, supported by the UK’s leading property portal, Rightmove. Each office is scored against a unique set of criteria looking at property marketing, customer service and results. Mark Woolley, Joint Managing Director of Woolley & Parks, told Beverley FM: “These awards follow a rigorous and independent assessment and we are thrilled to have been recognised as best in class in the whole country”.

Beverley’s East Riding Theatre, which will celebrate its eighth birthday in 2022 and remains the area’s only producing theatre, is looking to recruit trustees to its governing Board. Trustees, who also sit on the Board as a  director, work with the Artistic Director and Theatre Manager to set the strategic direction of the theatre in terms of artistic, financial and operational planning.
