BEVERLEY Town Council and Beverley Minster are working in partnership to organise an afternoon of community entertainment for the Coronation of King Charles III. Taking place on Bank Holiday Monday, May 8, the event will be an opportunity for community groups to promote their activities and encourage new volunteers, all within the spirit of the national “Big Help Out” initiative being led by His Majesty.  

There will also be performances by a range of local music groups, refreshments and the opportunity to bring and enjoy a picnic. Starting at 12 noon and running until 5pm, everything will take place at Beverley Minster, with the grounds surrounding the church acting as a picnic venue for the day.  Music will take place inside the Minster and a range of voluntary groups will have stalls.

A council spokesperson told Beverley FM:  “We want this to be a true community occasion.  Last year we held a major event to celebrate the late Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and now, almost a year later, we wanted to acknowledge the Coronation of her son, King Charles III.  However, we are also aware of the cost-of-living crisis and the King’s desire for celebrations nationwide to focus on the community and volunteering.  Therefore, our King’s Community Celebration takes this into consideration and will bring people together in an informal, free and friendly way.”  

Groups involved include East Riding Youth Orchestra, Beverley Handbell Ringers, Beverley Ukelele Group, Beverley Male Voice Choir and Beverley Church Lads and Girls Brigade.

THE EAST Riding’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, the Pipe & Glass at South Dalton, has retained its star for the 14th year running when the results were announced this week. Owners James and Kate Mackenzie took over the Pipe & Glass in 2006.

VISITORS heading towards Bridlington will be able to use the resort’s park and ride scheme from this Saturday. Based near South Cliff Holiday Park it’s  open from 7am – 8pm; transport links into town start at 9.30am.
