BEVERLEY councillor Denis Healy says there has been an overwhelming response in favour of an annual Beverley Day following the success of last Friday’s day of celebration for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. As we reported on Saturday, Cllr Healy floated the idea of creating a similar event on an annual basis to bring the town together and asked for comments from the public. 

He’s since told us: ”You have overwhelmingly  said that you would like to see an event like this become a regular feature of our town’s life. An event to simply celebrate the joy of human interaction which we have all missed so much over the last couple of years.” He continued: “It’s up to the Beverley Town Councillors to decide if they have the will to make an annual ‘Beverley Day’ happen, but you have given us a very strong steer, and at the end of the day, in a democracy, the people are in charge. I think you have spoken. 

BEVERLEY & East Riding Golf Club, the oldest golf club in Yorkshire having being formed in 1899, is holding an open afternoon this Sunday, June 12, for prospective members or those thinking of taking up the game. The “taster sessions” run from 1 – 3pm with free tuition and use of equipment. It’s free to attend but booking is essential on 01482 868757.

EAST RIDING residents can benefit from free self-paced computer courses using the public access computers in libraries, including Beverley Library, or by using their own device from home or on the go. More than 30 courses include using a touchscreen, using email, creating spreadsheets, and how to keep personal data safe.
