BEVERLEY Racecourse and Molescroft Primary School are celebrating after striking gold in the prestigious Yorkshire in Bloom awards – the racecourse in the class for medium-sized businesses and Molescroft Primary in the Young People’s Award category.

In their summary of Beverley Racecourse’s efforts, the judges noted: ‘The approach to the racecourse through Beverley Common provides an excellent setting for what awaited the judges. We found an impressive course, very well maintained with a variety of excellent planters throughout,” they said. 

With regards to Molescroft’s entry, the judges highlighted a fitting tribute to a much-loved late teacher, as well as the enthusiasm of both students and staff in making the school a biodiverse area. “The environment is embedded in everything that they do,’ remarked the judging panel.

BEVERLEY MP Graham Stuart is seeking people’s views over proposals to build a new recycling centre on land north west of the Ings Road Picnic Site in Molescroft, to replace the existing facility at Weel and plans to host a public meeting on Saturday at 10am at the car park near Ings Road.

The MP told Beverley FM: “It’s important that everyone has their say in their local area – and that’s why I’m asking residents to tell me in person what they think about the proposed Molescroft Recycling Centre.”

As previously reported by Beverley FM, opposition to East Riding Council’s plans continues to grow and Mr Stuart is also urging people to submit their views via the council’s planning portal here.
