Beachgoers urged to leave inflatables at home

FOLLOWING a busy day of call outs for Hornsea Inshore Rescue on Sunday, local sea safety organisations have urged those visiting the beach to avoid bringing inflatables. 

Hornsea’s very own independent lifeboat service was called out twice on Sunday, June 13. In the latter call out, Hornsea Inshore Rescue promptly set off to aid four individuals who had been blown out to sea on an inflatable unicorn toy. 

Two people had been on the toy at the time and two friends had swam out in an attempt to recover it. This left all four people in what Hornsea Inshore Rescue described as “significant danger”....

Outside dining in Hedon's Market Place

OUTSIDE dining in Hedon Market Place is several steps closer to realisation. The placing of chairs and tables in the Hedon Market Place to facilitate outdoor trading would seem to be quite a simple idea. But actually, pavement trading is governed by a raft of laws and legislation mostly administered by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC).

It also requires permission from landowners. So when Luxe Restaurant (The Rumour Mill) suggested doing such in the northern end of Hedon Market Place it prompted a flurry of activity and checks to ensure that it could happen. Hedon Town Council is...

Withernsea Under 8s end on a high

THE under 8s played their final match of the league campaign at home to Driffield Panthers, this brings an end to the 5 x 5 format of the game as they move up to play 7 x 7 moving forward.

It was a hot and sunny morning, and the boys

was down to 10 players with Sam and Jayden both away. The boys started game one very well, and soon started to get on top.

Freddie was taking a turn in goal, and he didn’t have much to do due to the great defensive work from 
Corey, and Louie and Josh tracking back. Ollie had a great chance to open the scoring, and we all thought he had scored but...

Thorngumbald Barrons U10s v Hall Road Rangers Cobras

THORN Barrons entertained Hall Road Rangers Cobras on probably the hottest Sunday morning of the season. 

Thorn had a couple of key players out and knew their opposition would be strong. But with a team that has good depth, they put on a performance, along with their opposition, that led to a loud, voracious applause on the final whistle from all spectators. 

The first game got off to an amazing start for Barrons with Elliot scoring after only 18 seconds! Thorn kept the pressure on with Callum, who stepped in at left wing, going close...

Middle order to the rescue

A fighting performance saw Patringon’s first eleven come away with a hard-fought victory against Sutton by 39 runs in a game that saw them fight back from a poor position to claim 30 points thanks to a fine 51 not out from left hander Bob Eldon-Smith.

Winning the toss, home captain Sam Fuller opted to bat first on a used and wearing pitch.

Although this was much to the delight of the visitors who seemed mesmerised at Fuller’s decision and they were cock-a-hoop when they had Patrington in early trouble at 19 for 3.With the top three of Connor McKinley, Ben Butler...
