Back in business

THE high streets of Holderness began to echo a sense of normality this week as non-essential retail and personal care services returned on Monday, April 12. And it wasn’t just retail and salons that reopened as the country headed into step two of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown – selfcontained accommodation can now open for overnight stays in England and indoor gyms and public buildings also opened their doors. Outdoor hospitality venues welcomed customers and public houses across the region saw their beer gardens spring into life after months of closure. It was a busy first day back for salons across the area. Amanda Beckett, owner of The Hair Lounge in Withernsea, and manager Janet Medforth said: “It’s been a bit of a relief and is a feeling of back to normal. It is constant cleaning between customers, and keeping to protocol and making sure it is all by...

Hopes are high for 2021 season at Withernsea Lighthouse Hornsea

AFTER being unable to open their doors for the 2020 season, the team at Withernsea Lighthouse are preparing to welcome visitors back to the iconic landmark on Saturday, May 22. The Lighthouse has been closed since October 2019. Withernsea Lighthouse Manager Lindsey Jones gave an outline of the work carried out during lockdown: “In the time we’ve been closed, we now have a screen at the front for social distancing, sanitizer and we now have a doorbell system in place for those visiting the top. We will get seating out in the gardens we’ve got gazebos that we can put up. We will have one...

Village Halls look forward to welcoming back the community

ALL over the county, village halls are planning to reopen. Supported by the East Riding Village Halls Network (ERVHN) its 86 member halls are in a good place to make this momentous step. For many months halls have been dormant and have missed an income from user groups such as yoga, Pilates, or table tennis. Bills have continued to come in. ERVHN has worked steadily in the background offering advice and help. Through telephone calls and emails members were informed of available grants and advised on how to apply for them...

Second donation for local defibs in memory of local GP

A FUNDRAISER remembering a beloved local GP has received another big boost following a further nomination from Long Riston’s Oasis garage. Malcolm Blake, the director of the garage, had once again put forward the cause in memory of Dr Alan Sykes for the £1,000 award from Certas Energy. In July 2017, Dr Alan Sykes, a GP at Beeford and Leven, passed away after suffering a pulmonary embolism during chemotherapy. Dr Sykes had served as a GP at the medical group for 33 years and was a senior partner for 15 years...

Football is back in Thorngumbald!

THIS week’s visitors to Thorn Park were Bridlington Rangers. The Barron’s showed promise from the off and soon tested Bridington’s goal with some well worked passing play from our midfield duo of Harry and Thomas. Unfortunately the final pass was always intercepted by the excellent Bridlington defence, and a clever counter attack saw them take the lead. A rare mix up between Riley and Isaac doubled the Brid lead just before halftime. The Barrons changed it up in the second half, Oliver and Will coming on to shore up the defence...

PATRINGTON AFC U9S

AFTER a stop-start year which has caused havoc with grass roots sport, finally today was the day we have all be waiting for, the restart of competitive football at a welcoming Welwick Road. Scheduled for a 10am kick off, the first visitors of this phase two campaign were St Andrews, a friendly bunch who we have met on a few occasions, which are always close encounters. Having managed to squeeze in half a dozen training sessions since the latest restrictions were lifted, we were clearly in the mood. Some excellent performances in training were leaving coaches Turnbull, Spruce and McBride with a severe selection headache...

A fantastic recent few weeks for the Lonely Goats

ABBIE and Alexia Morgan took on the David Goggins Challenge. This was a 48 hour challenge to run four miles every four hours. This was very challenging trying to include sleep and nutrition over the 48 hours. Starting Friday evening at 8pm and the last run being 4pm on the Sunday. They managed to find 12 different four mile loops so never having to run the same route twice. They were supported by Spike Morgan and Bradd Braddock for a couple of runs and then finished with the support of fellow Lonely Goats. A massive achievement on very little sleep. Bath Half Marathon was made...
