Countryside events programme launched for 2018

East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s countryside access team has launched its Countryside Events 2018 programme.

From rambles and themed walks (including photography, navigation, bushcraft, geocaching and orienteering) to wildlife watching events; from Kids Go Wild events to workshops, conservation days and natural craft workshops - the programme includes something for everybody with an interest in the outdoors. The programme also links to the council’s Active Coast initiative this year.

The programme, sponsored by NHS Healthcheck, runs throughout the year.  Many events are free; others have nominal charges.

The Countryside events programme contributes to the new campaign to ‘Enjoy Spring in the Yorkshire Wolds’, promoted by the Yorkshire Wolds Tourism Network to encourage visits to the area at a quieter time of the year.

The Countryside Events programme runs alongside the council’s Walking for Health programme, a series of free guided walks for all ages and abilities, organised by the council’s sports, play and arts service, aimed at anyone who is interested in walking or wants to introduce exercise into their daily routine as part of rehabilitation from illness or injury, or to get fit.

The range of walks on offer range from 30 minutes to two hours, and operate from East Riding Leisure Beverley and Bridlington; Brough Methodist Church; Cottingham Sports Centre; East Riding Leisure Driffield, Goole, Haltemprice and Hornsea; Hessle Community Centre; Shire Hall, Howden; Skidby Mill; Leven Sports and Social Club; Paull St Andrew Church; Market Weighton Methodist Church; Preston Community Hall; East Riding Leisure Francis Scaife in Pocklington; Sewerby Hall and Gardens; East Riding Leisure South Cave and Withernsea; and from Welwick Village Hall.

Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said: “These are superb programmes of events for East Riding residents in a range of locations across the area, offering a wide variety of activities. People can enjoy interesting and healthy pursuits whilst gaining access to the best public viewpoints, the best landscapes and the best wildlife to be seen in the East Riding.”

The programme is available online at www.eastriding.gov.uk/events  or a hard copy brochure is available from Tourist Information Centres, the council’s leisure centres, libraries and Customer Service Centres.

Performance poet Carmen Marcus coming to Beverley Library

Author and performance poet Carmen Marcus will be at Beverley Library on Thursday, 5 April to deliver a Writing Workshop from 1.30pm – 3pm.

She will be posing the question: “How  do writers transfer their ideas to the written word?” It will be an opportunity for budding writers to find some inspiration for their own writing.

Carmen Marcus lives in the Victorian spa town of Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Her writing has been described as 'crackling dangerously with inherited magic, yet achieving contemporary vitality.'

She is in much demand as a performance poet and has appeared at the Royal Festival Hall. Recently she has been commissioned by BBC Radio 3's Verb New Voices.

'How Saints Die' is her first novel and as a work in progress it won New Writing North's 'Northern Promise' Award.

Tickets for the Writing Workshop cost £7.50 each, and are available now from Beverley Library, or by calling the Booking Line (01482) 392699  or online at www.bridspa.com. Booking is essential.
