“The event is open to people of all ages so please drop-in at any time during the morning to hear from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service about the work of our Community First Responder Teams and how you can support or join your local team.

The British Red Cross is inviting nominations to their Humanitarian Citizen Awards to celebrate the extraordinary things that ordinary young people do.
Graham Stuart said, “I often see and hear about inspirational young people in our area who give their time to help others and their communities. I want to see the young people of Beverley & Holderness achieve great things in their lives; there are some who are already on the way to becoming the next generation’s community leaders. I think we should celebrate their achievements by putting them up to be a Community Hero.
“If you know of a young person who helps with fund raising, gives their time for the benefit of others or has done something amazing as a first aider, for example, then please tell the British Red Cross about them.
“Nominations are open to both groups and individuals under the age of 25 who make a real difference to the lives of others in their community.
“Nominations can be made online; please go to http://rocketseed.redcross.org.uk/rs/-myB7R“

Local MP Graham Stuart has welcomed news that recorded crime in the Humberside Police area has fallen by 14 percent over the last twelve months. Crime in England and Wales is down by more than 10 percent since the last general election, and the Independent Crime Survey shows crime is at its lowest level since records began
Commenting, Graham said, “The news that crime is falling in East Yorkshire will be welcomed by local people. It’s important that we recognise the great work our police do; and the hardworking officers in Humberside Police can be proud of their success.
“Conservatives are on the side of people who work hard and do the right thing, and we are reforming the police so they can cut crime and make our communities safer. Reform of the police is a necessary part of getting Government overspending under control. We’ve got a lot more to do if the public finances are to be made sustainable but the good news is that the deficit has been cut by a third since Labour left office, yet crime is also down. I know that in his Police and Crime Plan 2013-17, our new Police Commissioner has set out his vision for making our streets even safer over the coming years, and I welcome his plan to make cutting crime his number one priority.”
