East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Active Towns project is hosting a series of 'What's On' events in Goole, Howden, Pocklington and Market Weighton this Easter.

The events will encourage and support communities and residents to become more physically, mentally and socially active by offering local groups, clubs and charities the chance to showcase what they do in the four towns. There will be a variety of organisations attending, and members of the public will be able to find out what activities are available to them in their own locality.

Running alongside the 'What's On' events will be a 'Family Fun Day' with free activities for all age groups to get involved in.

Active Towns is also working with the charity R-evolution again this year to offer residents free bike library activities in each town, including the chance to loan a bike free of charge, free cycle servicing and minor repairs, go on a led cycle ride around the town or even undertake a free cycle maintenance training course to learn how to fix a puncture and keep their bike in good working order.

The events will take place on:

Monday, 11 April: 10.30am - 2.30 pm: Market Weighton Community Hall and Aspen Close (play area)

Thursday, 14 April:  11.00 am - 4.00 pm: Howden Shire Hall and the Ashes

Thursday, 21 April:  11am - 4.00 pm : Goole West Park 

Friday, 22 April: 10.30am - 2.30pm: Pocklington Rugby Club

Active Towns is working closely in the community with residents, local clubs, groups and organisations to expand community resources, and increase the number of wellbeing activities available for local residents to enjoy.

Councillor Mike Medini, portfolio holder for cultural and leisure assets,  said : "I am very pleased that our exciting Active Towns project is able to put on these informative and enjoyable events this Easter, and I hope they will appeal to local residents. I think they will prove very useful indeed, and a great way to spend an hour or two this Easter holiday."
