Fair Trade

Beverley and Fairtrade

Beverley first became a Fairtrade town in 2007. In 2015 there are 500 registered Fairtrade Towns in the UK and 2000 across the world including some in Europe, America, Japan and Ghana ‘ The UK is the leading supporter of Fairtrade and in 2013 sales of Fairtrade products reached £1.5 bn

We have an active group in Beverley who promote Fairtrade , sell products and campaign for more products to be sold under the Fairtrade banner  We have to renew our Fairtrade status every two years and produce evidence that we are active and developing  support.  We are active in local churches and schools supplying goods to sell and doing school assemblies.

In 2014 we were supporting the national Fairtrade campaign to increase the amount of Fairtrade bananas sold in supermarkets.  We have been using on line petitions as well as hard copies to sign and campaigning directly with the supermarkets. We even purchased a banana costume to help promote the campaign. We were fortunate to have a banana farmer from Colombia visit Yorkshire in 2014 and she gave a presentation in Hull University and Cherry Burton.

 Fairtrade Fortnight in 2015 took place from February 23rd to March 8th.  This is an annual national focus when a whole range of events take place. We rely on the Fairtrade Foundation for ideas and resources. They are celebrating 20 years since they began their work. Some of our members have visited Fairtrade producers in South Africa, Chile and Ghana and seen first hand the benefits of working with Fairtrade

If you would like to support Fairtrade in an active way they would welcome additional members to join our group. You can contact John Turner on Tel 01482 867573 or e mail

Beverley Lions Bonfire Night Fireworks

Lions bonfire.jpg

Each year the Beverley Lions Club organises its annual Fireworks Display on Guy Fawkes Night, 5 November, on the Beverley Westwood adjacent to Westwood Road.

Beverley Lions Club would like to thank people in Beverley and surrounding areas for their generosity at the recent Bonfire and Fireworks event on the Westwood.

The Bonfire will be lit at at 7.15pm, and the fireworks began at 7.45pm. Thanks go to Beverley Town Council who fund the building and dismantling of the bonfire.

Beverley Folk Festival

The festival was established in 1983 and was organised by the White Horse Folk Club, based in Beverley. It has developed over the years into one of this country’s most popular festivals of its kind.

Whilst remaining relatively small and intimate, if offers a programme of artists that some of the larger festivals find hard to beat. It aims to provide an eclectic programme to interest all age groups and interests.

Musical genres cover Folk, Acoustic, World Music, Americana, Contemporary and some Classic Rock. Whilst it retains its roots in the traditional music of the British Isles, the music is a terrific mix of new and old, big stage set piece performances along with intimate break out sessions.

But the Beverley experience doesn’t just include music. Over the past few years, it has added to its events, focusing on the Written and Spoken Word, Poetry; Comedy and an increasingly popular ‘Festival Film Club.

Beverley Real Ale Festival


The Memorial Hall hosted the 2013 Beverley Real Ale Festival in October 2013.

Set within this fantastic building, the festival showcased some of the countries finest real ales and ciders, food and live entertainment.

The festival got underway on Friday with an exclusive all-ticket event, with guests getting the chance to sample world-class ales from local producers, including Great Newsome Brewery, Wold Top, Moorlands Cider, with top entertainment from some of the region's finest acts.

Beverley Renaissance Partnership

Beverley Renaissance Partnership is one of several renaissance partnerships within the East Riding of Yorkshire that support the region's market towns.

The Partnership brings together a number of private, voluntary and public sector organisations who aim to develop Beverley and its surrounding area for residents, businesses and visitors, whilst respecting the natural and built environment and celebrating the town’s heritage and ancient past.  The Partnership aims to make Beverley an even better place to live, learn, work, visit and invest in.

The Beverley Renaissance Partnership works to strengthen links within the community and has developed a long-term plan to help secure the future prosperity of the Beverley area.

Beverley and Rural Community Partnership

Community Partnerships help to encourage individuals and communities across the East Riding to become more involved in decisions that are made about the public services that they receive.

The Community Partnerships also involve local people in tackling local issues to improve the quality of life of communities across East Riding.

Charter Trustees

Charter trustees are set up to maintain the continuity of a town charter or city charter after a district with the status of a borough or city has been abolished, until such time as a parish council is established.

Duties are limited to ceremonial activities such as the election of a mayor, and various other functions depending upon local customs and laws. The charter trustees are made up of local councillors in the district representing wards within the boundaries of the town/city.

Some abolished boroughs, such as Beverley, included a large rural area. In such cases, the charter trustees were not established for the entire area of the former borough, but were limited to that part of the new authority which was unparished: the area identifiable as the town.

Fix My Street

Flytipping or broken street lights? Just type the postcode and FixMyStreet will send your report to the correct council representative (In Beverley East Riding of Yorkshire Council is the responsible authority).
