New exhibit for Hedon Museum : A
really glamorous donation has been received by Hedon Museum. It is a
beautiful full-length ball gown in the style of an 18th C French 'sac-back'
dress and it was made over a hundred years ago. The Museum has had the
dress authenticated by experts at the Castle Museum, York and it proves
to be a dress created to be worn as a 'fancy dress'. It belonged to
the wife of the owner of the Hall at Thorngumbald.

Footpath closure in Paull : a temporary closure order has been issued for the footpath along the river front at Paull, effective for ten metres either side of the slipway adjacent to the playing field. Erosion by storm and wave action on the river has caused the slipway and sea wall on either side of it to be extremely unstable and liable to collapse so the East Riding of Yorkshire Council have closed the footpath in the vicinity as a matter of public safety. The path is likely to be closed for several months so please take care and avoid the area (there are alternative routes available to avoid the dangerous area and still enjoy a walk along the front.)
Decorating at Youth Centre : over the February half
term Holderness Youth Initiative have been supporting the young people
of South Holderness Youth Centre, Preston, on a decorating project at
the centre. In partnership with Hayley Burn, the South Holderness Youth
Worker, Christina Keyworth, the Assistant Development Worker for Holderness
Youth Initiative and Judi Skippen, Administration Clerk for Holderness
Youth Initiative, the young people donned overalls and armed themselves
with scrapers and paintbrushes to revamp their centre. Various skills
such as stripping wallpaper, polyfilling, painting techniques and most
importantly team working and commitment to complete the task were learnt,
along with the importance of cleaning up after themselves. The young
people had fun while they learned these very valuable lessons and the
South Holderness Youth Centre now has a brand new look, thanks to all
the hard work and effort put in by these young people and their adult
Farmers Bingo : Holderness Lions will be holding their
