‘Active Coast’ is a full programme of events and activities throughout the school holidays to celebrate sport and culture and allow people to explore, join in, and enjoy the East Riding’s stunning coastline. Launched two weeks ago, the programme so far has been a huge success, with thousands of people taking advantage of the wide range of activities.
