REYTA Finalist Just Beverley shortlisted nominee o2 community publication award 2017
Ivan

Call out to Beverley – based voluntary groups to save the date, and get involved in a major community event

Sunday, 26 June, 2022, will see a major event at East Riding Leisure Beverley, when many local organisations, sports clubs and local residents will come together for the Ivan Usher Community Celebration, from 10am to 3pm.

The event will be a joint initiative between the council’s health and wellbeing team, East Riding Leisure Beverley and The Usher family, and will be a tribute to the memory of Ivan Usher, after whom a stand is named at Beverley Town FC. Ivan taught PE at Longcroft School for approximately 30 years before his family set up and ran a Fitness Centre in Beverley. He was an extremely respected teacher and sportsman and inspired and influenced many people.

On the day, local rugby and football clubs will take part in a range of junior tournaments, competing for the Ivan Usher Cup. There will also be opportunities for the public to take part in a wide range of sports and activities – details will be announced shortly.

The event will also be a chance for local voluntary community groups to take an information stall and let the community know what is going on in the local area. Stallholders will not be allowed to sell any products.

Laura Hutchinson, healthy lifestyles development officer at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said : “We would like to hear now from any Beverley-based community group who would like to have a stall free of charge at our What’s On event as part of the Ivan Usher Community Celebration.

“This will be a great chance to get your message across to the people of Beverley and the surrounding area as to what you can offer the local community.”

Any local voluntary group interested in having a stall should contact laura.hutchinson @eastriding.gov.uk as soon as possible, as there will be limited numbers of stall available.
