Following the fantastic sell-out success of ‘Ugly Duckling’, The Spa Bridlington is delighted to announce the new Northern Ballet’s children show: Three Little Pigs, on Friday 28 March.
Three little pigs set out into the world. The first pig decides to build a house of straw, the second a house made of sticks and the third pig chooses to build a house of bricks. Then along comes a very hungry wolf. The wolf begs each little pig to invite him in for dinner. When they refuse he threatens to huff and puff and blow their houses down. Will any of the pigs be smart enough to escape the big bad wolf?
Bringing the timeless fairytale to life Three Little Pigs is the perfect opportunity to introduce your little ones to the magic of live ballet, music and theatre.
These child friendly performances will last approximately 40 minutes.
The shows take place on Friday 28 March at 12.15 pm, 2.00pm and 4.00pm. Tickets are available from the box office on (01262) 678258 or online at www.TheSpaBridlington.com/threelittlepigs
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is pleased to announce that the Government has confirmed its bid to the Coastal Communities Fund has been approved.
The council has successfully secured £2.1 million from the Government, funding that will go towards the redevelopment of Leisure World, in Bridlington, which will see the old centre taken down and a new multi-million-pound leisure facility constructed in its place.
The Coastal Communities Fund announcement is the latest positive news in relation to the scheme and comes just days after Sport England committed £2m of National Lottery investment from its Olympic legacy fund, Iconic Facilities.
Total funding for the works now stands at around £22 million, the majority of which is from the council’s capital investment programme.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Securing this funding is great news and affirms this council’s commitment to Bridlington.
“We are starting to see the early stages of this exciting project come together. Our contractor, BAM Construction, has taken over the site and we have transferred gym equipment and exercise classes over to Bridlington Sports Centre where GB freestyle swimmer and Olympic Bronze medallist, Jo Jackson, also officially opened a temporary 25m Olympic legacy pool.
“Thanks to prudent financial management by this council, we are able to invest in our facilities and services and, when complete, this new venue will provide both residents and visitors with a state-of-the-art leisure centre as well as providing a timely boost to the local economy.”
Anticipated to be complete by autumn 2015, the new leisure centre will feature:
* a 25m, six-lane swimming pool, max depth 2m
* a13x7m learner pool with moveable floor - operating to a maximum depth of 2m
* leisure water – freeform pool to include water play features and slides connected to the learner pool by moveable bund. 2 slides with aqua run-off.
* swimming spectator seating for 150
* village style wet changing facilities at pool level
* a health suite –steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi
* a 70-station fitness suite
* an exercise studio
* a spinning studio
* a six-court sports hall – specified to Sport England Club level.
* two squash courts
* dry sports and separate members changing areas
* a feature climbing wall – located within central ‘street’
* spaces suitable for clubroom, dance classes, yoga, children's parties
* a cafe/ coffee shop - open access to non-centre users with external seating and views over the bay
* health and wellbeing consulting space
* third party retail units
* additional parking provision on the site and much easier drop-off and pick-up.

Television viewers will be able to see East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s director of public health, Dr Tim Allison, answering questions on The Black Death in the semi-finals of BBC 2’s Mastermind.
Dr Allison recently took his place in the famous big black chair to compete for a place in the grand final.
Viewers will find out how he got on when the semi-final is screened on Friday 14 March, at 8pm.
Dr Allison won his place in the semi-final by winning an initial heat of the popular quiz show, in which his specialist subject was The Fiction of CS Lewis.
He chose the novels of CS Lewis because he had often played audio books of the Narnia novels to his children in the car.
His choice of subject for the semi-final was more difficult but he settled on The Black Death because of his interest in both history and health.
Dr Allison said: “Appearing on the Mastermind semi-final was an enjoyable experience and I enjoyed both answering questions in the black chair and chatting with other contestants.
“I chose The Black Death as my specialist subject because I have an interest in history and it gave me the opportunity to study books on the subject in depth that I had not read before. There is not much in common with modern public health.”
Competing for the Mastermind trophy was not Dr Allison’s first TV quiz show experience, as he first appeared on television screens as a teenager, when he was the first ever single champion of the cult quiz show Blockbusters.

Calling all young people….. the adventure starts here.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s youth and family support service is holding recruitment evenings for young people aged 14 to 24 years to join the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is nationally and internationally recognised by colleges, universities and employers as a programme that young people have achieved and ‘done something different’ with their lives that makes them stand out from the crowd.
The programme is at three levels – bronze, silver and gold, dependant on the young person’s age. Whatever level is undertaken, a personal programme of activities is achieved that includes a skill, a physical activity, a volunteering programme and an expedition.
The bronze level can be completed in just nine months, silver in 12 months and gold in 18 months.
Many young people are already doing some of these activities as hobbies or interests. The programme is an opportunity to do something different, create new experiences, learn new skills, gain new friends and have fun.
All training for expeditions is given, and most camping equipment can be borrowed from the Duke of Edinburgh Unit.
Enrolment evenings are:-
* Beverley – Wednesday 19 March, Beverley youth and family support centre, Burden Road, 7pm.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is reminding those who need permits to use the 10 household waste recycling sites that they are due for renewal.
The council is issuing new-style permits that do not have an end date and allow the holder to drop off garden waste without having to use one of the permits. The changes are being brought in from 1 April.
Residents can get six permits each year to use their large trailer or commercial type vehicles to take their own household waste to the sites. Commercial waste is not accepted at any of the sites.
The new permits no longer have an expiry date. Previously users had to apply for permits each year regardless of whether they had any remaining.
Permit holders taking only garden waste, such as hedge trimmings and grass cuttings, to any of the sites no longer have to hand in one of their permits. Instead they show their new garden waste pass, issued with all the new permits, to an attendant before they tip waste.
Applications for renewal can be made online by visiting www.eastriding.gov.uk/hwrs-permits. There is no longer any need to attach documentation such as the V5C. Forms can also be downloaded from the council’s website www.eastriding.gov.uk. For further information, visit www.eastriding.co.uk/hwrs-permits or call (01482) 393939.

Businesses in East Yorkshire are being invited to a series of Grand Départ roadshows as the county gears up to host the opening stages of the Tour de France.
The roadshows, which are being held jointly by Welcome to Yorkshire and Visit Hull and East Yorkshire (VHEY), highlight how businesses can benefit from the world’s largest annual sporting event coming to Yorkshire in 2014.
A roadshow will be held at Wolds Village in Driffield on Monday, 17 March and a few days later one will be held on Thursday, 20 March at The Spa Bridlington. A further roadshow will be held at the Lowther Hotel in Goole on the Wednesday, 2 April.
Hundreds of businesses and thousands of people have already packed into previous roadshows to hear about the opportunities available to them from the arrival of the Grand Départ. The tour starts in Leeds and races to Harrogate for stage one on 5 July. Stage two will see it race from York to Sheffield on 6 July, with a third stage from Cambridge to London on 7 July.
Councillor Jane Evison, cabinet portfolio holder for economy, investment and inequalities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The East Riding is an area with a great passion for cycling and the fact that Yorkshire is hosting one of the sporting world’s showpiece events is an occasion for the whole county to celebrate.
“The Grand Départ will have untold benefits for tourism and boosting the local economy in the East Riding and the council is encouraging businesses make every effort to capitalise on this.
“Anticipation is building around July’s race and the roadshows show how businesses can tap into this and showcase the best of our countryside to the world.”
Businesses have been overwhelmingly positive about the roadshows which highlight what it will mean to them and their communities, both on and off the route.
Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “We’ve had a fantastic response to our roadshows. Across the region people have been packing out the rooms because they want to get involved with the biggest annual sporting event in the world. We’ve been blown away by the reception we have received at every one and the passion of the people.
“The county is gearing up to receive the Tour de France, which is the biggest thing to happen in Yorkshire and with everyone pulling in the same direction we can deliver the best ever Grand Départ. The boost to the region’s economy can already be felt in the tourism sector with accommodation filling up quickly not just during the weekend of the Tour, but also before.”
It is conservatively estimated that the economic impact of hosting the Grand Départ will be worth approximately £100m to the Yorkshire economy.
The roadshows in Driffield on 17 March, The Spa Bridlington on 20 March and Goole on 2 April will all start at 2.30pm.
People can register to attend a forthcoming roadshow at http://industry.yorkshire.com/industry-events/tdf-roadshows

Councillor Jane Evison, cabinet portfolio for economy, investment and inequalities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The council is committed to assisting our residents to access apprenticeship opportunities, support the area’s business community and provide a robust response to grow the local economy.
“National Apprenticeship Week is an ideal platform on which we can all recognise the valuable contributions apprentices make to our economy and highlight the benefits of apprenticeships as a possible career path and the value they can have for businesses and organisations.”
