Great Yorkshire Radio chats to East Riding of Yorkshire Council's Leader Jonathan Owen at County Hall in Beverley, for an update on the Coronavirus situation. We also cover a wide range of subjects, including the East Riding's education services and a recent inspection by Ofsted, the challenge of operating services during the pandemic, how to get involved in the Local Plan, and the support available for families during the summer holidays. If you're in the Care Sector, this is also covered, with a large amount of extra funding going into it, and we have some good news on parks and playgrounds too!

Mark Adams from the Definitive Rat Pack chats to Great Yorkshire Radio about their forthcoming Sounds in the Grounds performance at the stunning Ripley Castle on Friday 20th August. If you love a swing singalong and songs you know all the words to, this is going to be a fantastic evening of fun and entertainment!

Luke joins Great Yorkshire Radio to tell us more about the Love Your Railway campaign which North Yorkshire Moors Railway has joined, along with 35 venues across the UK, to raise awareness of all the work that goes on behind the scenes at these fantastic railway attractions.  It's split up into six weekly themes - Heritage, Education, Volunteers, Family, Sustainability and Future. NYMR is also looking for volunteers if you can spare some time.
