These have been very busy times for B & B C V H including a very successful Tour de Yorkshire, The Official Opening Celebrations and the AGM which included constitutional changes and the election of a brand new Chair and Committee. We shall be reflecting fully on all of these in early course. Please bear with us for a few days.


Didn’t we have a lovely time when Bradley came to Bempton!

Well done everyone. We put on a wonderful show and definitely “did our bit” to give Le Tour a great send off from the East Riding. (We lent it to North Yorkshire for the afternoon but it’s back tomorrow). The villages looked fabulous, we lined the streets and packed both Halls ( a big thank you to all the volunteers) and provided the bulk of Look North’s T V coverage (starring Bempton School, Shona, Betty, Shona,Tony, Shona and our very own Town Crier sorry if  I’ve forgotten anyone – did I mention Shona?). There should be some good selfies of village ladies with the hunky police outriders





All households in the villages have or will soon have received a flyer with details of events on Bank Holiday May 4th. There is something for everyone so do come along and join in the fun. Don’t forget the Hall will be open on Friday 1st May for the passage of the Tour de Yorkshire.


As a consequence of the Bowls Club having been accepted into the Scarborough League changes are being made as follows with effect from Wednesday 29th April :-

Tuesday evening and Friday morning remain as Village Bowling Sessions (all welcome but Fridays are busier).

Wednesday evening is now a private booking for the Bowls Club.
