Together with many more regular events, Active Coast 2019 has something for everyone this summer. Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure, said : “It’s another amazing programme of Active Coast events and activities this summer, and I am delighted that we have again been able to offer events in various locations along the East Riding coast.
“I would also like to thank our Active Coast partners – Skyball, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, East Coast Beach Soccer, Surfers Against Sewage, and the Yorkshire Cricket Board – for working with us to put on such a varied programme this year.
“Here’s to another great summer of Active Coast!”
