Tales From The Treasure House: Disappearing Piers And Seaside …

Tales From The Treasure House: Disappearing Piers And Seaside ...

It is fair to say that this winter, so far, could be summed up as generally wet and wild, rather than cold and frosty. Instead of the cold weather normally expected at this time of year, the UK has been subjected to storm after storm of various names and sizes. Up to now, our part of the world has remained relatively unscathed by the damaging nature of these storms. But East Yorkshire has seen its fair share of weather-related damage in its time, both in recent memory and long into the past. One way to find out about this is by looking into the East Riding Archives, preserved at the [1] in [2].

In here are historic documents and photographs that give a tiny glimpse of what our ancestors had to put up with in stormy times like the ones we face today. One such storm (that might ring bells with anyone who is familiar with the tidal surge that struck the Humber estuary in 2013) occurred 90 years ago when, on 12 March 1906, a tremendous storm hit [3], and combined with unusually high tides to flood the area between the Mere and the sea, washing away the entire Promenade Gardens and smashing the town s sea defences, known as Groynes. Some 13 years earlier, [4] bore the brunt when a ship called the Henry Parr collided with the pier in stormy weather, smashing it to pieces in a shower of sparks on 22 November 1893. If anyone has ever wondered why [5] has two stone towers presenting a bizarre entrance to the beach this is all that now remains of the pier following its spectacular destruction.

Going back further through the archives to 1660, there is evidence in a parish [6] register for North Dalton which reads upon Saturday night betwixt the hours of ten and three of the clocke a most violent wind happened which brought much prejudice unto the people of North Dalton, and other places of the contrey . Readers can only speculate as to the extent of the damage caused to the village, and over in [7] in November 1740, their parish registers show that a storm or hurricane from the north, that continued about twelve hourse, did great damage both by sea and land. Archivist [8] said: Finding evidence of wild weather events does involve a bit of a trawl through the records, but you might want to go online to check out our new East Riding Archives page on Flickr, where you can see a sample of photographic archives connected with stormy weather.

Outstanding Achievements Honoured In Awards Ceremony

Outstanding Achievements Honoured In Awards Ceremony

Excellence and dedication were recognised at [1] s annual awards ceremony at The Spa [2]. The event saw 40 students, employers and staff each presented with a glass trophy and a gift voucher in recognition of their achievements. Winners came from all over the East Yorkshire and ranged from younger students in full-time further education to adults who were studying as part of their job.

Stories ranged from those who had simply excelled throughout their course to those who had overcome significant personal difficulties to be successful. There were also awards for employers in recognition of their commitment to workforce development and [3] employees who had excelled in using their own professional development for the benefit of learners. Principal [4] said:

Our annual awards are an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our students and the progress they have made since enrolling at the College.

Myself, colleagues and the friends and families of our learners watched with great pride as they stepped up to receive their awards and enjoyed their fully deserved moment in the spotlight.

He added: It is very pleasing to recognise the commitment of employers who partner with the College to train their staff and enhance the professional effectiveness of their workforce.

The event is also an opportunity to thank our own staff for their excellent achievements and the ongoing dedication they show to their professional development.

[5], Chairman of the College s Governors, said:

My fellow governors and I were delighted to hear such wonderful stories of achievement from our students.

Working in education is very rewarding and never more so than when we see what students can achieve with the support and encouragement of a talented team of tutors. The evening began with the College s Annual General Meeting, in which Mr Branton looked back on a very successful 2014-2015 academic year. He referred to the College s extensive work with employers and the close alignment of the curriculum with the skills priorities set for the region by the Local Enterprise Partnerships.

The College recruitment levels remained very high for both young people and adults. High success rates were accompanied by strong positive rates of progression with 94 per cent of learners on full-time courses progressing directly into [6] or higher level study, either at the College or at university. Mr Branton also mentioned that the College had transformed its estate in seven years, with the construction of new campuses in Beverley and [7] and the refurbishment of its Hull site. The awards ceremony was then led by Vice Principal, Rhys Davies and Director of Human Resources, [8], with the awards presented by members of the governing body.

Each of the awards was sponsored by a local firm. To see photographs of the award winners, visit www.[9].com/eastridingcollege
