Now that the gas is back on we hope everyone is getting warmed up. Northern Gas Network engineers are still all over town, they are visiting all the vulnerable residents/hospital/care homes first to make sure everyone’s heating is back on, and will then visit every house and business. If you are having difficulty getting your heating back on let us know we can pass your details on and get someone out to you, or phone 0800 040 7766 – option 5. You can still call in to the AFC pavilion on the Hull Road Playing Fields, or just ask one of the engineers in the hi-viz jackets that are around town, they will help you. We cannot thank Northern Gas Network and East Riding of Yorkshire Council emergency planning services enough for their hard work this weekend, it has been a massive undertaking and their customer care and organisation has been excellent….and a huge thank you to all of the people who gave up their weekend to come and help us, things would not have moved on as quickly without your help.

Withernsea is a traditional holiday resort in the East Riding of Yorkshire, sporting an attractive promenade and seafront. The famous lighthouse towers above the houses, some 127 feet high, the home of the Lighthouse Museum with its tribute to Hollywood film star Kay Kendall.

The Pier Towers on the promenade are the last surviving part of the once proud 19th century pier. The splendid beach provides plenty of enjoyment for everyone young and old.

The Pavilion Leisure Centre boasts excellent facilities, both wet and dry, with its superb swimming pool, gym, sauna, sports hall and squash courts.

The habitual shoppers can benefit from a selection of shops in, the recently refurbished, Queen Street and around the town.

What seaside resort would be complete without the amusement arcades, and Withernsea is certainly no let down. A good selection is available ranging from the ‘one armed bandits’ to the latest video game technology and from bowling alleys to children’s adventure playgrounds and recreational gardens on the central sea front.

Eating out provides many options as the friendly pubs, restaurant cafes and takeaways spoil you for choice.

Tourist attractions are in abundance both inland and coastal. Surrounding Withernsea are numerous interesting villages in a patchwork of open countryside in the East Riding of Yorkshire, including the historic town of Hedon, Hornsea with its excellent Freeport shopping complex and beautiful mere, the famous Spurn Point with its bird sanctuary, and the fascinating Fort Paull. Withernsea also benefits from being only 20 miles away from the metropolitan City of Hull.
