Arthristis Action Group

Online Arthritis Action Groups


We are pleased to announce we will be running Arthritis Action Group meetings online via Zoom. Our next online group for Yorkshire will take place at 2pm on 6th August.

These meetings will be an opportunity for people with arthritis to talk with others and share their tips on how to manage their arthritis symptoms, stay active and keep positive. Participants will need to contact us directly for the log in instructions for the meeting, and we have produced How To guides for those not familiar with using Zoom.

Litter Pickers

Bempton Parish Council would like to thank the residents who are keeping the village clean and tidy. These residents have taken it upon themselves to give up their time walking along the verges picking up the takeaway cartons and drink containers which mindless drivers/passengers throw out of their vehicles.

These volunteers are an inspiration to others and we thank them for their service to the village.
