Celebrate 25 years of the council with our special edition of the staff podcast!
Thu, 15 Apr 2021

To mark the occasion of the council's 25th anniversary, the podcast team have produced a special edition of 'I Heard it Through the Grapevine', in association with Beverley FM.

Presented by Steve Eccles from the public relations team and Helena Cox, curator of Beverley Art Gallery, this special edition includes messages and memories from chief executive Caroline Lacey and the leader of the council, Councillor Richard Burton, and their thoughts on the future.

Alan Menzies, director of planning and economic regeneration, recalls some of his amusing memories from the last 25 years, including a very unfortunate incident in a London hotel!

We talk to staff who have been here throughout the whole 25 years, including Nial Adams and David Marchant from the Museums Service, and John Pickering, head zookeeper at Sewerby Zoo, about changes over 25 years and the pressures of worldwide fame!

And we look to the future by talking to apprentice George Wilson about the merits of the council's apprenticeship scheme.

What is a podcast?
A podcast is a series of digital audio files made available on a regular basis. Podcasts can be listened to online or downloaded onto a computer or mobile device to listen to later.

How can I access this out of work?
Staff can access the podcast via the intranet from home and can also listen to the podcast for free via SoundCloud.

You can also download the podcast from SoundCloud to listen to on another device but will need to create an account to do this.

Is the podcast content available in other ways?
I Heard It Through The Grapevine has been developed by the corporate communications team to complement other internal communications channels, including the intranet and The Grapevine. Some features will appear across all three channels.
