The East Riding coast is full of beautiful scenery that can be explored through hugely popular walks on our beaches and through our countryside. This beauty is not without risk however. Make sure you take all the necessary precautions before you head outside!
Learn more about how to #enjoywatersafely with these water safety campaigns supported by East Riding Leisure. Whether you're going for a walk along part of our coastline, visiting one of the many local nature reserves, or heading out for a day at the beach, know how to keep yourself and your family safe in and around water.
These campaigns only last a week or so, but water safety is important all year round.
There are not many things better than going for a leisurely stroll round your local village, past windswept cliffs, rolling hills and open fields.
However, it is important to realise you are not alone! Spare a thought for the birds, animals, plants and trees you may encounter and what you can do to help conserve their future. Keep to designated routes, close any gates you open and keep your dogs under close control.

Please keep out of the nature reserve ponds at all times, swimming and paddling is not permitted.
Dress to Impress
There's nothing more British than talking about the weather! Two in five Brits turn to the weather as a conversation-starter when they need to get a chat going, with the average person spending the equivalent of more than six months of their life talking about the weather.
Follow the 3 'P's before heading out and you won't go far wrong
