EAST YORKS: Green householders in the region can take advantage of a new scheme.
Energy Minister Ed Davey, right, has announced the Green Deal Cashback Scheme is open, with hundreds of pounds of cash available to householders who make energy-saving home improvements.
Householders who use the Green Deal to make improvements such as loft insulation, solid wall insulation and new heating systems will qualify.
Packages could be worth more than £1,000.

To qualify for the Cashback Scheme, households need to book a Green Deal property assessment so they are then ready to have improvements installed under the Green Deal from January 28.
Mr Davey said: "The Green Deal will be a great offer for people to insulate their homes from the cold and their wallets from rising energy prices.
"Our Cashback Scheme is a generous offer but it's first-come, first-served, so householders need to be quick off the mark."
The Green Deal Cashback scheme is a time-bound offer and is limited to one per household, but can cover a package of improvements so long as the householder is contributing to installation costs and work is overseen by an authorised Green Deal Provider.
To find out more about the Green Deal and book a property assessment, call the Energy Saving Advice Service on 0300 123 1234.
EAST Riding: Proposed licence fees for private hire and hackney carriage drivers in the region are being frozen for the coming year.
They range from renewal fees for drivers to licences covering the use of horse-drawn vehicles, rickshaws and stretch limos.
A proposed list of fees for different categories of licence has been published by East Riding Council and is available for the authority's website. If no objections are received, the fees will come into effect from April 1.
HULL: Eight local artists have banded together for a new exhibition in Princes Avenue.

The exhibition includes work by Martyn and Ruth Chalk, Anne Clark, Alice Fox, Trish O'Shea, Sarah Pennington, Michael Scrimshaw and Martyn Waters.
