to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Parish Council will not be holding
meetings until further notice
from your Chairman - February 2021
Unfortunately your Parish Council has not been able to meet so far
this year as is would be against government lockdown rules. However,
routine work has continued via telephone and email. We are in constant
communication with our first-rate Clerk who keeps us informed of all
the latest government regulations. We will restart our monthly meetings
when we are permitted to do so meanwhile Councillor Doreen Kaye and
I have been working on the next Parish Annual Report. As soon as it
is completed and the printers are open for business it will be delivered
to them. One very important piece of information that we are not able
to include in it at the moment is the date of our Annual Parish Meeting
as all bookings for halls in this area are closed at the present time.
We may have to ask you to watch the parish notice boards at the end
of April for a date in May.
The local Police send crime figures to us on a regular basis. The latest
ones inform us that there were 8 attempted burglaries across Willerby
and Kirk Ella at the beginning of this year. Three of the eight were
failed attempts; the others were mostly break-ins to outbuildings, sheds
and garages. There were also reports of two shop thefts in our area.
Two offenders were arrested and charged with multiple offences thus
reports have now significantly decreased.
We are all keen to have the vaccination and some of us may have already
had our first one and will be waiting for the second dose. Whilst anxious,
please be aware of the Covid-19 scam which is highly believable. It
starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply
for the vaccine and to click on the link in the text message. It follows
that the user is led to a web page and asked to complete some details
to apply for the vaccine. It might even say – NHS: We have identified
that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine. The details asked for
are as follows: Name, Address, Date of Birth, Proof of Address and Card
The Police message is NEVER give out your personal details. Police
have also had reports of scammers asking people to pay for the vaccine
over the phone.
Lastly, I would like to leave you with this thought, what a wonderful
man Captain Sir Tom Moore was. His daughter has suggested that people
might like to plant a tree in his memory. As your Parish Council, perhaps
we should consider it.
Councillor Margaret Raymond
Chairman - Kirk Ella & West Ella Parish Council
