Kirk Ella Village Shop

As shops begin to open again please remember the local ones that have gone out of their way to take orders and deliver to your door throughout the recent crisis. Please continue to support them.

The local owner of Kirk Ella News, for the past 25 years, very much hopes to keep the shop as a traditional village shop (near The Wheatsheaf) in the heart of Kirk Ella village when the current tenant leaves. Should you have any ideas for this business please call the owner for a chat on 0783 1529 019.

FREE Bespoke Cycle Training Offer
During the lockdown, many residents have been walking and cycling as part of their daily exercise.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is keen for people to continue as the restrictions are eased and its Road Safety Team is offering safe, free personal cycle training to support residents in this transition.

The sessions will help to give adults and children aged 11 and over the opportunity to gain the skills and confidence to cycle more regularly as workplaces, shops and as schools begin to reopen. See POSTER pdf

SCAM - Amazon gift card
This claims to offer recipients the chance to win a £1,000 Amazon gift card. The subject reads: “On the occasion of overcoming the coronavirus, Amazon gives you the gift of victory.” The senders name is spoofed to read ‘contact@amazon.com. The recipient is instructed to click on a link in order to apply, which has been identified as malware. It is common for such scams offering free vouchers to ask for a persons bank details. Remember 'If it sounds too good to be true, it definitely is!

Dog Fouling
A general reminder to all dog walkers that they have to clean up after their dog, whatever the weather or leaf or snow cover. The same applies to the hours of darkness - you need a torch. There are plenty of litter bins throughout the Parish, so please pick it up. When the children are encouraged to walk to school it is only fair that dog mess is picked up. East Riding of Yorkshire Council has issued Fixed Penalty Notices in Kirk Ella for failure to clear up after a dog has fouled. If any resident can identify a dog walker who does not clean up, with the time and place, they should report it to ERYC, and the dog warden will try to visit the area. We have some stickers and will be affixing these to the lamp posts around Pine. Meadows. If any resident knows of other areas where more stickers are needed, please let us know. When the pavement is dry, we will use the Parish Council stencil and spray paint but it is not suitable in wet and cold weather. Liz and Tom kirkellagrapevine@gmail.com

A Message from your Chairman - April 2020

Thank you to all the residents of Kirk Ella and West Ella. I know that you are abiding by the government's guidance to self-isolate, just going out for food and the recommended daily exercise. You are helping to make our area a safer place during this dreadful pandemic.

I wish to pass on to you some of the information which has been sent to the Parish Council, quoting from the Emergency Planning Department at County Hall. Any voluntary groups set up on social media channels are asked to register their details on www.beecan.org. This website is hosted by the HEY Smile Foundation and the aim is to build up a detailed database of organisations that can work alongside the ERYC helping those in need.

Several dedicated contact centres specifically for residents who don't have carers, family, friends, neighbours or local community groups to call upon are now up and running at locations across the East Riding. The nearest one to us is in Anlaby. This contact centre will have a dedicated number (01482) 393919 and will be open from 9.00am until 9.00pm Monday to Friday and from 9.00am until 6.00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. An email address is also available covid@eastriding.gov,uk. The ERYC is also planning to send a letter to every household in the East Riding detailing just how it is tackling this pandemic and what people can do to make sure they stay safe. The Parish Council will continue to keep you updated when possible.

Thank you for abiding by the government's advice and hoping you all take care, stay safe and remain in good health.

2020 Annual Report
The Annual Report was written in February 2020 then given to the printer in March, and printed at the end of that month. Because of "lock down" the delivers would not accept them and the Clerk has had to store them at her house until Friday 26 June, when the distributors accepted them. The delivery service has now resumed. Please accept our apologies for the delay. SEE PDF FILE Printed copies are available
