COVID 19 Vaccine Scam Text
We have been informed about a new scam that is being circulated, but
looks very believable. It starts with a text, seemingly from the NHS
saying that you are now eligible to apply for the new vaccine and to
click on the link to apply. The link takes you to a website, which looks
genuine and asks the user to complete a form asking for the following
Date of Birth
Payment card details
Proof of address
This should automatically ring alarm bells, as we all know, the vaccine
Do NOT click on links in unknown texts - always check it first
NEVER give out your personal details.
With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types
of scam attempts are likely to continue as fraudsters look to take advantage
of the rollout.
Cold calls regarding the vaccine are also beginning to take place.
If you, or anyone you know, have been affected by this fraud or any
other scam, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 1232040 or visiting

Information update on Services
This contains which services are affected during the current
emergency and has been issued to all Parish Councillors - SEE
Tackling Anti Social Behaviour
The team has responsibility for the Safe and Sound
Grant, a scheme to help residents stay safe in their own home. It is
here to help those who suffer from anti social behaviour and our website
provides helpful information on anti social behaviour and what can be
done to tackle it: http://www2.eastriding.gov.uk/living/crime-and-community-safety/anti-social-behaviour/
We rely on information that residents pass on and we encourage you to
use our website and report anti social behaviour to Humberside Police
on 101 or your Anti Social Behaviour team on 01482 396 380.
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
to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Parish Council will not be holding
meetings until further notice
from your Chairman - December 2020
I thought you would like an update to know that in spite
of restrictions your Parish Council members are still working hard.
Covid has made it very difficult to deal with new suggestions and ideas
but I will update you on what has happened so far.
1) Your footway lighting bill has been paid so you will
not be walking in the dark during the winter!
2) The planning has gone through, with a few adjustments, for South
Ella Way location so 224 new properties will be built on the old school
3) The new notice boards that we ordered have been delivered and erected.
They are of an excellent quality as requested for Kirk Ella. L &
K Warcup Construction erected them for us. The old ones, which we begged
from Wolfreton School when it was demolished, were no longer fit for
4) We have made good use of the grant, to commemorate the 75 years since
the end of WWII, that we were successful in obtaining from the E.R.Y.C.
We used it to purchase a new seat which is now at the corner of Church
Lane near the historical information board. It supplements the Church
memorial to those who gave their lives for us on active service during
the war so it was right that the position was agreed with the British
5) Councillors are determined that you should not miss out on the village
Christmas lights this year. They were erected and checked by Lighting
& Signs Limited at the end of November and should be on until the
New Year. We regret that because of the corona virus we are unable to
have the usual very popular switch on with the school children’s
choir but I am sure you will understand.
6) Councillor Doreen Kaye has been in communication with The Wheatsheaf
Public House and in spite of it being closed because of restrictions
the management has agreed to the village Christmas tree being placed
in its usual position. It was ordered some time ago and you will see
it complete with lights from November 30th.
7) Councillors and our Clerk have received much paperwork during the
lockdown and time of restrictions and are available to talk to you over
the telephone if you need advice during this difficult period. You can
access information about a range of support at www.eastriding.gov.uk/3stepstosafety.
8) Planning applications continue to be reviewed by Councillors throughout
lockdown and comments reported back to the E.R.Y.C. planning department
at County Hall.
9) No doubt many of you will have received the Christmas edition of
The Journal, if not you can do as I did and purchase one from Waitrose
supermarket. You will be interested to know that it has a double page
article on the Kirk Ella and West Ella Heritage Trail, with a photograph
of our latest plaque being put up at the beginning of the year. Because
of the publication in The Journal, the Heritage Trail booklet has been
in great demand again all proceeds of which go to the Parish Council

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
