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.

Traffic on the A164
A new roundabout is set to be built on one of the region's busiest roads. The £4.2m scheme will see an improved junction lay-out on the A164 between Kirk Ella and Swanland - see South Hunsley Ward Councillor's page for more details.

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. In the last few months East Riding of Yorkshire Council has issued 2 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 - March 2019

Spring is here and the villages are looking fresh and beautiful again. The snowdrops have been out for a while and now the daffodils are flourishing. The Parish Councillors would like to say a special thank you to all of you who have helped Councillor Elizabeth Robinson with the community bulbs that the Parish Council buys. We also want to say a special thank you to the public spirited people who put flowers round street names, and at the corner of roads and highways. Many of you also plant small flowers along the front borders of your properties and all these things contribute to making our villages so attractive.

We also value our history and heritage, as many of you have already commented on the new information display boards. There already were some at Willerby Square Car Park and one at the entrance to Hogg Lane in the centre of Kirk Ella. Now we have the two new ones situated at both ends of Church Lane, the Beverley Road end near the seat and the Packman Lane end close to the Churchyard wall. Both have been carefully assembled by Councillor David Robinson, who is producing the next one for the West Ella Preservation Society, to be erected in West Ella close to the new war memorial site. People who have already expressed an interest have been asking if they could obtain a copy. To do this, please contact Mandy, our Clerk. Councillor John Bailey has put the information, regarding the proposed new roundabout at the bottom of Riplingham Road, on to the West Ella notice board for anyone to read who has not already seen some notification about it. Our Clerk, Mandy, has also sent his recommendations to County Hall regarding the possibility of some drivers creating a “rat run” through our villages to avoid the current hold-ups at Willerby. He has asked questions of the planners and made positive suggestions.

Unfortunately, I must end by once again drawing your attention to the fact that crime is on the increase in our area, mainly in Anlaby but some disturbing incidents have occurred in Kirk Ella & West Ella. Thefts are mainly from garages, sheds and motorcars but there have been burglaries on West Ella Road and an attempted burglary on Annandale Road. Some offences have happened during daytime so please remain vigilant and report anything suspicious. You don’t need me to tell you the obvious precautions to take to make sure your property remains secure but data for our area can be acquired by visiting www.police.uk and following the “Find your Neighbourhood” link.

Take care and whilst you are walking in the village, see if you can spot the latest new blue plaque.


Best wishes,
Margaret Raymond
