A Message from your Chairman
- September 2019
I have one very sad announcement, though many of you may already know, and that is the death of retired Councillor Marion Jackson. She had been ill for some time and had become more reliant on her family and then carers. She announced at the beginning of the year that she would be unable to continue and so would not be seeking re-election in May. She eventually went into a nursing home in June and died on August 1st (Yorkshire Day).
For those of you who have lived in the area for many years you may remember her as a teacher at Wolfreton School. I personally taught with her in 1962 when she was Miss Robson. She married Lew Jackson who was Head of the Geography department at Hessle High School and they had two sons, Ian and Michael, who later attended Wolfreton Senior School. She did a tremendous amount of raising money for various local charities. As a member of your Parish Council, Marion was never short of ideas including making white roses for our Yorkshire Day Coffee Morning and hand embroidered in gold thread the card that the Parish Council sent to H.M. The Queen, on the occasion of her 90th birthday. Marion is a great loss to the community.
Public minded parishioners have been most generous with their time in several different ways, to improve our community life and surroundings. We are fortunate in having many responsible residents who do everything possible to enhance the area by planting beautiful flower borders at the front of their gardens and creating special floral decorations round street signs such as can be seen at the corner of High Meadows, our grateful thanks to all those people. The various Neighbourhood Watch groups have been keeping us informed throughout the summer. One or two disturbing incidents have happened that I should make you aware of. Garden ornaments and planters have disappeared and even beautiful hanging baskets were stolen in the middle of the night from a house on Church Lane. This is most distressing to the owners and also deprives the community of an attractive environment.
The councillors will continue to serve the community
