Local statics - Oct
2019 to March 2020 (pdf)
There have been further problems on St. Andrews School playing
field, for which the Antisocial Behaviour Team have been
contacted. On previous occasions there has been damage to
the Cycle Shelter, football nets, and youngsters have been
on the School roof. If the youngsters are spotted on the
school field, the local Police will be advised and the Police
do have a key for access. Last year the trespassers were
caught after a resident took photos and the school secretary
was able to identify some as past pupils. The Police should
be made aware of trespass immediately using 101.
We appeal to Parents to ask their children not to venture
on the School Field and that they can only be on the field,
if they are being supervised by an adult. It is appreciated
that some of the youngsters might not be local, however,
Parents must make their children aware they must not be
encouraged by their friends, who might not live in the area,
to trespass. Your cooperation would be appreciated.
You are encouraged to discuss with your neighbours/friends
with children, to ensure trespassing on School Grounds and
Buildings is avoided. The Council and Police only incur
more expense unnecessarily.

FREE Bespoke Cycle Training Offer
During the lock down, 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
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.
SCAM - Amazon
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 ‘firstname.lastname@example.org.
The recipient is instructed to click on a link in order to apply,
which has been identified as mal ware. 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!

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/

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 current COVID-19 outbreak, the Parish Council will not
be holding meetings until further notice
from your Chairman - July 2020
By now everyone should have received our 2020 Annual
Report informing you of the work that was done by the Parish Council
during last year. The report was completed in February, sent to the
printers in March and ready for distribution early April but unfortunately
due to the virus was held up until July. If you have not received yours
please let Mandy, our Clerk or myself know.
We have been kept very busy despite being in lock down. Planning issues
continue to need our attention. Concern has been expressed over the
South Ella School site where Lovell, the builders, would like to build
approximately 240 new residences.
After the first weekend when lock down restrictions were eased, litter
problems occurred on King George playing field. As germs can be passed
in litter, it should be a top priority to dispose of it in the bins
provided or take it home. Once we can resume our Parish Council meetings,
litter bins, even though expensive, must be on our agenda.
Despite the Coronavirus, Mandy our Clerk and Financial Officer managed
to make arrangements to have the Parish Council accounts audited. I
received a letter from the auditor praising the efficient way in which
the accounts were presented. The closing sentence was, and here I quote
”The parishioners of Kirk Ella & West Ella can be assured
that such dedication is a “hallmark” of security in the
utilization of Public Funding”.
Now I wish to ask you for information. Does anyone know who the spare
land, in front of the electric substation, at Kirk Ella School belongs
to? The Parish Council has paid for it to be tidied up because it is
a prominent “eye sore” but it really needs a permanent solution
and that obviously cannot be agreed without the consent of the owner.
There is also a large tree on site that is causing some problems and

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
