History Research Help Requested
Gordon Stephenson is researching the Wilson family of Tranby Croft between 1876 and 1944, and would be grateful if anyone with connections to the building in terms of ancestry, stories or memorabilia would contact me. I am interested in all who played a part in life at the big house, from domestic servants and gardeners through to the Wilsons themselves. SEE pdf for info & contact 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. 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 - February 2021

Unfortunately your Parish Council has not been able to meet so far this year as is would be against government lockdown rules. However, routine work has continued via telephone and email. We are in constant communication with our first-rate Clerk who keeps us informed of all the latest government regulations. We will restart our monthly meetings when we are permitted to do so meanwhile Councillor Doreen Kaye and I have been working on the next Parish Annual Report. As soon as it is completed and the printers are open for business it will be delivered to them. One very important piece of information that we are not able to include in it at the moment is the date of our Annual Parish Meeting as all bookings for halls in this area are closed at the present time. We may have to ask you to watch the parish notice boards at the end of April for a date in May.

The local Police send crime figures to us on a regular basis. The latest ones inform us that there were 8 attempted burglaries across Willerby and Kirk Ella at the beginning of this year. Three of the eight were failed attempts; the others were mostly break-ins to outbuildings, sheds and garages. There were also reports of two shop thefts in our area. Two offenders were arrested and charged with multiple offences thus reports have now significantly decreased.

We are all keen to have the vaccination and some of us may have already had our first one and will be waiting for the second dose. Whilst anxious, please be aware of the Covid-19 scam which is highly believable. It starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the vaccine and to click on the link in the text message. It follows that the user is led to a web page and asked to complete some details to apply for the vaccine. It might even say – NHS: We have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine. The details asked for are as follows: Name, Address, Date of Birth, Proof of Address and Card Payment Details.

The Police message is NEVER give out your personal details. Police have also had reports of scammers asking people to pay for the vaccine over the phone.

Lastly, I would like to leave you with this thought, what a wonderful man Captain Sir Tom Moore was. His daughter has suggested that people might like to plant a tree in his memory. As your Parish Council, perhaps we should consider it.

Stay safe
Margaret Raymond
