Ella Village Shop
As shops begin to open again
please remember the local ones that have gone out of their
way to take orders and deliver to your door throughout the
recent crisis. Please continue to support them.
The local owner of Kirk Ella News, for the past 25 years,
very much hopes to keep the shop as a traditional village
shop (near The Wheatsheaf) in the heart of Kirk Ella village
when the current tenant leaves. Should you have any ideas
for this business please call the owner for a chat on 0783

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 ‘email@example.com.
The recipient is instructed to click on a link in order to apply,
which has been identified as malware. 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!

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

are asked to register their details on www.beecan.org. This website
