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

A Message from your Chairman - September 2018

Our summer break is over and everyone has returned refreshed and ready to work hard again. The Vice Chairman and I went to the Induction of The Reverend Ashley Carter our new Rector of the Benefice of Kirk Ella and (St. Mark’s) Willerby on Tuesday 4th September. I was asked to say a few words of welcome at the front of Kirk Ella Church, to Ashley, on behalf of our Parish Council. This was together with Mr. Church, Head of Kirk Ella Junior School, and two
representatives of Willerby.

I said that on behalf of the Kirk Ella and West Ella Parish Council we were delighted to welcome Ashley to the parish and that we hoped to involve him and the Church in some of our community activities. He has already come back to me with support for our suggestions for commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ending of WWI.

Councillor Stan Raymond has just put another blue plaque in place to add to our impressive number. He fixed it on the wall of Mr Oxley’s house, number 4 Church Lane. It is believed to be the oldest remaining house in the lane built about 1732, so Mr Oxley thought it was worth him purchasing the plaque for his property and the Parish Council readily agreed. If anyone else is living in a property of distinction and wishes to do likewise we would be delighted to hear from them and help them to find out the history connected with the building.

We are hoping to make Kirk Ella and West Ella even more noted as villages of Heritage Distinction if I can use those words. Thus four of your Parish Councillors, Elizabeth Robinson, Stan Raymond, David Robinson our Vice Chairman and myself, met during August on Pine Meadows corner, opposite Kirk Ella School to discuss how we could develop this as an area of special interest.

We plan to produce more information boards with interesting historic photos that you may not have seen previously. Many will relate to our Heritage Trail, which we know you are interested in by the sales of the book. I have just replenished stock at the Kirk Ella Newsagent as they contacted me earlier this week to say they had completely sold out.

Lastly, I have been asked to remind you of the location of the nearest defibrillators in the parish, though we seriously hope no one needs one. We have had correspondence from the Hull Golf Club to say there are two defibrillators on the site and the club is happy for the local community to access these in the event of an emergency. There is also another one at the Haltemprice Sports Centre available for use by the public in an emergency if needed and we would hope that there would be a trained first-aid assistant on site to help in a crisis.
