Fraud comes in many different forms, and
absolutely anyone can become a victim.
Fraudsters aim to trick individuals into giving away cash, bank
details or other personal information; this is done by them contacting
thousands of random people. www.fraudwatch.org.uk
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 you can
identify a dog walker who does not clean up, with the time and
place, you 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 anyone 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.

editor of our annual report. Doreen was also a past member
of Kirk Ella Preservation Society and was passionate about
conserving the appearance and heritage of the community
