Kirk Ella Relief
Open to all residents in Kirk Ella parish
is a little known charity that was set up many years ago to help
the poor of the parish in times of extreme hardship.
Quite small amounts of money are available
on an annual basis and may be payable to applicants who think
they could qualify for acceptance. Contact the Parish Clerk.
Graffiti Cleaning packs are available from ERYC Safe Communities.
NW Coordinators can apply for a pack, and training in their use.
