Road Closure Notice
A Message from your Chairman
I would like to begin by thanking Councillor Doreen Kaye and Mandy Pickering, our Parish Clerk, for the tremendous amount of hard work that they put in to organise our Christmas festivities. They selected new lights to decorate the block of shops at the centre of the village and contacted the electrician to fix them in place. They approached the manager of The Wheatsheaf Public House for permission to erect the Christmas tree near the entrance porch before purchasing the appropriate size. Our grateful thanks to the management. The electrician put the lights on the tree and everything was checked for public safety.
Kirk Ella Junior School was contacted by Doreen and Mandy and a children's’ choir came to sing carols at the official switch on of the lights. What a delight the children were. Our thanks go to Mr Church, Head teacher, who was present with the choir, and to all the parents and grandparents who came to enjoy the occasion. Mandy supplied a tin of Christmas treats for the participants.
Wolfreton Senior School was also contacted and the Head Girl and Head Boy came to do the honours – the actual switch on of the lights. A small gift was presented to each, by Doreen, for giving up their time on a Saturday so near to Christmas. They were accompanied by the school Publicity Officer who came to take photographs for the school and to be forwarded to the Hull Daily Mail.
Mandy had also to arrange for the tree and lights to be safely dismantled and the tree disposed of. Between them they worked very hard to organise the festivities. Thank you.
Now may I wish all the residents of West Ella and Kirk Ella a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year. Best wishes for 2017.
Thank you once again for taking the time and interest to log on.
