Safe Places
Humberside Police has launched Safe Places across Hull and East Riding and North Lincolnshire. It is designed to help those with Dementia or other limiting problems to identify places and people who can be of assistance and can be trusted. They might be lost and not know where they are or how to get home or someone might have physical problems and need assistance. If you have a family member or friend or neighbour who has dementia or other limiting problems, please pass the word that help is at hand if someone goes missing. Learn more about Safe Places

Poppy Appeal Organiser
Willerby Kirk Ella and Anlaby branch of the Royal British Legion requires a Poppy Appeal Organiser (PAO). The position would suit a retired person who is looking to make a voluntary contribution to the branch, and improve what is already a successful part of the national organisation. The appeal is ongoing throughout the year, but the main event is the annual appeal which normally covers the period last Saturday in October to second Saturday in November.

The person appointed can expect to be somewhat busy during Sept., Oct. and Nov. Anyone interested please contact Jenny Harrison Tel. 653 846 (retiring PAO) or Dennis Woollons Tel. 650 907 (branch chairman). Both Jenny and Dennis are experienced PAOs' and will provide lots of support and advice in the organising and controlling of some 140 helpers. Past service in the armed forces is not a requiremen. This branch raised approx thirty five thousand pounds at this years appeal, and the Legion spends approx eighty million pounds every year assisting members and ex members of our armed forces and their families.

Salt Bins
With winter here see Locations of Salt Bins (pdf) - please note this salt is provided for residents to use on council maintained roads and paths only. When salt is spread it helps prevent the formation of ice and softens snow prior to its removal.

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.

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 kirkellagrapevine@gmail.com

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.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Raymond
Councillor Margaret Raymond
Chairman Kirk Ella & West Ella Parish Council
