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.

A Message from your Chairman
It is now the time of year when we have the dreary
weather, dark mornings and early dark evenings. Unfortunately this is
when we have to be on our guard and make sure that our properties and
possessions are secure. We continue to have many warnings from the Police,
the latest one being from Ian Dixon, Chief Inspector Community Policing
for the East Riding. As we live in a very desirable area we need to
remain extra careful. Crime is on the increase so take extra precautions.
We have had reports of not just cars being broken into because people
have left valuables on view but sheds and outbuildings and even thieves
removing windows to get inside a house. Details for our area can be
obtained by visiting www.policing.uk and following the ‘Find your
Neighbourhood’ link or www.humberside.police.uk.
Now for the good news. Numerous residents expressed great concern
when the Willerby Square Post Office was closed, especially the residents
of Kirk Ella who had already lost their own Post Office earlier. Parish
Councillors from both Kirk Ella and Willerby, local East Riding Councillors
especially Cllrs. Shaun Horton and Gary McMasters and our very busy
M.P. David Davis, all battled to keep it open, then, once it was closed,
their efforts continued relentlessly to find another suitable premise
with a shopkeeper willing and able to accommodate the postal services.
Well, as most of you now know, the story has a happy ending so to speak.
The new Post Office at Willerby Square has
been fitted out within “Wishes” shop and is operating from
February 6th. We do hope you will all be delighted and support it, as
the Anlaby Post Office staff have certainly been overworked since the
More good news, we have managed to obtain, at no cost, two notice
boards for parish notices. We are now waiting until the new
Highways Officer takes up his post to gain his approval for these to
be erected in prominent positions. Thus we hope to cover a greater area
for residents to keep up with our news.
Councillor Elizabeth Robinson, a most active environment councillor,
has asked me to thank all the residents who have cut back hedges and
branches so that pedestrians can use the footways with ease. She has
been especially concerned for those who push wheelchairs for the elderly
or prams with babies and young children. We hope we are a caring, considerate
community and she thanks you for your cooperation.
I know it is very
early but it will be the centenary of the ending of W.W.1 this
year and we would like your ideas on what act of remembrance
we should have or how we should respectfully mark the date.
Councillor Margaret Raymond
Chairman - Kirk Ella & West Ella Parish Council
