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 requirement. This branch raised approximate thirty five thousand pounds at this years appeal, and the Legion spends approximate eighty million pounds every year assisting members and ex members of our armed forces and their families.

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

A Message from your Chairman

Our new councillor is Robert Skinner and he lives at 72 Mill Lane, Kirk Ella. He is a Chartered Engineer having previously been in local government and for the past ten years he has been the University Mechanical Engineer for the University of Hull. We are confident he will be a great asset and a hard worker on the Council. The other members of our Council remain the same.

Election of Officers at our Annual Council Meeting as follows:-

Chairman – Councillor Margaret Raymond
Vice Chairman – Councillor David Robinson
Responsible Finance Officer – Mandy Pickering, our Parish Clerk
Finance Working Group – Cllrs. Stan Raymond, David Robinson, Marion Jackson
Advisory Planning Officer – Councillor Doreen Kaye
Planning Group Members
Cllrs. John Bailey, Margaret Raymond, David Robinson
Publicity Officer and Assistant – Cllrs. Margaret Raymond and Doreen Kaye
Responsible Environment Councillors – Elizabeth Robinson and John Bailey

Councillor Shaun Horton is both a Parish Councillor and an elected East Riding Councillor therefore our very knowledgeable and valuable contact with the authority.

We also had our Annual Parish Meeting on 23rd May to which all residents of our two villages received an invitation in our recent Annual Report. It took place on the same evening as a Kirk Ella School Governors Meeting hence we were able to occupy a room in the school free of charge. Once again, our grateful thanks to Mr Church, Headmaster of St. Andrew’s School for allowing the use of a room in the premises.

The Police have asked us to please note and to inform you that 50% of all burglaries reported in the East Riding are through insecure doors or windows. Likewise, over 50% of cars broken into are insecure or have items of value on display. As they say LOCK IT OR LOSE IT.

Please take care and best wishes for a happy summer.
Margaret Raymond
