A Message from your Chairman
– Willerby Post Office
Many of you have expressed great concern about
the closure of the Willerby Square Post Office, following the resignation
of the Postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office
use. Kirk Ella residents have already lost their own Kirk Ella Post
Office that was actually making a profit at the time. Parish Councillors,
local East Riding Councillors and even David Davis, our M. P. battled
to keep it open, even appealing on Look North local news, but regretfully
the Post Office Authorities were determined to close it. Now it is very
much hoped that the closure of Willerby Post Office will only be a temporary
measure as is stated in the letter for the public.
Alternative premises are needed as
quickly as possible so that they can be fitted out with the required
facilities needed to operate as a Post Office. It would be preferable
if these could be found at the Willerby Square or at least very close,
possibly in Main Street, Willerby. With this foremost in mind Mandy,
our Parish Clerk has written an excellent letter to Ms. Allison Wallace,
the Network Operations Manager in London, on behalf of the Parish Councillors.

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.
Liz and Tom
