Seated Area Refreshed & Tidied Up

We have completed tidying up the area opposite the church so we have a lovely space for anyone to relax and hopefully brighten the village up.

Thanks to Richard & Matt Coe for clearing the area and laying the flagstones and thanks to East Riding Council for providing the grant funding to do this.



Thank you and the team for all your hard work, the space looks lovely and we look forward to relaxing in the space.

Miscellaneous News

  • Communications with ERYC 

East Riding council are seeking consultation on how they communicate with residents.

It seeks to understand how we wish to receive communication to and from them. Ironically, it is primarily a digital questionnaire so if you wish to comment or offer any views or advice have a look at their leaflet and see the link on there.  Link to leaflet

The consultation questionnaire is available on the council’s website and customers can also request a paper copy, which they can pick up from one of the council’s customer service centres or libraries throughout the region.

Paper copies of it can also be requested by calling (01482) 393939.

  • Be a Local Hero

ERYC are seeking distributors of LFT kits within their local communities;

We are asking for your support in keeping our communities safe this autumn, particularly now many of us are returning to local leisure and social activities, back at school or returning to the workplace.

We need trusted community voices and groups within the East Riding to further promote the use of rapid Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) to all of our residents, young and old, especially those that may not access tests easily otherwise.

Be a local Hero....

If you would be willing to become a distributor or collection point for LFT kits for home use in your area, please get in touch with our team:

If anyone does become a hero, let me know ( and I'll put a notice on the bus stop noticeboard and onto the blog too.
