Police Newsletters and Band recruitment

 Please find links to the August Police newsletters for Pocklington and Market Weighton areas

Pocklington Newsletter

Market Weighton Newsletter

The Police are also recruiting for new members of the Police Band if anyone is interested, see their recruitment poster here

Union Flag

 A concerned citizen wrote to me recently, and worth noting;

Union Flag

It is heartwarming to see so many people flying the union flag at their homes or business premises.

However, in a short drive from Market Weighton to Bielby, there are four examples of the union flag being displayed upside down.

(Presumably, the upside down display of the flag is unintentional rather than a distress signal or an intended insult to the country.)

Great to see the flag flying, but it would be even better if the flag is displayed correctly.

The thick white band at the flag pole or hanging end should be at the top

Thanks Ian Ross for the astute observations

Now that most COVID restrictions have been lifted, there will be a St Giles's Day Festival Communion on Wednesday 1st September at 7.30 pm, followed by refreshments.

The day is also the seventh anniversary of Stephen's licensing as our Rector. (How time flies!)

Looking forward to seeing folks again if they can make it.

Police Newsletter, planning application and the New Countryside code

  • Planning Application for 2 storey and single storey extension at Ivy House, details can be seen and comments made via the link here.
  • Countryside Code refresh; As we know, covid lock downs have seen an increase in the number of visitors to the countryside and to our public rights of way network. 
    • Overall, this has been a positive thing and essential for our community’s health and wellbeing however it has also brought some challenges, such as trespass, dogs out of control and littering. 
    • You may have seen the refreshed Countryside Code being promoted since its launch in April and it may be a good time to promote the Code in the run up to the school holidays and increased visitor numbers. 
    • Here is a link to a brief summary of the Code, and here a link to more detailed government website for users and landowners
