195 Bus Service

Paul has sent an email from the council,
Please find attached the final timetable for the 195 bus service. It has now been registered to start on Monday 28th April 2014. I have tried to reflect the comments from the consultation in the final timetable where possible. More time has been allowed to operate the route between Bielby and Pocklington via Allerthorpe and Thornton which was raised by a number of people in the consultation. You will see that some journeys are finishing/starting at Piccadilly and Merchantgate rather than Station Road. This is to comply with EU legislation on the length of bus journeys! I would like to thank everyone for their input into the process.  Chris
Here is a link to the bus timetable.

Communal Garden TV Project

Sam has received an email regarding a communal garden TV project.

Hi There!  
We are currently developing a new primetime gardening series with a working title ‘Garden Republic’ for one of the UK’s major broadcasters and wanted to send you the information in case you may be interested.
The series will follow a group of neighbouring home-owners who will each expand their individual gardens by banishing fences to allow for one large communal garden, to be shared by the neighbours. We hope the residents will work together to create a space that none of them could ever dream of owning individually and, with the help of gardening experts, transform their small plots into a beautiful space the whole community can enjoy... a real life Garden of Eden!!
The home-owners will be guided, helped and mentored by one of Britain’s biggest gardening names, working together to decide on what their perfect garden will include – from creating a stunning rose garden, to tending chickens, growing a fruit orchard , or constructing a giant children’s play area. The series will be a celebration of both gardening and good old British community spirit!
We are looking for a group of neighbours (with back gardens) to take part in the series and would really appreciate it if you could send out our flyer to your database /newsletter.
I have attached a flyer with all the contact details in regards to the show, and would love to hear any thoughts you have on the project!
Thanks very much for all your help, I really appreciate it,
Felicity Rankin

I have copied the information in the flyer below.

We are looking to make the ultimate back garden for a group of neighbours who would be willing to transform their own back gardens into an amazing communal space.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a seasoned gardener or a horticultural novice – we have a team of experts who will advise and help you to create your very own Garden of Eden.

Scams awareness month
The Citizens Advice Bureau is joining forces with the Trading Standards Institute to launch a campaign to help ordinary people fight back by helping them spot and stop scams.
Con-artists are coming up with new ways to prey on people, from landlords renting out non-existent flats to bogus job offers and training opportunities. It’s easy to get scammed if you don’t know the signs.
There are hundreds of scams, including fake lotteries and prize draws, bogus health cures, dodgy
investment schemes, pyramid selling, and phishing. It is estimated that nearly half the people in the UK have been targeted and £3.5 billion lost to scams every year. During May, the Citizens Advice Bureau will provide advice and information about how to spot a scam, to give residents the confidence toreport these criminals and stop the scams. New scams appear as morepeople become aware of them and as criminals try to
keep one step ahead. To find out more, contact Matthew Cawley, consumer empowerment partnership officer, Hull and East Riding CAB on (01262) 605644 or matthew.cawley@hulleastridingcab.org.uk
Bogus callers
In the first two weeks of April alone, East Riding residents lost thousands of
pounds to deceitful bogus workmen, claiming they can offer them a service like
re-pointing roof tiles, plumbing repairs or maintenance work for cash, when they
actually do no work or a very poor job at an inflated price.
We would all like to think that people would not pressure an already vulnerable
person into buying an over-inflated service on their own doorstep. But sadly this
is one of the oldest tricks in the book for rogue traders to get quick cash. The
majority of East Riding victims are older and vulnerable residents. Victims quite
often feel ashamed or embarrassed that they were tricked into taking a service
they did not need and fell for the ‘hard sell’.
The police are clamping down on this type of crime. Chief Inspector James
Glansfield said: “Generally speaking, it is very rare for genuine traders to cold
call. If they do, they must:
give seven days’ cancellation notice
give a written quotation
give a contact telephone number and, more importantly, a contact address.
He added: “No money should be exchanged prior to the work being carried
out. If the tradesperson offers to take you to the bank, threatens, intimidates
or is aggressive towards you, you should call the police immediately.”
Loan scam warning
Trading standards officers warn that local people are being targeted by bogus
loan operators trying to con them out of hundreds of pounds. Some loan firms
are targeting those with a poor credit rating who have been searching online for
a loan. Firms are contacting potential customers by text, email or cold call and
misleading them into handing over money upfront for loans that are never
The officers report that this is a new type of scam nationally and there are
reports of applicants in the East Riding paying hundreds of pounds by bank
transfer to get a loan quickly, but then receiving nothing in return. Bogus firms
are not authorised to provide credit services and customers who use them have
little or no chance of getting their money back when they make an upfront
payment for a loan.
Trading standards advice to those looking for a loan is to always check out loan
firms by looking online at www.fca.org.uk or by calling 0800 111 6768.

Bulk oil buying
Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council (HWRCC), working with East
Riding of Yorkshire Council, has completed five monthly bulk oil purchasing
rounds for this county-wide scheme. Anyone can benefit from cheaper heating
oil in East Yorkshire by becoming a member. Membership, normally £20 for a
household, is free to the first 200 members so there is still a chance to join the
scheme for nothing and see if you can save money on buying heating oil.
Each month, HWRCC collates the quantity ordered by members and rings six
suppliers to get their best price. The minimum quantity is 500 litres and the
price is the same irrespective of quantity ordered. In April, over 20,000 litres
was ordered, giving a 7.52p per litre saving for members against the highest price
quoted for a single 500 litre order - the price negotiated was 50.43p + VAT.
Membership forms are available at www.hwrcc.org.uk at the bottom of the
scheme’s page, or contact them on (01430) 430904 or email oil@hwrcc.org.uk
HWRCC is also looking for village co-ordinators for the scheme, to collate
orders from members in their village and email them on the order deadline date.
Coordinators help promote the scheme in their village using the leaflets provided
– in return they get free membership.
HWRCC is working with Hull and East Yorkshire Credit Union to help residents
who find it hard to buy oil because of high up-front costs. For a confidential chat,
contact Peter Hirschfeld, rural energy advice officer on (01430) 434047.
Bulk energy purchase
East Riding residents can once again save money on their gas and electricity bills
through YORSwitch, as registration is open to 10 June. The collective switching
scheme has already saved residents £175,000. Average savings are increasing as
collective switching becomes more popular with both consumers and suppliers.
The scheme works by gathering together people who are interested in finding
out if they can save money on their energy bills. YORSwitch organises an auction
for energy suppliers and the supplier providing the cheapest tariff will send an
offer to all registrants. The offer is obligation-free and registrants do not have to
switch. However, for those who do switch, YORSwitch takes care of the whole
process and ensures that residents will not be without energy during the switch.
Residents can register for free and find out more information at
www.eastriding.gov.uk/yorswitch. All the information required to register can be
found on your latest energy bill. If residents do not have access to the internet,
they can visit their local customer service centre or call (01482) 393939.

West Wolds Radio Due 2015


The sound of Pocklington and surrounding villages including Bielby is to hit the airwaves with the launch of the area’s own community radio station.
The go-ahead has been given for West Wolds Radio, a dedicated service for the Pocklington area, which will be staffed by volunteers and provide really local programming every day.
The decision by the broadcasting regulator, Ofcom, to award West Wolds Radio Ltd a five-year licence follows a bid which was submitted by a group of local people in 2013.
The station, which will go on the air early in  2015, will broadcast on FM, online and via mobiles, providing daily local output of news, music, information and features, with an emphasis on encouraging local groups to become involved.
Community radio, which was first launched by the Government in 2005, is aimed at specific areas or interest groups, and  involving local people of all ages. The services aim to provide them with skills and building their confidence to play a bigger part in their area. By design, each community station is assigned an FM transmitter to broadcast to a limited radius. Ofcom advertised licences for community radio services in Yorkshire in 2013, as there are only three currently operating in Hull and the East Riding in particular.
Founder and station manager, Stuart Cocker says: “This is really exciting, a one-off opportunity to bring local media back into Pocklington and deliver a dedicated service. I’m so thrilled we have been given the opportunity of launching something brand new. We’ve used the experience of providing really local broadcasting elsewhere to shape the West Wolds Radio service into an essential part of local life. We consulted with local people and groups before submitting our application and we are delighted that the hope has become reality.”
Stuart adds: “The next step is to start recruiting members, talk to businesses about supporting the station, and begin equipping the studios which will be based just outside the town centre. In other words, the hard work begins now.”
More details about the volunteering, programming and commercial opportunities through West Wolds Radio will be announced in due course. In the meantime, email: info@westwoldsradio.co.uk or call: 07949 158786.
