Inn Nights at the Village Hall. Saturday, 18th October Saturday, 22nd November Saturday, 20th December Thursday, 4th September – the bar will open after the meeting. Please see next item. Everingham Carrs Wind Farm Meeting Village Hall, Thur 4th Sept 7.30pm As you may be aware, our village is threatened by a large industrial windfarm development to the south of the village. We understand the current intention is four or five 110m high wind turbines. These will dwarf the scale of the current individual farm wind turbines around the village and are of a size similar to those on the Wolds. This is a massive industrial energy development in the wrong place and it threatens the landscape and heritage qualities of our conservation village. There is also a potential noise threat that may affect the whole village so please do not think this does not concern you simply because you will not see the turbines from your property. The meeting is being held to present to you what is currently known about the development and to explain the work that has already been carried out to prepare a forceful and professional objection to what is likely to be an imminent planning application by the developers. There is a newly formed Everingham Conservation Group that has the aim of ensuring this development does not happen. The Group will welcome involvement from anyone in Everingham or Harswell, particularly those with any technical or professional skills that may assist the group. Whether you are supportive of wind energy or not, we would be very grateful for your attendance in order to measure the strength of feeling from all residents of Everingham and Harswell. It would be much appreciated if you could take the time to attend.

25th Bielby Produce Show 2014

25th Bielby Produce Show

Richard and I would like to thank the show committee for their very kind gesture on Saturday when they presented us with lovely presents for 25 years on the Produce Show Committee. It was totally unexpected but very much appreciated. It sounds a long time but I don’t think we would do it if we didn’t enjoy it.

However, it is very much a team effort and we cant let it go unsaid that various different people over the years have played a big part in the show, not least Rob and Margaret who started the show along with John and Barbara Peel, Julie Gardham and Jenny Atkin. Along with our present committee, Janet, Graham, Sara, Jenny, Peter, Alex and Melanie and all the people who come along and help put up marques, steward, make tea, etc it would not be possible and most of all without all of the people in the village who continue to support the show by entering such wonderful things every year, it never ceases to amaze us and it is down to all of this that the show has kept going for twenty five years, What a great achievement for such a small village!

Christine and Richard

Of Clocks and wild flowers
As you can see work on the clock faces in the Church is complete. The final cost of this work was £2514.
May we, the PCC, take this opportunity to thank all who made donations or supported our many fund raising events.
I am sure you agree it was worth all the hard work!

You may wonder why the centre section of the Church grounds is not being cut.
This is because we are attempting to develop a wildflower meadow. We started last year spreading hay, from an established wildflower meadow, over the ground to allow seed to set and also scattered thousands of Yellow Rattle seed.
Spring this year and seeds of wild flowers from the National Trust collection were sown and throughout the year these plants have been introduced into the area.
 Among the varieties are Ox-eyed Daisies, Foxgloves, Pink Campion, Red Clover, Corn cockle, Corn flowers and poppies. These should, hopefully, become more established next year.
In early September we will cut the grass down and let it lie to allow seed to fall on the ground. After this has happened the hay will be available to anyone willing to collect it for pet little etc.
Please check with Mike Rogers in September when this will be ready for collection.
Mike has also mown a pathway through and set up a seat for those wishing to have a wonder through and sit a while. Please feel free to have a look, all we ask is you respect this is a Church Ground and avoid the graves and remove any litter.
Thank you
The St Everilda’s Church PCC

Everingham and Harswell Parish Council
Minutes of the meeting held on 9.7.14 in the Village Hall, Everingham
1.      Present: Councillors Tom Featherby (Chairman); Marcia Call; Patricia Coole; and Alison Thompson. Clerk to the Council Anthony Stocking.
2.      Councillor Edward Pettifer was absent and Councillors Bryn James and Rachel Glossop tendered their apologies.
3.      Three residents were present: Chris and Jane Berridge and Patrick Wilkinson
4.      Councillors agreed the correctness of the 14 May 2014 meeting’s minutes.
5.      No Councillor declared a pecuniary or non-pecuniary interest in any agenda item.
6.      Everingham Wind Farm:
Since the May meeting more facts have been found about the wind farm that may be erected on land between Everingham and Harswell. Residents have formed an action group to oppose the proposal and is gathering information for use should a planning application be submitted. The group has engaged an advisor who has experience in preparing submissions in support of applications to erect commercial wind farms.
Three of its members addressed the meeting in order to communicate their objectives and current findings. Councillors received insight into the group’s investigations. The group sought to identify the Parish Council’s stance respecting any planning application.
TF stated that because three Councillors were absent it was not feasible for an in-depth discussion to take place using the information put forward by the Group. Such will take place in September. No application has been submitted to ERYC yet and until the Council is informed officially it is inappropriate for the Council to comment.
TF assured the representatives of the Group that a decision will be taken in the light of the facts presented by the developer and stated that the Council will welcome further information from the Group.
The representatives emphasised that the Group is not anti-wind farm per se but their resistance is based on the premise that the position of the site is inappropriate and too small for the proposed number of turbines.
7.      Matters arising:
7.1              There was nothing to discuss on the subject of heavy goods vehicle traffic through the villages but the item will be on the next meeting’s agenda.
A speed survey taken on 01 July between 15h30 and 17h00 by local PCSO Cundiff revealed that 75 vehicles passed through Everingham at an average speed of 28.1mph. Three cars would have received a speeding ticket, with one travelling at 40mph.
AS will thank PCSO Cundiff for his work and ask him to carry out a survey from 06h00 on a workday morning. 
No discussion took place regarding involving the Community Partnership in attempts to reduce HGV traffic through the villages and the matter will be carried over to the September meeting.
7.2              The materials needed to renovate the telephone box have been received and a provisional date for work to begin has been set by AT for early September.
7.3              Information has been passed to AS to the effect that the ‘bus shelter was built by Bernard Whatling using money raised by public subscription. It is therefore the property of Everingham. AS will find out if cover for damage etc. is provided by the Council’s insurance policy.
7.4              No action has taken place regarding ascertaining the location and direction of culverts in Everingham. However, TF continues to liaise with Rob Brown at ERYC Highways Department
7.5              A bridge along pathway 8 needs attention. RG did not attend the meeting but will forward details to AS.
7.6              MC and PC will check on work carried out by Streetscene operatives and report to the September meeting. 
7.7              The redundant power pole on Thorpe le Street Road is still in place. AS awaits a response from Northern PowerGrid regarding the unsightly replacement.
7.8              The wind farm in land adjacent to Everingham Hall is covered by minute 6.1.
7.9              ERYC Lighting Department has undertaken an inspection of the parish lighting. Councillors had previously agreed to the replacement of the existing lanterns by more efficient units. An inspection has shown that four pole brackets require replacing. These will be supplied free of charge by ERYC but there be a charge to re-install the electricity supply of £800 plus VAT. Councillors are unhappy with this charge. AS will convey their dismay to ERYC and press for a reduction and/or a delay in payment.
7.10          AS will obtain details of a defibrillator located at Melbourne.
8.      Emergency Plan:
8.1              BJ was unable to attend the meeting and discussion on the Emergency Plan will take place at the September meeting.
9.      Finance:
9.1              AS submitted the up-to-date accounts. MC proposed and PC seconded a motion for their approval. This was given and they were signed by TF. The balance of £5480.36 agrees with the bank statement.
9.2              AS asked for approval to pay £44.26 being the Council’s portion of the SLCC annual subscription. This was given; proposed AT and seconded MC.
10.  Planning:
10.1          A building erected in the grounds of Elleker House is being investigated by ERYC. It is thought to comprise five stables, each some ten feet square.
10.2          Information supplied to AS by the Enforcement Officer is that conditions of planning approval for the Everingham Stud continue to be flouted and that Ms. L Shuttleworth is not responding to his queries. Unless positive action is seen to take place ERYC will take steps to enforce its legal powers.
11.  Principal correspondence
11.1          May and June bank statements.
11.2          Information on the redundant power pole and the installed replacement.

'Broadband East Riding' Project Update - Phase II & III Roll-out Plans Announced

This email is being sent to all Parish Councils in the East Riding of Yorkshire to provide an update on the delivery of the ‘Broadband East Riding’ project.  We would kindly ask Parish Clerks to please bring this email and the attached press release to the attention of your Parish Council(s) for their information. 
The second and third roll-out phases of the project have now been announced, with work commencing this month and running into the New Year.  The attached press release outlines the BT exchanges that are included in plans for these two phases. The first phase of the project roll-out, announced earlier this year, is now in progress with upgrades due to start going ‘live’ shortly.
Further announcements will be made as the upgrades go live in each area.  More information, including maps of the project area and the roll-out phases announced to date, are available on the project website at Further updates regarding subsequent phases of the roll-out will be issued as soon as details are finalised.
The ‘Broadband East Riding’ project is part of the national broadband programme. The project will make superfast broadband (of speeds more than 24Mbps) available to over 42,000 homes and businesses in the East Riding by December 2015. In addition, the project aims to ensure that the whole of the project area will have access to broadband speeds of at least 2Mbps by the same date.  Areas covered by proposed commercial roll-out plans are not included in the project. Whilst it is not possible to guarantee that every location in the project area will gain access to improved broadband services, the boost to the infrastructure will bring new opportunities for many businesses, organisations and residents across the East Riding. 
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is also running a free business support programme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which aims to help businesses turn faster broadband speeds into business growth.
The assistance of Parish Councils in helping to raise awareness of the project roll-out in their communities would be greatly appreciated, for example by displaying posters on parish noticeboards and in community buildings, or including an article in a parish newsletter or community website. The Broadband East Riding project team is happy to provide further information to parish councils accordingly – please do not hesitate to get in touch.
With best regards,
Steve Howdle, Rural Development Officer
