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

  • 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.

Grant Obtained to Tidy up Seating Area Opposite Church

 Hi all,

We applied for and have been successful in obtaining a grant from the Do It for East Yorkshire Community Grant to tidy up the area opposite the church (see photos). 



We will take the hedge down, replace the flagstones, put in a new bench and some flower boxes and generally tidy the area up and make a nice place for anybody to have a sit down. As soon as we receive some of the grant we will get started on the work.

Paul

Blog Emails

 Hi Everyone,

Just to let you know that the blog emails that have always been sent by Google feedburner are stopping. Google will no longer be offering this service and are switching off the emails sometime in July.

We have transferred emails over to a new system called follow.it which is free and sends emails with the blog posts on. 

That is why you may have noticed that you are currently getting emails from Google and follow.it.

You may need to confirm the follow.it emails and we also have a sign up button on the village website if you find that you have not been getting emails from follow.it or you have changed your email since you last signed up or you were never signed up in the first place. 

Please let me know if you encounter any issues at ridsdalesara @gmail.com.

Thank you.

Queens Platinum Jubilee

 The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend 2022

To celebrate this special event the Parish Meeting are calling for volunteers of anyone who may want to help organise or offer resources, venue or creative ideas know of your interest in forming an action group/committee, contact either the secretary, Graham Tew (graham@thetews.co.uk) or the chair, Paul Ward (pm242@btinternet.com).

There are several opportunities, such as the beacon network, the big lunch, a street party or whatever we think would be a suitable way for us to come together and celebrate this amazing achievement.

The communication reads;

In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 when Her Majesty was 25 years old.

An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate the historic milestone. Across the four days the celebrations will include public events and community activities, as well as national moments of reflections on The Queen’s 70 years of service.

Thursday 2nd June

  • The Queen’s Birthday Parade (Trooping the Colour)
  • Platinum Jubilee Beacons: The United Kingdom’s long tradition of celebrating Royal Jubilees, Weddings and Coronations with the lighting of beacons will be continued to mark the Platinum Jubilee. Beacons will be lit throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories. (resources for building beacons are available from parish secretary) and at www.queensjubileebeacons.com
    • For the first time, beacons will also be lit in each of the capital cities of the Commonwealth countries to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Friday 3rd June

  • Service of Thanksgiving: A Service of Thanksgiving for The Queen’s reign will be held at St Paul’s Cathedral. Further events will be announced in due course.

Saturday 4th June

  • The Derby at Epsom Downs: Her Majesty The Queen will attend the Derby at Epsom Downs.
  • Platinum Party at the Palace: The BBC will stage and broadcast a special live concert from Buckingham Palace.

Sunday 5th June

  • The Big Jubilee Lunch: Every year since the idea began in 2009 The Big Lunch has encouraged communities to celebrate their connections and get to know each other a little bit better, coming together in a spirit of fun and friendship. In 2022 The Big Lunch will bring the Jubilee celebrations into the heart of every community.
    • People are invited to share friendship, food and fun with neighbours as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. A Big Jubilee Lunch can be big or small - street party or picnic, tea and cake or a garden barbeque. The Big Lunch provides tips and ideas for hosting an event.

Further announcements:

Later this month details of a special Jubilee emblem competition, in conjunction with the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Design Museum and the Royal College of Arts, will be released. The winning entry will become the official emblem for the celebrations next year.

More information on the details of the central weekend and other celebratory events across the UK and around the Commonwealth will be made in the months to come.

Police and Crime Plan Consultation

 18 June 2021

Dear colleagues

Police and Crime Plan consultation

This week I formally started the process of developing the new statutory Police and Crime Plan for the Humber, which will cover the period 2021-2024.

This is an important document that will not only set out the police and crime objectives for the Humber and the policing that the Chief Constable of Humberside Police is to provide, but also how statutory and non-statutory organisations across the area will work together to deliver safer communities and support the victims and witnesses of crime and antisocial behaviour.

I want to ensure that the plan is developed and delivered in the spirit of collaboration, with input from organisations and residents from across the area. I therefore wanted to make you aware of this work to ensure you have the opportunity to comment on issues in your local areas and to ask for your help in raising awareness with your residents.

I have launched a public survey, which will run until Sunday 11 July, to gather people’s views and experiences from across the area. The more people who complete it the better the information will be, so if you could help me to raise awareness of it (such as through social media or any residents’ newsletters you may have coming up) that would be greatly appreciated. I will of course publish the results. The link to the survey is: https://www.humberside-pcc.gov.uk/News/News-Archive/2021/Police-and-Crime-Plan-2021-24-Have-Your-Say.aspx

If there are any local issues or priorities you would like to raise with me as part of the process, please do email me at PCC@humberside.pnn.police.uk.

Thank you in advance for any support you can give and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Jonathan Evison

East Riding of Yorkshire Community Tree Planting Fund For Private & Public Landowners

East Riding of Yorkshire Community Tree Planting Fund that has just been launched.  This grant programme is for the purposes of delivering new tree planting activity and is open to private and public landowners across the East Riding of Yorkshire.  

I am pleased to let you know that we are now welcoming applications for funding through this programme for 2021, for the purposes of creating new areas of native woodland, planting new clusters of native trees, or establishing new individual native standard trees.  There are no restrictions on who can apply to the fund for a grant, and it is envisaged that applications will be received from a range of individuals and groups such as private and public landowners, farmers and land managers, community groups, businesses, community organisations, charities, Town & Parish Councils, schools and faith groups.

 

Applications to the fund should be made through the online FlexiGrant system, and this is available at https://eastridingofyorkshirecouncil.flexigrant.com/ where potential applicants are able to register and find all of the tree planting funds we currently have available, including the new East Riding of Yorkshire Community Tree Planting Fund.

For your interest, I enclose a Guidance Note supporting this fund which sets out the broad principles by which it is intended to make funding awards.  This Guidance Note is intended to steer applicants towards bringing forward the types of proposals that will be eligible through this fund, and these can be rural or urban in nature, and must demonstrate clear benefits to the East Riding of Yorkshire.  The deadline for the submission of applications for funding this year will be 31st August 2021 and a small grant panel will convene to oversee the process of awarding grants to successful applicants.  We hope to make all decisions regarding funding by 30th September 2021.

East Riding Local Plan Update

 The East Riding Council are opening up the proposed Local plan update for consultation from 28th May to 6th August 2021. Inviting comments from interested parties;

The Local Plan sets out planning policies for the area and is a key driver in determining planning applications and development opportunities in the East Riding. The current Local Plan was adopted in 2016. The council has reviewed this Plan and is now consulting on a draft update. This consultation is the second stage in reviewing the Local Plan. Responses to this consultation will be considered and will help to finalise a revised ‘pre-submission’ Local Plan that will be consulted on and then submitted to the Secretary of State for examination.

On Friday, 28 May 2021 the following documents will be published for a 10 week period of public consultation:

  • Draft Strategy Document Update - This includes the broad amount and location of development, for uses such as housing and employment, to be brought forward over the plan period to 2039. Additionally, policies relating to different issues such as protecting landscape character, minimising the risk of flooding and providing affordable housing are also addressed in this document.
  • Draft Allocations Document Update - sets out site specific policies for how residential, employment, retail and mixed use draft allocations should be developed in order to meet the targets of the Draft Strategy Document. Draft allocations include the re-allocation and de-allocation of existing adopted Local Plan sites along with new sites in some locations.
  • Draft Policies Map Update - a series of supporting Draft Policies Maps show the exact locations where development is proposed, as well as areas that should be protected from development.

A range of background and evidence base documents supporting the aims of the Draft Local Plan Update will also be published on Friday 28 May. These include:

  • Sustainability Appraisal
  • Draft Infrastructure Study
  • Draft Whole Plan Viability Assessment

Bielby Parish Meeting – Standing Orders relating to Parish Meetings


There are many obligations and requirements of parish councils and parish meetings (regardless of population) that are stated in law, regulations or guidance notes.

The National Association of Local Councils recommends that written standing orders are adopted to regulate meetings regarding aspects such as the necessary number of meetings, public notices and agenda of meetings, venue, quorum, attendance and conduct of meetings and other proceedings.

The  “Standing Orders relating to Parish Meetings” formalise in writing the ‘step-by-step’ process of planning, execution and reporting of official meetings of Bielby Parish Meeting.

- The document was produced following a review of relevant laws and guidance notes and similar standing orders of other parishes (including Allerthorpe, Shiptonthorpe and  Everingham and Harswell).

- The Standing Orders are mostly just practical and obvious requirements to assist the organisers and attendees of meetings, and tend to reflect how meetings have actually been organised and conducted in Bielby.
 
The  document “Standing Orders relating to Parish Meetings” is open for discussion and amendment as Agenda Item 13 at the forthcoming parish meeting on the 24th May 2021 prior to being adopted.

Ultrafast Broadband

Does Bielby want Ultrafast Broadband? The information below from Phil Cutland Green and this link to KCOM's pack may help. (Melbourne have now reached the required 30% of households).

Phil is happy to discuss any issues,  please email him at pgre@mac.com


I have been helping to generate interest in Ultrafast Broadband in (and around) Melbourne.

My wife and I are moving there shortly and whilst there is some Openreach “Superfast” broadband where some people can get 80/20Mbps speeds many can’t or need/want faster.

 I have worked in IT/Business Consulting for 20+ years (at IBM and Xerox where I currently work) , and have a real passion for communities to have access to Ultrafast (i.e. 900+ Speeds) and in many cases rural areas get left behind.

I have reached out to BT Openreach but they won’t be rolling out ultrafast broadband in the East Yorkshire area anytime soon (without community investment) - they have selected some rural areas in the UK but we are not one of them.  Even with community investment - which could potentially cost thousands per home - they still won’t be able to deploy for well over a year.

 Whilst from my research it seems that the central part of Bielby can potentially get speeds close to this (these speeds are determined by distance from the green BTOR cabinets in the main) I do see those further away with much lower speeds.

 However, I have been working with KCOM to see if they would be interested.. and they are.

They are willing to invest some of their own money, and get money from Government voucher schemes to roll out Ultrafast Broadband IF we can get enough people to register interest. 

They have a service called Lightstream - so this is fibre all the way to the home.  (Not to the cab - which is what Beilby currently has) 

 Note there’s no cost or commitment to register interest for this - and if we get enough people there will be no additional charge for them to install Ultrafast. (You’d just need to sign up if you wanted the service). 

 KCOM need around 30% of homes to register in order for them to “be interested” in deploying in those areas. (Link below)

https://www.kcomhome.com/lightstream/register-your-interest/

In Melbourne so far I am told that we aren’t far away from this threshold.

I was on a call with KCOM and a PC Member from East Cottingwith and KCOM mentioned that it could help if other areas were interested.  

They had mentioned Bielby, hence my email to you.

 In summary, I just wondered if the residents of Bielby would be interested in having the option at least of Ultrafast Broadband and therefore not being left behind.

If we miss out on this opportunity it could be many years before there’s any chance of getting faster speeds.

It would benefit small business (and larger ones!) and enable everyone to get faster speeds.

As mentioned Ultrafast broadband being suggested can deliver speeds up to 900/500Mbps and potentially higher in the future - so it’s pretty future proof. 

Please let me know if you need more details but I am hoping we can get a range of local villages also involved if they are interested.

I can put you in touch with people at KCOM if needed but I have also attached their info pack they normally present to PC’s.

 Regards

 Phil Cutland Green

pgre@mac.com

If you need any more info please let me know.

If you got 30%+ of the village interested then they could well have a good business case to bring much higher speeds to Beilby also.

 Note that KCOM are also actively pushing their community grant program out (which is open to areas that are or have KCOM) - I am sure there are caveats etc.. but if there’s a chance of getting money for good causes then it’s worth looking at in my mind.  Link for flyer  for info.

Old Bielby Identity Quest

Old Bielby - Identity Quest

Bielby Church has been kindly lent this old postcard by Mr Waby of Seaton Ross. It says on its reverse ''Harvest Festival Play, Manor Farm, Bielby, 3/10/13'' (i.e. 1913!).

We would be delighted and grateful if anyone recognises any of the actors, either remembering them as old(er) men in the 1930s and 1940s perhaps, or from family photographs.

It could be the case that the men were not from Bielby but were taking their performance around the villages. That sort of thing did happen.

If anyone can identify any of the men, please contact John Peel (tel. 318311 or john_peel@btopenworld.com). Bielby Church would be most grateful.

Funding Available For Local Projects In The Community

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all enjoying the nice weather. Please see the email from Councillor Hammond in relation to some funding available. I will be applying for a some funding to provide a new seat and paving for the space opposite the church. I also thought about large flower pots to be placed strategically round the village. If anybody else has any ideas please contact me.

Cheers

Paul Ward

Dear Clerk

I hope you and your Councillors are well?

I am happy to now provide you with further information as a follow up to my previous email about the Community Grant Scheme secured as part of ERYC’s annual budget by the Wolds Weighton Ward Councillors.

The scheme’s official name is now the ‘Fast Forward East Riding Community Fund’.

As explained in my previous email, the aim of the grant is to help projects and events which encourage residents to get back out there after Covid and utilise arts, cultural and community facilities, and high streets (where applicable).

You will be able to apply for funding between £500 and £5,000 to carry out projects in your Parish which assist with the above.

We are happy to inform you that, the initial £200,000 we secured for this Fund, has now increased to £250,000, so we should be able to get a lot done for our communities!

The Fund will remain available until March 2023, or until the £250,000 runs out. 

The Fund will be opened in mid-May, so you’ve still got good time to consider projects/events. These projects/events can either be carried out by yourselves, or other community organisations/groups within your Parish.

Information about how to reply will be released by the Grants Team when the Fund is launched. I am advised however, that it will be an easy process - I know some other grants are not!

If anyone has any questions about this Fund, please do not hesitate to get in touch!

Kind regards

Leo

Councillor Leo Hammond
