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.

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.

  • 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.

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.

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:

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

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

Yours sincerely

Jonathan Evison

Colour Printer Available

Jan Emptage has a HP 2600 laser colour printer that she no longer uses and would be happy to give it away to anyone who would find a use for it.  It works fine but will need one new colour cartridge to get it printing.  It is quite heavy but Chris would be happy to deliver it to anyone in the village.
