Kirk Ella and West Ella Parish Councillors wish to express sincere thanks on behalf of ourselves and the rest of the community for all your efforts in clearing up the disgusting littering of hundreds of beer cans which were left beside the Poor Field Bridal Path a few weeks ago. We are still searching for the culprits, with the aim of passing their details to the local authorities who take a very dim view of this type of activity. Drunkenness or age are no excuse for this activity happening

Fraud Watch
Fraud comes in many different forms, and absolutely anyone can become a victim.

Fraudsters aim to trick individuals into giving away cash, bank details or other personal information; this is done by them contacting thousands of random people.


Dog Fouling
A general reminder to all dog walkers that they have to clean up after their dog, whatever the weather or leaf or snow cover. The same applies to the hours of darkness - you need a torch. There are plenty of litter bins throughout the Parish, so please pick it up. When the children are encouraged to walk to school it is only fair that dog mess is picked up. East Riding of Yorkshire Council has issued Fixed Penalty Notices in Kirk Ella for failure to clear up after a dog has fouled.

If you can identify a dog walker who does not clean up, with the time and place, you should report it to ERYC, and the dog warden will try to visit the area. We have some stickers and will be affixing these to the lamp posts around Pine. Meadows. If anyone knows of other areas where more stickers are needed, please let us know. When the pavement is dry, we will use the Parish Council stencil and spray paint but it is not suitable in wet and cold weather. Liz and Tom


I just thought I ought to tell you that it is my intention to retire at the end of this summer term. Having been a Parish Councillor for over 22 years, in fact from the Council’s inception, I now feel it is time for me to step back.

During my time as a councillor we have written 22 annual reports which have been distributed each April. We have organised “The Way We Used To Be” exhibitions at the Memorial Hall, Kirk Ella, the Church Hall, South Ella and at the Kirk Ella School, all supported by our M.P. David Davis. We have had Yorkshire Day and charity money raising coffee mornings at our two local pubs and of course the production of our Heritage Trail book which my husband, Stan, helped me to produce and have printed following a successful grant application from “Awards for All”. He then erected more than 20 blue plaques on historic buildings round this trail. All this to enhance the historic value of our two most interesting villages.

There have been several other successful grant applications with which we have been able to buy street furniture, namely seats and information boards. Our latest is being supervised by the then Vice Chairman, now Chairman Councillor Shaun Horton, an historic information board for the Sycamores the old South Ella School site.

Our last major function was of course the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee barbecue, organised by Councillors Stan Raymond and John Bailey in conjunction with the management of the Hull Golf Club when our beacon was lit twice, on both the Thursday and Saturday evenings.

Kirk Ella and West Ella Parish Council is a most successful one not least because of the extreme hard work of our Clerk, Mandy Pickering. Thank you all for your support and friendship, the friendship which I hope will continue during my retirement.

Councillor Margaret Raymond
