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. In the last few months East Riding of Yorkshire Council has issued 2 Fixed Penalty Notices in Kirk Ella for failure to clear up after a dog has fouled.

If any resident can identify a dog walker who does not clean up, with the time and place, they 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 any resident 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

A Message from your Chairman - April 2018
Our 2018 Kirk Ella & West Ella Annual Report is now completed and has just been printed. It should be posted through your door anytime now. In it we give a resume of our work throughout the past year which we hope will be of some interest to you. Doreen and I have divided it into sections with the headings: Environment, Civic Duties, Fundraising, Annual Christmas Celebrations and Our Heritage with the addition of a few incidental snippets for your information.

Since it went to press we have acted on Councillor Marion Jackson’s idea of having another Heritage Trail Information Board at the roughly half way point on Riplingham Road near the corner of Elveley Drive. Permission was granted by the Highways Department at County Hall, Beverley and Councillor David Robinson, having organised the printing and framing of the map, supervised the installation of this new information board. Councillor John Bailey and his wife had planted the area with the daffodil bulbs in the autumn and now together with the seat for a brief rest, it makes a very pleasant pause in a walk. Also the Kirk Ella Newsagent has requested more Heritage Trail Booklets as he had sold out so his stock is now replenished.

The frequent showers have damaged some of our spring flowers but they should recover. Many stretches of the roads in our neighbourhood such as South Ella Way, Beverley Road, Riplingham Road to name but a few, are a credit to the continued efforts of our local residents. We would like to thank all those who give their time to keeping our villages attractive in many ways such as planting round street names and boundary walls. A big thank you from the Parish Council.

The new Post Office at Willerby Square within “Wishes” shop is being well used, and proving to be a real asset for the community.

I know it is very early but it will be the centenary of the ending of W.W.1 this year and we would like your ideas on what act of remembrance we should have or how we should respectfully mark the date.
