North Yorkshire County Council hazardous household waste consultation

published on 6th Jul 2017

North Yorkshire County Council is seeking the views of residents about how they can help you dispose of hazardous household waste in the future.

At present residents are unable to dispose of hazardous wastes at our 20 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs). Instead the council provides a home collection service, free of charge, for hazardous waste such as white spirit, some paints and paint cleaners; weed killers and pesticide; brake fluid and anti-freeze.

They now need to look at other ways of helping residents dispose of hazardous household waste.

They are asking for your views in a consultation starting on 10 July 2017. The consultation asks questions around a number of potential options for future hazardous household waste disposal services, including:

  • accepting hazardous household waste at the county’s HWRCs to enable residents to dispose of it at their convenience,
  • charging for home collection services for some or all types of hazardous household waste, ceasing to provide a home collection service for some or all types of hazardous household waste.

The consultation will run until 2 October 2017 and anyone wanting to take part can do so online at

Cawood bridge works

published on 28th Jun 2017

There are traffic restrictions at Cawood Bridge until mid September, and the bridge is scheduled to be closed completely from 24th July to 2nd September.

Traffic restrictions until 24th July, and from 2nd September consist of 6 way temporary lights, with a single lane open across the bridge. From 24th July until 2nd September the bridge will be closed completely to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. (This work has been scheduled for the summer holidays to minimise impact on local families).

The 42x Cawood bus services will be diverted via Selby and non-stop along the A19 during the closure running to a revised timetable.

The work is for the installation of the 132 steel plates to strengthen the bridge to permit a 10 tonne weight limit and erection of scaffolding for use in painting the bridge.

Private Peaceful - Pick Me Up Theatre

published on 27th Jun 2017

On Tuesday 4 July Pick Me Up Theatre is bringing its 5* production of 'Private Peaceful' to QM for a very special performance in the Chapman Theatre.

York actor, George Stagnell, plays Private Thomas 'Tommo' Peaceful - and everyone he meets in his life - in this poignant, moving and uplifting one-man play adapted by Simon Reade from the much loved novel by Michael Morpurgo.

The author's inspiration from the story came from a visit to the war museum in Ypres where he was intrigued by a typed letter from an Army Captain to the mother of a soldier. In a few short lines she was told that her son had been shot at dawn for cowardice.

Morpugo discovered that this young man was just one of many and at that moment he knew he had to tell their story. The result was 'Private Peaceful' - a book that not only highlights the horrors and futilities of war, but also the joy and wonders of life.

Pick Me Up's production staged recently in York received wonderful reviews and now plays at QM for one night only ahead of it playing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August.

Residents of Escrick are invited to join us. Tickets must be booked in advance by emailing and cost £5 which will be payable in cash on the door. Tickets are offered on a first come, first served basis.
