Parish magazine update - November 2021
The following update appears in November's Parish magazine
Escrick Parish Council Update
Get involved! We’re looking for volunteers in several areas:
- Platinum Jubilee Celebrations: We are looking to form a group to organise Platinum Jubilee celebrations in the village (2nd – 5th June 2022). Escrick has held a range of events for previous Jubilees, and we’re hoping to keep up that tradition.
- Playground: Some of the equipment in the playground is approaching end of life. We’re looking for volunteers to join the playing fields association to develop plans for replacing the aging equipment, and pursue funding opportunities such as grant funding, donations and fund-raising.
- Escrick 10k: We’re looking for someone to chair the organising committee. This run raises £5k - £7k each year for the playground and other local causes. A full handover will be given. An established event plan is in place, and an experienced committee, including race director, is in place .
If you are interested in getting involved in any of the above, please contact email@example.com.
Bus stops: Bins, southbound bus shelter, and improved lighting are all still being progressed with City of York Council.
Highways: Dropped kerbs and village gateway have both been delayed due to North Yorkshire County Council having supply chain issues. Cllr Chambers met with highways to discuss potential improvements to pedestrian safety along the A19, albeit it appears unlikely that any options will be feasible.
Shop: The working group is continuing to develop options and work through potential issues.
Councillors: We have two vacancies for Parish Councillors. Please contact the clerk or chair if you are interested in getting involved.
Parish Council meeting dates: 1st November, 6th December and 3rd January . All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick and Deighton Club. Contact: Clerk (Sally Look), firstname.lastname@example.org, Chair (Richard Rowson), email@example.com; Website: escrick.org
