Practical help

Help for people self-isolating:

Over the coming weeks some, if not many, people and/or families in the village will need to self-isolate.

Many will be self-sufficient through family and friends, but others will require support with basic tasks such as delivery of groceries, collecting prescriptions, or walking of dogs.

We have established a volunteer network of over 70 people to assist with this.

If you need help please call any of Caroline 720703, Jan 728741 or Jill 728424 or email

Please note this is for practical help only, not medical advice or support.

This activity is being coordinated by local volunteers. We will match those in need of support with those willing to help. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered.

If you are able to volunteer

Please let us know here

Other Information


Please can people be mindful that everyone is stuck at home at the moment (to state the obvious!) - therefore any activities that disturb your neighbours are somewhat amplified.  I've had complaints in particular about several bonfires in the village.


Some people have expressed concern that others are not being rigorous with their social distancing. For example, by delivering leaflets offering help, this could inadvertently be spreading the virus, or concerns that some people are being too sociable when out walking in gassy woods etc. Can I make a few suggestions:

  1. If you are worried about receiving post/leaflets/etc, put a note near your letter box saying so, and I would hope these would be respected;
  2. We are fortunate in having lots of open space around us. At the moment, the social distancing guidance does not say you have to stay indoors, and specifically says “You can also go for a walk outdoors if you stay more than 2 metres from others.” Please be mindful of maintaining this.


this is particularly relevant to Escrick which has a 'quirky' sewage network with relatively narrow pipes and relying on pumps and syphons.

Keeping our sewers blockage free: We know it’s been really hard to get hold of toilet roll, but it’s more important than ever that everyone remembers not to flush wipes and kitchen roll down their toilet.
Please only flush the three Ps – that’s pee, poo and (toilet) paper – to help us keep the sewers flowing and stop blockages from forming, which can then cause sewage to back up in people’s homes and gardens.

Coronavirus update from Selby District Council

published on 10th Mar 2020

This is to update you on the position with Covid-19, otherwise known as Coronavirus.

As you’d expect, all our services are undertaking significant planning to prepare for the impact of the virus, both in terms of the potential impact on our own staff and on our residents and businesses.

We continue to work in partnership with Public Health England, Public Health at the County Council and our local partners to ensure we’re working together to manage this challenge.  We have a strong track record of working together to deal with significant issues affecting our communities.  This partnership approach is being managed through the North Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum.

We’re also supporting the government’s public information campaign, linking back to nationally-agreed key messages.  We’ll be talking to staff about how best to protect themselves and the people they come into contact with.  

This is an ever-changing situation, with new cases announced daily.  We’re following the very latest government guidance and will continue to plan and adapt our response as required.
