At around 4am on Wednesday 7th November there was a break-in to a house on Carrs Meadow.
The intruder(s) manipulated a lock to gain entry, and fled after being disturbed by the householder.
Separately, different residents had reported seeing three men acting suspiciously in the area on Tuesday - claiming to be fish sellers. It is not known if this is related.
Residents are encouraged to be vigilant and report any information that may be relevant to the police on 101.

Every year over 30,000 cardiac arrests happen outside of hospital - often witnessed by family members and friends.
Escrick has a CPR a training kit and from time-to-time we can arrange CPR training courses for local residents. We're considering arranging another one for December or January. If you are interested, please can you email firstname.lastname@example.org so that we have an idea of numbers, and can contact you when we have fixed a date.
Remember Escrick has a public access defibrillator, located outside Escrick & Deighton Club on Main St.
You don't need training to use it.
It is simple and safe. The machine gives clear spoken instructions. If you are still not confident using it, the 999 emergency operator can also help you. More details https://www.escrick.org/council/defibrillator/

Many children enjoy taking part in 'trick or treat' activities on Halloween (Wednesday 31st October), and many residents gladly take part sharing treats. However, not everyone welcomes visitors, including those trying to get small children to sleep, or those who find answering the door difficult.
The general etiquette is that those households willing to partake leave a pumpkin on prominent display, and those that would rather be left in peace don't. Please consider this etiquette if taking part.

Bonfire night (5th Nov) falls on a Monday this year, and it is likely that some residents will let off fireworks on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd, and Monday 5th November. Those residents with pets may wish to keep them indoors on these dates. (NB: There is no display at Queen Margaret's this year, due to half-term).
We are aware that some residents object to private firework displays - but there is no requirement for them to be pre-notified, and (providing they are undertaken lawfully) no ability for the Parish Council to prevent them. It might be considered good manners, however, to let your neighbours know in advance if you are planning a display, particularly if they have pets. See https://www.escrick.org/village/fireworks/ for details of our notification service.
This year the main Diwali celebrations fall on Wednesday 7th November - and it is likely that some residents will celebrate with fireworks (which are legally permitted until 1am on Diwali). Those residents with pets may wish to keep them indoors.

The following update has been provided for publication in November's Parish magazine
Escrick Parish Council
At October’s meeting, the Parish Council has agreed two key actions with regard to highways:
Other highways matters:
Former Stillingfleet mine site: At the time of writing there has been no further updates regarding the planning application for a waste sorting centre at the former Stillingfleet Mine site – the earliest this can go to planning committee is in November. The Parish Council strongly opposes the development, and in conjunction with Stillingfleet PC has supported local residents with their objections.
Former North Selby mine site: Several Councillors attended the public exhibition by Harworth’s planning consultants. Key points include: plans are for approx 300 plots, consisting of a mix of touring and static caravans; Harworths are looking for a development partner to either buy the site, or develop on their behalf; the site would contain basic amenities such as office and small shop, but is not a ‘Centre Parcs’ style leisure park; they plan to submit planning application in November, and would expect 3 – 6 months for approval. www.escrick.org/-/430
Neighbourhood Development Plan: The NDP team have received over 100 survey responses, and will work through these with the external consultants. The current expectations is that findings will be reported back via a public meeting in December. www.escrick.org/ndp
The Parish Council received a strongly worded complaint about a recent fireworks display in the village, citing the distress caused to pets and individuals. The Parish Council resolved to establish an early warning service for fireworks displays, on a voluntary basis. Details online at www.escrick.org/village/fireworks/
Vacancies: The Parish Council has two vacancies for Parish Councillors – please contact us via details below if you would like to join the Parish Council.
Parish Council meeting dates: Monday 5th Nov, 3rd Dec, 7th Jan. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick & Deighton Club. Public welcome. Contact: Chair (Richard Rowson), email@example.com; Clerk (Helen Guest), firstname.lastname@example.org; Website: escrick.org

Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to our Neighbourhood Development Plan survey.
We received over 100 responses, and it is evident that many people put significant thought and time into their responses, which will be very helpful supporting the development of our NDP and other initiatives.
During the next few weeks we will be working with our consultants to consolidate the findings and identifying options for future development. We expect to be in a position to share findings in early December.

From time to time Escrick Parish Council receives complaints from residents regarding fireworks in and around the village. The main concern is the distress caused to pets and horses. We also recognise that many people enjoy firework displays.
The Parish Council has no powers to restrict firework displays, but we can help notify those that would like prior warning.
As such we have set-up a mailing list for anyone who wishes to be notified of fireworks displays.
Similarly, we would be grateful if you could notify us of any planned displays, so that this can be shared with those on the distribution list.

The Monday Players - in our Silver Jubilee year - are proud to present our 50th production...
PAR FOR THE COURSE
A comedy by Peter Gordon
Captain's Day at the Seven Lakes Golf Club gets off to a bad start when the men's Captain is indisposed. Club secretary, Simon, relishes the chance to take over but is soon thwarted by the arrival of Vice Captain, Nick and his girlfriend, Tiffany. Lady Captain, Fran, and enthusiastic but hopeless Barry add to the confusion as a series of disasters mount. With the unexpected arrival of Simon's wife, Laura, tensions build and things go from bad to worse.
Set on the club house patio, the characters soon discover that personal relationships OFF the course are more dangerous than the hazards ON the course!
Love or loathe golf, it will never seem quite the same again!
Thursday 15th, Friday 16th and Saturday 17th November 2018 at 7.30pm
The Village Hall, Escrick
Tickets available from:
Monday Players Members

Playwright Peter Gordon was born in York, England. Now a full-time writer, his earlier career as a Chartered Civil Engineer took him as far afield as the Middle East and eventually led him to become Head of Civil Engineering at a UK university.
As a true Yorkshireman, Peter has returned to his roots, living in York with his wife, Janice. In addition to writing, he has a keen interest in music. He considers himself to be a good drummer and an enthusiastic but less-than-adequate guitarist. He is trying to keep his ukulele playing a secret from his friends and family!>
