Marquee and club available - Sunday 18th September

published on 25th Jun 2016

On Saturday 17th September, the Escrick & Deighton Club will again be hosting the Huge band.

There will be a marquee in place outside the club for the band, and this will also be there on Sunday 18th September.

We would like to find a good community use for the marquee on the Sunday rather than simply leaving it empty. For example it had been suggested that it could be used to host a farmers' market or similar - but we're receptive to any good idea to make use of it.

If anyone would like to embrace this opportunity and coordinate a good use of this venue on Sunday 18th, please contact in the first instance.

Hedges and footpaths

published on 25th Jun 2016

We are at the time of year when trees and hedges are growing again.

The council often receives complaints about overgrown hedges and trees, particularly where these obstruct pavements, signs and street lights.

Please can we ask that residents maintain their hedges and trees so that they do not obstruct the pavements, roads, street lights nor signs.

It is usually the legal responsibility of residents to ensure that their trees/hedges do not infringe the highway or pavement. Problem hedges can be reported to North Yorks County Council via their website.

Any further donations from residents or local businesses will be gratefully received. Please contact if you would like to make a donation.

If the heart of someone you loved stopped beating would you know what to do?

Every year over 30,000 cardiac arrests happen outside of hospital - often witnessed by family members and friends.

Effective CPR performed immediately on someone suffering a cardiac arrest can buy time for professional help to arrive, and in some cases can help double a person's survival chances.

Escrick Parish Council has obtained a British Heart Foundation CPR training kit. The kit delivers several short DVD based training courses, along with manikins to practice upon.

We will be holding a community training session at the Village Hall on Wednesday 21st September at 7.30pm. If you are interested in attending, please email (so we have a rough idea of numbers).

The training kit is also available for other Escrick based groups to borrow and coordinate their own training. The training takes less than an hour and is suitable for anyone over 12. If you would like to discuss arranging your own training for your own group please contact Richard -

A63 Selby Bypass - Carriageway Reconstruction

published on 8th Jun 2016 (updated on 21st Jun 2016)

North Yorkshire County Council will be undertaking carriageway re-construction works at the above location, between and including the A19 Brayton Roundabout, the A1041 Wishing Well Roundabout and the approaches.

The works are currently programmed to commence on 20 June 2016 and are programmed over a twelve week period, though this will be dependent on weather conditions.

Full road closures will be in operation during the works and will be permanently staffed by qualified Traffic Management Officers (TMO’s).

Daytime and night time working is planned on both the Wishing Well Roundabout and the Brayton Roundabout, which unfortunately will result in disruption. However, undertaking night time works on the two roundabouts will reduce the time taken to complete the Works.

Please note that works on the roundabouts will be sequenced to ensure that through route to and from Brayton and Selby is available from the A19 and A1041 respectively at all times. Further lane closures and road closures will be needed, which will be notified through advanced signs on site.
