Playground - volunteers
published on 15th Jan 2022
We're really keen to find some volunteers to help ensure Escrick continues to have a fun and well maintained playground.
Next time you visit the playground, you'll notice that unfortunately there's two fewer pieces of equipment than there used to be.
Most of the playground dates back to 2005 and is now reaching the end of its life - so unfortunately these won't be the last pieces that have to be removed.
The playground is overseen and funded by the Escrick Playing Fields Association. This is a charity founded by parents in the village to ensure each generation of children has somewhere to play. The association raises money through events such as the Escrick 10k, sponsored events (e.g. dragon boat race) and grant applications.
We're looking for the next generation of parents to get involved and share their ideas, energy and fund raising skills to buy and install the next generation of equipment for the playground.
If you are able to help, please contact Simon Hunt - firstname.lastname@example.org or Richard Rowson - email@example.com
Parish Council meeting 10th January cancelled

Government legislation no longer permits remote meetings, such as via Zoom, so this is not possible as an alternative.
Parish Magazine Update - January 2022
published on 2nd Jan 2022
The following update appears in January 2022's Parish Magazine
Escrick Parish Council Update
Bus stops: We are waiting for City of York Council to confirm installation timescales for an additional streetlight opposite the Sang Thai to improve lighting on the way to, and at, the bus stops.
- At the time of writing, one dropped kerb has been installed. The remaining dropped kerbs and the village gateway on Skipwith Road have both been delayed due to North Yorkshire County Council having supply chain issues.
- The Parish Council has been made aware of concerns about the condition of the pavement on Wenlock Drive. These have been passed to Selby District Council (responsible for sweeping/cleaning) and North Yorkshire County Council (responsible for maintenance). In the meantime, if any public spirited residents wish to sweep the areas near their property we would be very grateful.
Councillors: We have two vacancies for Parish Councillors. Please contact the clerk or chair if you are interested in getting involved.
Get involved! We’re still looking for volunteers in several areas:
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parish Council meeting dates: 10th January, 7th February and 7th March. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick and Deighton Club. Contact: Clerk (Sally Look), email@example.com, Chair (Richard Rowson), firstname.lastname@example.org; Website: escrick.org
