Escrick Parish Council update September 2020

Covid 19: 

At September’s meeting the Parish Council reviewed arrangements, and agreed to keep these unaltered. The Council will continue to meet via video calls, and the playground will remain open with restrictions and an enhanced cleaning regime.  Plans may change as the pandemic evolves and residents are encouraged to check the Council’s website for updates.


Skipwith Road speeding:  The Council has submitted a request to the ’95 alive’ road safety partnership requesting that they review the speeding issues on Skipwith Road. After some delay they have acknowledged the request, but are not in a position to progress at the moment due to staff shortages.

The vehicle activated sign is currently out of action, due to an electrical fault. It is due to be repaired during September under warranty.

COVID-19 Selby District Council Update 17th Sept 2020

published on 17th Sep 2020

Update from Selby District Council - Thursday 17th September 2020:

To update you on the situation with Covid-19 in Selby district, as our area continues to record higher numbers of cases compared to other parts of North Yorkshire.

The Local Resilience Forum has declared a major incident, given the rise in case numbers.  Of particular concern in North Yorkshire are the Selby and Scarborough districts.

In our district, there are particular concerns about community transmission in the Sherburn-in-Elmet area.  We are also seeing increases amongst care home residents and staff.

This is happening against a backdrop of national problems with laboratory capacity, which means fewer Covid 19 tests are available and results are taking longer.

 Working together with LRF partners, we’ve put the following in place:

  • Moved into major incident response mode;
  • Directed local testing facilities towards areas of greatest need;
  • Stepped up support to care homes and other care services;
  • Started to prepare for re-introducing restrictions to visits to care homes in the Selby district 
  • Paused the re-opening of social care day services;
  • Worked with Safety Advisory Groups (SAGs) to develop guidance to ensure events are Covid-19 compliant and to advise the cancellation of events in areas with high levels of infection to protect lives and livelihoods;
  • Worked proactively with workplace and hospitality sectors to promote Covid-19 safety measures;
  • Supported schools and businesses with positive cases to manage incidents and prevent or limit the size of outbreaks.

These actions are being taken to try to avoid a further full lockdown if possible. Work continues now to prevent, contain and reduce the spread of the virus.

In addition, in the whole of the Selby district, people are asked to:

  • Exercise extra vigilance in maintaining hand hygiene and social distancing
  • Use face coverings when leaving home while circulating infection levels are increasing
  • Avoid large groupings of over 30 people
  • Events organisers to re-think any indoor or outdoor events that involve more than 30 people;
  • Take extra care when leaving home if you have an underlying health condition or have been advised to shield

Thank you for your continued help as we work together to control the virus.

Yorkshire Pudding Rally 2020

published on 19th Aug 2020

Dear Escrick Residents,

As some of you may be aware, the Yorkshire Pudding Rally is due to take place Friday 28th August to Sunday 30th August. With the current situation it will be very different to normal years, the decision has been made to not allow guests to enter the village to use the pub or the club, to further reduce the risk to local residents. All guests will be temperature tested on entering the event, and once in will not be allowed to leave and re-enter. Social distancing will be in place across the event itself as well numerous measures to adhere to government guidelines.

Selby Licencing and the Safety Advisory Group have given the go ahead to the event. However, it goes without saying that if the government guidance changes to prohibit such an event then the decision will be taken to cancel.

Permission has been granted based on the local government advice here:
