Tadcaster is getting ready to welcome visitors to a cycling festival that celebrates the Yorkshire 2019 Para-Cycling International event this weekend.
There will be various local road closures including the A19 - see link below for details
The Tadcaster Cycle Festival and para-cycling start event takes place in the town on Saturday 21 September. A range of activities to help celebrate the day are being organised by the Tadcaster Events Management Project Team.
Kirkgate and Westgate will be the main community activity area. There will be the chance to try out different types of cycles, including the adapted bikes para-cyclists use, KMX karts, Mega bikes and rickshaws. Lots of local community groups and clubs will have stalls showcasing activities on offer locally and there’ll also be craft and food stalls. Inspiring healthy lifestyles will be offering free health checks at their stall.
Local radio will be broadcasting from the event and big screens will show the action from the para-cycling race. Tadcaster is one of three start locations in Yorkshire before the riders finish in Harrogate. Different classifications of riders set off from the different start locations depending on their abilities. More than 100 riders are expected to race from the town on the 57km route to Harrogate. The Tadcaster start sets off at 2pm although riders, who have set off Beverley earlier in the day, will pass through the town just before the 2pm start.
The Barn at Manor Farm will see activities on the skate park and crafts courtesy of Tadcrafters, as well as hosting a café. Selby District Council’s leisure providers, Inspiring health lifestyles, are helping to organise some of the activities taking place.
David Gluck, from TEMPT, added:
"The Community Hub on Kirkgate and Westgate is going to be an amazing space for the day - so much for families to do, close to the Start Line for the racing and just round the corner from the John Smith's Brewery pop-up, the Barn's BMX and skate park and loads of other great activities throughout our special little town!"
Wellbeing manager, Dani Penney, from Inspiring healthy lifestyles, added,
“We’re really excited to be working with TEMPT on the lead up to and after the event. Our aim is to develop opportunities for inclusive cycling across the district; we have a number of fantastic opportunities in store over the coming months including free cycle coaching, guided rides, inclusive pop up events and free cycling related giveaways.”
Lead executive member with responsibility for housing, health and culture, Cllr Chris Pearson, commented,
“This is a fantastic opportunities for the community to come together to watch these inspirational athletes compete at the highest level.”

We have received reports from Riccall that some residents with external mail boxes believe that items of mail have been taken from the mail boxes. These items of post have then used to apply for multiple credit cards.
Residents with external mailboxes are asked to be vigilant, particularly if they think that letters such as bills or bank statements might be missing.
It is believed that the suspect may pretend to be delivering leaflets. Residents are asked to be on the lookout for suspicious behaviour around mail boxes.>

The following notice appeared in August's Parish Magazine
Escrick Parish Council:
A19/Skipwith Road junction scheme: Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation. Councillors debated the scheme on 1st July, including the findings of the precept increase consultation, and resolved to apply to the Secretary of State for authority to borrow the funds to finance the scheme. This is the first of a number of steps that have to happen before the scheme can go ahead, these include receiving the permission to borrow, applying for the loan itself, placing the order with North Yorkshire highway, who in turn will need to do a consultation on the scheme design. More: escrick.org/council/a19-consultation-results/
Skipwith Road speeding: The Parish Council has agreed to buy a portable vehicle activated speed sign which can be moved between different locations in the Parish. It was agreed that the initial location should be Skipwith Road in the vicinity of the Carr Lane junction. A contribution to the cost of the sign and mounting post is expected from the County Councillor’s highways budget.
Former North Selby mine site: At the time of writing the planning authorities are still considering the application. Highways England has however placed a ’notice of non-determination’ on the application. This means that the planning authorities cannot grant permission for the scheme until Highways Englands’ concerns which primarily relate to the impact on the A19/A64 junction have been adequately addressed.
Former Stillingfleet Mine site: We have been advised that planning officers will be recommending that the application for a waste sorting site is declined.
Escrick brickworks tip variation: At the time of writing there is no further update on the application to extend the volume of waste to be deposited at the site.
Clay extraction west of business park: A planning application for clay extraction is expected over the summer.
A few people have commented recently that they feel that they don’t have visibility of issues being considered by, nor the opportunity to contribute to decisions being made by the Parish Council. We do try to summarise all the key issues that we are working on in this monthly update, and there is a lot more information including agendas and minutes on our website (escrick.org). Please don’t feel that you can only share your views when there’s a formal consultation. If you see a topic that is of interest to you, please just contact us.
We currently have three vacancies for Parish Councillors. Please contact us if you might be interested or want to understand more about what is involved.
Parish Council meeting dates: 2nd September, 7th October, 4th November, 2nd December. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick & Deighton Club. Public welcome. Contact: Chair (Richard Rowson), firstname.lastname@example.org; Clerk (Helen Guest), email@example.com; Website: escrick.org

Northern Powergrid will be installing a new electricity supply to the new houses adjacent to the beck / Runmidd.
This will require digging a trench for a new cable across the road in the vicinity.
Northern Powergrid have been granted a 5 day closure to undertake the work from 29th July to 2nd August, albeit it is likely that the work will not take the full duration of this time.

Fudge is a lovely 15 year old wire-haired Jack Russell terrier who is madly missed by owner Gilly after he went walkabout on June 26th in Wheldrake near York. He's very deaf, doesn't take kindly to other dogs and is mistrustful of small children. But he is Gilly's much-loved constant companion and we have to find him. Share like mad please! He has been seen in Escrick in the woods near the playground.
