Parish Magazine update - November 2017

published on 1st Nov 2017

The following appeared in November's Parish Magazine

Escrick Parish Council

Parish Councillor vacancy: We still have a vacancy for a Parish Councillor - if you are interested, or would like to learn more about the role, please contact the Chair or Clerk (details below).

Quarry proposal: The Parish Council accepted an invite to visit Plasmor’s existing quarry at Hemingbrough to understand more about their plans for the proposed site west of the A19. The visit was helpful to understand the plans, but key concerns regarding traffic, and the risk of the site being used for landfill, remain. Plasmor advise that an application for planning permission is likely to be submitted in late in 2018, albeit some Councillors believe it may be sooner.

Grass cutting: The PC are seeking suppliers to undertake grass cutting of the village green, playing fields and verges - any potential suppliers are requested to contact chair@escrick.org for an information pack.

Local plans: Both York and Selby councils are consulting on their local plans. The latest version of the York plan has limited impact upon Escrick (having removed sites previously included adjacent to the village). The Selby plan includes potential housing sites in Escrick, but these may not be required due to a surplus of suitable sites. The planning working group will develop a response to the Selby consultation.

Carr Lane parking: Following complaints about dangerous parking on Carr Lane associated with school pick-up/drop-off, the police have confirmed that they will take enforcement action (fines of up to £1000, and 3 penalty points). They have written to all parents at the school and have been undertaking a mix of uniformed and plain-clothed visits.

Drains/sewage: Yorkshire water advise that fat blockages and a failed pumped were the cause of recent sewage leaks. They advise that the problem has been resolved and that they will be undertaking regular inspections to try to prevent a reoccurrence.

Village maintenance: The PC is coordinating an “Autumn Clean” on Saturday 11th November in the afternoon. See separate notice.

Parish Council meeting dates: Monday 6th November, 4th December, 8th January, 5th February. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick & Deighton Club. Public welcome.

Playing Fields AGM - Date correction

published on 31st Oct 2017

The Playing Fields Association AGM takes place at 8.30pm on MONDAY 13th NOVEMBER at Escrick & Deighton Club.

(not Monday 9th November as incorrectly posted in the Parish Magazine)

The AGM is a good opportunity to find out more and to get involved with the playing fields association, which raises funds for, and manages the village playing fields and play area. It would be really good to have some new volunteers to help this worthwhile cause.

THEFT - A comedy by Eric Chappell

John Miles is successful, determined and wealthy. When he returns from dinner out with wife Barbara and best friends Trevor and Jenny to find his house has been burgled, he's furious, particularly as the burglar may still be in the house. 

And when the local copper appears from nowhere, John assumes they have found their bumbling burglar, Spriggs. 

But as Spriggs starts to expertly manipulate, cajole and corrupt them, we begin to wonder if he's much, much cleverer than they think.  

With a hidden safe, childhood rivalries, guilty secrets and everything to lose, five very different people play an escalating and hilarious game of cat and mouse...

16th, 17th and 18th November 2017 at 7.30pm
The Village Hall, Escrick

Diwali, Halloween and Bonfire Night

published on 6th Oct 2017 (updated on 13th Oct 2017)

Diwali

This year Diwali falls on Thursday 19th October - 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.

There is more detail regarding the law around fireworks on the Government website: https://www.gov.uk/fireworks-the-law and police website: https://www.askthe.police.uk/c...

Halloween

Many children enjoy taking part in 'trick or treat' activities on Halloween (Tuesday 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

Bonfire night (5th Nov) falls on a Sunday this year, and it is likely that some residents will let off fireworks on Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th, and Sunday 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.

Parish Councillor vacancy: We still have a vacancy for a Parish Councillor - if anyone is interested, or would like to learn more about the role, please contact the Chair or Clerk (details below).

A19 safety:  Cllr Musgrave (County Councillor) reported that he had had several meetings with highways, and that the preferred solution would be to install traffic lights at the Skipwith Rd/A19 junction - the key issue is finding funding for the scheme.

Village maintenance: A dog waste bin has been installed on the footpath by the beck on Skipwith Road.

Hold the date, more details next month - many volunteers welcomed!
