Residents urged to complete survey on fast food litter in the East Riding

Residents in the East Riding are being encouraged to complete an online survey about fast food litter.

The waste and recycling team at East Riding of Yorkshire Council is asking people to take part in the consultation to air their views on how the littering of packaging from fast food outlets affects the area.

The team is looking to gather the opinions of residents, local businesses, visitors, and parish and town councils on the impact of this particular problem.

Councillor Chris Matthews, the council’s portfolio holder for environment and climate change, said: “We would really appreciate residents helping us by filling out the survey. Litter is a major issue for every local authority.

“At East Riding of Yorkshire Council, we spend around £3.9million per year cleaning up litter, and many residents feel strongly about this problem, with several volunteer litter picking groups active in areas including Bridlington, Beverley and Hessle.

“A major contributor to the amount of litter on our streets, our roadsides and in parks and play areas, is packaging waste dropped by customers using fast food outlets.

“This is often waste which could otherwise be easily recycled if it was disposed of properly.

“It’s often difficult to identify the people who dropped it, and can be very unsightly in communities where the outlets are based.

“So we need people to help us try to get on top of the issue”

The survey takes less than five minutes to complete and asks for views about the area you live, what your opinions are of litter and some suggested solutions to the problem.

To complete the survey, visit the website

Please send responses by 15 April 22




Right of Way Improvement Plan consultation survey now live

Right of Way Improvement Plan consultation survey now live: Yorkshire Wolds Walking and Outdoor Festival 2019 photo #1

The council is asking residents to contribute to the ‘Rights of Way Improvement Plan’ (ROWIP) consultation survey as the authority sets out the overall direction of travel and aims for the development of the public rights of way network in East Yorkshire.

The council reassesses the ROWIP every ten years and makes amendments to it if necessary. It does not include details for individual improvements or addresses specific locations, but it helps to guide council officers and the voluntary and community sector partners in the development of a network that is more relevant to more people.

The survey includes multiple statements on which residents can enter a response which ranges between strongly agree and strongly disagree.

The council is currently updating the ROWIP to reflect important changes in the benefits that our countryside paths provide. For example, the health and well-being, active travel, leisure and recreation, and the social and economic value that the network provides.

Here is the draft consultation version of the ROWIP:

Draft Rights of Way Improvement Plan 2022-2032 (pdf 3.2mb)

Residents can have their say via the consultation pages on the council’s website: Have your say on the ROWIP or by emailing by 31 March 2022.

Based on information and comments received during the consultation process, the Statement of Action will provide a framework for managing the network, rather than providing solutions to individual cases, and will identify priorities for improving public rights of way, in line with the needs of all types of users.

Claire Hoskins, interim head of asset strategy at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Being able to enjoy time in a natural environment is really important for our mental health and wellbeing.  It reduces, stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression.

“Enjoyed alone, being more active can help boost immune systems and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as asthma. Enjoyed with others, it can combat loneliness and bind communities together.

“This survey is an opportunity for our residents to get involved in the strategic planning when it comes to managing our networks.

“Though it doesn’t include details for specific locations, it will give a good guide to the opinion of residents on a range of topics so adjustments can be made to the Rights of Way Improvement Plan to benefit all different types of users of our networks.”

Old hoarding gets a new lease of life at playing field

LOCAL football teams in Patrington are assured of extra supporters, thanks to two talented artists and a disused hoarding.

The artists, Adam Young and his partner Jo Stafford, who both have degrees in art, were commissioned by Patrington Parish Council to do something with the hoarding, which measures approximately 10 feet by 12 feet, to brighten up the football field for players, visitors and residents.

The artistic duo decided that family spectators of all ages would be a good idea and so have produced a bright and attractive mural on one side, with football shooting targets on the other to make best used of the hoarding, which has proved to be a bit of an eyesore in the past.

The ideas came about after Parish clerk, Diane Chapman, spotted youngsters drawing hopscotch and other games on a concrete area in the adjacent playpark and it was suggested that the Parish Council may like to make it more permanent. It was then agreed that the hoarding could also do with a face lift and the artists were commissioned.

The work was funded by the council from the proceeds from a textiles collection box on the playing field and has proved popular with everyone who has seen it.

They have also painted children’s games in the adjacent playpark which are already proving a hit with local children.

Adam and Jo were very keen to produce the mural as the Covid lockdown has meant that similar schemes have been few and far between, however this may well be one of the last ones they do as the couple now plan to fulfil a long-standing ambition and take over a public house in Colne, near Burnley in Lancashire.

Adam has a connection with Patrington as his father, Kevin Young, is a well-known painter and decorator and lives in the village.

Draft Local Plan Update Consultation (

Draft Local Plan Update consultation drop-in event taking place tomorrow (Thursday) at Withernsea Leisure Centre, 12-7pm. Come along to find out more and speak to a council officer about the proposals. Details of all events available online:


Draft Local Plan Update Consultation (

At the meeting on 5th July 2021 Councillors listened to the views expressed by those residents present regarding the local plan update.  Councillors heard the concerns expressed [amongst others] and were able to agree that growth of the village should be:
in appropriate places
of appropriate design and to a good standard to ensure a good quality of life
and that the services which all residents need including health, schools, roads, energy should all be available to a good standard to the population of the area.

All Councillors present undertook that they would carefully consider the local plan update in light of those views and concerns which they had heard and together with their own experience of life and each of them would submit an individual response to the local plan update consultation.

This approach was decided upon because a consolidated approach in one document could never faithfully represent the views of everyone in the parish.  However, submitting individual responses brings the potential for the consultation to benefit from 12 different voices with varied experience of life and circumstances [each 12 being people who had heard the views expressed at the meeting].  This approach was adopted as we believed that it was the fairest way of representing the diversity of views and needs of residents in the village.

We urge those who spoke at the meeting [together with any other residents with views on the local plan update] to submit their views so that they can be considered as part of the consultation by 6th August 2021.  This can be done by:
(i)              Emailing their views by 6th August 2021 to:,
(ii)             or writing to Forward Planning (Room AS67), East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Cross Street, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 9BA
(iii)           or using the response form online at Draft Local Plan Update Consultation (

 If any resident is unable to access the plan or submit a response please do contact me and I will be happy to help ensure your views are communicated.

Great British Spring clean – 28th May 2021-13th June 2021

28th May to 13th June 2021 is the Great British Spring Clean. From this website you can find information on how to safely organise group litter picks and pledge to help the Million Mile Mission.

Our outdoor spaces are now more important than ever. Patrington Parish Council are organising some group litter picks throughout this period. These events will need to be carefully organised to ensure that we comply with rules so if you wish to participate as part of those groups please contact me on or or on 07912346503 so that I can keep a list of who is helping, when and where in Patrington.

I am looking at the morning of Wednesday 2nd June [10-12] and Sunday 6th June 2021 [4-6]. Please do get in touch if you would like to participate.

If you wish to participate but in a different area [or on a different day and time] please do still get in touch and let me know.



Chairs address 2021 – Miss C Holmes

Our last AGM was on 13th May 2019. The AGM which would have been held in May 2020 could not go ahead as the country was in the midst of the first National Lockdown due to Covid-19. I have focused in this address on activities of the last 18 months or so but I do not forget that I did not take the Chair until August 2020 and so in early 2020 when the pandemic first began to really affect the way we lived our lives Phil Wilson was the Chair. He made a valuable contribution to this parish council and the way we adapted to that crisis for which we thank him.
There was no guideline to follow of how a parish council should continue to operate during a pandemic and yet we did continue to operate efficiently and effectively. I would like to thank Our Clerk and all Councillors for the way that they met the challenge which befell us. We met it together with the only two tools we had at our disposal:
(1) Our desire to care for our community and
(2) Our willingness to adapt to get the job done.
When we were unable to hold face to face meetings we adapted to communication over email and WhatsApp to ensure that planning applications were still considered and commented upon. Despite our restricted ability at times to meet in person we have still benefited from the addition of 3 new councillors since that first national lockdown Councillors Golby, Heeley and Heap. They are valued Councillors as are those who have participated in this parish council for many years.
We sought out information which would be beneficial to parishioners and distributed it. Our Parish Council has continued to be represented throughout on both the [South Holderness Association for Parish Enterprise] and the Holderness Health Forum via zoom meetings through myself and councillor Bearpark. Any information which may have been beneficial to parishioners from those forums or from ERYC was distributed through the website and thereafter others distributed it more widely online. Through SHAPE and also through our clerk we maintained close contact with Humberside police so that the Police were aware of local issues of concern and able to act upon them.
Just as the activities individuals could undertake were curtailed there were restrictions to what the parish council could undertake. Throughout we have maintained a positive attitude focusing on what we could still do as opposed to what we could not. We could not for example hold a full Christmas light switch on but everything which could safely be done was done. The Christmas lights and tree were in place for all to enjoy with a Christmas message put on the website and in local press. Social media was used to celebrate key dates such as the Pumpkin trail, Christmas house decorating and Easter competition. It is hoped that those who participated in these online events found them enjoyable but their importance went beyond mere enjoyment. They reminded people that even though we had to socially distance, we were all part of a community. These online events provided a forum to celebrate but they were also a way of including those who were vulnerable and had to isolate because it was a media that could be viewed from within their home and reminded them that they
were part of that larger community and very much cared for. A lot of work was done by councillors and our Clerk individually ensuring that all parishioners received all that they needed such as deliveries of food and prescriptions and regular checks. We have welcomed a new chemist to the village who has renovated the store and introduced contactless payment. Other businesses have also adapted such as the introduction of the automated payment system at the garage which means there is now access to fuel 24 7. Our High Street and local services are valuable to us and the community and we as a parish council will do all that we can to support them.
As a parish council, we focused our efforts on the physical and mental wellbeing of parishioners. The Village Hall and Recreation Club were unable to open due to covid restrictions but we were conscious that those facilities that parishioners could still safely enjoy were more important than ever. We did all that we could to ensure that people had clean, open spaces for wellbeing. . Thank you to everyone who was involved in the hanging of the Hanging baskets and taking them down at the end of the season ready for use the next year. A new watering barrow was purchased to maintain them. Councillors undertook individual litter picks because group work was advised against. The Churchyard, playing field, cemetery and areas around the village and Patrington Haven continued to be maintained and the grass cut. The Ted Hughes walk was promoted on the website. The Parish Council did everything possible to combat people who did not pick up after their dog renewing signage and stencils and also promoting that a hardline was being taken on dog fouling online, in the media and on the radio.
We ensured that the public toilets stayed open and were well maintained so that the key workers helping care for those in our community had the facilities they needed to keep going. We invested in improving those facilities to ensure they were safe increasing the cleaning, regularly fogging them and installing sinks which could be used without touching the taps.
During times we could have meetings, we had 2 meetings where parishioners attended to ask questions. At some point in the future, I would like to encourage a higher attendance at meetings by members of the public to improve communication and aid an understanding of the parish council’s function but that is not something that can be encouraged until it is safe to do so. Throughout we have kept lines of communication with parishioners open even when meetings were restricted with contact through telephone and email.
Due to good fiscal planning we were able to achieve these things and not to increase the precept when the time came, conscious as we were that any increased cost to the tax payer had to be avoided. Thank you to all the Councillors for their support throughout the year. Thank you to our Clerk Diane for continuing to do a very good job. We will continue to provide the best service that we can to our parish in the future.


Patrington Parish Council are deeply saddened to learn of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and we send our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathy to Her Majesty The Queen and members of the Royal Family.

Due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions there will be no books of condolence available across the East Riding, but anyone wishing to leave a message of sympathy can do so via the Buckingham Palace website

Applications invited for post of Parish Caretaker

The Parish Caretaker will support the existing team to keep Patrington village neat and tidy and ensure that the facilities for which the Parish Council are responsible are well maintained.

The Village Caretaker would be responsible for keeping the village free from litter, maintaining the Parish Council’s assets, public spaces, footpaths and bridleways, and looking after the playgrounds and burial ground.  The Caretaker needs to be flexible in their approach to work, which needs to be prioritised according to the needs of the changing seasons.  The tasks carried out by the Caretaker would be varied and would rely on the Caretaker being able to establish an organised method of working.

Applications are encouraged from those with an existing work history and skill set who want to put those skills to work for the benefit of their community but also those who want to progress their work experience and gain valuable new skills.  As such the rate of pay and scope of the role are dependant upon level of experience.  It is envisaged that the role will be approximately 16 hours per week.  Minimum age 16 years of age.

Interested parties should contact the Chair on or 07912346503 by Sunday 11th April 2021.

Will you get the COVID-19 vaccine when it’s your turn?

With the Covid-19 vaccine rollout in progress for priority groups, East Riding of Yorkshire Council would like to know more about what people in our area think about the vaccine.

Please click here to complete the ERYC survey


Getting out and about during winter


Over 70s are asked to contact the NHS to have their COVID-19 vaccine

The NHS in Humber, Coast and Vale is asking people aged 70 and over who haven’t been invited to have their COVID-19 vaccination yet to come forward and arrange a jab.

Until now, the NHS asked people not to contact them about their COVID vaccination and wait until they are approached. This remains the case for most people, but local NHS services are encouraging people in priority cohorts 1-4 (over 70s and those on the shielded patient list) to contact the NHS to book their appointment to ensure everyone in this group is offered the vaccine by mid-February.

Eligible people can book their appointment at one of the large sites, either in York or Hull by contacting the national booking service at Those who cannot do it online can call a free 119 number, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week. The national system allows patients to pick a convenient location and time. For those over 70 who cannot travel to York or Hull, there are seven PCN vaccination sites across East Riding of Yorkshire located in Beverley, Bridlington, Brough, Driffield, Goole, Hedon and Willerby. To book an appointment at one of these sites people can ring their GP Practice. Only people in priority cohorts 1-4 who have not received a vaccine invitation should ring.

It’s important to note that if someone receives a letter from the NHS to book with the national system, and they already have an appointment booked with their local GP practice, then please ignore the letter and keep the existing appointment.

Dr Anne Jeffreys, local GP and East Riding of Yorkshire CCC Chairperson, said: “Healthcare colleagues in East Riding of Yorkshire have been doing a fantastic job to vaccinate people in the first four priority groups, but we want to ensure that all those who are eligible, have been offered the jab.

“We know that people over 70 and those on shielded patient list, are particularly vulnerable to coronavirus. It’s important that they come forward if they haven’t had their vaccine yet. I urge everyone to check with their parents, grandparents, relatives, neighbours and friends who are 70 years old and over if they have been vaccinated. If they haven’t had the vaccine yet, please help them book an appointment as soon as possible. We are determined that nobody should be left behind.

“The vaccine is safe, simple, and will offer you and those around you crucial protection against this virus.”

East Riding of Yorkshire Council launches Winter Grant Scheme

A discretionary grant scheme to help households struggling in the run up to Christmas has been launched.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has launched the scheme to support those most in need with the cost of food, energy (such as heating, cooking and lighting), water bills (including sewerage) and other essentials (such as sanitary products), warm clothing, soap, blankets, boiler service/repair, and purchase of equipment including fridges, freezers and ovens.

The Winter Grant Scheme is funded from one-off central Government funding announced on 10 November 2020 called the Winter Support Grant, which enables local authorities to provide financial support to those most in need this year.

To help ensure fairness of applications and access to the grant across the winter for those who need it, East Riding of Yorkshire Council will implement the Winter Grant Scheme as a discretionary scheme across multiple time periods until the one-off funding has been fully utilised.

Period one of the scheme will cover the period 1 November to 31 December 2020. Applications for period one will need to be received by Sunday, 20 December.

It is expected that the discretionary funding available will not be sufficient to provide support to all residents, therefore period one will target and prioritise support for the following:

  • to support households with children, where the applicant meets the criteria to entitle a child to free school meals
  • to support households who have claimed universal credit since 23 March and income is less than £16,000 annually
  • to support individuals who have a social care package and have seen an increase in their household food and fuel since 23 March 2020
  • to support individuals where their annual income is less than £13,600 annually.

Councillor Richard Burton, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “This year has been extremely challenging for some of our residents and I am heartened that we have the Winter Grant Scheme available to support those in need.

“Knowing that this grant will make the difference of keeping children warm and well fed over Christmas, or offering those residents struggling to cope financially the peace of mind that they can manage a difficult winter, is an indicator that East Riding of Yorkshire Council continues to do all it can to support those in need at the end of an unprecedented year.”

For more information, criteria for the grants and how to apply, go to

Where residents may not be eligible for this grant, the council has a benefit eligibility checker, this can be used to see if you are entitled to other forms of financial support

The council also has an emergency assistance scheme available to residents who have had an interruption to their income and where they require support to remain in the community.

A Patrington Christmas by Chair Claire Holmes



The Parish Council have received the following update regarding the roadworks on the A1033 at Winestead:

More flag news

Council Chairman Phil Wilson presenting a flag to Guys Sparkes, owner of Patrington Haven Leisure Park.  Flags are now flying at PHLP and in the village.


Flying the flag

WHEN Patrington Parish Council decided it needed a flag to be flown at various locations in the parish, pupils at Patrington Academy were invited to submit designs for the new flag.

Dozens of entries were received and councillors selected elements from some of them for the final design.

However one entry, from six-year-old Annabelle Harris, really appealed to them for its idea of combining the names of Patrington, Patrington Haven and Winestead in the shape of a goal post.

Last Friday Council Chairman Phil Wilson visited the school to present one of the flags to be flown at the school, along with a certificate of thanks and some vouchers to a very surprised Annabelle at the school assembly.

A number of flags have been purchased and these will be flown at the village cenotaph and also at Patrington Haven Leisure Park. A site is being sought in Winestead.

Mr Wilson praised the pupils for the great submissions and said it was good to involve them in their future part in parish life.

Notice of Annual Parish meeting

Annual Parish Meeting Agenda 2019


How we are working with East Riding of Yorkshire Council with regards to dog fouling.

Our parish/town council has been invited to enter into a dog control partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council. We know that dog fouling is of concern to residents and so we have decided to join the partnership.

The aim of the partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council is to build close links between their dog wardens and ourselves, to provide a better service in responding to fouling and to deter it from happening in the first place.

The training will provide Patrington Parish Councillors with the knowledge and appreciation of how to provide the evidence needed to prove an offence under the dog control orders. As residents of Patrington Parish, Councillors will now be keeping an eye out for fouling problems and talking to dog walkers in our parish/town. We will be carrying out joint patrols with the council’s dog wardens over the next few months to learn first-hand how they deal with the problem.

The great majority of dog walkers do pick up after their dog and get really annoyed with the few who don’t as they don’t want to be “tarred with the same brush.” There is no excuse for not picking up.

If you have any information on those responsible for allowing dogs to foul without picking up you can contact us on (01964 630554) or (

Blindness in children from dog fouling caused by Toxocara canis

Whilst the problem should not be exaggerated, it is necessary for dog owners and the public to know what they need to do to minimise the risk.

Toxocara canis is a parasite that lives inside dogs’ bodies. It is a round, white worm (looks like spaghetti) and it infects, most frequently, pregnant nursing bitches and young puppies.

Once ingested they can travel around the body, usually causing little problem.  Very rarely though, they can settle in the soft tissue of the retina of the eye, where damage or even blindness can be caused, approximately 50 cases a year are recorded.

Preventative measures include:

  • Worm your dog properly both as a puppy and as an adult.
  • Clean up after your dog has fouled.
  • Prevent dogs from licking your hands and face.
  • Ensure hands are washed after playing on grassed areas where dogs are allowed and where dogs or puppies have been handled.

If you have any information on owners not cleaning up after their dogs please contact the dog warden.

Tel: (01482) 396301

Using litter bins for dog waste

Some residents have asked us if they can put dog faeces in litter bins.

We can confirm that all East Riding of Yorkshire Council litter bins may be used for disposing of bagged up dog waste collected whilst walking your dog.  If anyone leaves bags of dog waste on trees, bushes, the base of a lamp post etc. they are committing a littering offence that may also be punished by way of a £75 fixed penalty being issued.

If you would like to report an offender, please ring the dog warden.

Tel: (01482) 396301

or contact the streetscene team to report a littering offence or to report a full litter bin.

Tel: (01482) 393939

Reports can also be made through the council’s website at

Risk to livestock from dog faeces

Local Farmers have asked the Parish Council if anything can be done to reduce the amount of dog faeces deposited on their land.

This is because there is growing evidence of the links between two specific diseases in livestock and the presence on grazing land of faeces from dogs.

They are

  • ‘neosporosis’ which can cause abortions in cattle, and
  • ‘sarcocystosis’ which can cause neurological disease and death in sheep.

We are therefore asking members of the public to be extra vigilant when exercising their dogs on grazing pastures and always clean up after their dogs.

Both diseases can also be picked up by dogs from infected animal matter.  To minimise the risk of picking up the parasites, dogs, including farm dogs, should not be allowed to eat material from dead animals, or leftover birth materials such as placentas.

Often the parasites cause no symptoms in dogs, but sometimes the disease of neosporosis can seriously affect your dog’s health and possibly result its death.

For public and animal health reasons and for the benefit of other people enjoying the outdoors, dog walkers should always clean up after their dogs.  Anyone can also contact the East Riding of Yorkshire Council dog wardens to pass on information about irresponsible dog owners.
