Allotment Project (update as of July 2021)

ERYC have recently advised the Parish Council that they will be reducing the amount of land available for the allotment project which means a reduction in the number of allotments plots the Parish Council will be able to offer (by at least ten).  Despite their disappointment at this development, Parish Cllrs have decided to continue with the project and we are currently processing paperwork sent to the Parish Council.  We also have to advise that in light of the news from ERYC, Cllrs have agreed to give priority to Woodmansey residents and to create a waiting list for anyone who is not immediately offered a plot.

We hope to be in a position to update prospective tenants who have expressed an interest in a plot in the near future. 

Please note an Expression of Interest does not commit the Parish Council to allocating you a plot at this time.

Your contact details will not be given to any third party without your permission and are requested and will be kept entirely for the reasons given above.

Humber Mid-life MOT

A new Mid-Life MOT service, a ‘one stop shop’ online platform containing free services and tools for both individuals and employers, has been developed and published by The Humber LEP, in conjunction with local partners at the National Careers Service, Money & Pension Service, Public Health England and Active Humber.

The MOT tool invites individuals to look at not just their finances, but also their health, wellbeing, and skillset, while it encourages employers to support those aged 45-plus in areas such as flexible working, pension evaluation and ensuring they are an ‘age-inclusive’ employer.

The platform highlights and redirects both individuals and employers to existing tools and services which not only offer key advice but lead the way to activities and simple steps towards meaningful action and change.

Local users will be able to access tools such as HR advice and ways of supporting an older workforce. Likewise, employees and individuals will be able to access tools to assess their finances, any upskilling opportunities, career progression possibilities or any lateral moves into growing industries in the Humber.

The Mid-Life MOT can be accessed through the following link: https://www.humberlep.org/humber-lep-encourages-businesses-and-individuals-to-embrace-the-mid-life-mot-through-new-website-and-events/

Notice of Precept Demand for Financial Year 2021 / 22

 

Each year the Parish Council must consider financial commitments for the new financial year and how to maintain the services it provides to the local community. Like most Parish Councils the main way we pay for these services is via what is called the annual precept which is an amount paid via ERYC as part of their local taxation framework.

 

A key decision each Parish Council must make each year is to decide if to increase, decrease or maintain at the current level. Woodmansey Parish Cllrs have been discussing the precept over several months and the projects, budgets, and commitments it would be facing in the new financial year. Even though the Parish Council is facing several financial demands going forwards, Cllrs believe that financial commitments can be met by existing finances and by continued careful financial management and effective budgeting. Therefore, Cllrs made the unanimous decision not to increase the precept in 2021/22 and to keep at its existing level.

 

The finances of Woodmansey Parish Council as a public body are always transparent and members of the public can see how Cllrs manage finances by viewing the monthly financial and budget reports, which posted on the website and are always discussed at the monthly Parish Meetings and to which members of the public are welcome to attend.

 

If you would like any information on any of the above, please contact the Parish Clerk.

Green Influencers

Humberside Police - Covid 19 Vaccine Scam

We have been informed about a new scam that is being circulated, but looks very believable. It starts with a text, seemingly from the NHS saying that you are now eligible to apply for the new vaccine and to click on the link to apply.

The link takes you to a website, which looks genuine and asks the user to complete a form asking for the following information.

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Address
  • Payment card details
  • Proof of address

As you can see from the above, this should automatically ring alarm bells, as we all know, the vaccine is FREE.

Please follow this advice:

  • Do NOT click on links in unknown texts - always check it first
  • NEVER give out your personal details.

With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue as fraudsters look to take advantage of the rollout.

Cold calls regarding the vaccine are also beginning to take place.

If you, or anyone you know, have been affected by this fraud or any other scam, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 1232040 or visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk.

Woodmansey Parks (Updated November 2020)

In light of Government guidelines for Parks and Playgrounds during the new nationwide lockdown, (as of 1st November) the two parks managed by the Parish Council (King Street and Southwood) will remain open for both exercise and recreation.  However this is strictly subject to the observation of the following measures taken from the risk assessment carried out by Woodmansey PC to deal with the risk of Covid-19

Notice 

In accordance with Government guidance this playground is now open. Woodmansey Parish Council has created a risk assessment to minimise risk of the transmission of Covid-19. However, it is impossible to entirely remove all risk and therefore anyone using the playground does so at their own risk and take personal responsibility for their (and their children) well-being by observing the following measures. Woodmansey Parish Council will monitor the situation and if Cllrs feel the following risk assessment measures are not being observed, it will not hesitate to close the playground again.

• if you or any member of your household has coronavirus symptoms or are self-isolating, then you must not visit our playgrounds

• no more than 10 people should be in the playground at any time and try and limit your visit to one hour to allow others to use the playground.

• only one parent / guardian should enter the playground to supervise their child or children and only children from the same household or bubble should use a piece of play equipment at the same time

 you and your children should stay at least 2 metres apart from others unless they are from the same household or bubble - or 1 metre if you are wearing face coverings

• sanitise your children’s hands before and after they use the equipment - scientific advice suggests that the virus can survive for up to several days on some hard surfaces. It is recommended you sanitise hands after using each piece of equipment in the playground

• there should be no eating or drinking while in the playground and encourage children to avoid putting their mouths on equipment, their hands in their mouths, or to touch their face

• leave the playground clean and tidy for others, take your litter home with you or put it any bins prov

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Parish Clerk on woodmanseyparishclerk@yahoo.com

Meet your Parish Councillors

Cllr Kerri Harold (Chair)

 

I'm Woodmansey born and bred and very proud of our lovely village. I've been on the parish council for 20 years now and chair for the past few.  My family and I still live in the village and love all it has to offer.

In 2007 I was elected to represent the Minster and Woodmansey Ward on East Riding of Yorkshire council. I have really enjoyed this time and particularly our parish.

Being part of the parish council has been great fun over the years; with a few headaches too! But serving this lovely community is worth it!

 

 

Cllr Amanda Beal (Deputy Chair)

I joined Woodmansey Parish Council back in 2005. My family and I have lived on Long Lane in the Parish, and we are 4th generation farmers of our little farm and have been on this property since the early 1940’s

 

Life for me is always hectic, I run the livery yard on the farm, working at all levels in the equine industry, from welfare and rescue to transporting world class horses around the country. I also work in the customer service sector, events planning and retail. It has been known to nip home from my job of selling diamonds to lamb a sheep in my lunch break! My lifestyle keeps me very diverse, and I’d like to think it’s made me a very fair and level-headed person.

I enjoy been a Cllr on Woodmansey Parish Council, I feel it’s important to be part of the local community, been involved in local projects, planning our Parish for future years, protecting our countryside, and supporting our residents needs and requirements, whether that be the people or our local wildlife

 

Cllr Emma Constable
