Allotment Project

The Parish Council is currently considering setting up allotment plots on Long Lane / a plot of land adjoining the Village Hall…… the project is in its early stages with many matters to be determined, including timeframe, however the first step is to establish GENUINE / SERIOUS interest in taking on a plot and is inviting GENUINE / SERIOUS expressions of interest in order for the Parish Council to determine if to proceed with the project.

Plots are likely to differ in size and cost but will be in the region of £20 - £30 per annum and formal tenancy agreements will be put in place which any potential tenants would be expected to observe

Any residents who would be interested in undertaking a tenancy please email (preferred) or write to the Parish Clerk entitled 'Expression of Interest for an Allotment Plot', with your name and contact details no later than Monday, 15th February.

Email             woodmanseyparishclerk@yahoo.com

Address        27 Willowgarth, Eastrington Village, Nr Howden. DN14 7QP

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.


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.

Coronavirus and Parish Meetings (Updated September 2020)


In light of continued guidance and advice from regional Local Government bodies (including ERYC) with regard to Coronavirus, for the foreseeable future Parish Meetings will be held remotely (on-line) and managed by Zoom in order to protect Cllrs and the public. This will be discussed and reviewed by Cllrs at each Parish Meeting.


Meetings are still held the third Monday in each month and commence at 7pm. These meetings are still open to the public and anyone wishing to join a meeting should contact the Clerk for directions on how to do this prior to the meeting (at the point the notice is posted).


You will need access to a PC / Laptop or similar desktop device. A smartphone can be used, but connectivity may not be as good. If you have any questions please contact the Clerk on woodmanseyparishclerk@yahoo.com or 07749 387757





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


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 provided

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