NEAR MISS ACCIDENTS 

There is increasing concern about car parking at various points throughout the village.

The ERYC Highways Department does not perceive this to be a problem as there is no history of incidents or accidents occurring.

It is important therefore that any minor bump or scrape to vehicles or a near miss is reported to the Highways Authority. Contact:  Email: highway.dm@eastriding.gov.uk                                     

You should report incidents of speeding or other anti-social driving behaviour to the local police service using the 101 non-emergency number

 

 

Take Care – Stay vigilant. Scammers are not always on the internet or telephone

The Royal Mail has requesting the Parish Council to help raise the level of public awareness of the volume of Scam  Mail being delivered to households.
 Since 2014 over 4 million suspect items have been intercepted before delivery and whilst the Royal Mail and postal workers take every precaution, some mail will still get through.
If you have any doubt or concern about receiving suspicious mail please contact either the Royal Mail Scam Mail Helpline 0800 0113 466,
or,
e-mail     scam.mail@royalmail.com
