Digital Skills
Digital skills are essential to get involved in the modern world, from booking holidays, to accessing learning, checking when your bin will be emptied, to renewing your library books – the digital world opens a lot of doors to information and opportunities, and potentially great savings of both time and money. If you are reading this you probably know the basics but if you know someone who might benefit from a short introduction suggest they go along ton one of these:

Hessle Centre, Tuesday 12 June, from 10am - 12 noon
Swanland Library, Wednesdays 23 May & 27 June, from 9 - 11am
Willerby Library, Thursday 21 June, from 2 - 4pm

Frustrated by litter on the A63 and surrounding roads?
The annual ERYC clean-up of the A63 commenced on 26th February and will take 15 nights to complete from North Cave to the Hull border, subject to weather conditions. The council would like to work with interested parties to bring those responsible for littering to account. Please see below a request from enforcement officers at East Riding Council.

Littering is a criminal offence and therefore it must be proven beyond reasonable doubt that the person or businesses is in fact the party responsible. We would therefore need witnesses who are willing to come forward to contact the council with details as to what they have witnessed including vehicles details, dates and times of any incidences of littering. This will then enable us consider appropriate further action in an attempt to improve the situation. I very much hope that local residents are willing and able to assist us in this.

Reporting littering incidences and littering from vehicles can be done online via the council's website by searching for littering. We would urge when reporting that people do not do this anonymously as without a name to support the report we cannot take further action.

Post Box Alternative
T he post box at the former Post Office is no longer in use. Letters can be handed in over the counter at the new Post Office from where there are two collections a day, one between 11.30am and 12 noon, and the second one at 5pm.

Closure & Relocation of Swanland GP surgery
If you are a patient at the Swanland Surgery, or you know someone who is, be aware that a consultation is now ongoing with the proposal being to close the surgery and relocate it to opposite the Spire Hospital in Anlaby.

Health Through Warmth Scheme
In the recent cold weather, many people reached for the thermostat, which is why the Npower Health Through Warmth scheme is raising awareness of the impact that warmth in the home can have on health and well being. The scheme is managed locally by East Riding of Yorkshire Council. For full details see pdf file.

Quality Cinema in the heart of the Village
If you enjoy a good film, but find the trek into Hull or Beverley tiresome, especially in winter, or if you long to see a favourite on the big screen, rather than on TV, then “Ferriby Screen” could be just what you have been waiting for. Plans include longer films, for autumn and winter Sunday afternoons and a cinema society membership for art and minority interest films. We welcome your suggestions.
