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:
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
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.
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.
