WW1 Centenary Commemorations
Plans for the village wide event to mark 100 years since the end of WW1 are progressing. Residents are crafting poppies to be used in a spectacular village display. They can be knitted, crocheted or made from felt. Size and shade are not important but if you want a guide here is a suggested Pop into the Knit and Natter session at North Ferriby Library, 1pm on Tuesdays if you need help to get started, or if you just want a natter. On Sunday 1st July the knit and natter group will be in Coronation Gardens working on their poppies and we encourage you all to have a look at this piece of art in creation.  All donations of poppies are gratefully received and you can download the knitting pattern (pdf)

Over the weekend of 10th - 11th November you will be able to visit the Villagers at War exhibition at the Village Hall and the knitted poppies will be on display in the Church along with information about the 24 men from North Ferriby who lost their lives during WW1 and who are commemorated on the war memorial.

On Sunday 11th November the village will be taking part in the National Event, Battle’s Over, which will start at 6am at the War Memorial with an individual piper playing the traditional Scottish lament played at the end of battle – Battle’s O’er. The parade of Remembrance will set off from the Social Club at around 10.20am and parade to the war memorial, and then on to the Church for the service at 11am. The Villagers at War Exhibition will also show the Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph from 10.50am.

At the end of the day the village will join with over 1000 other locations in lighting the beacon at 7pm to symbolise an end to the darkness of war and a return to the light of peace and at 7.05pm the Church Bells will ring out across the Nation, and beyond, in celebration of Peace.

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
The 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. Contact us and to register for regular news on screenings at the Village Hall, visit ferribyvillagehall.org.uk/home/activities/Cinema/ or email info@ferribyvillagehall.org.uk and put “Cinema” in the subject box to add you to our mailing list.
