Make poppies for WW1 centenary commemorations

As part of the WW1 commemorations, handy residents are crafting poppies to be used in a spectacular village display in November.

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 knitting pattern (pdf)

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.

Keeping Ferriby Tidy
Thank you to all those who took part in the recent community day, Freshen Up Ferriby. Teams of individuals litter picked, gardened and painted a bus shelter. Thanks particularly to the Ferriby Cubs and Scouts who litter picked in and around Long Plantation in pouring rain and to the students of South Hunsley School who provided the brilliant art work in the bus shelter near the Co Op. Take time to visit the Woodland Walk on Riverside Walkway to see the work done by our Lifestylers. The next project will be the bus shelter opposite Tithe Farm, so look out for that in coming weeks. There is nothing to stop individuals or groups that have spotted an issue from doing something about it – just have a word with our Clerk for guidance.

If you have any concerns about litter of any sort, including dog poo, over flowing bins, how to report litter or litter droppers, you might find the following ERYC website section useful.

We know many of you get concerned about litter on the A63 and that can be reported using the above link. You can report vehicles shedding litter if you have the vehicle registration number. Here are some interesting statistics about litter on the A63
