The Parish Council have produced a Welcome Pack which is hoped to be a useful quick reference guide of information and contacts that may be of interest relating to the village. All newcomers to the village will have a pack given to them as they settle in, however existing villagers may also find it helpful as refresh of information.

It was brought to the Parish Council’s attention some months back that Park Leisure 2000 Ltd were looking to withdraw their investment from Allerthorpe Golf Club.
Due diligence was carried on the site out by new interested parties and Heidi Beattie of Park Leisure has confirmed that as of 13 March 2020 Allerthorpe Golf and Country Park Limited are the new owners under directorship of Matthew Knowles.
A meeting has been requested between the Parish Council, Matthew Knowles and East Yorkshire Riding Council with the aim to initiate a positive relationship from the outset.

Calling local farmers and landowners
Nature conservation charity, the RSPB, would love to hear from local farmers and land managers in who are interested in helping nature thrive on their land.
The Yorkshire Wolds and Coast is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK and has huge potential to provide even more homes for important farmland birds, as well as other animals from butterflies and bees to hares and hedgehogs.
As a result, RSPB conservation advisor Chris Tomson is offering free advice and support to anyone in the area who wants to manage their land in a more wildlife-friendly way.
As well as advice, the RSPB is also offering farmers in the Yorkshire Wolds and Coast area free farmland bird surveys. These stock takes will show what wildlife makes its home on a farm and, when repeated at a later date, will reveal how a farmer’s efforts are producing real results for wildlife.
Farmers interested in chatting to Chris about giving nature a home on their land can call him on 07900 164 601 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dog fouling is offensive and unhealthy. Not only is it a nuisance causing soiled shoes and clothing, but it can also cause serious diseases caused by the roundworm Toxocara.
It is an offence under the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996 not to clean up after your dog if it fouls. If you are caught you will receive a fixed penalty notice of £75, which if not paid, could result in possible prosecution where the maximum penalty then is £1000.
It is the responsibility of ALL of us to challenge any dog owner that we see in the street not cleaning up after their dog
When your dog has done its business…
Pick up after your dog.
