Playground and Park Re-opened

The Parish Council is pleased to advise that the Park and Playground on Brigg Lane is now open in time for the summer holidays.  The playground features new equipment which Cllrs hope everyone will enjoy and use safely and sensibly.

The Parish Council has carried out a risk assessment in line with Government guidance for reopening of playgrounds, and identified measures necessary to reduce the risk of infection of Covid-19 for those who use the playground – these are outlined below and on the link to the notice which will be posted at the playground.  It is important to note that Cllrs have a direct responsibility to monitor the playground and ensure that the risk assessment is being observed by members of the public for their own safety and well-being.  If Cllrs feel that this is not the case then they will have no choice but to close the playground again.  The risk assessment measures necessary to reduce the risk of infection of Covid-19 are:

  • if you or any member of your household has coronavirus symptoms or are self-isolating, then you must not visit our playground
  • no more than 10 people should be in the playground at any time and try and limit your visit to one hour to allow others to use the playground.
  • only one parent / guardian should enter the playground to supervise their child or children and only children from the same household or bubble should use a piece of play equipment at the same time
  • you and your children should stay at least 2 metres apart from others unless they are from the same household or bubble – or 1 metre if you are wearing face coverings
  • sanitise your children’s hands before and after they use the equipment – scientific advice suggests that the virus can survive for up to several days on some hard surfaces. It is recommended you sanitise hands after using each piece of equipment in the playground
  • there should be no eating or drinking while in the playground and encourage children to avoid putting their mouths on equipment, their hands in their mouths, or to touch their face
  • leave the playground clean and tidy for others, take your litter home with you or put it any bins provided

The notice for the playground is below

Complaints of Parking on Pavements / Near to Junctions

The Parish Council has received several complaints from residents about cars being parked on pavements, causing problems for the elderly, disabled and people with pushchairs, having to to walk out onto the road.  This is an increasing problem throughout the village but particularly bad at the moment in Millfield Drive, and is especially difficult to understand when people have driveways which they are not using.

It is illegal to cause an obstruction on roads and pavements and near junctions (Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986) and residents parking on pavements and junctions can be reported to the police who can impose on the spot fines.

The Parish Council hopes this can be avoided and encourages all drivers to be considerate of others and not park on pavements or on the edge of junctions.


Thank you

Concerns for Dog Fouling in the Village

Report Dog Fouling


The Parish Council shares the concerns of many residents who have reported an increase in dog fouling in the village. A minority of irresponsible dog owners are not cleaning up after their dogs on pavements, open areas and even more worryingly, grassed play areas.

The Parish Council will be working with Selby District Council’s Dog Warden to proactively manage this problem in the village and dog owners are reminded that they can be fined up to £1,000 if they do not clean up after their dog.

We would encourage anyone witnessing a dog fouling incident to report this to any of the Parish Councillors, Parish Clerk or alternatively Selby District Council, via their website

Dog owners – when walking your dog

We would ask all dog walkers to note that all the public grass areas in the village (the park, Millennium Garden and Memorial Garden) are out of bounds for dogs, even on leads. These areas are clearly sign posted as no dog areas.  Please respect these restrictions.

The Parish Council will take legal action against anyone who wilfully and intentionally ignores these signs
