It was noted that under Matters Arising, Yorkshire Water should read Environment Agency.


Matters Arising

Letters have been received from Helen Richardson regarding repairs to the damage done to verges.

A form has been received from Mike Peeke regarding the bench.  Permission has been given for us to site the bench at the crossroads, and this will be the responsibility of the Council.

Graham Betts can give advice on available grants.  Internet searches will be left to Cllr. J. Sizer and Cllr. L. Payne and be discussed at a later date.


Declaration of Interest

There were no declarations of interest.



The end of year accounts were put before Councillors and discussed.  Recycling payments have proved to be more successful than originally thought. The renewal premium for insurance on the Village Hall is now due.  An invoice has been received from Zurich Municipal in the sum of £347.76p.  A cheque was raised in this amount. Cllr. M. Turnbull proposed that £500 be drawn from the bank in cash to buy materials for the play area.  This was agreed.  Cllr. M. Turnbull will be responsible for the money and provide receipts for the materials purchased.


Major's Acre

Cllr. M. Turnbull suggested we seek legal advice on this matter from Andrew Cooney of Lockings. It was agreed that one hour's legal advice be arranged.  An Invoice is to be sent to Mr. Major for the Peppercorn rent for 2006 and the arrears for 2004 and 2005.  It was agreed that this matter must be sorted out now and put on a proper legal footing.  This would protect future Councils from disputes over the land.  Until we have had legal advice the fencing work will be left.

Proposed:   Cllr. M. Turnbull

Seconded:  Cllr. P. Payne

Vote:  carried unanimously



There are now 4 caravans on this site.   None  of  the residents are on the electoral register. Cllr. M. Turnbull will contact East Riding Council to clarify the situation and see what can be done to rectify the problem.


Stothard's Yard

This item to be deferred to the next meeting.



A letter has been received from the Holderness Vikings asking for financial help to buy a new rugby strip.  It was agreed to write refusing their request, and wishing them well for the future.


Public Speaking

Mrs. Beadle thanked Cllr. J. F. Robinson for arranging for the holes in the road on the approach to the river bank be filled in.  This is big improvement, and makes the road much safer.


Meeting closed at 8.40 p.m.


Date of next meeting:   2nd May 2006
