The last meeting of the 2007-2011 Parish Council On Tuesday, 5th April, at 7pm the present Parish Council will have its last meeting. For the agenda and minutes of previous meetings, see the Easington Parish web site at www.easingtonparish.com

People wishing to put themselves forward as prospective councillors have to present their nomination papers to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Beverley, between 24th March and noon on 4th April.

At the time of writing we don’t know if it will be a contested election. Easington Parish has nine councillors. If nine or less people put in nomination papers, they will be elected automatically.

If there are ten or over there will be an election. Voting will take place at Easington Community Hall on Thursday 5th May. Don’t forget to vote.

Your Ward Councillors will also be up for election and there is a referendum about the AV vote.

The first meeting of the new Parish Council will take place on Monday 16th May at 7pm.

Annual Parish Meeting at 7pm on Monday, April 18th in the Hall.

This is a meeting open to everyone in the parish. The Chairman of the Parish Council will give his annual report, and representatives of various parish bodies can also report on their organisations.

This is not a Parish Council meeting, but is open to everyone in the parish to come along and air their views.

Please come along and find out what is happening in your parish, highlight any problems, or even compliment those who are working for the good of the community.

Glass Recycling Bank Easington

The glass bank, situated on Hull Road in Easington, has been recently adopted by Easington Primary School. This means that representatives from the school will keep an eye on the bank and report back to the council if it gets full, damaged or the area gets untidy.

The School will also promote the use of the glass bank to maximise recycling rates. In return, the School will receive payments which will be spent on projects to support the local environment.

Please help your environment by recycling your glass bottles and jars.

Talk on the history of Spurn Bird Observatory.

On Tuesday, April 19th, the Spurn, Kilnsea and Easington Area Local Studies Group (Skeals) will be holding its AGM at 7pm.  Following the (brief) AGM, Dr. Ian Glaves will give a light-hearted illustrated talk entitled ‘The History of Spurn Bird Observatory’.

Dr. Glaves, a past Chairman of the Observatory, has been associated with it for many years.

Here is your chance to find out more about the history and activities of this famous bird observatory, which was established in 1945. Refreshments will be available. Entrance is free and all are welcome. You do not need to be a member of Skeals.

Village Trail

Skeals have been exploring the possibility of producing a Village Trail and have decided to go ahead with the project. We would like to invite local Community Groups, Primary School and the Gas Sites to become involved.

A Coffee Morning will be held on the 21st May to which everyone is encouraged to come and give their ideas.  Let us know how and if they would like to become involved.

Read This, Read This, Read This.

Believe it or not, we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Easington Youth Club during 2011. We have tried to establish the exact date that the Youth Club opened, without success.

However, we have asked several people who would be likely to know and we have eventually decided that it was probably opened in 1961, but obviously not in its current premises.

However,   if   anyone  knows the      exact     year     or     date,

please let anyone from the committee know, or contact the editor of the Newsletter.

During this year, we will be arranging several events to celebrate the anniversary. We have already launched the celebrations with a Coffee Morning on 5th March and there will be a Community Show in the Youth Club towards the end of May.

Further details will be published on posters and on notice boards throughout the village. Later in the year there will be a Gala-type event and possibly other events still to be arranged.

We hope that everyone will come along to enjoy the events. You do not need to have a relative attending the youth club, everyone is welcome.

Those people who have not been to the Youth Club will be pleasantly surprised. It is warm, clean and very welcoming. It has also recently passed a Health and Safety inspection. So, please join us and help us to celebrate.

If anyone has any old photographs of any youth club members, past leaders or activities, we would be very pleased to see them. They will be returned a soon as possible.

The trip to Glasshoughton, near Castleford, last month was a great success. This calls for another visit later in the year. Doncaster looks like being the next trip in April. Arrangements yet to be made.

The next trip after that will be in June if Joan and I find our way back from France in time. Interpol have been notified of our arrival.
