Happy New Year To One And All

Well done to everyone who made the effort with the Christmas lights and decorations and a Big Thank you to Santa (Chris Jacobs and his helper Helen) for bringing a bit of magic to Christmas morning. I hope you all had a good Christmas.

Congratulations to Peggy Eves who has her 90th Birthday this week.  Peggy is a very active lady she attends Whist Drives, Church and Coffee Mornings regularly and enjoys her garden. Well Done Peggy.

Our good wishes go to Geoff Sugden who suffered broken bones due to the ice and we hope he makes a speedy     recovery.  I would like to   extend a vote of thanks  to Geoff for all the running about he did, transporting people to and from events during the terrible weather prior to his accident.  He is certainly   going to be missed in the kitchen at the Coffee Mornings for a while.

It was with great sadness that we learned of the death of Paul Coggins.  Our sympathies go to Jackie, Hannah, Jacob, Baby Jack and all the family.  Paul was the Terminal Manager at BP Easington for some time but had been working in London more recently.

Also having just learned of the death of our dear former Easington School Teacher Mrs. Eyre, we would like to send condolences to the family.

On 13th December, most of the village missed a really good night at Easington Youth Club. The occasion was the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award presentation night when 4 young people gave an excellent presentation  about  their  exciting

but arduous ordeal in North Yorkshire when they underwent the 4 day expedition as part of their journey to achieving a Gold Award.

Adam Douglas; Paige Conlan; Patrick Tomlinson and Jodie Biglin, all from Easington, suffered the most arctic conditions during the 4 day expedition, when it never stopped raining.  They travelled a total of 54 Kms, approx 35 miles, all on foot and sleeping under canvas (actually synthetic tents in this day and age!).  It was so cold that one of the group began to suffer from hypothermia and had to be warmed up slowly.

The assessor, Trevor from Pickering, was most impressed with their teamwork, determination and tenacity in such adverse weather conditions and commended them all on their achievement.

Family and friends enjoyed the presentation when they watched a slide show of their journey and sampled the type of food that was available during the weekend, which had to be carried for the whole weekend (no shops were available or allowed – everything they needed had to be carried in their backpacks).

Tea and coffee and some excellent baking by the young people was also provided to those who attended the presentation.

The young people themselves were keen to thank Christina Keyworth who had supported and mentored them during the months of preparation before the expedition.

Congratulations to them all and I'm sure they are looking forward to completing the award and travelling to London to receive the award from the Duke of Edinburgh.

SKEALS Donation To The Humber Lifeboat

The Spurn, Kilnsea and Easington Area Local Studies Group (SKEALS) decided to dedicate their fund-raising efforts in 2010 to the Humber Lifeboat at Spurn, which is celebrating 200 years of life-saving.

An exhibition was held in August at Easington Community Hall, to celebrate the 200th anniversary, and SKEALS had collection boxes at the Welwick Heritage Weekend.

Money was also raised at the SKEALS photographic exhibition in October.  SKEALS’s third publication, Easington Lifeboat: a history 1919 - 1933 by Mike Welton, was published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the Spurn lifeboat, and a pound from the sale of each copy went to the Humber Lifeboat Appeal.

On Thursday, December 16th 2010, six Skeals members visited the lifeboat station at Spurn, and Vice-Chairman of SKEALS, Mike Welton, presented a cheque for £960.53 to the Superintendent Coxswain, Dave Steenvoorden, who said that it was especially good to know that the local community was so appreciative of the lifeboat’s efforts.

Severe Winter Weather Fund

In late December Easington Parish Council was successful in obtaining a grant of £1,000 from the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Severe Winter Weather Fund.

With the grant the Parish Council has purchased three salt bins and a spreader in readiness for any future return of the snow and ice.

The next meeting of the Parish Council will be on Tuesday, February 1st 2011.

Jan Crowther

The Management Committee of the Easington Youth Club

Would like to thank Centrica for their kind donation of £250 towards the cost of a disabled toilet at the Youth Club.  The Club will continue to fund raise during 2011 to raise money for the disabled toilet, which is likely to cost in the region of £3000.

The Gala

The 28 years of Easington Gala is still being researched.  All information people have contributed so far has been invaluable but there are still gaps.

We are concentrating on the Queens and Attendants and needs help in finding the Queens and Retinue for 1992 and 1998.

Who was in attendance for these Queens:-

1973 Rebecca Kelly

1977 Jayne Burton

1981 Nicola St. Quinton

1982 Helen Hooson

1997 Charlotte Moverley

Photos would also be appreciated.  So far we have 13 photographs of 28 Queens.  We only want to borrow photographs and they will be returned to you in a few days.

If you come across any Gala photos such as the Gymkhanas, Fancy Dress or Pet Show entries please get in touch by phoning 650386.

The where-a-bouts of the many Trophies would also be helpful. Please, Please, Please, your help is needed.
