Youth Club News

Do you have a skill, a talent or a hobby?  Would you like to share your knowledge with others? If so, Easington Youth Club are considering projects that would run for a short period only and would like to hear from anyone who would like to come along to the youth club for a few weeks to pass on their knowledge to the young people.

Anything could be considered – knitting, crocheting, sewing, photography, fishing, mechanics, astronomy, nature, bird watching, martial arts, painting – anything that might interest other people.

If you would like to help or would like more information on what it might involve, please contact Christina Keyworth on 650651 or Pam Pearce on 650710. Thank you.

Church News

Hello from your new vicar!  My name is Rev Carol Fisher-Bailey and I look forward to meeting you.  The group of parishes I serve in stretches from Keyingham in the west through Ottringham, Winestead, Patrington and Welwick to Easington with Skeffling in the east.

I am also a governor at Easington and Patrington schools, so you may well see me somewhere!  You can also contact me by email – ladyvicar@gmail.com, or phone -01964 630327.

I am really enjoying becoming better acquainted with this unique and impressive part of East Yorkshire.

We last lived in Wawne, and I am Hull born and bred, so South Holderness is not completely new to me, but you miss the fascinating details if you are just driving through to the seaside.  The wonderful churches are jewels sewn into this beautiful landscape.

I am very pleased to be able to invite you to visit them especially at Christmas. Services at Easington and Skeffling for December and January are: 2nd December Easington 9:30am Methodist service

9th December Easington 12 noon Holy Communion

16th December Easington 9:30am Morning Prayer

18th December Skeffling 7pm Carols by Candlelight

The Evergreen’s Christmas Party will be held on the 7th December.  On behalf of all the Evergreens, I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and thanks to Di and Pam for getting this letter out and keeping us up to date with the news.

Easington Parish Enhancement Fund

Saturday, 9th January 2013 Coffee Morning & Information Event 10am onwards in the Easington Community Hall

In February 1998 the Easington Parish Enhancement Fund Sub Group was created to manage a fund of £300,000 contributed by British Gas and British Petroleum for the benefit of the parish of Easington.  Later this panel formed the ‘Wider Community Group’ which comments and advises upon applications.  Since that time £200,000 has been spent on a variety of community projects within the parish.

However, recently the fund has become slow to spend and the ‘Wider Community Group’ feel that new residents to the parish perhaps do not know about the fund. or existing community groups may feel that the application process is too difficult.

Therefore the Wider Community Group is inviting every-one to a ‘Coffee Morning’ to be held at Easington Community Hall on Saturday 19th January 2013.  The morning will include displays of all projects funded so far and the opportunity for you to comment on how the fund might be promoted and developed in the future.

The ‘Coffee Morning’ will be held in conjunction with the Community Hall Committee and will include a tombola and raffle.  For further information contact: Karen Wood, Rural Communities Officer 01482 391706 or 07789941271

Parish Council Agendas

Parish Council Minutes 3rd December

Editors Notes continued

Sadly the barrel organ is off the road this year so the Carol singing in the Square will not be on the agenda this year, unless some budding organist with a mobile keyboard would offer their services in order for this tradition to continue.

If anyone would be kind enough to offer their talents please contact me on 650498 and I will try to get hold of some carol sheets and arrange for refreshments.

Please watch out for Posters just in case.  Our grateful thanks go to Sid Rollinson, Mary Billany for the many years of pleasure they have given to us and all the other villages over the years, not forgetting the wonderful Bernard.

Football Honour

Well Done to Doug Clubley.  Doug has been involved with Easington United Football Club for 50 years.

A special celebration was held at the KC Stadium to recognize his achievements.  He was presented with a plaque by Norman Hunter (ex Leeds United and England player). Doug deserves to be honoured for his dedication to the village teams, our congratulations go to him for this great achievement.
