Editor’s Notes

Hello everyone and A Happy New Year. Once again we start the year with another battle against the Wind Turbines.  The Parish Council have put together a survey which is enclosed herewith.

Please support the fight against yet more turbines in our area, Apparently we are already way above the national quota for energy production in East Yorkshire. Sorry to get a bit political but I feel strongly on this.

The Missing Cockerel

One morning in early December Mike Welton noticed something amiss in the Village. The cockerel weather vane on the top of the church tower was missing.  He went round to see Bill Keyworth and with the Church Warden’s permission, Bill went up the Tower to find that the cockerel had blown off the top of the pole and was lying on the roof.

Bill carried it down and decided that he could repair the damaged tail and arrow.  A new pole would also be needed along with new stays to put it back into place.

Bill set about repairing the bird and arrow, begging parts from friends and buying where he could not beg them.  On a fine frosty Sunday morning Bill gathered together a band of willing volunteers to help erect the new pole, with the cockerel on top, back onto the roof of the Church Tower.

As the cockerel appeared above the parapets cheers went up from the small crowd that had gathered below,  and  the  arrow pointed  in

the correct wind direction!  On behalf of the Village I am sure that we all wish to give a big vote of thanks to Bill and his group of friends who made this possible as the weather vane looks magnificent.

We would like to thank the Committee of the New Years Eve Dance, held in the Community Hall.  It was a great ‘do’ and enjoyed by 13 year olds to over 80’s all dancing!

The dance floor was full all night, supper lovely and the group superb, the extra entertainment as usual was Well, words can’t describe it- well done the Morris Dancers!

There will be another Quiz at the White Horse in March, date to be advised watch out for posters.

Live Theatre Event

The show presented by the Badapple Theatre Company ‘A Yorkshire Christmas Carol’ by Kay Bramley was a huge success.  An excellent adaptation of the story, excellent actors and so very humorous.  Sarah Smith would like to say how very grateful she was that it was well supported and wants to thank everyone who came along and enjoyed the play and also a big thank you those who helped out.  I would like to add my thank to Sarah for her hard work.

Spurn, Kilnsea & Easington Area Local Studies

Work is intensifying on the Village Heritage Trail and members are all pulling together to meet end of January deadlines for spending.  Some leeway has been given by the Funders and they are allowing more time to complete some of the works and have the Launch.

We now hope to have the Launch in April, a much more suitable time and hopefully the Trail book will be available.

The Group are trying to put a programme together for this year but have been under a lot of pressure.  It is hoped to have an interesting programme of talks and outing.

The first talk is by Richard Swales on Antarctica on the 20th March.  Watch out for Posters all welcome, no charge for entry. Unfortunately we won’t be having having an exhibition this year folks, sorry.
