Litter Pick 5th March – ‘Clean for the Queen’

The Parish Council is organising a litter-pick round our two villages during the weekend of the official campaign, on Saturday March 5th, meeting at the Village Hall at 10 am.
We are taking part in the “Clean for The Queen”, a campaign to clear up Britain in time for Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016.
When she came to the throne litter was not the problem that it is today. Food packaging, plastic bottles, takeaway meals and cigarette butts have all contributed to a growing menace that affects our wildlife, streets, countryside and sense of pride. What better way could we show our gratitude to Her Majesty than to clean up our country?

Refreshments will be provided in the Village Hall at Sand Hutton afterwards as a thank you!


Boxing Day Floods

Like many parts of Yorkshire, Claxton and Sand Hutton suffered from flooding on Boxing Day. Our thoughts are with anyone who had property damaged by the flood water.
The community rallied around so well on the 26th – neighbours helping neighbours, opening drain covers, clearing roadside grates, slowing down traffic. It was a great relief that the water subsided quickly but it is clear that the land around the villages is still completely saturated with rainwater.

Ryedale District Council have produced a leaflet with advice for householders which includes various contact numbers:-

If you are worried that floodwater is going to enter your property, remember that you can ring Ryedale District Council 01653 600666 and request advice, assistance and sand bags.
There is also help available for cleaning up after flooding and information about North Yorkshire County Council grants for householders affected by the floods and a flood survey.
