Neighbourhood Watch Scheme Revisited

The Parish Council is working with North Yorkshire Police to see whether we can rejuvenate the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in Claxton and Sand Hutton. The North Yorkshire Police website describes the scheme as:-
Neighbourhood Watch is a long established countywide voluntary organisation based on the simple philosophy of “getting together with your neighbours to reduce local crime and disorder to make your neighbourhood a safer and better place to live, work and play”.

It sounds to be a really good idea for a rural village community like ours.

But for the idea to work in our villages, we need some residents to want to join and support the scheme. Hopefully you will have worked out that there is a Saturday Social event this Saturday 20th April in the Village Hall at 10.30am! We are hoping that Gail Cook from Ryedale District Council, PCSO Nicki Pounder and also Ryedale South Beat Manager PC Paul Fenwick will come along with leaflets and information and will be able to chat to you about what is involved. It is a great chance to find out more, talk to the police and have a piece of cake at the same time!

Look out for more information on the NHW scheme on this website and notice boards in the coming weeks.

Saturday Social / Annual Parish Meeting

I think those who attended would agree that the 2nd Saturday Social in the village hall was a great way to spend a wet Saturday afternoon!

Really scrumptious cakes (all thoughts of diets forgotten) and the plant stall was heaving with a large variety of plants – and at 50p a pot (plus free carrier bag), a true bargain – not often you get those these days. There were some new books and DVDs which if not sold went onto the community library shelf (something else to check out if you haven’t already).

It was good to meet PC Andy Grant and talk to him about some of the issues affecting our villages -expect to see him and his PCSOs shortly! If you need to contact him, you can use the new 101 number. Following the tea and cakes, the annual parish meeting took place, giving everyone the chance to discuss matters affecting the villages. No doubt Laura will be posting more on this soon.
So overall, I think it safe to say we all had a great time.

If you couldn’t make this one, do give the next one a try – I think you’ll be very pleasantly suprised and we’d love to see you!

Saturday Social – The Results

It was very chilly this morning in Sand Hutton but the Village Hall was cosy and filled with the scents of fresh coffee and cake and the sound of lots of chatting.

Thank you to all the local groups and web team who joined in the Saturday Social and to the WI who helped serve all the refreshment. Also thank you to Ivan for bringing the hand bells – the sound is quite magical, even when we try and play them.

9 families have signed up to help with snow clearance which is brilliant news – and we might need them soon!

Now to the results – the local people who came along to socialise today were asked to vote with buttons to show which part they had enjoyed the most, here we go:-

  • Information from Parish Council and Local Groups – 9 buttons
  • Website Demonstration – 11 buttons
  • Book Exchange – 12 buttons
  • And the winner is Chatting, cake and coffee with 18 buttons!
  • Thank you to everyone who contributed today and we might try another event in the New Year?
