150 Club

The 150 CLUB
The 150 Club is an important fund raiser for the Village Hall. It means that anyone can support this important village facility even if they don’t immediately need it, plus having at least 48 chances of winning a prize over a year. Much better odds than the national lottery, and for the benefit of the whole village as anyone can hire the village hall.
There are 11 monthly draws of 4 PRIZES- 1 of £25, 1 of £20 and 2 of £10. There is a bonus draw in November with a 1st prize of £100, 2nd £50, and 2 at £20 plus other prizes, so that the prizes for the whole year equal half the funds collected by the 150 Club, which is the legal requirement.  The annual cost for one ticket is only £12, two tickets double your chances of winning.
Joining is simple. The 150 Club starts in April each year. Contact Anna Sheldon on 01759 318602, by email aa.sheldon@hotmail.co.uk, or use our contact form for new tickets. For existing tickets to be renewed the volunteer collector for your road will visit before the end of April.
The volunteer collector for your road will call to answer any questions and collect subs from the end of February.  If you wish to pay by electronic bank transfer instead of cash or cheque please request bank details and the reference needed from your collector or contact Anna.
The first draw will be on 27 April 2019.

Village defibrillator at the Village Hall

If you need to use the defibrillator for an emergency cardiac arrest then:

  • Go to the yellow box on the Village Hall wall.
  • Dial 999 and tell them the code on the box.
  • You will given a code by the emergency operator use it to open the box using the keypad.
  • Don’t forget to also ask for an ambulance.
  • Take the equipment to the emergency.
  • The defibrillator will know if the person is having a cardiac arrest, or not.
  • The equipment will talk to you to tell you what to do.

 

 

Playing Fields – new play equipment

The new play equipment has been installed and we hope it is being enjoyed by everyone.  All the equipment has now been replaced and we should pass many future annual inspections.  We would like to continue adding to new equipment to make it even more exciting for the younger members of our community.

Thanks to Barmby Moor Kids Club for the generous grant, to everyone involved in the project and to everyone who has supported our fundraising events over the years.  Also, thanks to everyone who has agreed to continue with the grass cutting rota – your help is appreciated.

If anyone would like to help and is able to do a one-off small tidying, grass cutting or maintenance job at the Playing Fields then please email Vanessa at vanessa.wodd@srpfa.org.

The People’s Pantry is open to everyone in need of help to support themselves and their families.  It is a not for profit enterprise ran by volunteers and is a member of FareShare (a charity aimed at relieving food poverty and reducing food waste in the UK).  Membership is being sponsored by the Pocklington District Lions Club.

We are offering a collection point at the back of Seaton Ross church.  Just drop off anything and we will make sure it gets to The People’s Pantry (but no perishables please).

The Foodbank is open at the Old School in Holme on Spalding-Moor on Fridays from 11.00 to 12.00.

If any resident of Seaton Ross would like to use the pantry, please phone the Reverend Stephen Cope on 01430 626728. Your application will be treated in the strictest of confidence and it may be possible to help with transport.

St Edmund’s Church – New heating

The PCC are very pleased to announce that, thanks to a generous gift from the late Ted Lazenby, St Edmund’s Church now proudly hosts a new oil-fired heating system.  This will help maintain the fabric of the building and provide much-needed warmth for all our services and events.

The church is open every day during daylight hours so please drop in and have a look at the new system.
