Playing Fields – Funding Success

The Playing Fields have had an excellent start to the year and are proud recipients of a grant for £5,000 from Barmby Moor Kids Club.

We will be adding £3,500 from Playing Fields funds and we are planning to replace most of the older wooden equipment (which is approaching 20 years old) and also some of the grass tiles under the basket swing.

Your support of our fund raising events is helping to make improvements for everyone to enjoy.

Grass cutting

We have a group of volunteers who cut the grass around the play equipment during the grass growing season, but we could do with a few more people to join the list as some of the regulars have left the village.

If you are able to help please contact us:

Tour de Yorkshire coming to Seaton Ross

Riders will be cycling through Seaton Ross on Thursday 3rd May 2018.

The Village Hall will be open to provide a vantage point to view the men’s and women’s races and for refreshments.  Please help us to welcome the riders, visitors and media by decorating the Village.

St Edmund's

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.

Road conditions on Ash Lane

The Seaton Ross Parish Council has contacted East Riding County Council about the dangerous conditions on Ask Lane.  It has requested:

  • The road is upgraded to a Primary Route
  • Installation of ‘Icy Road’ signage
  • Attendance of a representative at a combined meeting with Seaton Ross and Melbourne Parish Councils

Annual Litter Pick – 25th March 2018

The Annual Litter Pick will take place on the 25th March 2018 starting at 1.30pm.  Meet at the Village Hall.

There’s lots of litter being left on our grass verges which makes them very unsightly and often dangerous for animals, so please take your litter home.

Please encourage delivery drivers to take their little home too.  Our newest regular litter leaves Frosty Jack drinks cans everywhere. They belong in a blue bin!


Playing Fields AGM

It’s the Playing Fields AGM on *Wednesday 21 February *at *8pm* at *The
Melbourne Arms*. We are currently trying to attract just a few new faces
to join the Committee. This would not be a big commitment but just a few
new ideas and a little extra help would be very much appreciated so that we
can remain in a strong position.

We appreciate all the help that the Friends provide supporting the various
events and helping maintain the Playing Fields etc. We couldn’t manage
without you, but we do need a few more faces on the Committee.

If you can help or know of someone who might be able to help please let us

A big thank you for all your support at the PuB and Pizza night on Friday,
it was a busy night so good for fundraising!
