NEWSFLASH - 8th Dec '21
The recent Parish Council campaign to encourage more village residents to pre-register with KCOM to improve our chances of getting a share of the funding available to improve rural broadband has paid dividends.
The KCOM business case to bring full fibre broadband to the village has been approved.
Detailed planning is now underway which will inform the Parish of the expected build start date, likely early part of next calendar year.
This is great news and will hopefully improve the broadband capabilities of the whole village.
The waiting list for plots is currently empty.
If any resident is interested in putting their name down, please contact
Janet Wardale Parish Council Clerk
Telephone:- 01964 550 107
NEWSFLASH -12th Oct ‘21
This week KCOM gave the Parish Council a further update on the number of new village broadband registrations received recently to enable the village to qualify for a major investment in “Project Gigabit”, currently the most promising solution to get fast broadband throughout the village.
The good news is that the total now, minus duplicates is c.118 which is c.28% rate of pre-registrations to counted properties.
We are almost there but we need to reach 30% to get to the investment threshold. If you haven't already signed up and want fast broadband please sign up at the registration page below.
As a reminder, KCOM will be using a gigabit voucher scheme (GBVS) to support build costs and would require the applicable addresses to sign-up to the scheme – more details will follow should the commercial case be approved.
NOTICE OF UPCOMING ROAD WORKS ON CANADA DRIVE
Please see attached the Notice & Plan for an up-coming road closure for Canada Drive for gas mains works - commencing 0800 hrs Monday 4 October until 1700 Hrs Friday 8th October 2021.
The alternative route for traffic affected by this closure will be via the remainder of Canada Drive & Elm Drive, Cherry Burton.

NEWSFLASH -25th Sept ‘21
This week KCOM gave the Parish Council an update on the impact of new village broadband registrations received recently to enable the village to qualify for a major investment in “Project Gigabit”, currently the most promising solution to get fast broadband throughout the village.
The good news is that over the last month there have been 63 registrations of interest, plus what was there before. Minus duplicates, the total is now at c.86 giving a 21% rate of pre-registrations to counted properties.
This is really good news, but we need to reach 30% to get to the investment threshold. The aim being to get as many people pre-registered on the KCOM website as possible that are interested in either, as an existing customer upgrading to full fibre, or being a new KCOM customer and switching from another provider.
KCOM are already preparing a business case to bring full fibre to the village if we are successful.

Parish Council Update – Real Fibre Broadband for Cherry Burton (20th Aug '21)
The Parish Council understands that there are currently no plans for BT to install a fibre optics network to Cherry Burton in the foreseeable future.
Currently, the only way in which residents are likely to be able to achieve higher broadband speeds is through the KCOM fibre network “Project Gigabit” scheme.
KCOM are developing a £100M expansion plan for Hull, East Riding and some adjacent counties to upgrade houses to "Fibre to the Premises" (FTTP) by March 2022, a big improvement on current Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) Light Stream services. However, following recent communication with the Parish Council, it is understood that KCOM’s real fibre broadband rollout in Cherry Burton is now under review.
Although some areas of the village have Light Stream a more complete upgrade could come if more demand is stimulated. This applies equally to outlying areas e.g. High Gardham, Malton Rd., York Rd. etc.
A pre-registration voucher scheme for communities is aimed at attracting this infrastructure funding, but the whole village needs to achieve a 30% minimum interest threshold (subject to Commercial review). To ensure the village does not miss out on this opportunity, all interested users are asked to pre-register here http://www.kcomhome.com/preregister
Project Gigabit - KCOM Real Fibre Broadband coming to Cherry Burton.
The following is an extract of information provided by KCOM to Cherry Burton Parish Council recently to explain their plans;
The Government is aiming to achieve a target of 85% broadband coverage across the country by 2025 and they are funding a voucher scheme for rural upgrades i.e., up to £1,500 for private consumers, £3,000 for business users. Broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps will be possible hence the name “Project Gigabit”.
On the back of this target KCOM are developing a £100M expansion plan for Hull, East Riding and some adjacent counties such as N. Lincs. and N. Yorks which will upgrade houses to "Fibre to the Premises" (FTTP) by March 2022. This is a big improvement on current Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) Lightstream services.
The pre-registration voucher scheme for communities is aimed to achieve a threshold of 30% consumers in order to attract this infrastructure funding and interested users in outlying rural areas are asked to pre-register here http://www.kcomhome.com/preregister
Cherry Burton village is being upgraded later this year and if there are pockets of interest in outlying areas e.g. High Gardham, Malton Rd., York Rd. etc then they will also attract investment if they achieve the 30% interest threshold. Some areas of the village already have Lightstream FTTC and FTTP but a more complete upgrade is coming this Aug/Sept/Oct, so watch out for the media rollout from Aug.
KCOM have several schemes open to provide local funding for community investment such as Community Chest, Community grants and KCOM Kits for local teams. The schemes are already open for applicants and there is a voting arrangement whereby the community makes the choice between applications.

Malton Road (B1248) Village entrance
Further to the recent roadworks, East Riding of Yorkshire Council have confirmed that they will be seeding the verges and re-instating the stone village entrance sign as soon as weather conditions improve.
Controlling Large Vehicle Traffic through the village
Further to the Parish Council’s and residents’ concerns about large vehicles cutting through the village, East Riding of Yorkshire Council have agreed to erect a new sign on the B1248 discouraging HGVs from using the village as a shortcut to the A1079.
Dog poo on the MUGA
This afternoon a Councillor has been up to the MUGA as children reported dog poo on the MUGA which has now been cleared up.
We all have duty of care to keep our children safe and they should not be exposed to dog faeces especially in areas of play.
Two weeks ago there were comments from the junior football team that they had to clear the pitch of dog excrement before they could play football. Not only have owners ignored the signs requesting that dogs should NOT be on the playing field, but they have also clearly failed to clean up after their dogs when they have been there.
The Parish Council have rented a specific dog walking field, and dogs can be exercised within the nature walk areas so no dogs should be on the sportsfield let alone on the MUGA. (30th Dec 2020)
Bishop Burton Road access to the Village
The Parish Council have contacted the ERYC expressing their concerns about the danger of large vehicles using Bishop Burton Road as access into the village, due to the current road closure at the crossroads.
They responded that Bishop Burton Road is not the signed diversion route and they can’t prevent vehicles using it unofficially. Also, the bollards are in place to mark a large rut at the side of the road. There is a scheme in the pipeline to widen, kerb and resurface the section through the bends and they are just awaiting for the funding to become available
They did suggest that residents use the area with care and to use Etton Road as alternative access now that the work on the TROD has been completed.
Main Street Road Closure
ERYC Streetscene Services (Highways) have today given notice of Main Street road closure leading to the Malton Road crossroads commencing Wednesday 9 December 2020 to enable emergency drainage works to take place safely. It is anticipated that the works will be completed by 24 December 2020.
The alternative route for traffic affected by the closure will be via the remainder of Main Street,
Cherry Burton, Highgate, Dunken Hill, York Road (A1079), Beverley Road (A1079), Dog
Kennel Lane and Malton Road, Cherry Burton.
Access will be maintained for the Emergency Services & pedestrians only.
See ERYC Notice and Plan for more details.
Drainage Works to Malton Road/Main Street crossing
We have today been informed by ERYC working on the drainage at the Malton Road/Main Street crossing that they will be temporarily removing the stone built Cherry Burton village sign to allow them to continue the works along the side of the road. This work is to improve drainage from the junction to the Church.
The sign will be reinstated when works are complete.

Hornsea Four Newsletter
The May 2020 community newsletter has just been released by ORSTED and you can read it here.
On 19 May 2020, an Appeal by Mr Berrington & Miss Easter against a Judgment made by HHJ Richardson last year in the County Court at Hull was heard by Mr Justice Lavender.
The Appeal was dismissed.
HHJ Richardson last year determined that the electrical power supply boxes next to the Village Pond are situated on land owned by the Parish Council. That decision has been upheld following the dismissal of the Appeal.
The Parish Council is now working with its legal advisors to hopefully bring this matter to a conclusion once and for all.
Community Speed Watch
Community Speed Watch allows residents, particularly those in rural communities, to become police-trained volunteers monitoring vehicle speeds in their communities, with the aim of changing the behaviour of some road users who drive above the speed limit through small towns and villages.
Cherry Burton Parish Council is currently on the waiting list to undertake the scheme, once the current restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, the organisers have asked if suitable areas in the village can be identified in advance to expedite things once the lockdown is lifted.
A team of six volunteers will be needed and further information can be found on the website:-

Planning Sub Committee Meeting 24th March
The East Riding Planning Sub Committee met yesterday to discuss the planning application for 37 houses off Canada Drive.
Two verbal objections were lodged on behalf of Cherry Burton residents plus another speaker who supported the development.
The Planning Committee decided that they needed more information and planned to visit the site before a final decision is taken which will be at their March meeting.
Planning Committee Meeting for proposed new Canada Drive Development
The East Riding Council Planning Committee will consider the outline planning application for development off Canada Drive on 24 February 2020.
The Officers Report recommends approval despite the Parish Council's objections.
Full report and Agenda here.
To address recent uncertainty on Facebook about Cherry Burton’s element of Council Tax, the information below may help to clarify the situation;
The Parish Council set the village precept for 2020-2021 at £30,000.
This precept will mean that for a property in Band D the Cherry Burton Parish Council component of the total Council Tax bill will be £52.48 for the year from April 2020.
This is a reduction of £88.17 (£1.69 per week) or 62.7% compared to the current year (2019-20).
By way of further comparison:
For 2019-2020 the precept demand was £80,000 which equated to £140.65 for a Band D property, and;
For 2018 -2019 the precept demand was £20,548 which equated to £36.10 for a Band D property.

CHAIRMAN’S COMMUNITY AWARD - INDIVIDUAL
Winner: Tony Baker – Cherry Burton
Tony Baker has done an enormous amount of voluntary work for the benefit of Cherry Burton residents. He is a member of the Sports Field Management Committee and has accessed grants to plan and build the multi-purpose games area (MUGA).
Tony is on the tennis club committee and spends hours checking the courts, the multi-use games area and the outside gym and carries out any maintenance needed. He has also obtained funding to renovate the toilets which now include four new toilets and hand-washing facilities.
Tony is concerned about the environment and ensures the trees, hedges, paths, and parking areas are well maintained. He put up bird and owl boxes around the cricket pitch and the allotments and has planted meadow flowers.
He has been instrumental in fundraising for refurbishment of the tennis courts by arranging race nights, quiz nights, tombolas and stalls at the village show.
Tony said: “I never expected to win this at all – I’ve never won anything in my life before!
“I feel elated, proud, privileged and honoured to have won. I didn’t know that I had been nominated until I had a letter so say I was being considered.
“We are in the process of refurbishing the pavilion in Cherry Burton so maybe this award will go some way to help raise the profile and the money we need to complete the project.”

30th March 2018 – Owl boxes installed at the Sportsfield
In order to increase the likely hood of getting barn owls nesting at the Sportsfield we are advised that having two nest boxes in the near vicinity of each other improves the likely hood that one of them will get used.
HMP Humber have built a barn owl box for us and we are grateful to Bishop Burton College for erecting a platform on which the nest box will stand
We will keep you updated if we are successful in attracting a nesting pair of barn owls.
Cherry Burton Fairtrade Fortnight 2018
Great excitement this year as not only did we say ‘Come on In to Fairtrade’ but we also celebrated our 15th Birthday as a Fairtrade Village!
Two fabulous Fairtrade Birthday cakes were ceremonially cut and shared at the Fairtrade breakfast after a delicious feast produced by farmers from Fairtrade co-operatives and from Yorkshire. The place was abuzz with over 80 happy breakfasters keeping the volunteers very busy. Choices of Fairtrade coffee and Yorkshire bacon butties in home baked rolls went down very well. Milk donated by CherryView and coffee donated by Percol was much appreciated and enabled us to donate over £200 to the Fairtrade Foundation from this event alone.
Media interest started before Christmas with plans for a February feature on Fairtrade in Cherry Burton. This was in a large format local glossy magazine, ‘The Journal’ which has a wide circulation. BBC local radio also got in touch to find out what Cherry Burton was up to. They broadcast several live interviews with event organisers during the Fortnight. A preview of ‘Come On In to Fairtrade in Cherry Burton’ was published in Beverley Life, the monthly local paper. They attended a number of events and plan a full report in the April edition.

14th Feb to 21st Feb
The Cherry Burton Sportsfield Committee are delighted to be involved with National Bird Box week.
Bishop Burton College surveyed the site and, in conjunction with HMP Humber who supplied 24 small bird boxes plus a barn owl box, a team of students arrived on site and erected the nest boxes in the most appropriate positions.
Different designs of boxes have been erected to attract different species of small birds. The College will regularly re-visit the site to record the occupancy and species of the birds using the boxes. We will report their findings later in the year.
We are now benefiting from the bluebells and snowdrops planted in the woodland in 2017 .This year we have ordered additional English bluebells and cowslips, these will be planted in the spring to flower in 2019.

MPs and LORDS publish Livestock Worrying report
The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Animal Welfare has revealed an increase in dog attacks on livestock which is costing farmers millions of pounds and causing great distress.
In a ground breaking report released today, November 16 2017, the Group has released new data on dog attacks on livestock which shows the growing problem of incidences of livestock worrying by dogs.
The report has recommended that more is done to ensure dog owners recognise the risk their dog may pose to other animals so they can take measures to prevent incidents such as ensuring dogs cannot escape from the home, using the lead where needed, looking out for signs warning of grazing livestock and attending training classes.
Some of the other significant recommendations were:
• dog owners can mitigate risk through adequate soclialisation and training behaviours to ensure dog and animal safety
• farmers and local authorities can take measures to help prevent worrying and attacks
• farmers should report all attacks and worrying to to the police
• the police should improve the consistency of their response as well as recording and publishing numbers of incidents
• DEFRA should support specific updates to relevant legislation where this is found to be required such as a better definition of ‘livestock’
• DEFRA should regulate the industry of animal behaviour and training to ensure that pet owners can find reputable professionals to help them.
• Dog organisations should produce consistent information for dog owners which can be disseminated through veterinary practices and pet shops
New Library Service - Short Stay Route 16 (Mon)

Killingwoldgraves Roundabout Works
A highway improvement scheme is planned to commence on the A1079 Killingwoldgraves roundabout on 11th September 2017 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
The scheme involves widening the A1079 leg from Hull along with the A1174 and A1035 legs to provide longer two lane approaches and entries to the junction, also providing two lanes for circulation on the roundabout itself. The scheme aims to reduce the queues and congestion currently forming on the approaches to the roundabout, improving journey times and journey time reliability along the A1079 and other road corridors passing through the junction.
See Letter from ERYC dated 3rd Aug 2017 for further details and restrictions.

N.U.R.S.E. Join MP To Visit Latest Sites To Install Defibrillators
Posted By HU17 Admin on May 7, 2017
A local Charity and MP Graham Stuart have been out to see the latest defibrillators to be installed in the area thanks to their joint efforts.
N.U.R.S.E. who helps fund the project joined the MP as they visited locations in Beverley, Cherry Burton and Lund who have all recently installed defibrillators.
Vera Robinson from N.U.R.S.E. said; “Graham has been campaigning for local council parishes to have automated defibrillators installed due to emergency service cuts and delays. Due to this campaign the N.U.R.S.E. Charity received requests for help. In total, N.U.R .S. E. has now provided seven automated defibrillators to the more remote villages in our region. Cherry Burton Sports Field received their defibrillator in March." James Slingsby, Chairman of Cherry Burton Parish Council said they had no problems in getting support from local people.
Mr. Slingsby said; “When we put it to the teams who use the facility they were all very supportive and asked what they could do to help us get one. We have signs leading up to the ground showing people where they can locate the defibrillator. I would like to thank N.U.R.S.E for their help in providing the defibrillator. I hope it won’t be required, but we have the comfort of it being available should an emergency arise.”
Mr. Stuart who is Defibrillator Champion has made an ongoing commitment to raise awareness and help get as many defibrillators as possible installed in his constituency. Commenting on his visits he said; “I hope by doing things like this it will help alert people to the fact this life-saving equipment can be found at these locations. When someone has a heart attack, every minute that passes sees their survival chance fall by 7% to 10%, so having a defibrillator to hand can make all the difference whilst an ambulance is on its way.”
Second Defibrillator for Sportsfield
A second defibrillator for the Sportsfield has been kindly donated by the N.U.R.S.E. charity based in Beverley who raise funds by organising quiz nights, fun runs and sponsored walks.
In addition all the sports clubs and the Baden Powell groups have supported this financially which has included giving a donation to N.U.R.S.E. in appreciation.
The defibrillator is situated on the west wall of the pavilion.
