Parish Transport Champion Volunteer

Parish Transport Champion
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has contacted all town and parish councils to seek their assistance in undertaking a county-wide assessment of transport needs, in order to work with parishes to develop the most appropriate ways of meeting these needs into the future. The council has asked parishes to nominate a Transport Champion. The Champion doesn’t have to be a parish councillor, but could be anyone with an interest in and enthusiasm for the role. 
The key things that the council is asking a Champion to help us with are set out below. Ongoing support will be directly available to champions from council staff.
  -Act as the parish’s point of contact with East Riding of Yorkshire Council on local transport issues.
  -Work with the council and other community members (perhaps through bringing together a local Transport Issues Group) to undertake local transport needs assessment using the Parish Transport Toolkit.
    -To organise, with other community members, local consultation on transport issues. This could be through household transport surveys, public meetings, or through discussions with local residents.
   -Report back on progress to your parish or town council, and with other community members, help to publicise and promote the local transport services that are available in your parish.
If anyone would like to volunteer for this role please contact Gabrielle (

Wolds Weighton Update for April 2017
1. Priority

Issue: Market Weighton Town Centre area (Evenings):
Throughout April, we are to continue our High Visibility patrols of the Market Weighton Town Centre area to deter potential anti-social behaviour (ASB). These patrols include regular checks on the High Street and peripheral areas of Londesborough Road Car Park, Scotts Croft Memorial Park, the town council building area and the area surrounding the Giant Bradley statue (periodic reports of youths causing annoyance). Criminal offenders will be challenged robustly, arrested or reported for summons. Penalty Notices for Disorder or warning letters may be used in appropriate cases however, those who offend should expect to be arrested and dealt with if their anti social behaviour amounts to criminal offending.  The exercise of discretion should not be expected.

2. Priority

Issue: Youths Causing Annoyance (Evenings):
Officers will continue patrols in the areas of Aspen Close, the park, the monkey run & football field due to regular reports of low level anti-social behaviour. Anyone caught engaging in such activities will be dealt with jointly with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Distraction Burglars

Not sure? – Don’t open the door!
A distraction Burglar is someone who gains access to your property by distracting or tricking their way in to steal cash or valuables.  This can include people, who are trying to sell items on your doorstep, to those who claim to be representing a company or charity to gain entry into homes before stealing items whist the occupants are distracted.
When someone calls at your door follow these simple steps to help protect yourself and your home.
  • Keep your front and back doors locked at all times, even when at home.

  • Before you answer the door, stop and think if you are expecting anyone and ensure that no rear/side doors and windows have been left insecure. It may be that the caller is trying to distract you while someone else sneaks in.

  • If you decide to open the door, put the door chain or bar on first and keep it on while you are talking to the person on the doorstep. Some bogus callers call on older and vulnerable people saying they need help urgently. They may ask you to help them outside the house or ask to come in to make a phone call or have a glass of water. Only go to help them if you have someone else with you. Don't worry if you choose not to help it is not rude or unfriendly.

  • If someone who looks official calls at your door, always do the following. Ask for and carefully check their identity card, even if they have a prearranged appointment (all genuine callers will carry one). Do they look like the person on the card? Is the name the same one as that on your letter? Close the door while you do this. If you are not expecting them and they have not shown you an identity card, do not let them in until you have checked that the caller is genuine. If you are going to ring the company the caller claims to be from, don’t rely on a number provided by them, you could be ringing an accomplice sat in the van outside - (you can normally find a contact number on your utility bill or from the telephone directory).

  • If you think the caller is genuine, but you would rather have a friend or relative with you, ask the caller to rearrange to a time when you are not on your own.  Don’t agree to any work or sign anything on the spot. Do not be pressured into having any work carried out.   Never pay cash up front and never go to the bank or cash point with a trader.

Doorstep crime isn't common, but it can have a long-lasting impact on victims' lives. Remember if you're not sure of a caller, don't open the door – but do give us a ring. You can call us on 101. But please always call 999 in an emergency or if you suspect a crime is in progress.
