The Preston Parish Council
Covid 19 is now forcing a Government lock down and they are asking all workers to work from Home if they can. Michael our handyman and I will be discussing this situation but current feeling is that Mike should not be out in the Community . Therfore we ask everyone to understand that the green areas . burial ground, church yard etc will not be cut until we are advised by the Government that it is safe and permissible to do so. The office will also be closed and should you need to contact the Council then please ring 01482 899411 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for staying at home and helping with this emergency.Please stay safe everyone.
The Parish Council has no allotment plots available in either our Weghill site or the Sandhill Site, we now have a waiting list which is available to both residents and Non-residents of Preston, If you are interested in joining the waiting list contact the office 01482 899411 or email email@example.com and your details will be added.
Neighbour Hood Watch in the Village needs a new leader to step into the role. Support from the ERYC and police is available , anyone interested in taking on this worthwhile role may contact the Clerk here at the Parish Council office for further information.
NHS SERVICES ARE CHANGING AT WITHERNSEA AND OTHER LOCAL HOSPITALS IN APRIL 2018 -PLEASE SEE OUR NEWSLETTER SECTION FOR INFORMATION ON HOW THIS WILL EFFECT YOU.
EAST RIDING LIBRARIES. Change in timetable . Residents please be aware that the Library service has changed its time and date in the Village. The mobile library will now visit on a Tuesday every 4 weeks at 9.05am until 9.35am on Weghill Road near Peace Walk .
The next Parish Council meeting is due to take place on the 11th May 2020 however due to the Governments rules around Covid 19 we are unable to confirm as of yet whether this meeting can and will take place. The safety of our Councillors and residents is the most important thing for all of us and should the advice to not hold group gatherings and social distancing still be in place we will of course have no choice but to canacel this meeting

Current Parish Office Hours: Monday, Tuesday , Wednesday & Friday 10.00am - 13.30hrs. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic the office will be closed to the public and the clerk will be looking at working as much from home as is possible. This also means for the safety of our handyman his work will be limited until the Government issues advice otherwise that he and I am able to return safetly to work. The emails and phone will be checked and if you need any support then ring either ERYC 01482 393939 OR Parish Council 01482 899411 please be advised that the Parish Council will assist if it can but only has 2 part time staff and 10 Councillors currently several of which fall into the over 70 or underlying health conditions including one Pregnant Councillor so their support will not be available as they are some of the vunerable who may need support themselves. Please stay safe everyone , look after your loved one and those local if you can.
