Do you know anyone in the village who is in their 80s and did National Service or who is over 65 and served in the regular Armed Forces?  

If so, there is now limited time for them to access the free advice and support available through the Ex Forces Support North Yorkshire project: https://communityfirstyorkshire.org.uk/projects/ex-forces-support-north-yorkshire-aged-veterans-fund/


The project offers free home well-being visits (which include fitting grab rails, key safes, mobility aids, draught proofing etc as well as giving advice on utility bills and help with heating systems). It also runs day trips and social activities, gives advice on finances, support for carers, and signposting to other support services.


Please share this information with any eligible local residents or even if someone in your family qualifies. If you require any further information please just get back Ms Urwin. We want to help as many older Veterans as possible to access the project before it finishes next year.


Kind regards, Kate

Community Messaging.

NYCC messaging is a free community messaging system for North Yorkshire that allows you to register to receive the latest crime notifications and community news happening in your local neighbourhood. This includes Crime, Rural Policing, Anti-social behaviour, Road Safety and Neighbourhood News. To get started visit www.nycm.co.uk and create an account, or download our app from your device’s App Store.



BE INFORMED- SELBY- is another New Text Message Service which aims to positively tackle anti-social behaviour in the Selby area. Kids are growing up fast and are soon teenagers, looking for their own space and independence. Keeping them on the right path and knowing where they are and what they are getting up to can be challenging at times.

As parents and carers, we want the best for them and do everything we can to make sure any slip in behaviour doesn’t end up having serious consequences on their future.

That’s why your local Selby Neighbourhood Policing Team has launched a new text message service called ‘Be Informed’. We want to work alongside local parents and carers in making sure their children don’t end up with a criminal record. The text service has been designed to keep parents in the loop of what’s going on in the local area. If our officers respond to a report of anti-social behaviour, we’ll send a text to those who are registered with the service. You’ll receive some information about the incident, so you can make contact with your child and be reassured that they are not involved and that everything is OK.


To consent to sign up for the service, please email your name, mobile phone number and which area(s) you’d like to receive updates about to:

BeInformedSelby@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk and we’ll sign you up.

Humber 2100+   are developing an ambitious new strategy for managing tidal flood risk on and around the Humber for the next 100 years.


They wish to hear your views to help shape the new strategy and to find out more about local attitudes towards flood risk and what matters to people around the Humber. To do this they have launched a survey to find out more about people that live and work around the Humber area and to gather information that will feed into their work on the strategy.



You can get involved in key decision points and full consultations to enable you to participate and help shape the future.
