Etton Road TROD Surface Information
The loose stones on the surface of the TROD are due to it not having been rolled yet.

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.

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

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.
