Village Hall Informatiion and Consultation
The volunteer Village Hall Committee has made many improvements to the building over the last two years refurbishing male and female toilets, damp-proofing under the stairs, fitting a new boiler, making a new ramp at the entrance, upgrading the emergency lighting, laying flooring in the foyer and disabled toilet. Fundraising is ongoing to pay for these improvements. The Parish Council has supported the VH Committee in applying for grants for some of this refurbishment and by adopting the play area to take this responsibility away from the Committee
The major job that still needs to be done is to refurbish the roof which is over 50 years old. After much discussion and looking at grants it has been decided that the only achievable method is to overclad the roof, to remove and replace the roof is out of reach financially. Overcladding means that the existing roof stays in place but is covered by a new roof, this is an acceptable way of refurbishing an old roof
The Parish Council appreciates that the VH is the hub of the village and that most people in the village use it as some time or another, the VH is therefore very important to the village and so the Parish Council has resolved to support the roof project financially
The plan is that the VH Committee will provide 20% of the cost and the Parish Council 80%, fundraising will continue and the Scouts will support this fundraising as their contribution
The Parish Council is able to take out a low interest loan via the Public Works Loan Board and will borrow £32,000 over 10 years to fund its contribution. It is hoped that an application to the Spaldington Wind Farm Fund will cover the repayments of this loan. If the application to this fund is unsuccessful then the repayments would be made from the precept and this will mean increasing the precept by £3,200 per year starting April 2018. The effect of this to middle band rate payers (ie Band D) is that they will pay an extra £2.96 per year or 5.7p per week. The Parish Council sees this as a sensible way to spend public money and welcomes comments from residents, please contact Steve the Clerk at email@example.com or any Parish Councillor (see elsewhere in the Grapevine for contact details)

Budget Survey for East Riding Council
From East Riding Council :-
"Town and Parish councils are being urged to complete an online survey which will go towards shaping the spending priorities of East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
As part of the budget process, the council must consider how it can reduce costs or deliver services in a different way and feedback from this survey will help the council prioritise funding for services.
The Government’s funding reductions in the public sector, including local authorities are set to continue until at least 2019/20.
Despite this, the council has made savings of £118million since 2010/11 although a further £76million of savings is required over the next four years.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby, OBE, leader of the council, said: “The council continues to receive significantly less Government funding per head of population than urban authorities, our neighbours in the Humber region and the average for similar authorities.
“We are facing some tough economic times ahead and the online survey is an important way for the public to let us know what they think and how they feel the council should prioritise its spending.
“The survey should take around 10 minutes of people’s time so I would urge people to take this opportunity to complete the survey and let us know their views.”
The survey can be found at www.eastriding.gov.uk/budgetsurvey and the closing date for all responses is Sunday, 6 December 2015.
NB: The budget event which is being held at East Riding Leisure Beverley on Thursday, 26 November is now fully booked."

Defibrillators x 2 for HOSM grant obtained !
A grant worth £1995 has just been awarded to Holme on Spalding Moor to towards the purchase of two defibrillators for the village
The Parish Council consulted our first responders and the ambulance service before making the grant application, they both supported the idea and we have just heard of the success of the application
The fact that HOSM is a large village in terms of size and population was a factor in the success and thanks go to the Surgery and Margaret’s DIY for offering to site the defibs on exterior walls. The defibs will be available 24/7 and the locked cabinet has a key code to enter which the ambulance service will give you in event of an emergency
The defibs require no training as they talk to you to explain how to use them, however as time is vital familiarisation training will be arranged once installed
More later once the paperwork has been received and we have them sited

DOG Warden Press Release
VOLUNTEERS WANTED TO CREATE CLEANER ENVIRONMENT
East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s dog warden team are looking for volunteers to help them create a cleaner environment.
Volunteers would be given training by the dog wardens on the dog fouling law and would help by challenging those dog walkers who fail to clean up after their pets.
They would also be able to hand out information about responsible dog ownership as well as understanding what evidence is required in order for a £75 fixed penalty notice to be issued.
Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for community involvement and local partnerships at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Dog fouling is a major issue and while most dog walkers are responsible and do clean up the mess left by their pets, there are some that don’t.
“The East Riding is a vast area and our dog wardens can’t be everywhere which is why we are asking for the help of the public.
“Those who do come forward will be given all the information and confidence they need to challenge those who are seen to be not cleaning up the mess left by their dogs while being able to give out information about responsible dog ownership.
“We would really like fellow dog walkers to come forward and help us create a cleaner environment but will consider volunteers from any walks of life.”
For more details ring East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s dog warden team on (01482) 396301 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
