Parish Survey 

Thank you to everybody who has completed and returned the parish survey questionnaire, a summary of the survey results were published in the November 2016 newsletter and the full anonymised details of the survey are shown here.

The survey proved useful in helping to guide the next stages in the development of the village hall. The Village Hall, Winteringham has now adopted a new constitution and has changed its charitable status to now become a Chritable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). A new web site for the Hall is currently being constructed and will be published shortly. The funding for this forum and the new on-line booking system has been obtained from a Village SOS project and (once completed) details about this development will be uploaded to their YouTube site.

About Winteringham 

Winteringham is a village of approximately 430 houses which stands on the south bank of the River Humber about 8 miles from Barton and the Humber Bridge. There are 813 voters listed in the Register of Electors for 2017.

The village dates back to Anglo Saxon and Norman times and Ermine Street forms a boundary for the village. It is known that the Roman Legions forded the River Humber at Winteringham. Later this was a busy market town and even had its own ship building industry although now there is no sign of this industry and the Haven is used by the Humber Yawl Club for its south bank base.

There is a Primary School in the village and the Village Hall is used throughout the week by the Nursery School (Under Fives). Several other clubs/associations use the hall as their base including the Parish Council for its regular meetings. 

The Village Hall is situated on South Side adjacent to a playing field. The field consists of a fenced-in Play Area, an All Weather Sports Facility where tennis, basket ball or five-a-side football can be played and a large grass area where sports are played.

Within the village there are a Church and Methodist Chapel, an excellent butcher’s shop and a Village Store/Post Office. There is a public house (The Bay Horse Inn) which provides entertainment and serves food and the worldwide renowned, Winteringham Fields, “a restaurant with rooms”,  people come from far and wide to partake of its excellent cuisine. There is also a campsite (Keviki) available that can accommodate tents, trailers, caravans and motor homes.

The village is surrounded by arable land although cattle, horses and sheep can be seen grazing locally. The views across the Humber are stunning and along the Humber banks there is a variety of wild life and birds some of which cannot be seen anywhere else in this country.

2017 marks the 700th. anniversary of the granting of a market charter to Winteringham by King Edward II and to promote this occasion Charter celebrations are being organised by the Winteringham Festival committee as part of the village's annual Music & Arts Festival that will be held at the end of September. 

Winteringham Projects:

In the latest newsletter it was reported that a spreadsheet will be produced detailing the projects that are being undertaken around the Parish by the Council and the various community groups and organisations within the village. This spreadsheet will be updated on a monthly basis in an effort to keep residents informed about current developments and encourage participation by residents in these projects. If you have a project that you would like including in the list then please Contact Us about this.

Parish Notices

This section is for information that the Council wishes to bring to the notice of residents:

Unfortunately, our Parish Clerk (Christine Hammond) has decided that she wishes to fully retire and resign from the post, so the Council is now looking for the services of a new Parish Clerk. A description of the basic duties and role of the Parish Clerk is available here, an advertisement for this position has now been posted on the various Winteringham web sites and other media. Applications for this post have now been closed and an interview panel will be meeting shortly to appoint the new Parish Clerk. The Parish Council would like to sincerely thank Christine for the splendid work that she has contributed to the Parish over a considerable number of years.  

The Police Neighbourhood Action Team has been receiving reports recently from our neighbouring villages of car keys being burgled from residents that are then used at a later date by thieves to take their cars. Please be vigilant against this (and any other crime) and keep your car keys in a secure place and if you spot anything suspicious at all either in the village or surrounding countryside (e.g. hare coursing) then report this to the police using their 101 number. In addition, unfortunately, there has been a burglary conducted in the village recently so please do be vigilant and make sure that home is safe, especially if you are planning to go away on holiday shortly - research has shown that burglaries do follow a pattern and if there has been one in the area then there are likely to be others. For advice on protecting your home then please do contact North Lincolnshire Safer Neighbourhoods who are your community safety partnership for the area. 

The Village Hall committee held an Extraordinary General Meeting on the 10th. January 2017 about the proposed change of the Village Hall to a "Charitable Incorporated Organisation" (CIO) and the adoption of its new constitution. It was agreed at this meeting that the proposed change should be applied to the Village Hall's charitable status, this change came into affect on the 1st. April 2017 as the application for the CIO status for the Village Hall has now been accepted by the Charity Commission. A new Village Hall web site will also be made available from this date that will include an on-line booking facility for the Hall. In addition a new mobile App is being prepared for mobile phones and tablets that will show "What's on" at the Hall.

The Village Hall committee has kindly agreed that their Car Park may be used by parents at Winteringham Primary School as a pick up/drop off point for children attending the school. Please do use the Village Hall Car Park as traffic congestion on School Road during term time is getting to be a real problem within the village.

North Lincolnshire Credit Union have set up a Contact Point available at Winterton Coop on Wednesdays between 12.00pm and 16.00pm 

It has been announced that the OVO Energy Cycling "Tour of Britain" will be passing through Winteringham on the 5th. September 2017 and various events are now being organised to celebrate this within the village. A Tour of Britain meeting will be held in the Bay Horse at 19.30pm on the 28th. June to discuss the village's preparation for the tour - everybody is welcome to attend.

At the June Council meeting it was agreed that the Council will adopt a procedure for the registration of Petitions to the Council that residents may participate in. Proposals about how these petitions will be handled by the Council in future will be submitted to the July meeting based on the experience of other Parish Councils; if you have any suggestions concerning the procedure that the Council should adopt then please Contact Us about this before the July meeting. 

The Environment Agency will be holding a public consultation on their Flood Defence plan for Winteringham at the Village Hall on 5th. July between 16:00 pm and 19:00 pm.
