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 806 voters listed in the Register of Electors for 2015.

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 also the worldwide renowned, Winteringham Fields, “a restaurant with rooms”. People come from far and wide to partake of its excellent cuisine.

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.

Parish Notices

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

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 Environment Agency have given notice about work that they have now commenced on the A1077 at South Ferriby to the Ancolme sluice gates:

In November 2016 the Environment Agency replaced the east drain tidal doors. The doors were tested during the January 2017 surge and successfully reduced the water level in East Drain.

We are now progressing with the remaining doors on the South Ferriby Sluice structure located on the River Ancholme, adjacent to the A1077, Sluice Road, South Ferriby. This work is required to maintain the current standard of flood protection to yours and other properties in the local area.
