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 has been published. 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. A consultation has been undertaken recently with residents on improvements to the playing field, equipment and surface areas (the full details of the special meeting to consider the results are available on our 'Agendas & Meetings' page) and we aim to make improvements to these facilities by March 2018.

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 Council is committed to improve facilities for visitors and tourists to the Parish, including the numerous paths that are available to walk or simply stroll along for further details about these and to download the pathway maps see our 'The Council' page.

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. An initial press release has been circulated to all regional TV/Radio and newspapers about the forthcoming events and a further press notification has now been distributed - Winteringham Fair free fun for all the family.

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.
