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.
The 2018 Winteringham Music & Arts Festival is just being outlined and organised at the moment so if you wish to become involved in contributing your ideas to the numerous events that will be undertaken on the weekend of the 28th. - 30th. September 2018 please come along to the next meeting that will be held at the Village Hall on Tuesday, 16th. January 2018.
Don't forget your LincsLotto tickets - the first draw was also held on the 30th. September 2017, further details and results of subsequent weekly draws may be found at the Village Hall web site. You may win the draw next Saturday for £25,000 so keep your fingers crossed - You do not need to be a resident of North Lincolnshire to participate in the draw so visitors and "ex-pats" may benefit from this local "good cause" lottery too.
A spreadsheet has been 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.
