Latest news and information

Hello everyone - a slight change to the meeting schedule for March. The next council meeting will be held on 12th March 2024 2024 at 19.15 in the Village Hall 

Several members of the public have attended our meetings recently and we welcome people coming along to express their concerns

There is another opportunity coming up where members of the public can address the council. Did you know that every year a Parish Assembly takes place? 

All Parish Councils are required by law to hold an Annual Parish Meeting (Assembly). The meeting acts as a democratic point of communication enabling the Parish Council to explain what it has been doing during the last financial year. The assembly also provides an opportunity for electors to have their say on anything they consider is important to the people of the Parish.

All registered Electors are entitled to attend and participate in the meeting, and residents may ask questions of the Council.

Winteringham Parish Assembly will take place on 7th May 2024. Please check this web site and noticeboards for further information on timings and agenda 

 


Vacancies

Your council needs you - fresh ideas and new faces. Being a councillor doesn't mean that you are loaded with lots of bureaucratic responsibilities, but on the other hand it is a commitment and does need to be taken on board with an open mind and with care and thought. More often than not, you are merely a voice for a local concerned resident and often, a simple idea you have may open up a new proposal for something new for the village

We do have two vacancies. We are a friendly bunch of people and we always welcome a new face to the council

To apply please send a short letter confirming your interest and skills to the Clerk to the Parish Council: parishclerk@winteringham-pc.gov.uk

Alternatively down load the forms below and bring them along to the next council meeting

A scheme designed to improve housing standards and protect Scunthorpe communities from rogue landlords and anti-social tenants has been proposed.

 

The Selective Licensing scheme – being consulted on now – would mean landlords in certain parts of Scunthorpe would have to be licensed, requiring them to maintain high standards to keep their tenants safe, warm and secure.

It would also require them to ensure their tenants maintain the same high standards.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader, North Lincolnshire Council, said: “It is not fair that homeowners who have lived in communities for generations that keep their homes and gardens clean and tidy must suffer because of a small number of landlords and tenants.

“This scheme will enable us to put in place extra enforcement officers who will go around and hold landlords – and their tenants – who clearly do not care, to account.”

The scheme is designed to improve housing conditions, reduce anti-social behaviour and ultimately, improve the health and wellbeing of the communities. The council would also be further empowered to target the criminal landlords.

Residents from across North Lincolnshire can now take part in the consultation – further details are available here

Winteringham Village

Winteringham stands on the south bank of the River Humber about 8 miles from Barton and the Humber Bridge. .

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 founded a settlement probably called Ad Abum in this area, due to Ermine Street, the main Roman road between Londinium (London) and Lincoln terminating here, on the south bank of the Humber. The Legions forded the River Humber at Winteringham to Petuaria (Brough) on the North Bank. 

It is thought that the name Winteringham is derived from one of the Kings of Lindsey - Winta. Winteringham = The Homestead of Winta's people and Winterton = the farm/village of Winta's people  

In later years, Winteringham 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.

Within the village there are a Church and Methodist Chapel, an excellent butcher’s shop and a thriving village store and Post Office. There is a public house (The Bay Horse Inn) which provides entertainment and serves food and, also situated within the village is 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.
