Latest news and information

Hello everyone -  

The next Parish Council meeting will take place on Tuesday 7th May 2024 in the Village Hall, and this meeting will consist of two parts. 

The first part of the meeting will be the The Annual Parish Assembly. This will commence at 19.15.

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.

After the Parish Assembly, the Annual Parish Council Meeting will take place during which officers such as the chair and vice chair will be elected. The Annual accounts will also be presented for examination and sign off  


 


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

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.
