Neighbourhood Watch Message – Scam TV Engineers

We’ve been made aware that fraudsters are posing as TV engineers and offering to help local residents retune their TV’s following the Bilsdale mast fire for a fee of £200. We’ve been advised that this is not legitimate activity and advise you not to accept unsolicited offers of help.

If anyone knocks on your door to offer this service, do not let them into your home and do not give them any money.

Arqiva, the company which owns the Bilsdale mast, has informed us they are developing an official support plan with local organisations and we will share details of this when they are finalised.

If anyone approaches you at your home and you are concerned, do not let them in and call the police on 101 to report this.

Please share this message with friends, family and networks who may not use social media or be part of online networks and help us to keep everyone safe from these scammers.

Notification of works – A64 Malton Bypass – sent on behalf of Highways England

Good afternoon,

A64 Malton Bypass Barrier Renewal

 Following our summer update about maintenance work on the A64, I am writing to inform you that A-one+ working on behalf of Highways England, will be carrying out essential maintenance on this route.

Starting on Monday 2nd August, we will be replacing sections of safety barriers, renewing some road signs, and cutting back vegetation on the A64 at Malton. Replacing the barrier will result in safer journeys for customers.

We are writing to customers in businesses in the area to advise them and a copy of this letter is attached for your information.

We’ll be doing several projects on the A64 this year, many of which are vital for road safety. We’ve planned our work to minimise disruption as much as possible, but with so much vital work to complete we can’t avoid working during the summer. We appreciate that there will be some short-term delays because of our roadworks, but this project will make journeys safer in the long term.

Further customer information including website updates, press releases and social media will be available to residents and businesses as work commences. If you have any questions, or if you would like to know about our work, please contact Highways England on 0300 123 5000 or email .

Yours faithfully

Hazel Birdsall

FLAXTON GARDENING CLUB – RESUMPTION OF ACTIVITIES!

We hope you have come through these dreadful times safely.  In view of the promising progress back towards normality, we have arranged an event to which you are warmly invited.  It is an afternoon visit to the gardens at Mill House, Warthill.  Pat and Ivan Adams have developed an impressive estate with a wide variety of plants in excellent condition, two ponds, a wooded walk and a walled garden.  There is plenty of space so social distancing will be easy.

This will be a trial event to assess if it is worthwhile to resume our Gardening Club activities so please do what you can to come along.  Bring friends, relatives, and anyone with just a passing interest in plants – they will not be disappointed.  You do not have to be a member of the Gardening Club!  Please note our hosts have requested that we do NOT bring any dogs.

 

Thanks, FGC Committee

Monday 16th August 2021, start 2pm

Visit to The Gardens at Mill House, Warthill, YO19 5XS (hosts Pat and Ivan Adams)

Cost: £5 per head (to include Pat’s impressive home baking!)

If you can come, please tell John Chambers by Thursday 5th August (01904 468893)

Directions: From the Towthorpe cross-roads on the A64, take Common Lane towards Warthill.  Continue past the turn to Stockton on the Forest then, just after the road bends to the right, take the second on the left, down a long drive.  If  you reach Breezy Knees on the other side of the road, you have gone too far!
