YORSwitch customer: I just wanted to thank you again for your speed and efficiency in enabling me to join the scheme so quickly and take advantage of the 'reduced' rate. I have been very anxious about refilling the oil tank but this scheme has eased some of that concern. Many thanks
Fiona - Electric Tricycle User, Age 51. 'I purchased an electric tricycle as I have Multiple Sclerosis and can no longer ride a bicycle due to poor balance and mobility issues. I have found that being out on my tricycle that my fitness has improved and it has had an impact on weight loss. With the pedal assist I am still able to pedal and use my legs which is important to keep my muscles active, reduce numbness and I am also able to cycle further including hills and this also helps with fatigue as I tire easily. I have enjoyed being able to access local rural areas which has had a positive impact on my mental health and wellbeing, especially during this difficult time due to Covid-19 and being isolated as a clinically vulnerable person. This has meant that I have been able to get out of the house and feel safe whilst exercising. There are a lot of support groups on social media where I have met other like minded cyclists who have offered invaluable support and advice and I have met up with another lady tricycle rider as a riding companion.'
Mrs Surfleet a registered customer of the car scheme thanked HWRA for an excellent service and also to personally thank the driver, Terry for his help and assitance in providing transport to her medical appointment.
Wheels to Work North Lincolnshire Scheme - John from Grimsby ‘I joined the scheme in 2021 after hearing about it from a family member. I was in need of transport to get to and from work as I had my motorbike stolen and was not able to replace it. As a short-term arrangement I was relying on a family member to take and pick me up from work. For me the key benefit of the wheels to work scheme was that it provided me with a scooter that enabled me to get to and from work, it also gave me back independence and freedom. I would definitely recommend the scheme and I have done so to friends who are need of transport to get to work. Don’t’ underestimate the scooters as they are extremely reliable . My experience of the scheme was great, and I was glad that I was successful in receiving a scooter via the scheme’.

SHAPE Group (South Holderness Association of Parish Enterprise)

2nd July 2020

The SHAPE Group formally came into existence in 2012, but had been functioning in its present form since 2008, when it was known as the Parish Group of the Withernsea and South Holderness Regeneration Partnership. The Parishes supported include: Easington, Halsham, Hollym, Holmpton, Keyingham, Ottringham, Patrington, Rimswell, Roos, Skefflling, Sunk Island, Welwick & Weeton and Withernsea.

Most Parishes in South East Holderness had completed a Parish Plan and the Group was formed to look at issues of common interest, that could be better solved by the Parishes working together and speaking with one voice.

The Group has tackled a number of issues in that time. The first to be looked at was the issue of speeding traffic on the road from Easington to Patrington, although it was an issue all through the parishes. Safer Roads Humber came out and talked to the Group and some parishes were the first groups to use Police assistance with speed boards to try and tackle the problem.

After the 2010 winter the Group was concerned about that gritting was not available from ERYC, on the more minor roads in the area and also on parish pavements. They came up with a solution, helped by having a member of the Group who was a contracter to ERYC for the Gritting. By buying salt and grit in bulk and placing it in the parishes who wanted help, the contracter used his machinery to spread the salt/grit as requested. The Parishes paid the contracter for the work and also for their portion of the salt & grit. Although this worked well initially, with warmer and milder winters, not much gritting has been needed, but the idea worked very well.

Flooding has always been an issue due to the geography of the area and the Group and various members spent a lot of time and effort to put the case of better drainage in the area, which has been achieved in some areas.

Health has been an issue, most recently with the changes to the hospital at Withernsea. The East Yorkshire CCG came to a meeting to hear the views of the Group to issues which had been identified with the 8 to 8 service at the hospital and a variety of other concerns related to health matters. This was a very useful exercise, as it allowed all points of view to be heard.

The Group continues to meet and our next meeting is on 24th June 2021 and will be held virtually on Zoom starting at 7pm. Any Parish Councillor from the 13 can attend and we always welcome newcomers. To receive an invite to join the Zoom meeting, please email Peter Hirschfeld at

North Lincolnshire Council would like your views on being a carer.

A carer is someone who gives support to another person; a family member, friend or neighbour, who would otherwise not manage without their support. You are not paid to give this support. Many people don't see themselves as carers, even though they provide vital support for the people they are caring for. North Lincolnshire Council would like to understand your experiences and what your future support needs might be if you are or have been a carer. This will help inform the future commissioning of services for carers. The survey will ask you about any challenges faced as well as what support is important to carers. The survey closes 1st September 2022

Tree Planting and Food Production: A joined-up approach

The England Woodland Creation Offer (EWCO) is one of a number of ongoing payments that can support farmers to manage their land in an environmentally sustainable way while continuing to produce food. We're offering the opportunity to create woodland of various types and sizes in a flexible way that works for both land managers and farmers. We are inviting eligible farmers and land managers to apply for a share of £25 million available this financial year to support woodland creation in England. Land areas as small as 1 hectare and up can enter a EWCO agreement to access this funding. There is no reason to delay planting trees on your land. The England Woodland Creation Offer will, from 2025, become part of Local Nature Recovery – one of our new environmental land management schemes.
