Halloween competition

Covid19 means we can't trick or treat this year. Instead why don't you and your child decorate a real pumpkin or draw or paint one and display it in your front window or on your drive from 26 - 31 October. The Parish Council is offering children's prizes for the best pumpkin ideas. There will be 2 prizes of book tokens for each age group (1) Pre-school and KS1 (2) KS2 (3) Secondary.

Please email a photograph of your entry to the clear at seatonrosspc@gmail.com before 26 October with your name, age, address and photo of your pumpkin. Entries will be judged by the Parish Council at its meeting on 3 November 2020.

Minutes of the meeting of the Parish Council held remotely on 22 September 2020.

The minutes of the meeting can be found by clicking on the Minutes tab. Minutes are available around 7 days after the date of the meeting.

Closure of Main Street Melbourne between Campey Lane and the Sports Field

Main Street is currently closed because of a collapsed sewer. Yorkshire Water has said the work will take about about a month. It is likely therefore that the road will not be reopened until the middle of November 2020.

Closure of Hagg Bridge - update 22 October2020

The work to Hagg Bridge started at the end of April 2020. Information about the work/diversions/buses can be found below.

The works were supposed to last around 6 months. However, problems have now arisen which means the deadline will not be met and at present ERYC cannot say how much longer the bridge will be closed. What ERYC has said is that it is unlikely there will be a quick fix to the problem. Updates will be published when anything is known.

During the closure the bridge will be closed to vehicles . The map below provides details of diversion routes. Please note Church Lane will also be closed to vehicles during the duration of the works to the Bridge.
