Armistice Sunday - 8th November 2020

Armistice Sunday 8th November.

This year the annual commemoration will take place at the War memorial in Low Hutton. This is because singing in church is still not permitted because of the Covid 19 restrictions. The commemoration will be short one and will culminate with the laying of a wreath in memory of those in Huttons Ambo who died in both World Wars. Please assemble by 1050hours.

Should the weather on the 8th be very inclement it may be necessary to hold this short service at the Church. If this looks likely, please check with the Churchwardens - Rosa Naylor (01653 695008) and Steven Dunning (07975 852589). However, it will need to be raining or snowing very hard for us to abandon the War memorial!

Parish Council Parish Council Minutes

HUTTONS AMBO PARISH COUNCIL MINUTES Tuesday, September 15th 2020 7.30pm Agenda 1 Welcome Councillors present – Andy Dorman, Simon Lealman, Emma Samuel, Philip Barraclough Parish Clerk - Anne Lealman No apologies for absence received No members of the public present at this meeting Discussions were had regarding the best way to decide on a Chairperson for the meeting and future meetings. Suggestions proposed included a different chair at each meeting, a nominated chairperson on a rotating basis of a couple of meetings, or a rotation of the chairperson on a 12-month basis. A decision was reached that the chairperson should be on a rotation every 12 months, running April to March each year. Andy Dorman was proposed to be the chairperson by Simon Lealman and was seconded by Philip Barraclough 2 Approval of Minutes of meeting on 7th July 2020 - Approved & signed by Andy Dorman 3 Matters arising: a) Pot Holes – these are being repaired once reported via the NYCC Parish Portal. It was noted that there are potholes near Dalton House in the Low Village and on the corner of Home Farm gate in the High Village. Simon Lealman to check the dimensions and report via the portal if necessary. Can any member of the village who wishes to report a pothole please contact any member of the Parish Council to allow reporting via the NYCC Parish Portal. b) Tree inspections – completed c) Low Lane End/A64 - see new matters and new speed limits on A64 d) Parish Portal – Simon Lealman is in charge of the Parish Portal e) Village noticeboard - update (re map work on Powerpoint) – Jem Charles has kindly agreed to make a wooden frame to go around the foam noticeboards. Philip Barra-clough to take the lead on this matter as he has the history content complete but will need graphics and maps. Philip to speak to Rona re her friends’ book. Sites for mounting agreed as: a. the wall on Bob Mansell’s barn in the Low Village and, if approved b. on the grass near the seat outside the church in the High Village. Andy Dorman to contact Steve Dunning to gain permission for the board to be angle mounted at this location. 4 New Matters: a) New speed limits on A64 – the new speed limits have made no difference to the speed of the vehicles approaching the Low Lane. It appears to have made things worse as drivers seem shocked at the new speed limit. The Parish Clerk will write to Highways about the speed limit signs on the Low Lane and dangers around vehicles not taking heed of the new speed limits on the A64. b) Adoption of phone box by parish council and removal of telephone – Andy Dorman to lead on this matter. Plan is to relocate the Defibrillator from the Village hall to the tele-phone box to maximise the availability to villagers. Simon offered assistance. 5 Planning: a) Planning application, no: 20/00628/HOUSE - The Rise – approval of amended plans b) Planning application, no: 20/00547/FUL - DH Group - approval 6 Finance: Budget progress to 31st August 2020 – Discussion regarding cheque signatories on the account and the issue of time taken to bank cheques in Malton. It was unanimously agreed to investigate Internet banking, including opening a new account at the Yorkshire Bank to allow for multiple/dual signatory aspect. Parish Clerk to take this forward. 7 Any Other Business Fibre Broadband available to all by March 2021 – Everyone is encouraged to log their interest for fibre broadband at https://www.openreach.com/fibre-broadband/ A64 overnight road closures - Thank you to David Banks for sorting out issues faced by residents due to A64 improvement works and associated closures. Parish Councillor vacancy – all agreed to advertising the current vacancy on the village notice boards and bus shelters. Parish Council Funding Ideas - suggestions were: Children‘s play ground – Andy to discuss with Clare Jenyns to see if there would be a possibility to buy or hire land to the right of the hall (nearest the hall small room). A community event – e.g. a BBQ after village show – All agreed to look at this option again once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted. 8 Date of next Meeting Tuesday 10th November 2020 at 7:30pm Anne Lealman, Clerk to the Parish Council huttonsamboparishclerk@gmail.com ; 2020 www.huttonsambo.com

Church Services

Church Services

There is now good news in that we are allowed to hold ‘specially distanced’ services in the Church.

However, services of Holy Communion are not yet authorised by the Diocese and, when they are, probably only the celebrant will be permitted to partake of the host. It would seem that Communion for a whole congregation is a long way from being officially sanctioned and presumably not until the full implications of Covid-19 are known.

Canon Bob Rogers has let it be known that at present he only wishes to take Eucharist services.

It is therefore planned to hold a lay led service of Matins on Sunday 19th July at 10am, we hope that as many as possible will come to support ‘our new start’.


We shall have to take sensible precautions on 19th July as follows:


  • No singing (although we hope Michael Sessions will play the tunes of those hymn we might have sung)
  • Everybody will have to observe social distancing in Church;
  • Use hand sanitiser on arrival
  • Use of prayer/hymn books on a strictly controlled basis (to be explained on the day)
  • Collection centrally by the door
  • Doors left open during the service



Finally we shall be dependent upon Alison Hutchinson and our own three lay service takers to take our services. We would ask Simon and Juliet to confirm their agreement to continuing.


Plans are being made for the future pattern of services in the Benefice. It is hoped that we shall have two services a month in our Church – in all probability the first and third Sundays – usually lay led, although it is to be hoped that there will be a Communion service in one of the Benefice churches each Sunday. All to be confirmed in due course.

Huttons Ambo Flower & Produce Show/Yorkshire Day Celebration - 1st August 2020

Huttons Ambo Flower & Produce Show/Yorkshire Day Celebration 1st August 2020

This year the Annual Flower & Product Show will not be able to take place in the Village Hall as usual.

Instead the plan is to hold a Yorkshire Day picnic on the Village Green.

However it is hoped that from 1pm on the day, would-be entrants would be willing to place the entries that they *would have made* on a table near their gate so that villagers can walk around Low & High Hutton and admire them before heading to the Green to picnic.

A copy of the schedule is attached and we look forward to seeing as many of you as can make it.

Huttons Ambo Flower & Produce Show Schedule.

Please remember to social distance.

Parish Council Minutes from the July 7th general meeting

Huttons Ambo Aarish Council minutes 
From Meeting On July 7th 2020

  1. Welcome, Councillors present & Apologies

 David Banks, Philip Barraclough, Andy Dorman, Simon Lealman, Emma Samual and Sarah Banks (Clerk). There were also four members of the public.

2. Approval of Minutes
Minutes of the January meeting were approved and signed as being a true record.

3. Matters Arising

  1. Pot holes: There are still some potholes that need attention despite recent work. Councillors will email Simon to send via the Parish Portal.
  2. Tree Inspections: The three trees on the village green have been inspected by Waites Tree Surgeons, with no serious problems evident. Remedial work has been suggested to lift the crowns and remove dead wood. The cost is £270 for the report. The necessary work will cost £425 which councillors approved. This work will in fact be met by funds from reserves.
  3. Low Lane End: Following the postponed meeting on March 24th, due to Covid-19, Councillors will now wait and see what changes will be made in the light of the A64 works programme to decide if and when to hold a new meeting. An order has been made for the section of the A65 from Crambeck to Malton to become a 50mph limit. 

4. New Matters

  1. Covid-19: During the lockdown period the parish council funded the village newsletter, co-ordinated by Denise Doggett. with a grant for £60. David thanked Denise and volunteers for all their hard work during this crisis. He also thanked the village shop for the service provided so people didn’t have to travel far for grocery supplies.
  2. Parish Grants: The parish council has been able to fund a number of village grants due to the PC carrying a small surplus. This financial year it has funded the village newsletter during Covid-19 totalling £60. It also gave a grant to the village youth club to fund future activities which will roll on into next year due to lockdown. This grant was for £444.
  3. Footpaths: Rona Charles has continued with footpath monitoring that she began last year with a group of volunteers. David has been in touch with the estate regarding the list of issues identified by the group. He has since received a reply from the estate indicating that all the issues identified have already been remedied. Rona mentioned a book that was due to be published by Margaret Atherden that includes a woodland walk through Huttons Ambo.
  4. Grass verge cutting: Philip Barraclough noted that verges had been cut in parts of the village where the wild flowers had not yet finished flowering. It was suggested that a sign is placed where it is preferred that verge cutting takes place after flowering.
  5. Parish Chair and Clerk: David noted that both himself, as chair, and Sarah Banks, as clerk would be stepping down from these roles prior to the next meeting. Councillors discussed various possibilities for the chair role including a rotating chair role. The clerk role appears harder to fill. This has been advertised on the village noticeboard, Facebook site and village website. It will also be included in the village newsletter.

5.  Planning: 

a) Application No: 20/00327/HOUSE/The Reddings - For mention
b) Application No: 20/00336/ 3 Low Hutton Park - For mention
c) Application No: 20/00350/MFUL/DH Group, Malton

6. Finance: Budget Progress to June 30th 2020. The current balance is £7605. 
The Parish Precept for 2020 remains at £2800. Parish council grants have been given to the village newsletter (£60) and the youth club (444).

7. AOB: 

  1. Village Broadband: Simon mentioned that in conversation with a BT engineer, the engineer had said that the infrastructure was now in place for everyone in the village to receive fibre broadband.
  2. Cattle escapes: David mentioned that cattle had recently escaped from the field at the top of St Andrew’s track. The estate has already fitted a pedestrian gate which should prevent further issues. If gates are left open, please could villagers close them. David will speak to Richard Wainwright to see about publicising his mobile number should such incidents happen again. 
  3. Village Information Board: The preferred option is to work with RayMac in Malton to create a sign similar to that in Lockton village. This is a reasonable cost for a foam board. The council would then need to look at how to mount it. This may be something that someone in the village is able to do, otherwise there are options online to purchase a frame or lecture-style stand.

8. Date of next meeting
September 15th 2020 at 7.30pm at the village hall.

Parish Council Minutes from the AGM July 7th 2020

Huttons Ambo Parish Council Minutes for the AGM

July 7th 2020



Welcome: David Banks (Chair) welcomed councillors Philip Barraclough, Andy Dorman, Simon Lealman, Emma Samuel and Sarah Banks (Clerk) and four members of the public. 


Chairman’s Report:

Chairman’s report

COVID19 and meetings
We would usually have met in March and May but for Covid19. While other councils have been permitted to hold online meetings, PCs were not and could not meet in person by law, until now.

Broadband
After years of campaigning fibre broadband is now available in the village. Around half the village should be able to receive it. I’ve been in extended contact with SFNY for the rest. Assurances were given that we would be looking at this Autumn, but then Covid came along. It is hoped that the work to connect the rest of the village will resume shortly.

A64 Junctions
Councillors met with contractors to discuss safety of works being carried out at the low junctions and general issues with both junctions.
50ph limit is now being imposed on this stretch of A64. There is concern at how this will be signposted for HA and any impact on traffic speeds.

Trees
A tree inspection has been carried out and work identified – to be discussed in ordinary meeting.

Footpaths
The footpath footpath monitoring group carried out an inspection of rights of way in the parish. The estate carried out works to rectify any issues identified. This exercise has been repeated this year.

Grass cutting

The PC paid for grass cutting on the greens, some verges and general tidying of the village. The contractor continues to do a very good job on this work.

Planning applications
The PC has continued to publish planning applications to the HA website and comment on those it has received during the year.



Auditor
Following the departure of Avril Monks, Richard Green stepped in as internal auditor and was extremely helpful and supportive of the chairman and clerk in this process.

Departure

This will be my final meeting as chairman and councillor and Sarah’s as clerk. The PC might want to consider a rotating chairmanship in future, but that is a matter for the PC to decide. Both chair and clerk will continue to fulfil their roles until replacements are in place prior to the next parish council meeting on September 15th 2020.


FINANCE: 
The PC’s expenditure was £2086 and income was £2800, resulting in an excess for the year of £714. The balance in the account at the end of the year, including reserves, was £7,324. Expenditure was less than budgeted owing to tree work not being completed until the new financial year. The excess carried over will be used to fund the tree work.
