National Grid are proposing to build a new high voltage electricity transmission line and associated works between a new substation north of Hull at Creyke Beck and a new substation at High Marnham in Nottinghamshire. Please find via the attached link an important communication with regards to the National Grid Proposals and Consultation.

Free activities for children and young people on the Council’s Holiday Activities and Food Programme

ERYC have requested Ellerker Parish Council to share some information about the Holiday Activities and Food programme (HAF).  ERYC are into the second year of a 3-year Department for Education funded programme which enables children and young people who are in receipt of benefits related free school meals who attend an East Riding school to eat healthily and be active during the school holidays.  There are over 40 HAF delivery partners organising fun activities across the East Riding throughout the 6-week summer holidays, with sessions lasting at least 4 hours and a meal is provided for each participant too.  All of the programmes are inclusive, but ERYC also offer a specific programme of activities for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
ERYC recognise the pressures on low-income families particularly in the holiday period and ask for help in spreading the word about these free activities.  Attached are some flyers of all the programmes.  
If parents and carers see something they like, all they have to do is get in touch with the provider to secure their child’s place.  All East Riding pupils in receipt of benefits related free school meals are able to attend a maximum of 16 activities for free in the summer holidays. 
HAF is a targeted programme, so for everyone else who isn’t eligible, the school’s out website is starting to be populated with new sessions being added daily
If you have any queries or need the information please do get in touch with:-

These will need to be sent in electronically by e-mail to I would remind candidates that once nominations have been submitted, alterations cannot be made (apart from to correct very minor errors).

  • If a candidate is standing for a political party, please ensure that Form 2 (Certificate of Authorisation), or if a separate Certificate of Authorisation) is being used, this is signed by a person authorised to sign on behalf of the Nominating Officer. To help with this and to avoid any undue delay, could I please ask that the electoral services team receive the proper written notification from the political party concerned. This is often called a certificate of delegated authority for the nomination of candidates and the use of a party emblem or something similar. This provides the confirmation that the person signing Form 2 does have the authority of the political party’s nominating officer to act on their behalf with regards to the nomination of candidates.

Voter ID

 You will be aware that the Election Act 2022 has introduced voter identification at polling stations. Whilst there are various information and awareness campaigns being run by the electoral commission nationally, supplemented by local authorities local and regionally, I would like to encourage all candidates to help in making voters aware of the need to ensure they have an acceptable form of photographic ID with them when visiting the polling station on polling day. Ahead of polling day, a voter who does not have one of the forms of photo ID, can apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate.

Further information about this can be found at Voter ID | Electoral Commission Information is also available on the Council’s website at
