Dunholme Parish Council

A remote meeting of Dunholme Parish Council took place on Monday 1st February 2021

Cleaner required

The Parish Council are looking to employ a cleaner for the sports pavilion and play areas – it will be for a minimum of 1.5 hours a week, to include weekly cleaning of the changing rooms and toilet facilities and biweekly spraying of the play area equipment whilst necessary during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Council are happy to look at this on an employed or self-employed basis.

It is hoped that can position can be filled from March/April 2021.

If you would like any further information, please contact the Clerk.


War Memorial maintenance

Whilst out for a walk with my family we had a sit next to the church, looking towards the war memorial.  It is starting to look a little dirty and so quotes and funding to clean it are being investigated.  A quote has been received and a preliminary application for funding has been submitted.


Flooding in the village

The Parish Council are aware of several flooding issues within the village.  Please be assured that we are communicating with the necessary external bodies to try and alleviate these issues as soon as possible.


Kennington Close Play Area Improvements

A quote has been accepted for new fencing on Kennington Close play area to separate the play park from the playing field.  This will ensure that younger children or people that are wary of dogs can still use the equipment happily.  New metal fencing will also replace the old wooden kissing gate on the Wentworth Drive die of the park.

Whilst dogs can use the playing field area, please ensure they do not enter the play park area.  And please make sure you are picking up after your dog as well.

The lovely Beverley is also digging and seeding a new wildflower patch at the bottom of the field, next to the A46 fence.  Hopefully, this will add a splash of colour and if successful will be looked at for other parts of the village.


Overgrown hedges

There has been a lot of reports lately about overgrown hedges going over the boundary of people’s properties.  All hedges reported to the Parish Council are passed onto the relevant highways department.  However, residents are encouraged to report these themselves as well, either via email/telephone or through the fixmystreet website/app.  Doing it this way, updates are sent to you as and when they are undertaken.


Going forward with Covid-19 restrictions

Play areas can remain open for exercise only purposes – please ensure that social distancing and hand washing guidelines are followed.  We are washing down the high traffic areas on a regular basis to help keep you safe.

Litter picker – Our litter picker is still out working as she cannot work from home and is a lone worker, therefore she is able to continue.  When you see her out and about please feel free to give her a wave but do remember social distancing regulations.  She does a great job.


Vacant Seats

There are currently 2 vacant seats on the Parish Council – if you are interested in joining us, please contact the Clerk for further information.

Census 2021 is coming ………


The census is coming. By taking part, you can help inform decisions on services that shape your community, such as healthcare, education, and transport. The census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years. It gives us a snapshot of all the people and households in England and Wales – the most detailed information we have about our society.


It is important that you fill in your census questionnaire. Without the information you share, it would be more difficult to understand your community’s needs and to plan and fund public services. In one way or another, your information touches the lives of every single person living in England and Wales, whether it is through using census information to plan new schools, doctors’ surgeries, or bike lanes.


Because these things matter to us all, everyone needs to complete the census. Do not worry, government officials dealing with applications you have made or payments or services you receive cannot see it. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) runs the census in England and Wales and is independent from government. Your details are protected by law and information published is always anonymous.


 Census Day is Sunday 21 March 2021. You can fill yours in online as soon as you get your access code in the post. If your household circumstances change on Census Day, you can let the ONS know. Everyone should have the support they need to fill in the census. If you, or anyone you know, needs help, there is a wide range of support services available. These include a contact centre that can give you help over the phone and guidance in a range of languages and accessible formats, including paper questionnaires and large print. If you need help or have any questions, visit www.census.gov.uk


As and when further information is available, the Council will update their website and Facebook pages as well as the Parish Council noticeboard, outside Dunholme CO-OP Store
