Geoff Chapman R.I.P.
We have received the following message from his family:

According to Geoff’s wishes we have arranged the following:
He had asked for no mourning but a celebration of his life.
A service to be held on Monday 23rd April at 3.30pm Haltemprice Crematorium HU10 6NS.
This will be followed by refreshments available in the hall at Christ Church, Main Street, Swanland
No flowers but any donations collected at the service will be for Marie Cure and MacMillan nurses.

Free Logs
The site manager for the Tranby Lane development has advised that they have a pile of logs that are free to a good home. They can be collected from the gate at the near Christ Church. The log pile is fenced off from the main site and he will open the gate from 8am until 4pm so people can help them selves. He stresses that the contractors have no means to cut the timber up and cannot help with loading up.

Closure & Relocation of Swanland GP surgery
If you are a patient at the Swanland Surgery, or you know someone who is, be aware that a consultation is now ongoing with the proposal being to close the surgery and relocate it to opposite the Spire Hospital in Anlaby.

Dog Owners - please note!

· It is illegal to leave your dog’s faeces lying around in a public area
It is the responsibility of the dog owner or the person in charge to clear up after their dog
· Regulations state that being unaware that your dog has fouled,
or not having a suitable means of picking up is not a reasonable excuse for failing to clean up after a dog

Overhanging Hedges And Trees
Throughout the village hedges and trees have gained considerable foliage and with the warm and wet weather, we have recently had, are growing well. Because of this growth some of them are encroaching onto and hanging over the footpaths at the edges of your properties - see poster.
