South Cave 10K Race

June 29th, 2021 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “South Cave 10K Race”


The first ever South Cave 10K is currently being organised and will take place on Sunday 25th July, with around 500 runners leaving the grounds of Cave Castle at 9.00 am. For safety reasons, there will be some temporary road closures and this notice is intended to give advance warning to residents on the race route so that they will suffer the least possible inconvenience.

Warning signs will be placed on affected roads a couple of weeks before the event and the official notices will be added to this website as soon as they have been agreed with County Hall. The route the runners will take can be seen on the map below which shows that they will head down West End after leaving the Castle, then turn into Pinfold and Annie Med before turning right into Ellerker Lane to cross the A63 and run round Common Lane.

After entering Ellerker at Ings Lane, and doing a circuit of the village, the runners will turn onto Cave Lane and return to South Cave (with a detour up Stone Pit and down Willow Flats). After coming back into West End, they will finish the 10K by turning right onto Church Street before running up behind the school and completing a circuit of the field. 

The race will end next to the bench outside the Pavilion which commemorates a well-known local runner, Bob Reay. His widow, Pat, will later present the Bob Reay shield in his memory. The earlier parts of the route will be closed to traffic from 8.30 and will reopen as soon as possible, and no later than 9.30. Further round the course, the closures will start at 9.00 and again will be reopened as soon as the runners have cleared the area. Church Street and Church Hill will reopen by 9:30 with traffic lights in place between Wadley Plump and West End until 10:30. All roads will be back to normal by 10.30 at the latest.

All road junctions will be manned by volunteer marshals, who will do their best to deal with any problems, and provision has of course been made to allow access by any emergency vehicles should the occasion arise. All participants arriving by car will be directed by marshals to turn into Wadley Plump and will park on the field or in the car park on the left going up the hill (not the one behind the tennis courts). They will be told in advance not to attempt to park elsewhere in the village.

If anyone has further questions about the proposed route, they should send them to and we will do our best to help.

Customers in East Riding of Yorkshire among Britain’s top energy switchers

Customers in the East Riding of Yorkshire are among Great Britain’s top energy switchers, with one in four of them changing their supplier in 2020, new figures have revealed.   

The figures, published by Energy UK’s Energy Switch Guarantee, show that the East Riding of Yorkshire is second in a table of the top areas in Great Britain for the most energy switching activity last year.

The local authority rankings are ordered by the percentage of properties that switched electricity supplier between January and December 2020.      

Last year, East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s YORSwitch scheme switched 5,234 households, saving East Riding residents more than £1million.   

Since the scheme began in 2013, YORSwitch has helped more than 36,000 households switch their energy tariffs, with savings of over £7.6 million.   

East Riding residents can still register for the latest YORSwitch auction, with Shell Energy the winning provider in this round.   

Residents can register and switch up until Tuesday, 6 July. 

Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for environment and climate change at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “Residents still have time to register for the latest YORSwitch round. Now is the best time to fix your energy tariff. Switching through YORSwitch, to the winning supplier which is Shell Energy, is expected to save residents money in the long term. The tariff is fixed until the end of August 2022.” To register for the latest YORSwitch auction, visit or, alternatively, call 01482 393939

Highways England. A63 Maintenance Works

June 2nd, 2021 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Highways England. A63 Maintenance Works”

1 June 2021

Dear customer,

A63 repair and improvement work – an update

We contacted you recently to let you know that A-one+, working on behalf of Highways England, will be carrying out essential maintenance work on the A63. We are writing to you again to let you know the latest about this work, as it will now start later in June.

Work is due to take place between Jct. 38 of the M62 North Cave, and the A63 South Cave. A vehicle diversion will be in place from Howden to Western Interchange.

What are we doing and why?

We will be removing and replacing sections of the central reservation barriers to maintain safety for customers.

At the same time, we will also:
• renew some signs and streetlights
• improve some sections of verge
• resurface some sections of the road
• replace road markings and reflective studs

What’s happening and when?

In our previous letter we said that work was due to start on Tuesday 1 June and that we expected to complete the work by the end of January 2022. This date has now changed. We plan to start work on Monday 28th June and expect to complete by the end of February 2022.

We will start work at one end of the road and will move along. This means that not all sections of the route will be affected at the same time.

We are working with local councils and other organisations to keep disruption to a minimum, but some of the equipment we need to use will be noisy for businesses and customers living closest to the A63.

We will be working overnight from 8pm to 6am Monday to Friday. No weekend work is planned.

At night, we’ll try to finish the noisiest parts before 11pm to minimise noise as much as we can. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

Closures, restrictions and diversions – updated

To safely complete this work, we will need to close one side of the A63 overnight where we are working. Other parts of the road, where we’re not working, will remain open.

The closures will be in-place:

• From Monday to Friday
• Between 8pm and 6am
• On one side of the A63 at a time, including side roads and slip roads

During closures, a fully signed diversion will be in place which has been agreed in advance with the local authority and police.

A 40mph speed limit will be enforced to ensure the safety of customers while traveling through the roadworks. Laybys will be closed.

For those on foot, public rights of way crossing points on the A63 will be closed overnight Monday to Friday or when work takes place. A pedestrian diversion towards Annies Med Lane will be in place at the crossings closest to South Cave.

Extra information

We’ve selected diversions which will cause the least impact to local communities. Due to the rural nature of the location, we’re working in, however, journey times could increase by up to 30 minutes. We recommend that you allow additional time if you’re planning to use the A63 during this time.

How to contact us
Details of the work is on our website

If you have any questions, or if you would like to know about our work, please contact us on 0300 123 5000 or email
