Time to get walking again!

With Spring on its way we start to think about getting out to walk in the beautiful English countryside again, but where to find new and interesting walks?

Walking in Yorkshire https://www.walkinginengland.co.uk/yorkshire has loads of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, details of all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.

John Harris (who maintains the website) said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Yorkshire (part of the Walking in England website) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.

With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.

So home or away, check out the websites and get walking!

Responsible dog walking

Going out for a walk is an important part of your dog’s day, and the countryside can be a good place to do this. To keep you, your dog and other animals safe, follow our simple top tips for a safe countryside dog walk.


Follow the marked footpaths, close gates behind you and don’t stray into fields. Crops that are in early and later stages of growth are easily damaged by dogs and people walking on them.

Litter and dog poo

Poo bags and litter can seriously harm wildlife and farm animals as they may try to eat it, thinking it’s food. Always make sure you dispose of all your rubbish and dog poo in a bin. If there aren’t any public waste bins nearby, you should take the litter home with you and use your own bin. 

We have more information about how to dispose of different types of litter safely. Dog walkers can play an important role in keeping the countryside safe for everyone by picking up any litter you see, even if it’s not yours, and safely disposing of it in a bin. 


Many dogs will show interest in livestock and even if you think your dog wouldn’t harm another animal, accidents can happen. Dogs can easily frighten animals; ewes and lambs, in particular. Ewes can abort their unborn lambs, be separated from the herd and be seriously injured if they come into contact with dogs. Give livestock plenty of space, and don’t try to feed them as it might cause them harm.

Putting your dog in a situation where they end up chasing farm animals, wildlife or other pets can have far more serious consequences.

If your dog worries livestock, you may end up being sued for compensation and, in some circumstances, farmers are legally entitled to shoot dogs if they’re endangering their sheep.

How to stop your dog from worrying sheep

It can be all too easy to become complacent when walking your dogs, after all, it’s something we do every day. But remember, the resulting loss of life if your dog escapes your control – even for a moment – can be devastating. Don’t be caught out – follow these top tips:

  • Be aware of the effects of sheep-worrying, and let others know too
  • Make sure you know where your dog is at all times
  • If you’re letting your dog off the lead, be confident there are no livestock nearby
  • Be sure that your dog will return to you promptly on command, and if in doubt, keep them on the lead

Find out more about teaching your dog to come when called as well as other useful advice on caring for and understanding your dog.

Worried about a farm animal?

Find out who to contact if you think a farm animal is sick or injured.


Wherever you go in the countryside there will be wildlife nearby, and even though you might not be able to see them if they’re hidden away in bushes or hedgerows, dogs can still sniff them out thanks to their fantastic sense of smell. These could be young wild animals waiting for their parents, or adults trying to keep their young safe such as ground-nesting birds sitting on eggs. Be aware of areas where wildlife might be hiding and ensure your dog doesn’t disturb them, as this could cause parents to abandon their young or be chased and seriously injured by a dog. It’s the best way to keep your dog safe too, as some wild animals can be aggressive if they’re attacked and need to defend themselves or their young.

This is important all year round, but be especially careful in the spring and summer as this is when many wild animals will be breeding and have vulnerable offspring. If you are walking your dog in an area with deer between early May and late June, watch out for newborn deer who are especially vulnerable at this time and many are killed or injured by dogs. And if you’re walking on beaches or near areas where seals will come out of the water to rest, make sure your dog is on a lead and keep at least 100 metres distance and as far away from the seals as possible to avoid disturbing them.

Dogs can also harm wildlife living in ponds, as well as being at risk themselves if they swim in some ponds – find out more from Froglife.

From an idea in the Pub to UK Registered charity

After a number of humanitarian trips to help Ukrainians including the orphanage in Poland, Lee Ellerker decided the best way forward was to set up a proper charity. A few months later after jumping through a number of hoops with the help of Shaun Willox, Andrzej Frygier and Maryna Lupko we now have our charity, a bank account, a facebook and twitter page. After local and national TV exposure we are hoping to receive more donations so we can continue to help the people of Ukraine

Dog Fouling – ERYC Update

December 6th, 2022 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Dog Fouling – ERYC Update”

Update received from ERYC Dog Warden – Neil Fraser  

Many thanks for contacting us regarding the dog fouling issues in South Cave, I have conducted two patrols last week and sadly I agree with you that the irresponsible few are clearly allowing their dogs to foul in various public areas throughout the village.   You may note that I have increased the enforcement signage in the village and I have spoken to a number of local residents and encouraged them to report any information that they may have, any violations that we can prove will result in prosecution 

I will continue with the patrols and hopefully this will have a positive effect on this problem.

Please let me know If you have any further info and request residents to report dog fouling to the ERYC by visiting: Dog control and ownership (eastriding.gov.uk) or call: 01482 393939; email: dog.warden@eastriding.gov.uk

Dog Fouling

November 29th, 2022 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Dog Fouling”

Reports of excessive dog fouling around the village which is causing distress to residents are on the increase. If you are a dog walker or owner, please ensure you pick up your dog poo.

Dog fouling is a major concern to many people, not just because of the mess it causes, but because it can be a health risk. Dogs may deposit roundworm eggs (toxocara canis) in their faeces, which become infectious after about 3 weeks, and can remain so for up to 2 years.

Anyone, but particularly children playing near to the ground, can run the risk of picking up and swallowing the eggs. The eggs then hatch in the intestine, burrow through the intestine wall into the blood stream and pass into the body.

Possible symptoms of toxocaral infection range from aches, dizziness and nausea to asthma and pneumonia, but as these symptoms can all be caused by other things, infections often go undiagnosed. In the UK there are around 100 cases of toxocariasis diagnosed each year.

In rare cases eye disease and loss of vision can be caused when the toxocara larva passes through the eye.

Advance notice of roadworks – A63

We’re getting in touch to let you know we’ll soon be carrying out essential maintenance work on the A63 between North Cave and South Cave, in both directions (but not at the same time), completing this work will mean smoother and safer journeys for customers.

We plan to start work on Monday 14 November and aim to complete in December. We’ll be working overnight between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday. We cannot complete this work in harsh weather; if there are any changes, we will keep you updated on our website and social media channels.

To carry out this work safely we will first close the westbound carriageway overnight (8pm until 6am) Monday to Friday for approximately 3 weeks. Due to essential maintenance work taking place on Ouse Bridge, we plan to return to complete the eastbound carriageway in the new year.

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

  • Westbound – motorway traffic will be diverted at Western interchange (between North Ferriby and Humber Bridge) onto the A164 & A1079, through to the A614 onto junction 37 of the M62.

During the day, the carriageway will be open to traffic in both directions.

If you would like to discuss this scheme, or need further information, please contact National Highways 0300 123 5000 or email info@nationalhighways.co.uk and we can arrange for the project team to get in touch directly.

Environment Agency Update

October 20th, 2022 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Environment Agency Update”

A Flood Alert has been issued by the Environment Agency.

Flood Alert in force: River Foulness and Market Weighton catchment.

Flooding is possible for: The River Foulness and the Market Weighton Canal and their tributaries.

Be prepared.

 The Flood Alert for the River Foulness and Market Weighton is now in force. This flood alert has been issued due to rising river levels caused by persistent rainfall over the last few hours. The area of particular concern is around South Cave, and flooding may occur on low lying roads, farmlands and paths in this area. Further persistent rainfall is expected through the afternoon and into the evening today, Thursday 20/10/2022, and river levels are expected to rise further. We are monitoring the situation closely, and will update this message by 16:00 today, or as the situation changes.

To check the latest information for your area


* Visit the GOV.UK website to see the current flood warnings, view river and sea levels or check the 5-day flood risk forecast: https://check-for-flooding.service.gov.uk/target-area/122WAF974

* Or call Floodline on 0345 988 1188 using quickdial code: 138803.

* Follow @EnvAgency and #floodaware on Twitter.

* Tune into weather, news and travel bulletins on local television and radio.

What you should consider doing now


* Monitor local water levels and weather conditions. 

* Get ready to act on your flood plan if you have one.

* Move your car or other vehicles to higher ground, if it is safe to do so.

* Prepare a flood kit of essential items including a torch with spare batteries, mobile phone and charger, warm clothes, home insurance documents, water, food, first aid kit and any prescription medicines or baby care items you may need.

* Check that you know how to turn off your gas, electricity and water mains supplies.

Frequently Asked Questions

February 9th, 2021 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Frequently Asked Questions”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Parish Council?

It is a statutory local authority set up under the Local Government Act 1972. A town or Parish Council is a local authority that makes decisions on behalf of the people in the parish. It is the level government closest to the community.

Who is on the Council?

It is made up of 11 Parish Councillors who do not receive remuneration or payment for their work. They are elected once every four years. Every year the Parish Council Council elects one of them to be the Chairman of the Parish Council.

Can I attend meetings of the council?

Yes, meetings of the Parish Council and its committees are open to the public and the press, except in very exceptional circumstances. The time and place of meetings must be advertised beforehand – usually on the noticeboards and website.

Can I speak at meetings of the Parish Council?

You cannot speak while the normal business of the meeting is being conducted. However, in some meetings there is a ‘public forum’ where members of the public can speak. The Clerk can provide you with details about how this works.

How do people get elected to the council?

Elections are held every four years and will usually coincide with a District Council election. A Public Notice of a forthcoming election will be placed on noticeboards and on this website. Sometimes the number of people who put their names forward for election is less than the number of seats on the Parish Council or a councillor resigns. In these circumstances, the Parish Council can co-opt someone to fill the vacancies.

What powers does the Parish Council have with respect to planning?

The Parish Council is consulted by the relevant planning authority (which is the East Riding of Yorkshire Council) on all planning applications. Any views expressed by the Parish Council are taken into account before a decision is made. The final decision is made by the Planning Authority, not the Parish  Council.

Planning Notifications

February 9th, 2021 Posted by Planning 0 thoughts on “Planning Notifications”

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council published an article within the “Your East Riding” informing residents of the changes to their Planning Application publicity taking effect from 1 April 2017.

These changes formed part of a wider initiative to encourage a greater use of technology within the Council and the planning service, and as the ERYC would no longer be posting individual letters to neighbouring properties, the article set out the benefits for residents of registering on the ERYC Public Access website in order to keep informed of new planning applications, track applications of interest and make any comments.   Any complaints relating to these procedures should be submitted to Stephen Hunt, Head of Planning, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Cross Street, Beverley, HU17 9BA.

The Parish Council are not responsible for the notification of Planning Applications to neighbouring properties, this is the responsibility of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and complaints relating to the timing of their display notices etc should be directed to themselves at County Hall.  The Parish Council have a obligation to display Agendas for meetings providing three clear days within the Parish Notice boards both at West End – Costcutters & Market Place – Town Hall.  The Agendas are also uploaded to the Parish website www.southcavepc.gov.uk

It is important residents regularly visit the notice boards or the website to ensure they are fully up to date with matters detailed on the agenda, within the minutes and also the general information provided which may be of interest in residents and visitors to the area.

August 6th, 2018 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Defibrillators”

South Cave is proud to have five Community Public Access (Automated External) Defibrillators, (CPAD’s), which are located in yellow cabinets outside Costcutters Pinfold, South Cave Sporting Club at the playing field behind the school, Pass the Parcel (used to be South Cave Post Office) in Brough Road, All Saints Community Centre on Church Hill, and inside South Cave Sewell Service Station, behind the counter.


CPAD’s can be vitally important in saving the life of a person who may be suffering from a Cardiac Arrest.

The CPAD’s can be accessed in an emergency, 24 hours of every day, by anyone, using the following instructions:-

  • Dial 999 from any phone, or alternatively 112 from a mobile phone, and ask for an ambulance;
  • If you are within 600 metres of one of the CPAD’s, you will be alerted to it and asked “is there someone with you who can go and get it?”
  • You will also be given a code, to open the yellow cabinet;
  • Someone must stay with the patient and start administering CPR (Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation);
  • Therefore, to access the defibrillator you would need someone else with you;
  • If you are on your own, you will be advised to stay with the patient and start CPR, without delay;
  • After retrieving the defibrillator, or if you are on your own with the patient, you will be guided through CPR and the defibrillator’s use, by an Emergency Call Handler.

As soon as possible, you will be joined by trained emergency personnel from Yorkshire Ambulance Service, (maybe initially one of the local Community First Responders), who will take over from you immediately, and may appreciate you staying at the scene, in case you can assist.


Please be assured that you can make an immediate difference to the patient’s chances of a full recovery, if you follow this process – you do not need to be specially trained – you will be supported throughout by the Emergency Call Handler.
