A Message from North Yorkshire Police

Dear Residents,
Recently we have had a number of reports of suspicious white vans driving around looking for scrap metal in Bishopthorpe and surrounding areas. Several reports suggest that the drivers of these vehicles are actually accessing gardens and trespassing on land without the owner’s permission. We ask that you report such incidents and also take a note of any vehicle registrations and descriptions.
It may be worth reviewing your out-building security and home security in the run up to the Christmas period and darker nights.
Your local Police team are patrolling the rural parts of York such as Bishopthorpe and Copmanthorpe, so please say hello to the officers. We can offer free home crime prevention advice along with property marking services.
Regards
North Yorkshire Police

Bishopthorpe Parish Council Youth Awards

We are looking for any nominees people feel would be deserving of being recognised for the work they contribute to the community.

The Youth Award scheme was created to recognise the good things that young people in the village do – particularly for others. The scheme has run each year since 2001.

Two awards of £150 are made each year to young people aged 11 to 18.

The closing date for nominations will be 12 December 2018 and further details will appear in Link nearer the time and on posters around the village.

So – please look around at the young people in the village and the Parish Council looks forward to receiving your nominations to be sent to:
The Parish Council Clerk, Bishopthorpe Village Hall, Main Street, Bishopthorpe.
