Welcome To Alne Village

25-Nov-2021: Click here to see the November Parish Newsletter (in full colour).

25-Nov-2021: Work is underway to replace the broken glass in the station noticeboard but it is high-quality safety glass and there is some difficulty in obtaining a replacement sheet. Not sure we can blame Covid or the Suez Canal but our usual suppliers have disappeared.

14-Nov-2021: Lamp posts. The lamp post outside the Village Hall has been repaired. The two failures in Hallgarth have been reported. The one at the bottom of Monk Green is the subject of discussion by HDC/NYCC as to where a replacement should be situated - preferably where it won't be knocked over again!

01-Nov-2021: Defibrillator training. Further to the training recently given in the Village Hall, further aids are available. There is a helpful YouTube video to be found by clicking here.  There are also online sessions available from the Yorkshire Ambulance Service on:
1st December at 2pm; 1st December at 7pm; 4th December at 10am. You can register for any one of the sessions free of charge by clicking here.

21-Oct-2021: Alne Village Speed Surveys. The report and conclusions on the speed surveys that have been carried out over the past few months can be found by clicking here. Alne Parish Council will continue to monitor the situation.

20-Oct-2021: Chris Bond's personal story of his channel swim (in support of which many of you have donated) can be found by clicking here.

08-Oct-2021: The Coronavirus Plague in Alne. Chapter 5 of the diary (covering May to September 2021) can now be read by clicking here. Earlier chapters can be found here.

27-Sep-2021: Running Track in Alne? Alne Parish Leisure Association (APLA), the charity that runs the leisure and sports facilities on the main playing field, are looking at the possibility of installing a wheelchair-accessible 500-metre running track around the perimeter of the park. Current thoughts are that this would be along the lines of the successful track recently installed at Millfield in Easingwold.

Would you be a user of this facility? Would you help to make it happen? We believe that APLA can fund this with the help of relevant grants but we will still need a small enthusiastic working group to take this project forward and bring it to fruition. If you are interested in using such a facility and/or helping to make it happen, please register your interest by calling 838265, by emailing Robert at [email protected], or by using the Contact facility on this website. Thank you.

10-Sep-2021: Foodbank. At the request of Alne Parish Council, the collection point for the Easingwold District Food Bank has been re-instituted at Spring Cottage. Same place as it was during the lockdowns, on the north side of Main Street, two houses to the east of the main X-roads. Our thanks to the McCraes who lend their enthusiasm, their concern and their garden for this very worthwhile project.

05-Aug-2021: New updated indexed maps of Alne are now available. Click here for Alne East or Alne West.

19-Jun-2021: Missing bridge: Alne Parish Council has been in contact again with NYCC Footpaths about the missing bridge over the Kyle and the dangerous and unacceptable diversion along the main road. We are assured again that we are the top priority in Hambleton District although we understand that the recent collapse of a footbridge in Thirsk may take a higher priority as it is much more heavily used. Alne Parish Council has no direct responsibility for footpaths and bridges although we will of course continue to press our case.
