30-Sep-2021: Defibrillator training. The first post-Covid training session on the Alne defibrillator will take place on Tuesday 19-October at 8:00pm in the Village Hall. Contact Parish Councillor Eddie Edwards on 07583-377276 or [email protected] to book a place. First come, first served.
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: 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.

19-Jun-2021: Alne Village Speed Surveys: You may have noticed that Alne Parish Council has been carrying out speed checks around the village over the last seven weeks. These will continue at different locations and times and a report on the evidence and conclusions will be made back to Alne Parish Council in due course. No individual data from these surveys is being shared outside Alne Parish Council.
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.
