MELSONBY LIBRARY – Volunteers required

Melsonby Library
For several years before Covid put a stop to it, Melsonby had a small library in the church, with books, including some for children, provided by North Yorkshire County Council Library Service and changed every 3 months.
Ian and Jean Simpson serviced this arrangement excellently, but do not wish to carry on, so we now need a couple or two or three friends to take over, if we are to continue this service.  It would be an ideal volunteering role for newly retired people looking for something interesting and worthwhile to take on.
The users did not need a library ticket, just to sign in a book the titles they had taken.  It was not used by many people, but now the church is used more widely, perhaps the clientele would increase? People could pick up books on Friday mornings  when visiting the PO or coffee morning, or it could be any other time during daylight hours when the church is open.
If you could be interested, please contact the Parish Clerk, Jenny Pears by email: melsonbyp8@gmail.com or telephone: 07585837716.

ROAD RESURFACING NOTICE – SILVER STREET, BARTON

This letter is to inform you that Hanson Contracting on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council will be undertaking resurfacing of the carriageway of Silver Street, Barton. The works include replacement of the full width of the road surface from the 30mph limit on the west of the village to St Cuthbert’s Green.

Please note that during the construction of the scheme it will be necessary to close Silver Street in both directions to enable the surfacing work to be carried out safely. A signed diversion route will be in place.  These works are currently programmed to commence on Monday 22nd November 2021 and are expected to last for 3 weeks.

The works will be carried out between 0800 and 1800, Monday to Friday and the road closure will be in place between these times only.  This may inevitably delay vehicular travel but we will endeavour to minimise the duration of the road closure where possible. 

Please note, this work is part of an extensive programme and therefore it is possible that some adjustment to this start date or the duration of the works may be necessary should unforeseen circumstances such as significant weather events or emergencies on the highway network arise.   

We request your assistance in the following ways: –

  • Please contact the Contract Manager on 07970 036603, or the Council Customer Service Centre, 01609 780780, to advise of any special access needs you may require during the work period;
  • Cooperate and comply with any instructions issued by site staff and the Traffic Safety & Control Officer and take extra care whilst near the works area.
