A woman from Hull has been fined £200 after a man she hired through Facebook to take away her rubbish dumped it near Skirlaugh.
A streetscene enforcement officer from East Riding of Yorkshire Council was called to investigate a report of fly-tipping found in a layby off the A165 between Skirlaugh and Coniston on 9 April this year.
This was a tough day at the office for the blue and golds. Due to a number of absences they went into this final pre-season friendly with a depleted line up.
Regular half-back pairing Lewis Straw and Lewis Poskitt were missing as were Jack Howdle, Chris Johnson, Peter Starling, Josh Poskitt, Billy Riby, Steve Connolly and Ben Bardle. Bradley Kirkby had to pull out shortly before kick off as a precautionary measure not wishing to aggravate a pulled hamstring.
Residents in the East Riding and Hull are being warned not to use the services of cold callers offering to take away scrap metal and waste.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council has issued the warning following a court case in which a Hull man was prosecuted after rubbish he gave to two men was later found dumped in a drainage ditch in Benningholme, near Skirlaugh.
The Hornsea & District Hospital War Memorial Challenge Cup, more popularly known as the Tanton Cup, after P.C. Tanton Esq who donated the trophy, is one of the oldest football cup competitions in the East Riding, and this will be its 94th anniversary year.
It is competed for by local football clubs from North Holderness and still remains a popular competition among local players and spectators. Hornsea Town are the current cup holders.
Straight from the kick off the Braves were under pressure from the much bigger Skirlaugh Bulls outfit.
The Beverley Braves coming off the back of a disappointing performance defended well for the first couple of sets and took it to the Bulls with the ball in hand. Skirlaugh’s size advantage eventually paid off after a Braves error and they crossed for the opening score.
The blue and golds will take on North Hull Knights in their next group game in the Yorkshire Men’s League 40/20 cup. Both sides recorded opening day victories against Division One opposition.
Beverley defeated Skirlaugh Bulls 28-0 and the Knights dispatched Heworth 36-14. Scott Taylor and Pat Howdle are expected to keep faith with the majority of last weeks 17 of which they believe the best is yet to be seen.
