Coronavirus update from Bill Winning, Chairman of the Parish Council:
The Coronovirus epidemic is affecting all our lives and all organisations including Parliament itself. Whilst the way in which Parish Councils should be conducted has not been set in stone, meetings of all types are being discouraged. One firm decision has been filtered down which is that the need for a mandatory Annual Meeting has been suspended.Therefore the Annual Parish Council Meeting and the Annual Parish Meeting which are held in May will be not now take place. In accordance with recommendations from Yorkshire Local Councils Association the Parish Council recently held an Extraordinary Meeting at which the powers of the Council were devolved to the Chairman and acting Parish Clerk, with a succession line decided in case the arrangement is altered by the current epidemic. Meetings will no longer take place until the epidemic has passed. Issues arising over the next few months will be noted and discussed at regular intervals via remote means including email and the telephone, with all Councillors being consulted as they would at a formal meeting. It is likely that the format of this arrangement will be regularised in due course, depending on events relating to the epidemic. Any members of the public wishing to bring matters to the attention of the Parish Council may continue to do so and indeed, this is presently the case. The acting Parish Clerk would be pleased to hear from you by email or by telephone. In the meantime the Parish Council hope that all the residents of this Parish stay safe and as well as possible. In case of isolation and/or need for assistance, your attention is drawn to the CV Support Group and to NHS as well as Government health warnings that can be easily accessed online.

Your Terrington Parish Councillors are here to represent and help you. Find out who they are and what they do by reading information on this website, in particular the Minutes of the meetings as well as the Agendas of past and proposed meetings.

Why not have you say in local matters, by e-mailing, phoning or writing to any of your Parish Councillors or your Parish Clerk. If we are unable to deal with an issue you may have then we can direct you to other organisations or authorities who may be able to assist you, or we may be able to raise issues with another authority on your behalf.

Also on this website are items of news and useful contact details of local and regional organisations that are relevant to this Howardian Hills community.


Who are we?

A group of around a hundred Terrington residents who are offering practical NON MEDICAL help to other residents, particularly those who need to self-isolate due to the Covid 19 crisis.

What type of help do we offer?

Practical help – picking up grocery and other supplies, collecting and delivering prescriptions, possibly walking dogs, putting out bins and similar activities.
Also, if you are finding isolation lonely, we may be able to put you in touch with others who would like a chat on the telephone.

How do you request help?

Our preferred method is if you e-mail us at:


IMPORTANT: Please ensure you include a contact telephone number in your e-mail.


Alternatively, you can telephone us between 9:00am and 8:00pm on:

07516 912092

Both with e-mail and telephone it would help us if you make any request you have before 3:00pm if possible – it gives us more time to help you.

We hope, in late afternoon/early evening, to make arrangements to help you, and to confirm these to you by the early evening. Typically, with your agreement, we will pass your details to a volunteer helper and ask them to contact you directly to deal with your request.

Lastly, if neither of the above work for you and you need urgent help please telephone any of Bill - 648409, Dave - 648165 or Ian - 648152.
