has been several acts of vandalism to a property backing onto Southfield Lane involving the cutting through of mature
trees belonging to the resident. This has been reported to the police. Should anyone see anything suspicious whilst walking
dogs etc. please contact the Clerk on 01904 738751or the police.
The Parish Council can announce more success in that Yorwaste have installed CCTV
cameras at the site entrance to deter waste HGV's passing through Rufforth. The site entrance should very soon be
reconfigured to make it impossible for HGVs to turn right exiting the site. We also have an Operating Agreement, if you see
HGVs coming through the village which you think should not be, or problems with litter then please go to the Neighbourhood
Plan website or contact the Clerk on 738751.
The subject of dog fouling continues to blight the village . The most recent abuses relate to Hannam
Lane. Residents using this public footpath are reminded of their responsibilities with regard to clearing up after their dogs.
Little pink circles are appearing to identify where an offence has been committed.
Please be considerate to others.

Access to Healthcare Project
There is £110.50 sitting in the Parish Council’s funds for access to healthcare.

anywhere near the time needed, then you could take a taxi, ask for a receipt and claim it back through this fund. It is open
to anyone in Rural West York. Please contact the Clerk if you wish to claim and have a valid receipt.
