We Are Bronte

Village Hall, March 12th £7.50

Publick Transport


Publick Transport We Are Brontė

We Are Brontė is a piece of comic visual theatre inspired by the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire's literary siblings, presented in Publick Transport's irreverent style. Physical theatre collides with stand-up, clowning and improvisation as two performers deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness, repression and revenge, but also themselves. Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this promises to be no ordinary Brontė adaptation. Publick Transport was established in 2005 by Angus Barr, who co-founded and worked for many years with Ridiculusmus Theatre Company and occasionally with Gonzo Moose Theatre Company.
"Physical theatre at its most superb, and its most silly....Angus Barr and Sarah Corbett are uniquely captivating." Public Reviews. and reviews of previous work:
"a thing of sublime comic beauty"
"pure genius...a brilliant bonkers show" Bristol Culture on 'Discombobulated'
"a beautifully crafted piece of comedy that is wonderfully witty and anarchic" Dorset Echo on
'20,000 Leagues Under the Office'

March 12th 8pm £7.50

Beware of local scams

Rogue trader scam alert over bogus council worker

By Scunthorpe Telegraph  |  Posted: January 21, 2016

Householders in North Lincolnshire are being warned about cold callers

North Lincolnshire Council says it has been made aware of a rogue trader cold calling homes in the district and falsely claiming to work for the local authority.

The council is urging householders to remain vigilant and not to engage with cold callers who appear at their doors.

This man claims to work for North Lincolnshire Council and shows a fake ID badge.

The badge does not have a photograph, which all council ID badges carry.

He has already visited a number of homes across North Lincolnshire requesting that people pay him to trim back trees or bushes, and if they don’t they will be prosecuted and fined thousands of pounds.

"This is not something the council would do," the local authority said.

"If this man approaches you or if you have been scammed by him, please contact Trading Standards on 01724 297659.

"It is important that people are alert and report anything suspicious or cold callers to the Citizen Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 040506."

Councillor Neil Poole, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, at North Lincolnshire Council said: “We have received a number of complaints about this rogue trader so we are urging people to be vigilant. It is horrible to think that there are people out there willing to take advantage of good people.

"If you have not requested someone to come to your house, then you should always be cautious about these so-called traders turning up unannounced.

“Remember that a council employee carries photographic ID and any relevant paperwork. If you want to check if a caller works for North Lincolnshire Council, you can ring our customer contact centre on 01724 297000. It is always better to be safe than sorry.”


A woman was texted from “” and told that she was due a rebate from NLC.  She was given a link and told to provide her bank details.  NLC state that they would never contact people by text, and if in doubt, give no details but contact their customer services by phone 01724 297000, or email:

Winteringham Fact:

Number 488
Two Imminghams!

Hull, and Goole, were concerned 110 years ago that the new port of Immingham that was being built, would be replicated upriver at Winteringham, where there were plans to build another dock (not necessarily as big as the one at Immingham), and/or a pier into the river!  In the event neither were built of course .... but we had them worried for a while!

Important notice of change to website

As you may have read in the Village Newsletter, the Parish Council have decided to use a domain name.  There are very strict rules for organisations which use the domain extension.  Organisations using it must only carry their information on that site, and not have “other” sites with extensions such as .info, or

Once the Parish Council have their site up and running in the new year, all the “official” Parish Council news, reports, etc will be removed from this site, to comply with the rules for their new domain name. 

Other sites: The PC Minutes website will be required to close completely and be removed from the web once the new site is launched by the Parish Council.  Until that time I shall continue to fund, maintain and upload PC Minutes to the site.
