New Parish Councillors

The Parish Council is very pleased to announce two new Parish Cllrs, Carl Stevens and Justin Arnold

Gilberdyke Playground (November 5th Lockdown Update)

In accordance with Government guidance the village playground will remain open for the foreseeable future.  Gilberdyke Parish Council has created a risk assessment to minimise risk of the transmission of Covid-19.  However, it is impossible to entirely remove all risk and therefore anyone using the playground does so at their own risk and must take personal responsibility for their (and their children) well-being by observing the following measures.

Gilberdyke Parish Council will monitor the situation and if Cllrs feel the following risk assessment measures are not being observed, it will not hesitate to close the playground again.  The following measures are in place to mitigate risk to the public

  • if you or any member of your household has coronavirus symptoms or are self-isolating, then you must not visit our playground
  • no more than 10 people should be in the playground at any time and try and limit your visit to one hour to allow others to use the playground especially when busy
  • only one parent / guardian should enter the playground to supervise their child or children and only children from the same household or bubble should use a piece of play equipment at the same time
  • you and your children should stay at least 2 metres apart from others unless they are from the same household or bubble – or 1 metre if you are wearing face coverings
  • sanitise your children’s hands before and after they use the equipment – scientific advice suggests that the virus can survive for up to several days on some hard surfaces. It is recommended you sanitise hands after using each piece of equipment in the playground
  • there should be no eating or drinking while in the playground and encourage children to avoid putting their mouths on equipment, their hands in their mouths, or to touch their face
  • leave the playground clean and tidy for others, take your litter home with you or put it any bins provided

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Parish Clerk on

Gilberdyke Parish Council Launch a new Youth Project

Following the dissolving of the Newport and Gilberdyke Youth Project in August, Gilberdyke Parish Council is very pleased to announce it is establishing a new Youth Project in order to continue to work with young people in the area and provide them with a service which provides entertainment, fun, guidance and opportunity.  The new project will be spearheaded by Gemma Wallace and Fiona Rainforth who were involved in the previous scheme, and Cllrs are confident that their considerable experience and knowledge will ensure the new project is a roaring success.

These are early days for the Project and there is much to do – the Parish Council will review the project on a regular basis, measuring its success and ensuring it is fit for purpose and a formal review is scheduled in six months time to determine the future of the project.

Our Mission statement can be found here Youth Project Mission Statement

We hope everyone will agree a Youth Project is a valuable asset for the community and Cllrs are both excited and proud to be proving the opportunity for this to happen.  A key aspect of the new project will be to listen to young people themselves in what they want out of the project, and we shall keep everyone up to date on our progress.  This website has a dedicated page for the Youth Project and also a Facebook Page, both of which we shall use to update the community.
