Do you know who was involved?

Did you see a street fight last last weekend?

If so, you are needed to come forward to solve this crime and identify the perpetrators as caught late at night on video camera!

Pullans Family Butcher’s shop window was put-in, possibly accidentally, by a couple of play-fighters after a night out in the pubs this last weekend.

Thursday: normal service resumes – new window fitted

Replacement window fitted today

 

Preparations underway for November switch-on

Lots to see and do: cookery theater

Cookery theater under a marquee wows crowds!

All good organic green stuff grown in the ground! Locally-produced fresh produce.

Cottingham Sunday food and drink market packed yesterday!

also catering for those ‘on the wagon‘ ..

Some Sasparilla Sir?

 and off ..

Also seen: Great Newsome Brewery

Local farmers made a wise business decision to diversify getting a grant in 2007 to expand their micro-brewery to now provide a range of seasonal beers

 

And now for something completely different – ‘off the back of the lorry’, Sir?

Certainly not!

There was none of that slightly dowdy ‘off the back of a lorry‘ feel you get in some markets, as all the stalls presentations and produce were of first rate quality – credit to Cottingham Sunday Market and the event organizers!

A Sunday Market has been offered to Traders instead and the Application can be updated

Beverley Bar Historic Landmark

A meeting is to be held by the Cottingham & District Traders Association in the King William IV on the 12th. August to discuss the Application. All traders and businesses in the area are welcome to attend.

Ancient bylaws can sometimes catch you out! We’d love to hear your own stories relating to this too ..

A story was once related to the editor by an old friend who shocked everyone by turning up on a horse one day to take the first of his final university examinations. He said, turning to the astounded adjudicator in the entrance to the hall on dismounting: “Tend my horse!”
The adjudicator replied: “Why should I do that?”
My old friend said: “The University bylaws state that all students attending the University premises for the day shall by right have their horses tended!”
Well as you can imagine, there was uproar! One doesn’t suppose much ‘examining’ got done that day!

Not to be out-witted by a lone maverick student on a horse, the perplexed professors deliberated long and hard and on the final day of the examinations, my old friend was called-out of the examination hall mid-exam and hauled before the committee of adjudicators.
Old friend asked worriedly: “Why have I been called out of the examination?”
The adjudicators spokesperson replied: “For failing to wear your sword!”
Old friend: “Why should I wear my sword?”
Spokesperson: “Because another of our ancient bylaws also states: individuals must wear their swords whilst taking their examinations!”

P.S. My old friend did pass his exams, fortunately!

The Council has had to turn-down the Application for holding a Saturday Market in Cottingham because it lies within six and two-third miles of the Beverley Saturday Market!

Although you’ll agree it is well over five miles to Beverley by road from Cottingham, this allows Beverley to preserve its ancient bylaws which have included the protection of their Saturday Market traders from nearby market competition and the rights of all farmers and animal owners to graze their cows on Beverley Westwood.

Some Bylaw Research: Registered Common Land RCL

Beverley Comprises Four Pastures (N, S, E & W)

The wellbeing of the pastures including most famously Beverley Westwood is overseen by the Pasture Masters, a group of men elected from the Freemen of Beverley each March. Although the Pasture Act of 1836 clarified the right of the Pasture Masters to administer and enforce their bylaws, it did not state who ‘owned’ the land. In 1978 the courts decided that the pastures were owned by the then Borough Council; it is now ‘owned’ by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council as RCL.

Planning and Usage Applications including RCL usage are governed by the Council
