Updates and News

The East Riding Community Transport organisation are working with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to gather resident's views on existing community transport services across the area and how it could be improved in the future.


East Riding Community Transport can deliver door-to-door minibus services where no conventional services exist, or for anyone who cannot easily access existing public transport options for whatever reason.

Neighbourhood Watch:

Many of you may be aware of Neighbourhood Watch and the benefits such a programme can offer.

Neighbourhood Watch supports individuals and groups to create safer, stronger and more active communities.

We are very lucky that Howden resident, Matt Sharp, has volunteered to become a Neighbourhood Watch Lead Coordinator for our town and to show our support for this scheme, Howden Town Council have also registered with East Riding of Yorkshire Council Neighbourhood Watch.

We already have some areas covered by our long-standing Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators, however if you would like further information and / or would like to register your street then please contact Maureen Yates, the Crime Resilience Officer for East Riding of Yorkshire Council on 01482 396380 or via email at Maureen.yates@eastriding.gov.uk

Let’s support each other and get involved …
