The new book from the Sessay Archive Project, called 'Essays from Sessay' and detailing the long and fascinating story of our village, will be launched on Saturday 29th October in the Village Hall.  

Thirsk and Malton MP, Kevin Hollinrake, paid a visit to Sessay on Friday 27 May.   He attended a meeting at the Village Hall with representatives from Yorkshire Water and with local Council Members, including Cllr Mark Robson, leader of Hambleton District Council, and Cllr Bob Baker, from NYCC, to discuss improvements to the sewerage system and surface water management arrangements in Sessay.  A tour of the village followed, and we now expect further meetings to take place with the NYCC Flood Risk Management Team that will help us to develop our Surface Water Management Plan for the village.

 

Following a well attended public meeting on 20 January in the Village Hall, at which surface water management issues in the Parish were discussed as a result of the heavy rainfall we experienced on Christmas Day and Boxing Day,  the Parish Council has continued to liaise with Yorkshire Water, HDC and the NYCC Flood Risk Management Team and positive steps are now being taken towards the development of a Surface Water Management Plan (SWMP) for Sessay.  The camera survey of the sewer by Yorkshire Water is continuing and we will keep you informed as this work progresses.  For more information about SWMP's and advice on flood recovery and resilience, see links below :
