Welcome

Selby Town Council office will be closed from 4.00pm on Christmas Eve and reopens on Friday 2 January 2015 at 10.00am.

Message from the Mayor of Selby, Councillor Rosie Corrigan

As 2014 draws to a close, we have the opportunity to reflect on the year that we leave behind. 

We remember the highlights. I will remember being fortunate enough to have spent my year meeting our wonderful local children and young people. I will remember meeting Selby’s incredible Young Carers who have and will continue to inspire me for years to come.

I will also remember 2014 as the year of honouring the memory of the men, women and children in this special centenary year of the First World War who sacrificed so much of their present, for the future that we live in. It has been moving and uplifting to see so many local children playing their part in remembering them. They have written poems, lit candles and even built a peace garden. Selby’s children, our future, will never forget.

Being born and bred in Selby I know how generous local people are. That is why I ask you at this time of celebration to think especially of those who may not be as fortunate as you are. I ask you to think particularly of the local children whose Christmas time may not be as fortunate as others’. And I ask you to do something about it. To donate to or volunteer at the local food bank to ensure that local families don’t go hungry. Or to support charities who give gifts to children locally who would otherwise miss out this Christmas time. And I ask you to consider making your New Year’s Resolution to help local children and young people in any way that you can, because in 2015 just as in 2014, we will still have children who will somehow need your help.

On behalf of Selby Town Council, I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful New Year.
