A video organised by us at Sherburn in Elmet Community Trust and Sherburn Coronavirus Aid Group, funded by Selby District Council, has been produced to showcase the amazing work which has taken place over the last few months. This video shows the vital work that over 100 volunteers put into helping the community during the Covid-19 crisis.
Help for the residents of Sherburn in Elmet during the peak of the crisis included shopping, book loans, delivery of prescriptions, befriending and more. The group were also responisble for errecting the flags and banners around the village to say thank you the the NHS and keyworkers.

‘Welcome to Sherburn in Elmet’ is the official information guide to the village of Sherburn in Elmet. The 36-page booklet contains information on the history of the village, community groups and services, venues, sport and activities, and local businesses. There’s also a helpful map of the village with points of interest and central businesses and services.
Every home in Sherburn should have received a copy in early 2019. A supply was also given to house builders ready for residents moving into their new home.
This is only available in paper copy. Further copies are available free of charge from:
A new community newsletter is now available for Sherburn in Elmet, called ‘Sherburn Informer’. This replaces the previous ‘Community Informer’ which was delivered to all homes in the village. Download the first issue here.
Just before Christmas 2018 the announcement was made from the Community Association that the Community Informer would cease. This was sad news for hundreds of residents who relied upon the publication to keep up to date with what was going on around the village. The Parish Council, Community Association and Creative Shed Agency met to discuss in detail how the publication would be able to continue, if there were other options available and if it was viable to have a publication at all. It was agreed that the informer in its current form could not continue but there was a definite need for something in its place.
The new ‘Sherburn Informer’ although a lighter publication will be produced bi-monthly with the first issue covering April and May. It will be funded through the Parish Council and the new editor Anne-Marie Oldroyd will be compiling the information.
In each issue, you will find information about what’s on, the Parish Council report, news and contributions from local groups and clubs and other relevant information and news from the village. If you would like to contribute any news or information you can contact the editor on 07410453584 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whilst it the newsletter will no longer be posted to each house, it will be available to collect and it can be delivered direct to the elderly residents in the village.
