Burn village’s 2019 Christmas lights switch-on will take place on Saturday 23 November.

This year’s ‘local hero switcher-onner’ is Martin Wedgwood, North Yorkshire Police Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Selby.

Minster FM, with presenter Victoria Charles and the Minster Monster, will once again be joining in the fun with music, games and some live reporting of the day’s events and there’s the Xmas market, with refreshments and some great children’s activities, from 2.30 to 4.30pm, in Burn Methodist Chapel.

There’ll be a chance to browse cards, crafts, cakes, chutneys, Christmas wreaths and plants, pet gifts and leather goods and sample some new lines at Morrisons pre-Christmas tasting stand, with an opportunity to order for your festive get-togethers. Plus you can try your luck at the tombola or Name the Teddy.

Paula Marie, the Vintage Vocalist, a firm favourite at village events, will be entertaining market visitors from 3pm and will then lead the carol singing on the green opposite the Wheatsheaf pub for the switch-on ceremony from approximately 4.45pm.

Use of Tasers by North Yorkshire Police

Julia Mulligan, NY Police Commissioner, would like as many people as possible to tell her their views on whether they think police officers on North Yorkshire’s streets should routinely carry Tasers.

The survey is open now at and runs until Sunday 29 September.

The decision on the deployment of Taser is ultimately down to the Chief Constable but, ahead of that being made, she wants to know whether people feel greater investment in the devices is the right thing to do, and if communities would feel safer.
