Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.
AN INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY
WELCOMING YOU TO HUGGATE
Huggate village actually lies in a hollow, but remains the highest village on the Yorkshire Wolds at around 558 feet (170 metres) above sea level. The high spots around the village give fabulous views across the Yorkshire Wolds.
The village contains many features such as the beautiful parish church of St Mary which is a grade 1 listed building, one of the deepest wells in England, 116 yards deep, which previously supplied the inhabitants of this village with water and also a well renowned local hostelry called the Wolds Inn.
In the 2001 UK Census Huggate parish had a population of 317.
Around the area lie many popular walks such as the picturesque Minster Way, with its steep-sided dales. The Yorkshire Wolds Way long distance footpath passes to the north of the village
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
St. Mary's Church is part of the Pocklington Group of churches.
Services are held every Sunday (except on the fifth Sunday when there are five Sundays in the month) at 9.15. The usual pattern is morning prayer on the first, second and fourth Sundays, and Holy Communion on the third Sunday.
Huggate News is produced at the beginning of the month and is circulated to the village. We are grateful to Huggate Parish Council for assistance with duplication costs.
If you would like to ensure that you receive a copy (whether you live in the village or further out), it can be sent by email.
Council meetings are held on the third Tueday of the month
at 7pm in the Juliarnos meeting room in Huggate.
Parish Councils operate as non-political bodies serving the community by dealing with local issues and working with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to represent the concerns of the parish.
The new village car park in what was the pit area to the east of the village will be open for vehicles from 23rd May 2022.
There are additional items to be installed shortly, waste bin, info sign board, direction signage, seeding to bank areas and front verge, height barrier to entrance and tables for picnic area.
