Love2shop Voucher Scam

Earlier this year we let you know about counterfeit Love2Shop vouchers which were in circulation and we've been updated that a new counterfeit voucher is in use across the country. 

It's easy to spot the difference as the counterfeit voucher mentions a retailer 'Pet Stop' on the front and genuine Love2Shop vouchers don't include this. 

If you believe you have a counterfeit voucher, please email:

Never purchase gift vouchers from adverts on buying and selling sites like Facebook or Gumtree. Love2Shop vouchers should only ever be purchased in person from retailers or online from

If you think you have been a victim of fraud please call the police on 101. Email tracking gif

You may be aware that Posterngate GP practice in Selby is considering closing the branch surgery and pharmacy in Hemingbrough.

To fight this, Hemingbrough Parish Councillors have conducted a survey on access to primary healthcare in our own village and in nearby Cliffe and South Duffield.

Now we’d like to hear from the residents in other rural areas about their experiences travelling to and from their GP surgeries in Selby and Selby War Memorial Hospital. 

We are interested in the views of people from across the entire Selby Town Primary Care Network, which means those who are registered with Posterngate Surgery, Beech Tree Surgery, Scott Road Medical Centre and Escrick Surgery. We want to see if there are any recurring issues for rural residents which we need to highlight.

We may ‘crunch’ this information and extract anonymous quotes from it to submit to Vale Of York CCG but will treat all individual responses as confidential. We will not be using it for any other purpose.

Residents can email their comments to us at (stating where they live).

Or they can write a letter to:  

Mrs Julie Leighton-Eshelby 

Clerk To The Council

Riccall Parish Council  invite any individual submitting a comment to copy it to us if they so wish.  We are aware of local concern regarding this issue, and this is already an item on the agenda for our next full council meeting. 



2021/1043/FULM: Erection of up to 82 dwellings, including associated landscaping, public open space, and the formation of a new vehicle access -off Wheatfileds Walk, Riccall.

Please send any comments you have direct to Selby DC Planning to make your comments count, but we would appreciate a copy of your response to gauge resident’s views.  Thank you.


Scam Tv Engineers

We’ve been made aware that fraudsters are posing as TV engineers and offering to help local residents retune their TV's following the Bilsdale mast fire for a fee of £200. We've been advised that this is not legitimate activity and advise you not to accept unsolicited offers of help.

If anyone knocks on your door to offer this service, do not let them into your home and do not give them any money.

Arqiva, the company which owns the Bilsdale mast, has informed us they are developing an official support plan with local organisations and we will share details of this when they are finalised.

If anyone approaches you at your home and you are concerned, do not let them in and call the police on 101 to report this.
