Mr Jones was born in Wood Cottage, Sandholme then spent his childhood at Smithy Cottage next door to the Scholfield Village Hall in Skelton. After the renovations he was one of the 2 men who cut the ribbon to the village hall. 

He passed at the grand old age of 89 on 26th October 2023 and there will be a service at Haltemprice Crematorium Chapel on Wednesday 15th November to celebrate his life.

Car Parking at Scholfield Village Hall 

Following a discussion by Parish Councillors at the March Parish Council Meeting, concerning car parking at Scholfield Village Hall, please be aware of the following:

 The car park at the Hall is private property, owned and managed by the Parish Council and provided for users of the Hall.

 However, the Parish Council will allow temporary resident parking, strictly by prior approval by contacting the Parish Clerk – or 01430 410383.

 The arrangement for resident parking will be for a maximum period of three days and is meant to be a temporary arrangement to cover particular circumstances which mean the resident is unable to temporarily use their own parking facility. Any longer periods of parking will only be permitted in exceptional circumstances and by approval of the Parish Council.

 The Parish Council reserve the right to refuse parking if this impacts on users of the Hall.

 The Parish Council reserve the right to take appropriate action if any of the above are breached.
