Filey’s inshore lifeboat was called to two separate incidents involving kayakers within the space of an hour at lunchtime on Saturday 14th October.

Shortly before 12noon, Humber coast guard requested the launch of Filey’s inshore lifeboat, Braund, following reports of 3 kayakers in difficulty at the end of Filey Brigg in a strong and freshening off-shore wind. The local fishing vessel “Boy Alan” was alongside and giving some lee to the kayakers, one of whom had capsized and was struggling against the cold,

The ILB launched shortly before high water, crewed by Neil Cammish, Gary Wilson and Tom Barkley and were with the kayakers a few minutes later.

The ILB crew retrieved the kayakers and their kayaks from the water and took them back to Coble Landing, Filey to hand them over to Filey Coastguard Rescue Team cold but otherwise none too worse for their experience.

Meanwhile, it had been established that the kayakers had been with a party of 10 and although 5 had made their own way back to the beach and 3 had been rescued by the ILB, a further 2 kayakers who had managed to land on Filey Brigg needed assistance, especially as it was now high water.

Filey was invaded by West Highland Terriers last week. 

A special walk has been organised along the beach for those who own a Westie, although people with other breeds of dog are welcome to take part.

Those that want to take part are asked to meet at West Avenue Car Park at 12.00pm, where the walk will begin down to the beach.

Maureen Dunn is one of the organisers of the event, she said:

“We do two of these a year, in June and October and the one in June was the biggest Westie Walk in the UK, with 166 Westies. 

People come from all over the country and a lot spend the weekend in Filey or on the surrounding campsites. 

Some even come for a week, people that have never been to Filey before have come and absolutely loved it and are wanting to come more and more.

So it’s bringing tourism in as well.”

North Yorkshire drivers Charlie Payne and Steve Bannister secured a brace of historic hat-tricks with home victories in the two main sections of the Trackrod Rally which finished in Filey on Saturday afternoon.

Both repeated their successes in 2015 and 2016 with Ripon Dairy owner Payne winning the less restricted Trackrod Forest Stages in a Ford Fiesta WRC and Bannister – the first driver to win the event three times back in the eighties – taking the Historic Cup for vehicles built prior to 1986.

Payne snatched victory by the second closest margin the event’s history -a mere two-tenths of a second – from Co Durham’s newly crowned RAVENOL BTRDA Champion Stephen Petch, after over 45 miles of competitive rallying.

There was just seven second between them going into the final Dalby stage but, despite a titanic effort from Petch, who has also taken the MAXXIS MSA English title, Payne emerged with his nose in front.

A total of 96 of the 130 cars which started the event made it through the forests to be greeted back to the finish along Filey sea-front by the town’s mayor and mayoress and a bumper contingent of spectators.

A large-scale search and rescue exercise took place in Filey over the weekend

Emergency services from North Yorkshire Police, HM Coastguard, Filey RNLI and Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team, took part in a large missing person search scenario.

It means that there will be an increased emergency services presence in Filey this morning.

Senior Coastal operations Manager Officer Matthew Atkinson said:

“The emergency services all need to train together so we are prepared for the worst should it happen, Sunday is an excellent opportunity to test the operational response of all the services involved.

Please don’t be alarmed at the number of emergency services personnel in the area and stay away from any cliff edges. 

Please continue if you see anyone in difficulty or anything suspicious to dial 999 as normal.”

Yorkshire drivers are set to feature prominently in the Filey based Trackrod Rally at the end of the month.

Newly crowned RAVENOL British Trial and Rally Drivers Association Champion Stephen Petch is preparing to test himself against the renowned North York Moors forest stages and his local rival Charlie Payne when contesting the Trackrod Rally Yorkshire on September 29th/30th.

 

Ripon Dairy owner Payne has won the Trackrod Forest Stages Rally, which runs throughout Saturday, for the past two years and has his eyes set on a straight hat-trick – achieved only once previously on the event, by Chris Mellors between 1994 and 1996.

The Forest Stages event runs parallel to the Trackrod Historic Cup, for the eye-catching rally cars of yesteryear, which begins Friday evening and forms the final round of the Mintex MSA British Historic Championship, where another epic battle for supremacy is expected.

In total around 150 vehicles to take to the forests near Pickering to tackle five different stages, with the fast and furious Dalby test being run twice, as it kicks-off proceedings in spectacular fashion, in total darkness, on Friday night for the Historic competitors.

Petch’s success in the BTRDA Championship comes exactly 25 years after his father Steve, who starts 10 cars further back in another, slightly lower specification Fiesta S2000, took the crown behind the wheel of a Subaru Impreza.

Last year Petch finished just 22.8 seconds behind Payne’s similar Fiesta, while 12 months before that he was again right up his North Yorkshire rival’s exhaust pipe entering the penultimate stage when he was forced out by mechanical failure.

It’s Recycle Week on the Yorkshire Coast, with Filey residents urged to recycle more items from their bathrooms.

In the East Riding, waste and recycling officers will be out and about in various towns, including Filey, for Recycling Week which runs from today (Monday 25 September) until Sunday.

The awareness week, which is in its 14th year, promotes household recycling and advises residents how to reduce waste in their home.

Officers will be parking their recycling trailer at each location and will be on hand to speak to anyone about waste and recycling issues, answer their questions and take requests for bins and kitchen caddies.

North Yorkshire County Council is also promoting the awareness week and encouraging residents to rethink their bathroom regime.

Research by New recycle Now has found only 52% of bathroom items go in the recycling bin in the UK homes.

If everyone in North Yorkshire recycled just one more deodorant spray, it would save enough energy to power a typical primary school for eight weeks.

There were gold awards given across the North Yorkshire coast in the recent ‘Yorkshire in Bloom.’

The most notable award was for Filey, who claimed gold in Coastal Towns with a population of under 12,000.

There were plenty of awards for the Yorkshire Coast in the Open Spaces Category. Friends of Filey Parks were awarded Platinum whilst there were gold awards for Pannett park in Whitby, Friends of Dean Road & Manor Road Cemeteries in Scarborough, Friends of South Cliff Gardens in Scarborough and Peasholm Park Friends in Scarborough.

 

Marion Wright is the Chairman of the Filey in Bloom Group. She said:

“There’s an awful lot of people that Filey gets left out, that the Scarborough Borough doesn’t give enough to Filey.

But we feel it’s very, very important that we keep going and visitors always say to us what a lovely town we have and how nice and tidy it is. 

We try to keep the town the best we can and we’re always looking for people to help us with extra bits of work.

They can come along and do a few hours work. We’re all getting older you see, sow e need other people to help out.”

Filey Lions’ annual 10k Beach Run took place yesterday, on Sunday the 3rd of September.

It begins at the Country Car Park in Filey, with an 11.00am start. It was set up by nine years ago by Sam Cross who is the President of Filey Lions Club, all with the intention of boosting Filey’s tourism appeal.

When asked about the event Sam said:

“Those who took part set off at the country park at 11.00 o’clock this year, running down the ravine, onto the beach, all the way to Hunmanby Gap and then there was a nice surprise at the end where they ran up the hill at the sailing club and got their medals. 

All in all it was a fantastic day. Another reason the runners were so excited to compete was the free beer at the end, courtesy of Wold Top Brewery.”
