Just recently it was Volunteers Week, and Barlby and Osgodby Town Council would like to put on record how much our wonderful and dedicated team of Volunteers contribute to Parish life. Without them the Library would have closed, litter would be left on verges and we wouldn't have regular events at the Library including the Drop in Cafe, the Book Club and liaison with local Schools.

Also deserving a thank you are the Institute Committee and members who work tirelessly to provide events and activities, including the popular Youth Club. Last but not least, deserving a mention are your Town Councillors who give their time to make the Parish a better place to live and work. 


Do your bit to stop plastic waste at source by switching from a single use plastic bottle to a re-useable bottle, then re-fill at places with the re-fill sticker. In Selby this includes cafes, Summit and the Railway Station.

Local businesses and public spaces are also signing up to this project and Barlby Library and Community Hub will have a supply of re-fill bottles available from Tuesday 11th June.

PROVING TO BE VERY POPULAR ! Call in to collect your free bottle.

You can collect a bottle when you swap for an empty single use bottle. All single use bottles that have been swapped will be recycled.
