Post Office -- There is no Post Office in the village. The main Post Offices are in Northallerton (7 miles) and Stokesley. The nearest local ones are at Appleton Wiske (5 miles, currently not open, with a shop open daily), in the Blue Bell pub at Ingleby Cross (2 miles, Mon/Tues/Wed a.m.) and West Rounton (3 miles).
Newspapers -- A group of villagers join together to collect our own newspapers from Appleton Wiske Shop and then deliver them to the village hall for individual collection. Contact David Allan (01609 882581) for details of joining the rota. Each person collects twice or thrice a month.
News and Views - This is a monthly newsletter produced by the church community, and delivered in the village for a £5 annual subscription (contact Kate on 01609 882776). It includes news of all (not only church) activities for the coming month in East Harlsey, Ingleby Arncliffe and Osmotherley. The Editor is Lizz Hepple who can be contacted by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fish and Chips -- Every Tuesday about 7.00 pm, a van stops at the Village Hall and again opposite Harlsey Hall gates.
Milk -- Delivered daily by Ian Garbutt, telephone 01642 711655.
Wet fish (frozen) -- Delivered every six weeks. Telephone Mick on 01429 235604 or e-mail email@example.com
Library -- The main libraries are Northallerton (01609 533832) and Stokesley (01609 533461). For opening hours go to the libraries website. You can renew or order library books on this site. There is no travelling van.
Environmental Services -- Rubbish collections and recycling are via wheelie bins on a Monday from 7am. One week is household waste (black bin); and the next week is garden waste (green bin) plus waste paper, plastics and cans (blue topped bin) and glass (blue box). The main Recycling Centre which takes a very wide variety of rubbish is in Yafforth Road, Northallerton (not open on Wednesdays).
About twice a year the Parish Council organises for the roadsides to be swept: when this is about to happen you will get a note asking you to move your car from the roadside to make the job more effective. Please help by doing this.
They also organise a bi-annual Litter Pick around the parish roads: anyone can join this activity.
