Village Parking Problems

Pavement Parking has been a problem in the village for some time.

Causing an obstruction on the pavement can make it impossible for invalid vehicles, pushchairs and children walking to and from school to avoid having to walk on the road. It has recently been reported that tickets have been issued for vehicles obstructing the pavement in Great Smeaton, a situation which could also arise in Appleton Wiske.

Please avoid parking vehicles on the pavement and allow pedestrians and others to pass easily and potentially avoid having to pay a fine for having created a problem for other residents.

AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY HOG ROAST

This year’s Hog Roast on the August Bank Holiday Monday was treated to one of those rare August hot and sunny days. The profusion of umbrellas and gazebos provided plenty of shade whilst the diners enjoyed their lunch.
