This is a reminder that the next Welbury Coffee Morning will be held this Thursday (27th June) from 11.00-12.00 in the Village Hall, everyone is welcome for a tea/coffee, and a chat with some homemade scones/cake.

Also, the next Crafty Coffee session will be this Friday (28th June) from 11.00-12.30. You are very welcome to come along just for the coffee and chat if you don’t fancy the crafty element. The group is currently knitting squares to make into blankets for hospital patients but you can also come along with any type of crafty activity. This group meets on the 2nd and 3rd Fridays of each month, although there will be no meeting on Friday 12th July.

Best wishes,



HI Ken

I have a few sheets of paper for printing photographs – size A4 . I shan’t use it, and would be happy to give it someone who will.

Would you be kind enough to forward this email to your news circulation, to find a user?

If anyone would like the paper, I’ll give it to the first person who gets back to me. (helenofwiske)

Thank you

Helen Johnson



Thursday 6th June 2024 marks the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day landings on the Normanby beaches that began the liberation of Europe and led to the end of the Second World War.

There will be a Pie and Pea Supper in Appleton Wiske Village Hall, followed by the lighting of a Beacon on the Sports Field later in the evening.

Full details will be posted on the Noticeboards. If you wish to take part in the Supper you must register with Jackie in the Post Office and pay £5 per head in advance by the 31st May.

Appleton Recreation Association

Appleton Recreation Association

Do you enjoy using the playing field or the children’s recreation area, mugga, skate park or even the tennis courts?

It is the ARA who are responsible for all these areas including the upkeep, grass cutting etc. We pay for all of these areas through the 200 club, each of the numbers cost just £20 for the year and we do 4 draws per year.

As we now have 20 spare numbers we are looking for some new members who would like the opportunity to win £250 four times a year and at the Xmas draw the 1st prize is £500

Please come and speak with Jackie in the village shop to choose your number.

Without the support of the whole village we could lose all these fantastic facilities.

Village Library

A  good team effort has produced a temporary library  in the Bus Shelter.

Especial thanks to Angela Sellars for sorting the books and stocking the shelves.

Please use the facility but please do bear in mind that it should not become a dump for books that should really be recycled!

Its success will depend upon us all playing our part and respecting the very simple instructions displayed on site.

We hope to make it a permanent feature. The only stipulation from Broadacres, who own the Bus Shelter, is that we will have to dismantle it if the Bus Service is restored. As it is over 30 years since we had the last bus I think it will be safe.

There is a wide cross section, including children’s books and puzzles etc, on offer.

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.
