Parish Council Vacancy

Following Claire Gill’s resignation as a Parish Councillor, the Parish Council will be seeking to fill the vacancy. Information about becoming a Parish Councillor and how to make an application to fill the vacancy is available from the clerk at clerk@appletonwiske.com

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.

Bonfire Night – 9th November

Pre-School will again be organising the bonfire and fireworks evening on the recreation field. The bonfire will be lit at 5:45 p.m. with fireworks to follow at 6:15 p.m. Mulled Wine, Cakes, Hot Chocolate, Soup, Hot Dogs and Tea/Coffee/Juice will be served and there will be a collection to help meet the cost of the event.

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.

 

Village Events

CHILDREN FROM BELARUS

On Thursday 4th July 2019, we welcomed a group of children from Belarus to our school. They had a fabulous time with our Year 5 and 6 children, taking part in lots of fun activities. A big thank you to Mrs Gudger for running the event . Our pupils were outstanding throughout and enjoyed the experience.

WILDLIFE AREA GRAND OPENING, SPORTS DAY AND SUMMER FAIR on Thursday 27th June 2019

Many thanks for the support last Thursday. Our Wildlife Area is now officially open and I would just like to thank all of our volunteers again for everything they have done for our school. Our Sports Day went well and the children were in fine form, supporting each other and competing for their teams – congratulations to the Yellow Team for winning the cup! Thank you to all the parents, grandparents and friends who helped to bring the chairs back into school – this was very much appreciated by all the staff. Finally, a massive thank you to our Year 5/6 pupils and the Friends of the School for putting on a great Summer Fair. We raised £420 which is a fantastic amount and will be put to good use.
