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.
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.
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.
Who said that Appleton Wiske was stuck in a time warp? This cyclist appears to have been delayed for some time before reaching the centre of the village!
Jackie McReddie is now running the Post Office in the Village. After a break in the service, it is now going well. Thankfully we again have a service that we need in the village.
Yvonne Hills and Jackie McReddie took over the Management of the Village Shop with Tony Lawson is retiring. Continue reading “Appleton Wiske Post Office and Village Shop”
