Have you been sold or offered these stolen rings?
Police are appealing for witnesses who may have been sold the pictured rings or seen them for sale recently.
This is in relation to a theft of two rings of great sentimental value that have been stolen from a vulnerable victim who resides in a care home in the Hambleton District.
The first is a wishbone type ring in a yellow metal.
The second is a diamond cluster ring. These are both items of significant sentimental value.
We are requesting the public’s assistance to help and identify if they have seen either of these rings for sale on social media or local selling sites in the last few weeks.
Anyone with information that could assist the investigation should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, select option 2, and ask for Charlotte Lancaster. You can also email charlotte.lancaster.
If you wish to remain anonymous, you can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
Please quote the North Yorkshire Police reference number 12220079140.

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.
