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.
The lights on the Village Christmas Tree, on the village green outside the shop, were lit on Friday 6th December. The popular carol singing, was followed by mince pies and mulled wine.
The annual Bonfire and Fireworks display was held on the village playing field, organised by Pre-School.
The next bulk order for heating oil will close on Friday 14th May. Those who are already members of the buying group will receive an email closer to the date with an invitation to place an order for delivery during the following 2 weeks. Anyone wishing to join the group should email firstname.lastname@example.org asking for details on how to join.
The weekly Art and Craft Group meets in the Methodist Church each Monday starting on the 9th September.
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.
