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.
The annual Bonfire and Fireworks display was held on the village playing field, organised by Pre-School.
