To assist with Youth Work, the Parish Council provides support to the BYP being held on a Friday evening at Broomfields Leisure Centre through covering the costs for the provision of the 4 all-weather pitches for 2 hours on Friday evenings.

The Parish Council has donated the sum of £12,000 to assist with the purchase of the POD.

The history...

The first Annual Ward Meeting for Appleton took place on the 9th March 1896 at the Appleton Thorn School Room and seven names were elected from the eight nominations.  The Parish Council later took occupation of the Appleton Parish Hall on Dudlow Green Road on 17 July 1968 and this is still the base for its monthly meetings (apart from August) and any extra committee meetings.
