Appleby a big hit inthe Big Apple …

Date: Friday 22nd March 2019

APPLEBY Town Council’s website has been held up by students in New York as an example of how to be good neighbours.

Town clerk Caroline Dodgeon said the power of the internet had been at play in making the transatlantic link to students studying on a safety program in upstate New York.

The pupils’ tutor contacted the town council to say that, having discovered the website www.applebytown.org, the class had found the community links sector very interesting. Miss Dodgeon said: “The power of the internet is fantastic. I’m not sure how many people locally would know that we have a page on our website that provides links to many of the community, arts, education, health, wellbeing and sports groups in Appleby

“I bet the students will be amazed to find out that their project on community and neighbourliness has been covered by our own award-winning community newspaper as well.”
