We aim to make this site a comprehensive guide to the goings on in Appleton and Eaton, enabling residents to be involved more in village life with comprehensive coverage of all the activities and facilities in the villages. We also aim to help residents understand how the villages are run and make it easier to access local services. Individual groups maintain their own pages and help to keep this site alive.
