Appleford Community Project

Appleford Community Project (ACP)

The Appleford Community Project (ACP) was set up in the early 2000s with the aim of organising and supporting fun activities in the village, encouraging a sense of community and providing entertainment.

Over the years we have:

  • Planted daffodil bulbs on the recreation ground along the railway side
  • Held Christmas events in the Village Hall and on Church Street with seasonal refreshments/music/singing
  • Held our very successful biennial Village Fete – including the 2019 fete in conjunction with the Railway Group
  • Held an annual fireworks and bonfire event on the recreation ground
  • Held a pig roast and ceilidh, Indian dinners, quiz nights, rounders matches and film nights
  • Organised village trips to gardens and the theatre
  • Last but not least, set up the Appleford Community Orchard at the level crossing, complete with fruit trees and a wildflower meadow.


Any Appleford resident is welcome to join the group and we are always looking for new ideas.

Current steering group is:

Chair – Katherine Andrews
Secretary – Mary Hancock
Treasurer – Clare Cousineau
