Organisation Name Description
Agida African Arts

We are an experienced organisation of educators and experts in our field, delivering African workshops and master classes in educational, corporate and cultural events. As a company, we work with many different clients, providing experienced and qualified African Practitioners.
Whenever possible Karim delivers all workshops but due to the popularity and fast growth of our company, Karim can quickly become fully booked. For this reason, our team of practitioners, already masters in their field in music, art, drama and dance, have trained with us so they provide the high standard and quality we pride ourselves on at Agida African Arts. We embrace and believe in professional development and our practitioners are expected to train with us on a regular basis, so we evaluate and grow as a company, to meet the full needs of our clients.
Once you make a booking we provide a full introduction in writing, about your practitioner, including their biography, their expertise, qualifications and experience.
All our practitioners are African, they work in their traditional dress and share their culture with joy.
Our administration staff are passionate about African Arts and support our clients with enthusiasm from the initial contact through to completion, always ready to engage in conversation, sharing information about AAA.
We are proud to be known as a company who care about those we work with and what we do.

Cricket has been played at Appleton’s Lyons Lane ground since the early 1900’s. Appleton Cricket Club was formed in 1976 from an amalgamation of cricket teams from Radiation, a local works team, and Winwick, who formerly played in the grounds of the hospital. Appleton replaced Winwick in the Cheshire Cricket Association, fielding two league teams in the first and second divisions.

In 1996 the club secured the purchase of their ground with assistance from the National Lottery Grant Scheme, and in 2006 Appleton proudly opened their new Pavilion.

The club run teams for men, women, boys and girls. The club's facilities have also been used for county training/county disabled team training in recent seasons.

Appleton District Trefoil Guild

A Trefoil Guild is a branch of Girlguiding and its members agree to support the guiding ethos - including the pledge to help other people. Many members pass on their skills and knowledge to local guiding units, from helping Brownies work towards a badge to preparing older girls for a camping adventure. Many members are unit leaders or helpers in Girlguiding units.

But it’s not all about the girls - there are plenty of opportunities for members to try something new, take on a new personal challenge and escape the daily routine. The best thing is that what you do is up to you!

Across the UK, there are over 1,100 Trefoil Guilds with over 20,000 members - some meet every week, others less frequently, perhaps in the evening or in the afternoon.
