TAPP is the Thurton and Ashby (PreSchool Playgroup) Playground Project. The project is seeking to upgrade the playground area at Ashby & Thurton village hall with improvements and many new and exciting facilities.
As mentioned in the last published NEWS section, the Ashby parish council expressed it support for this project that will benefit children and others from the local community including those from Ashby St Mary.
Ashby Tappers
The Ashby Tappers are a group comprising two Ashby St Mary parish councillors and local cycling enthusiasts aiming to fundraise towards the project. The Ashby Tappers are due to enter the Norwich 50 (mile) event being held on 3rd June starting outside the Forum in Norwich and ending in the grounds of Norwich Cathredral. The group's intention is to seek donations in aid of TAPP via a JustGiving page.

2. When the speedtest page opens, click only on 'Begin Test'. (Suggestion - ignore any other messages inviting you to do a computer check or other function)
