New Bench at the playground

Earlier this year we replaced some equipment at the playground with the help of a grant from Selby District Council (below). With Selby's agreement we have been able to put some unspent grant funding towards the cost of a replacement bench overlooking the play area.

The previous concrete bench was sadly vandalised at the beginning of 2022. This new bench is made of 100% recyclable meterials and will hopefully serve the village for many years.

Replacement for the 408/409 Bus Service

Arriva have announced the withdrawal of the 408/409 bus service with effect from 02/10/22. This service ran though the Smeatons on a route between Pontefract and Doncaster. Following negotiations between North Yorkshire County Councillor John McCartney and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority a new service will operate from 03/10/22.


NB: The new service does not go to Doncaster, it is a circular route starting and finishing in Pontefract. 

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Our sincere condolences to all members of the Royal Family.
