We don’t have to put up with this!

Some of us are taking a bin bag on our walks and picking this crap up but we shouldn’t have to. If you see the perpetrators get their numbers and report them!

The London Marathon – Sunday 28th April 2019

An Invitation from Gloria Whight

On May 10th 2003 I did The Moonwalk in London, and the Village generously sponsored me during my training by doing a village moonwalk around the Buttonhole.

This year I am asking you to sponsor Siobhan Reilly, a young Wing resident, who is currently training to take part in The London Marathon for her chosen Charity – The Woodland Trust.

I am, therefore, inviting and challenging you to take part in an aMAZEing Mini-Marathon on Saturday 13th April, starting at 10.30a.m. around the Buttonhole from the Maze and finishing there for a mini-brunch. Siobhan will be joining you – the walkers, runners, cyclists, dog walkers, etc. – as part of her training.

The Woodland Trust is the U.K.’s largest Conservation Charity, which protects, creates and restores the U.K.’s woodland for the benefit of people and wildlife

Cynthia with cakeA long-standing resident of Wing, Cynthia Harris, passed away peacefully in Crown House, Oakham, on the 6th Feb.

An enthusiastic and loyal member of Wing WI and a great supporter of Wing Church, her friends will miss her dry humour and amazing knowledge of football!

Cynthia’s funeral service was held on Thursday 21 February at 11 am in Wing Parish church. Refreshments were available afterwards, kindly arranged by Wing WI, in the village hall.

Rev. Pippa Madgewick was officiating. Donations, in lieu of flowers please, will be shared between Wing Parish Church and The Salvation Army.

Over 70 of her friends attended and the floral tributes from her close friends were perfect for the lovely early spring day when we said goodbye to our dear friend.



Wing Village Mysteries: Part 1

David Seviour is producing a series of documents of Wing Village Mysteries that have been surfaced by his research for the Neighbourhood Plan.

This one is done in such a way as to demonstrate how residents can help, sometimes inadvertently, to solve historic mysteries that other local historical writers had failed to solve or document.

The first one is here but you can always find them under The Village menu item.

From the Heart of Rutland
