This is a stylish, humorous and very entertaining portrayal of a style of music originally pioneered by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris – performed by three talented musicians on acoustic guitar, violin and double bass. Numbers include “It had to be you’, “Fascinating rhythm”, “Lady Be Good”, “Sweet Georgia Brown” and many others! Please book early to secure your ticket for what will be another popular show.
You are invited to watch a free performance of ‘In the Net’ by the AlterEgo Theatre Group which your child (years 3 & 4) may also be watching through their school (subject to availability). This production is part of ongoing work by the police, councils, NHS and others, who are continuing to work hand-in-hand to support children to stay safe online and to tackle Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE).
The internet is an amazing tool which opens the door on a global scale to social and learning opportunities. Most children access the internet from a very early age including via games consoles, and we must therefore teach children how to stay safe online in the same way that we teach them to cross the road.
‘In the Net’ is a fun and entertaining pantomime which raises the profile of internet safety and cyber-bullying. The play has been shown to hundreds of children around the UK and was also shown to a sample of local primary schools in February 2017. It was very positively received. ‘In the Net’ is designed to introduce and explore concepts such as:
- Safe internet use
- Keeping personal information safe
- The effects of cyber-bullying on others
- What to do if you are being cyber-bullied
- What to do when you get that ‘Uh-Oh!’ feeling
- What to do if you have questions or concerns
- Two evening performances have been secured for parents and carers only, you can book directly via the links below, please book early to avoid disappointment. The performance will be followed by a brief presentation by local authority safeguarding lead(s).

The PowerPoint presentation given by Bryan Spooner concerning proposed changes to the Wing Community Charity at the Wing Open Meeting is here.
A PDF version is available for those who do not have PowerPoint.
For your reference, copy of current Trust Deed document is here.
The Parish Council wish to change the Wing Community Charity Governance document the allow the money collected by the Village Hall Committee to be used for anything the Parish Council deem to benefit the village.
BUT the villagers who set up the Charity specifically insert words to safeguard the money so it would not be used for anything other than the repair and maintenance of the Village Hall. This smart move has enabled us to keep the Village Hall in good condition when village halls over the country are falling into disrepair.
This has not prevented the Hall from being used for other fundraising functions provided it is made clear that the fundraising PROVIDING it is made clear that the funds would not go towards the upkeep of the hall. The organizer just hires the hall for the length of time required.
This has worked without problems for 30+ years.
If the safeguard is removed the money for repair and maintenance could be taken for any purpose that the Parish Council see fit, supplementing the Precept, the tax that is levied on every resident and which they should work within… and the hall will suffer.
We have some exciting sessions lined up for the next couple of months, see below.
You are also more than welcome to come along and bring whatever you may be working on for example crocheting or painting. We also have various games if you don’t fancy being creative.

|Police are warning the public to be alert to a recent scam where people are approached by fake police officers and encouraged to take part in an undercover operation
Since November last year, Leicestershire Police has received eight reports of a scam of this nature and are warning the public to prevent further people falling victim to this crime.
The circumstances are that criminals are contacting members of the public, mainly by phone, claiming to be from the police or their bank’s fraud team. The criminal goes on to claim they are investigating a fraud at a local bank where bank staff are involved with issuing fake bank notes and asks the victim for their help.
As part of the ongoing police investigation, the victim is asked to visit the same branch and withdraw a large amount of money from their own account, usually thousands of pounds, and hand this over to the police to be tested.
The victim is assured that they will have the money returned to their bank account however this never happens and the criminal gets away with the cash. The victim is told not to tell the bank the reasons around withdrawing the large sum if questioned, suspecting the cashier is only asking as they are in on the scam.
Paul Wenlock, from the Force’s economic crime unit, said: “This is a scam which seems to be increasing, not just in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland but elsewhere across the country.
“The victim may feel that they are doing a public service by helping the police and for some it may seem exciting to part of an undercover operation, but this is not the case and it’s simply a thief’s way of enticing a victim so they can steal their money.
“It’s important that those who are elderly or vulnerable who often fall prey to such type of scams are aware so we would encourage the public to share this message and help us prevent further victims of this crime.
Paul Wenlock added: “Police or banks will never ask anyone to take part in a fraud operation or withdraw or transfer money. Please be wary of any contact made from someone claiming to be from the police asking you to transfer money. If you are suspicious or concerned, please hang up the phone and contact either police, Action Fraud or your local bank.”
Anyone who has been contacted in similar circumstances or has any information about the offences is asked to contact 101.
