Stamford Arts Centre, Tuesday 4th – Saturday 8th June at 7.45pm

and outdoors at Browne’s Hospital, Stamford at 2pm on Sunday 23rd June

  A cast of 40 actors and musicians tell this remarkable true story of a 17th Century Derbyshire village stricken with plague through the arrival of an infected box of clothing from London. The villagers make a heroic decision, persuaded by the present and former Rectors, to prevent its spread by remaining within the village at the certain risk of their own lives.

An aMAZEing Mini-Marathon on Saturday 13th April, starting at 10.30a.m. from the Maze


This went exceptionally well and £300 was raised – well done to Gloria and Dennis for arranging and to all who took part to make it such a successful event.

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. 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.

Please support this event.

We suggest a minimum donation of £5, please.

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

What Would You Do?


wwydnhsThe Government is investing an extra £20 billion a year in the NHS. Help your local NHS invest in the right support by sharing your ideas and experiences. #WhatWouldYouDo

 

What would you do to improve local health services?

With growing pressure on the NHS – an ageing population, more people living with long-term conditions, and lifestyle choices affecting people’s health – changes are needed to make sure everybody gets the support they need. The NHS has produced a ten-year plan, setting out all of the things it wants health services to do better for people across the country. Now your local NHS needs to hear from you about what those changes should look like in your community.

 

Share your views and help make care better. There are two public surveys to capture your views and you can fill in one or both of them.

 

Survey 1 – What would you do to give people more control of their care?

 

Tell us what your local NHS can do to help you and your community stay well and provide better support. Please complete the survey here.

 

Survey 2 – What would you do to give people better support?

 

The Long Term Plan sets out what the NHS wants to do better, including providing better support for people with cancer, mental health conditions, heart and lung diseases, long-term conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis, learning disabilities, autism, and for people as they get older and experience conditions such as dementia.

 

Your local NHS needs to hear from you about how it can provide better care for people living with these conditions. Please complete the survey here.

Where do I look for local news on the internet?


We have several sites where you can find Wing news on the internet.

We use “appropriate technology” to reach the widest audience.

The “master site” is the Wing Community website wingrutland.uk

All articles that are posted to the Wing Community website are also automatically posted to the Facebook page “Wing Community” and Twitter “@wingrutlanduk” but they are removed periodically by Facebook and Twitter.


There is also a local neighbourhood site Nextdoor.

(There is also a closed Facebook “Wing Community Group” but that is not used very much now we have Nextdoor.)

Nextdoor is like a simple Facebook with few functions other than posting and replying to messages, which as also sent to your email address. But it is the most heavily used of all the message facilities because it is so simple and, unlike the Wing Community website, any member can post or send a private message to anyone else in their neighbourhood.

You can get more details here , everything you wanted to know but never dared ask!


But remember there is always the Rutland Water Beneface Magazine, aka the Parish Mag, for those residents who don’t have nor don’t want to have the internet or just want to savour the news in printed form.

All these sources are edited by the same staff – me.
