Vote for Judith Oakley for Wing Parish Council – May 2nd 2019
We are lucky to live in Wing, in a safe and happy community, where young and old intermingle.
I have lived in Wing for nearly 20 years and have been visiting here for over 50 years as my sister, Sheila Casey, ran the village shop and post office. For many years I have spent long periods in the US with my husband John, but continued to organize many lunches and quilt shows in the Village Hall and have raised a lot of money for various charities.
I value the presence of the Village Hall and the preservation of the Parish Church.
I am also the President of the Wing Women’s Institute and I hope that it flourishes for many more years. New members are always welcome!
I was born in Market Harborough and attended the Grammar School, followed by Totley Hall Teacher Training College in Sheffield.
I married John and had two daughters whilst also working as a Home Economics teacher. In my early career I taught in Luton and then in one of the best schools in Hertfordshire. For many years I was on the board of governors at Parmiter’s School and was very involved with the Parents and Teachers Association.
I was very happy to move back to the area and I know that Wing is a very special place. I live in the heart of the village and spend many hours trying to tame my garden, look after my very old dog and participate in village life, especially the coffee mornings, the Feldenkrais classes and quilting at the Village Hall. You can often find me chatting to whoever passes by our house on Top Street, particularly if they have a friendly dog.
