New Editor Required


The Editor of this website plans to retire in 2022, due to ill health, and unless someone takes over it will cease.

Due to the numbers of villagers, over 250, that use Nextdoor it is possible for Nextdoor, a free commercial service, to take over the role, but Nextdoor is funded by ads and is restricted to south Rutland.

Anyone that wants to take over this community website can contact the current editor john@wingonline.com

This website wingrutland.uk has provided a service to the village for over 10 years and has the history of this time captured in articles and photos. If no one takes it over it will be archived on some, as yet defined, site but will not be lost.

It has been visited over 100,000 times from over 90 countries, often by ex-residents of the village.
