The 2022 Annual General Meeting of Wing Village Hall


The 2022 Annual General Meeting of Wing Village Hall will be held at 7pm on Monday 7th February 2022 at Wing Village Hall.  

The agenda will be posted on village notice boards and on the Wing village website https://wingrutland.uk/   The important items of business will include election of the Management Committee for the coming year and receipt of the accounts for last year. 

All residents of Wing aged 18 or over, may attend.

The hall is operating subject to Government Covid-19 Secure guidance. Attendees are invited to take lateral flow tests before attending and villagers are asked not to attend if suffering from coronavirus symptoms.

The Village Hall Committee


Message from Sally Cox:

We invite anyone attending Monday’s village hall meeting to take an LFT beforehand. Please do not attend if you test positive or are experiencing symptoms. Should not be able to attend and wish to share views or information do please let Sally Cox have those before 7pm Monday...

Following on from our communications at the end of last year and in order to get events moving this year, I am working with the Parish Council who is the trustee for the hall, to re-establish a full committee to handle the day to day matters of the hall as well as arranging village events. This year that will be especially important as we have the Queen’s Platinum celebrations. 

As an initial step, I propose holding a meeting at the village hall at 7pm on Monday 17 January for those interested in either taking one of the ‘key’ roles on the committee or forming part of a database of contacts to help with fundraising events.

As an insight for those who have not been involved before, the committee conducts the day to day business of the hall – hiring, maintenance, compliance.

Key roles are the Chair, the Treasurer, Booking Secretary and Hall Manager. Additional roles, if there are sufficient volunteers, are a Minutes Secretary and Vice-Chair.  We currently have these roles filled by volunteers who have stepped up but anyone willing to participate at this level is warmly welcomed and will help those currently acting who may not be available in the longer term.  Meetings tend to take place every 4-6 weeks throughout the year and the AGM will take place shortly.

We will also discuss the possibility of setting up a list of contacts for the social events of the village and those people willing to help out in this capacity.

Anyone interested in hearing about what goes on at the village hall and who may be able to help in one way or another is invited to attend.

Many thanks

Sally Cox

The New Website


As a result of the major changes to the host web service, WordPress.com, I have taken the opportunity to clean up over 10 years of accumulated information about Wing.

All the original material is still there but I have simplified the navigation to make it easier to maintain.

If you find there is a favourite page that you can no longer find then try the Search, the Magnifying Glass icon on the right of the header.

If it is something that you believe that should be more easily available then email me at john@wingonline.com

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.
