Wing Senior’s Lunch


Sunday December 8th 12.30 for 1pm.

We are pleased to be holding the Seniors lunch once again in the Village Hall for those over 65. Sara Mcallister is kindly cooking a Christmas dinner – ‘turkey with all the trimmings’ and there will be a sing-along after the meal.

This is a free event but donations are welcome to contribute towards the cost. There will also be a raffle (£1 a ticket).

Please add your name to the list in the village hall (together with food choices) or let Lynne Bywater (Lyn225@hotmail.co.uk) or Judith Oakley (quilt9@gmail.com) know that you would like to attend by November 30th.

New Year’s Eve


New Year’s Eve

Saturday, 31st December, 9 pm – 12.30 am Wing Village Hall

Disco evening to see in the New Year – THE MORE THE MERRIER

Why not join village friends and acquaintances and bring friends? From 9pm onwards for an evening of nostalgic music of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

We’d like several volunteers with a penchant for DJ’ing to put together a playlist each of their favourite party music which they will then DJ to the assembled part-goers – no getting off lightly- YOU will be DJ’ing YOUR choices. There will be some snacks available for those that feel they didn’t have enough dinner before they came and then a glass of fizz to see in the New Year.

We shall have a fun countdown to midnight and, weather permitting, a conga round the car park with our own outdoor rendering of Auld Lang Syne.

Tickets will be a nominal £5 to cover snacks and a glass of midnight fizz. There will be a paying bar (last orders at 10.55!). Contact Lynne (lyn225@hotmail.co.uk) or Helen (cullens135@gmail.com) as soon as possible to volunteer to DJ (before we contact you!), help and/or to reserve tickets.

New Year’s Day

A gentle 2-5 mile walk starting from Wing Village Hall followed by butties and mulled wine


Led by Paul Kitson (of “walks 100 miles at a time”, Kitson)


We’ll be returning to the Village Hall at the end of the walk for bacon butties (egg for veggies), coffee, tea and beer/mulled wine. For those that prefer not to walk you will be very welcome at the Hall to join in afterwards and indeed to volunteer to help with food and drinks. Vouchers for a butty and drink £5per person (£2.50 for under 18’s).

Vouchers should be purchased in advance for food and drink so that we can gauge numbers from Lynne (lyn225@hotmail.co.uk) or Helen (cullens135@gmail.com). Volunteers please also contact Lynne or Helen.
Do bring your dogs on the walk but please note that dogs are not permitted in the Village Hall unless they are Assistance Dogs.

Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale


Stamford Shoestring’s next production is:

BLUE STOCKINGS

by JESSICA SWALE

A pre-Christmas treat!

Don’t miss this chance to see what promises to be a highly entertaining and thought- provoking evening. 

Shakespeare’s Globe was packed to the rafters when Blue Stockings was first produced in 2013. Currently it is performed by theatre companies up and down the country and is hugely popular.

Girton College, Cambridge, was one of the first colleges in Britain to admit women.

The year is 1896 and Jessica Swale’s lively play tells the story of Tess Moffat and a group of ‘first-years’ determined to win the right to a degree. Their story is followed over one tumultuous year as they encounter the many hurdles in their way – the class divide, misogyny, and the university opposition – not to mention the distractions of love. Finally, the whole issue is put to the vote…

Love or knowledge: which would you choose?

In performance at the Stamford Arts Centre Theatre from:

Tues 3-Sat 7 December 7.45pm – tickets £10 (£8)

Box Office: 01780 763203 www.stamfordartscentre.com (An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books)
