Brighten up your home with cheerful bulbs and raise funds for Wing Church. Beautiful bowls and pots of bulbs planted in the autumn are now ready for sale. The bulb varieties include bright red Alfred Cortot dwarf tulips, blue Muscari also known as grape hyacinth, dwarf iris and crocus and are offered in a range of combinations depending on the size of container.
If you wish to make a purchase, please either take a short detour up the drive of 1 Reeves Lane on your daily walk around the village where they can be viewed outside in plenty of fresh air or contact Jane Peach on email@example.com who can email you photos of your preferred bulbs in different sizes and containers for you to choose what you would like. We are inviting donations of around £3.50 for the 5in pots of bulbs ranging to £15 for larger planted decorative glass bowls and baskets. Payment can be made directly into the church bank account by BACS.
Many thanks for your support
Another reminder that Spring is coming ….
When the snow melts, enjoy a short detour through the Churchyard where the snowdrops should be up and looking wonderful. They will be followed by what is hoped will be a wonderful show of bulbs planted last autumn to enhance the beauty of our village.
Hello. I am on Wing Village Hall Management committee and I want to get a group of volunteers to help to paint walls and doors. The hall is in need of a facelift and it is a good opportunity to do it whilst it is closed.
I hope you can volunteer in your ‘bubble’, or even alone, and I will make sure all Covid rules will be met.
Susie and I would be very happy to play some piano and organ works for the village next Friday. We would suggest everyone has a glass in hand, relax and we will try to provide some relief from yet another encounter with Netflix! It is, of course, free – but if anyone would like to contribute anything, we would suggest the Foodbankas a totally worthy cause in these difficult days – to contribute visit www.rutland.foodbank.org.uk and press the red donate button.
As we enter the third National lockdown the Wing Covid 19 Group wanted to get in touch again and let you know that we are still here, ready and willing to assist you if required.
We still have well-being volunteers providing welfare support, both in terms of supporting in practical and physical ways, and in providing support – someone on the end of the phone to talk to if you need it.
We are encouraging and supporting the excellent ‘good neighbour’ schemes and existing networks that you already have in place, but please be assured that if you need help and do not have any other support in place we are here to help.
As more information comes to us through Rutland County Council and other channels, we will let you know and signpost where this information can be found.
This lockdown has reintroduced shielding for those people who Clinically Extremely vulnerable. Those of you that are shielding probably have your own support in place already. If you don’t, or are shielding for the first time and need some help with shopping etc, please let us know and we will try to help. Those considered to be Extremely Clinically Vulnerable are being written to again by the Government.
Now that we are getting used to the implications of lockdown, we do not intend to reintroduce the prescription collection service within the village, as many pharmacies now offer a free delivery service. However, should you need help with this aspect please get in touch with your well-being volunteer who can help to get this set up for you.
We thank you all for the support you gave to the Christmas Cheer event, which despite the atrocious weather, was still attended by around 100 people of all ages and raised a fantastic £178 towards the Church funds. The village looked amazing with all the lights and Christmas windows – it was obvious that considerable effort had been put in to make beautiful displays.
The Foodbank has also been extremely well supported in the build up to Christmas but is needed now more than ever – please keep on putting your donations in the box in the Church porch. Your support is very much appreciated thank you.
In accordance with the National Guidance, RCC playgrounds (including the Wing Recreational Area) remain open – as does Rutland Water. You may also have noticed that Wing Parish Council has provided a new goal on the recreation ground.
Support for closed businesses – There will be one off grants for those businesses in the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure sectors (up to £9k for each business depending on property size) and there will be an ongoing fortnightly payment for those businesses required to close. RCC are awaiting all the details.
Guidance on the priority for vaccination programme can be found here:-
Several residents were honoured by the High Sheriff of Rutland, High Sheriff of Rutland, Richard Cole, and the Lord Lieutenant, Dr Sarah Furness, by receiving a letter of thanks for all the work they have done since Covid-19 arrived in the country.
However I think that everyone in the village of Wing deserves praise for the way we have shown we are acommunity in these troubled times not just a collection of streets in a rural village.
Everyone has contributed in whatever way they could.
Of course, congratulations to those volunteers who have been recognised for their response by the Lord-Lieutenant and the High Sheriff but there must be a special mention to our own Farm Shop at Wing Hall for their service and support in providing local facilities for the community.
