In this festive season why not take a moment to remember those whose sacrifice enables us to enjoy our lives today.
Please give a thought for the men and women of the village who, over the years, have served our country in a multitude of ways and especially those that sacrificed their lives.
The website Wing Page for Rutland Remembers pays tribute to the men from the village who died in the First World War but let’s not forget all from the village who have served.

Molly Jenkins – former Landlady With Harry at the Cuckoo Inn Wing, died last week and is due to be cremated at Grantham Crematorium on the 22nd of December at 12:30. An amazing woman, she ran the pub with Harry for decades before finally retiring to Whissendine.
Harry passed on a couple of years ago now but Molly remained active very much until the end. As little ago as last month, she was bustling around Oakham appearing to be in fine spirits.

We have started two “causes” that are a painless way of raising money for the village that cost you nothing !
If you are buying anything online then if you visit one of these sites first they will donate a small percentage of anything you buy to the Wing Community fund. See here for details.
