Despite the, not entirely unexpected, unkind Bank Holiday weather the Wing Summer Fest was a success, thanks to the army of volunteers that moved the event under cover at the last minute using the Village Hall, the Church, Townsend House and other covered areas. The dog show went ahead undaunted by the rain and was enjoyed by the suitably skinned canine participants.
A special thanks to Sally Cox, Sarah O’Boyle and Lindsay O’Conner who bore the brunt of the organizing ( and reorganizing! ) load but thanks to everyone who made it possible.
For many years Wing has been supporting a charity in Africa, the activities of which include running an orphanage and providing much needed medical assistance. Most recently we sent a cheque for £565 representing special church collections for charity, donations from carol singing around the village and other village events.
Local charities are supported with payments to Rutland Air Ambulance, Ridlington Hospice, British Legion and a local Emergency Medical Care charity. The generosity of folk in Wing never ceases to amaze me.
At a time when certain charities have attracted negative press, I thought villagers might like to know more about where their generous donations have gone and how they have helped improve lives. This particular charity is remarkable in that it has no overheads of any sort in the UK from where it is run.
There is a special all ages service for Mothering Sunday tomorrow at 9.30am when everyone will be welcome to come and celebrate their Mum (parents and family too!) with a small posy to be presented to all the ladies.
Saturday 25th November 10.30am to 12

Hi all. Carol singing around the village will be on Thursday 21st December. Everyone welcome regardless of ability – enthusiasm and Christmas spirit are all you need. 🎶. Start ( and finish) at the King’s Arms pub.
A reminder for this weekend’s event at VH. Plenty of Spanish tapas treats to get you in the mood for a quiz and silent auction.
The funeral of Sheila Casey will take place at Kettering Crematorium on Monday, 23rd October ( family only ) followed by a service in the church in Wing at 2:30pm where all her friends are invited to say farewell to a much-loved resident of the village.
