Activities in the Village Hall

Accommodation wanted August 18th – 26th for Movement Workshop

Stewart Hamblin, who many of you know, is running an International Movement Workshop August 19 – 26 in Wing Village Hall and he will be using the Hall for the whole week. There are people coming from Europe and the USA such is his skill. The people are a mixture of therapists and patients. The participants have arranged their own accommodation around the county but one therapist, from Germany, has failed to find anywhere for her and her partner. She has asked Stewart if anyone has a room available during that week. They just need somewhere to sleep and are not expecting any meals.

Important Meeting at the Village Hall on Wednesday 17th at 7pm to consider a major change in the way the money is collected for the maintenance and repair of the village hall is used.

The Parish Council have not posted any notices anywhere in the village informing the residents of this but it is scheduled.

The Parish Council, as Trustee of the Charity Wing Community Centre (Wing Village Hall) wishes to seek the approval of Wing’s community to extend the Scheme governing the Charity to enable the Village Hall Management Committee to spend monies raised in the future, in excess of that required to maintain and develop the Village Hall, on activities of wider benefit to the community.

The Charity was originally established to established to ring-fence the funds raised for the benefit of the village hall ONLY, to ensure it was kept to a high standard. At present the trust document restricts how monies raised can be spent.

If the village residents wish to agree to this change this will require a change to the Charity Commission Objectives.

The proposed change could release the constraints put upon the Parish Council by the originators of the Charity some 34 years ago to prevent the Parish Council using the funds for anything other than the maintenance and repair of the Village Hall.

The residents have for 34 years used the Village Hall as a base for fundraising for ANY good cause without let or hindrance. Please come along to hear how the proposed changes could work.


It is important that residents are fully informed about the impact these changes could have.

All are Welcome and Encouraged to attend.
