A long-standing resident of Wing, Cynthia Harris, passed away peacefully in Crown House, Oakham, on the 6th Feb.
An enthusiastic and loyal member of Wing WI and a great supporter of Wing Church, her friends will miss her dry humour and amazing knowledge of football!
Cynthia’s funeral service was held on Thursday 21 February at 11 am in Wing Parish church. Refreshments were available afterwards, kindly arranged by Wing WI, in the village hall.
Rev. Pippa Madgewick was officiating. Donations, in lieu of flowers please, will be shared between Wing Parish Church and The Salvation Army.
Over 70 of her friends attended and the floral tributes from her close friends were perfect for the lovely early spring day when we said goodbye to our dear friend.
After the business part of the meeting our speaker, Brenda Featherstone, and her daughter will be giving a demonstration of Farmhouse Cookery at 8pm in Wing Village Hall Morcott Road, Wing. As a visitor, you are welcome to attend the first part of the too which starts at 7.30pm. Visitors pay £3 for an evening’s entertainment and refreshments – such good value!

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.
Helen Phillips will be speaking on
