Wing Seniors Christmas lunch took place today and was enjoyed by all who attended.
Thanks goes to Sara McAllister and Jules who worked before, during and after putting on a wonderful lunch. Thank you both for all the effort and time.
Alongside the helpers Rhiannon Jones – Wing’s own Deliveroo service, Mary Rogers, Helen and Richard Bateman, Chris and Andy Howarth who we borrowed from Ashwell and Judith Oakley, Mary Tulloch, Lyn Walsh and Ros King made the day happen with a smile and Christmas spirit.
Finally a thanks to Sarah O’Boyle for the decorations and Jon Roberts for making sure the hall was nice and warm.
As Bonfire Night approaches please think carefully before setting off any fireworks. There are horses, and also sheep, in the village, not to mention lots of dogs and cats – all of which will be terrified by bangs and whizzes, even if they are not very close to them. This can make horses in particular so frightened that they charge around and damage themselves horribly. There are horses, sheep and other animals very close to all the villages, so please be considerate and lawful.
And please be aware of the dangers to thatched buildings. We here in Wing nearly had an incident last year. It was only the swift action of some residents that prevented a tragedy.
The government need facts and figures before they take any action. Up to now there have been no official figures because no one is collecting and collating the information. This is an official RSPCA initiative to provide government with the information they need.
PLEASE USE IT
Although it may look like a one off survey it can be completed as many times as you need.
We understand that you may want to check it is bona fide before completing so you can find it on the RSPCA website.
Please remember that behind the door you are about to knock on there could be a vulnerable person who is scared to answer the door, maybe a pensioner, a Domestic violence survivor scared it could be their ex, a person with P.T.S.D, someone with dementia or someone who is scared of the outside world. If someone has Halloween decorations up and a pumpkin on the doorstep then go ahead, but leave the unlit, quiet houses alone.
