Please be aware that Rutland County Council will never call you out of the blue to ask for your bank details.

If you do get a call from someone claiming to work for the Council and asking for bank details you should hang up straight away – do not give out any personal information.

Neighbourhood Plan Questionnaire


Dear all

The Wing Neighbourhood Plan questionnaire will be distributed in the next few days by one of your neighbours. They will try to see you in person but if you are not at home on a couple of occasions they will post it through the door. We have questionnaires for all adults living in the parish of Wing and also one for 17-year-olds and under there is no minimum age.

Wing really needs your views so I hope you can find the time to fill it in and encourage the youngsters in the house also to do so.

The completed questionnaires can either be collected by your distributor or posted into boxes in the church porch or village hall. There will be a few extra copies in the village hall if you need more.

Many thanks

Nicky Lyttelton – Chair of the Wing parish neighbourhood plan group

A History of Wing Village and Its Setting 1066 – 2018


From David Seviour:

Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the book and thank you to everyone who braved the elements on Sunday morning to attend the presentation and in many cases also purchasing a copy of the book. I’ve now completed all the pre-ordered deliveries (bar one) and fundraising for the ‘Church Fabric Fund’ and the ‘Village Hall Trust Community Fund’ from this source as a book launch event has gone well. No doubt the Festival Committee will announce financial outcomes shortly.

Remember, if you have purchased the book you have my e-mail address on its end page and I welcome any constructive feedback on its contents or any useful and related further information.

Conversations.

I’ve had a number of interesting conversations since the event and will be following up with ‘A Wing Listed Buildings Directory’ hopefully by the end of November, as well as further opportunities to buy the history book.

After the presentation, I had one very brief conversation about my comments on there likely being a post mill on the Glaston Road from an early Medieval date despite local history references only confirming that from 1634. I referred to evidence that I had read after the book had gone to print, in relation to land transactions which cited a mill in Wenge by 1209. I didn’t catch the person’s name, but he suggested that this date was too early for Windmills in England and that the reference therefore likely referred to a watermill in the valley. After the conversation I did some further checking and the experts as at 2016 say that there is good evidence of windmills (‘Molendina ad ventum’) having been introduced into England as follows; Dunwich 1199, Willingham near Beccles in Suffolk 1202, Henham in Essex 1202, Leyton Buzzard 1212, and significantly Grimsby in Lincolnshire in 1201.

Best Wishes to you all

David Seviour
