Support Wing by using Easyfundraising


We need your help. Turn Black Friday into Give Back Friday!

This Friday (27th November) shops across the uk will be holding the biggest sales of the year, meaning it’s the perfect time to pick up party dresses, grab gifts and take advantage of tech bargains.

Don’t forget you can collect free donations for Wing Village Hall every time you shop online thanks to easyfundraising.org.uk.

There are nearly 3,000 shops on board, including John Lewis and Amazon, ready to make a free donation to us – it doesn’t cost you a penny extra.

It’s really simple, all you have to do is:

1. Join – Head to https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/wingvillagehall and sign up for free.
2. Shop – Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first, pick the retailer you want and start shopping.
3. Raise – After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to Wing Village Hall for no extra cost whatsoever!

Thank you for your support this Give Back Friday.

Quiz Night Result


The quiz was attended by 50 people, not as many as other years, but we were competing with a function at Manton on the same night. Refreshments were the usually homemade soups and a selection of bite size desserts.

Winners of the quiz were Tom and Jane Gilmore and Richard and I collectively known as “Batemores”!

There was about ten raffle prizes, so I can’t tell you who got what really, just that it was well supported, as was the bar, which culminated in a final total of £663.00 with all expenses paid.

Thanks to all concerned.

Judith’s Knee Op


Update Monday 16th Nov:

Stitches out. Zimmer walker returned. Walking cane thrown away. Cleared to DRIVE. Surgeon’s grading, “Progress excellent”. But still several weeks of physio.

Update Friday 6th Nov:

She’s home! Surgery went well. She will no doubt tell you all about it when she is less drugged up.



Judith Oakley’s knee was replaced successfully this morning in a 3-hour operation at St Joseph’s Hospital, Bellingham.

The surgeon described it as the worst knee he had seen in 14 years but as it was all replaced there should be no further problems.

She is expected to be home at the end of the week.

Hampton Court Flower Show 5 – 10 July 2016


Hampton Court Flower Show 5 – 10 July 2016
We wonder if sufficient people would be interested in a coach trip from Wing ?
We think the coach and admission would be £55 -£60 (no concession’s)  It will be non-profitmaking venture.
It is a long way ahead, but all we need at present is an expression of interest to see if there is any point getting costings for a coach etc. We would need a firm commitment and 50% deposit in the spring.

If interested in more information,please contact Joanne Beaver  737286 or Judith Leahy 737199, leaving your name and a contact telephone number by 10 January.
