We have started two “causes” that are a painless way of raising money for the village that cost you nothing !
If you are buying anything online then if you visit one of these sites first they will donate a small percentage of anything you buy to the Wing Community fund. See here for details.

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.
November draw for the Wing 100 Club.
1st Robert Birch, Wing
2nd Debbie Whight, Wing
3rd Fran Towell, Wing
The December draw will take place after the Christmas Lunch on Sunday 13th December with double prize money!
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.
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.

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.
