New Build

 Fundraising Events in the Village Hall

As grant applications and other sources of funding are being developed and considered, the Fundraising Working Party are planning a new series of events.  These include:

29th March at 3.00 p.m. in the Village Hall, Graham Bell, previously Vicar at Wickham and Pettistree, will give an illustrated  talk about Ernest Shackleton.  Graham has visited the sites and is pleased to return to the Village to tell us about Shackleton’s attempt to cross the Antarctic in 1914, the shipwreck and subsequent events and adventures.

Look out for the Open Garden weekend at Midsummer – see below

The Sconathon is booked for 3rd October,  Will we beat our record of 696 scones?  Will the team from Radio Suffolk keep their promise to officially open the event?  Book the date and join the fun!

The Craft Fair will be on 5th December. A quality event of genuine and affordable crafts with demonstrations. As one visitor said last year “I like this Fair – it’s a proper Craft Fair!”  We’re hoping the origami decorations will return!

And look out for the regular Wickham Market and Area Archive Talks every other month too.   Lots to look forward to so book the dates now!

Working together to get a Hall for All – For further information on the above, please contact Gloria Theobald on 01728 746979.
