special events & LATEST NEWS in wysall...
With both regular weekly activities and a wide range of fabulous special events troughout the year, there's something to do in Wysall for everyone!
Full details of ALL village activities may be found on our WHAT'S ON page or just click on the 'Regular Activities in Wysall' icons further down the page for more information.
Some of you may have noticed that the Parish Council have had to remove the roundabout and seesaw from behind the village hall. Unfortunately these items of play equipment were not installed correctly and a recent inspection noted they could cause a serious accident.
We are also aware that the two goal posts are not in great condition and are cumbersome to move when the grass is mown.
Therefore a decision on whether to repair or replace the play equipment (perhaps with a toddler swing etc) needs to be made.
We are also looking at creating a small wildflower area alongside the public footpath just beyond the play areaThe PC would like to engage the wider village community in these decisions, looking at grants and maybe fund raising. So we would like to ask anyone who has some ideas, or better still would like to be on a playground refurbishment committee, to get in touch with me or one of my fellow Councillors. Contact details can be found on the Parish Councillors page.
Nottingham County Council is asking local residents to inform them at 0115 977 4802 if they are aware of any public footpaths on arable land in the parish that are being obstructed by crops. Senior Rights of Way Officer for the joint partnership, Jane Baines, is anxious to ensure that obstructions do not take place and says they will write to any farmers who do not heed requests to rectify the position where blockages are allowed to occur. The Nottingham County Council says that where obstructions do occur farmers will be asked to remove them or the County Council will carry out the work and charge the farmer for it.
On behalf of the Wysall & Thorpe in The Glebe Parish Council, Welcome!
As one of the 41 Thankful Villages that did not suffer any fatilities during the Great War of 1914 to 1918, Wysall believes in encouraging a strong and vibrant village community that all ages can enjoy and benefit from. We are lucky to have our historic Holy Trinity Church which is well supported; our busy Village Hall which hosts some seriously good regular and special events and of course our local pub, The Plough Inn, which provides a pleasant and popular meeting point for catching up on village life.
Throughout the year Wysall really 'goes to town' not only with special events such as the Strawberry Fair and Christmas Market but also in decorating the Church along with many houses and village areas for Easter, Halloween, Christmas and any other special events that take place. This all creates a feeling of a real village community and gives so much pleasure to villagers and visitors alike.
Our Website and Facebook page aim to keep you up-to-date with current activities, meetings and social events as well as the financial aspects and informative details of village life. If we can help with anything further please let us know.
