As part of the Nation's celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Victory Europe (VE) Day, Wysall had planned a barn dance and supper, bell ringing and a town crier. Whilst the lockdown has put a stop to a lot of that, due to Covic 19 virus, the Parish Council and members of the church thought if we could still celebrate this special day by our villagers decorating their homes and front gardens. On the day, the weather was good, for villagers to be outside with deck chairs, picnics, music playing and what a great day was had by all.

The Tour of Britain Cycle Race passed through Wysall on the morning of Sat 8th September during the penultimate stage. One hundred and twenty top competitors cycled 80kms around the Borough starting in West Bridgford, coming through Wysall from Costock, round past the church, up past The Plough and off to Keyworth.
Breakfast was served from the Village Hall and as you can see from the photographs, the village turned out in force to support the event!
