NEW FOOTPATH OPENS!!!!

Great news! The new footpath along the A366 Trowbridge Road is now open. This new amenity is for all of the parish to enjoy. The Parish Council has fought long and hard to achieve this. The new pathway will play a vital role in connecting the new 'Wingfield Circular Walk' to existing rights of way, allowing people of all ages to enjoy the countryside around the village, visit the War Memorial and finally have a safe journey to the Bus stop and allow easy access to taking children to our local school. We would especially like to thank Maggie Novotni for leading this project to a successful conclusion and all of those whose support and effort has made this possible. WELL DONE & THANK YOU Simon Taylor IMG_1120 IMG_1117

WINGFIELD WOMBLES – GREAT WORK!

Taking advantage of the road closure last week, Tony Bennion, Parish Councillors and friends finally took direct action to sort out the litter epidemic in Wingfield. Many THANKS go out to Tony, Helen,Max & Cosmos Bennion, Helen's dad Doug Male, Maggie Novotni, Peter & Yvonne Roberts & Jon Trimby for getting out there and getting their hands dirty. We all hope that you have noticed the difference and now we are asking all residents of Wingfield to come and help on April 11th to really get our village cleaned up.
