World's Biggest Coffee Morning
Thank You

I would like to send a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who attended and so generously supported our 26th annual Coffee Morning recently. The event was part of Macmillan Cancer World's Biggest Coffee Morning and was a wonderful morning, with over 160 people attending.

The total raised so far for Macmillan is £1158.
A brilliant effort for our small village!!!

Special thanks to my team of helpers without whom the morning would not be possible, Karen Horne, Deidre Smith, Jean and Stephen Coe, Dorothy Dunnet, Jill Scott and Lorraine Brown. Not forgetting my brilliant husband Dave and Belinda Lee from Chocoholics.

With grateful thanks for all the donations of money, cakes and the interesting variety of 58 raffle prizes and to the W.I. for the free use of their hall for the morning.
Everyone was so very generous as always. Thank you!!!

There will be a final total in December after Chocoholics orders are completed.

Our Clubs

Badminton Club

This club meets on a Wednesday at the MSC and consists of a group of friends who have got together to play badminton once a week. Although there are currently enough players to make up the group if you would like further information, they can be contacted by going along to the MSC on one of their club nights.

Bowls Club

The Members of the Wickhambrook Outdoor Bowls Club play in various Club and League Competitions. The team is a friendly mix of bowlers made up of locals and players from other villages and so everyone is made welcome. Anyone interested can come along for a practice bowl or coaching session where you can just bowl and enjoy yourself - we hope you will enjoy the company so much you want to join us.

Carpet Bowls

We offer a very warm welcome to new members from Wickhambrook and the neighbouring villages. The game is easy to learn and fun to play. Find out more about Wickhambrook Carpet Bowls. You will find yourself among friends, and will enjoy great companionship.

Football Club

Wickhambrook Football Club has two teams, the First Team which plays in the Cambridgeshire League and The Reserve Team in the Halstead & District Football League - both of which have enjoyed successes. If you would like to know more about the Football Club, are interested in joining either as a supporter, helper or player, then we would be pleased to hear from you. Please visit our page to find out more about the teams and our match results.

Horticultural Society

The Wickhambrook Horticultural Society was formed in 1889 and is one of the oldest Societies in Wickhambrook. It is a thriving and vibrant Society. It holds regular monthly meetings with interesting speakers covering a wide spectrum of garden related subjects. So why not join us – new members are always welcome!

Local History Society

The Wickhambrook Local History Society meetings are held in the WI Hall on the third Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm. We have around 50 members who enjoy talks, often illustrated by slides, on topics of local and historical interest. We have at least two summer outings each year and a social evening in December. Members also attend events and meetings held by the Suffolk Local History Council to which we are affiliated.

Wickhambrook Scout Group / Beaver Colony and Cub Pack

1st Wickhambrook Scout Group currently has a Beaver Colony and Cub Pack, both these groups aim to provide a balanced program of activities that falls within the scouting ethos (community values, teamwork friendship, fun and adventure etc). We are within the Cambridgeshire county and are a Newmarket district group.

Royal British Legion

If you are an ex-Service man or woman or have an interest in the Services, you may like to know that we have a Branch of the RBL locally: The Wickhambrook and District Branch. Sadly, as the majority of the membership at present is made-up of those who served in the 1939/45 or during the time of the conscription post-war, there is an urgent need for younger members who have served since then. Please find out more about the Royal British Legion.

Snooker Club

This club would welcome more members. Snooker can be played most of the day when the MSC is not being used which is currently only on a Thursday during the morning. There are two tables and games are played by putting money into the meter which turns on the lights above the tables. Contact the Memorial Social Centre for more details.

Tennis Club

Wickhambrook Tennis Club has around 50 members, who play for pleasure, exercise, and/or competition, in some cases all three! Our membership includes a wide range of abilities and ages. We compete in the Norfolk & Suffolk League, entering Men’s and Mixed teams and also offer professional coaching for juniors. You can be serious – but it’s not compulsory. New Members always welcome.

Wickhambrook Players

Our club is for people interested in all aspects of the theatre. There are many ways in which you can join in. There is something for everyone - you don't have to act if you don't want to. Come and see what Wickhambrook Players have to offer - you won't regret it and we guarantee you'll have a good time with interesting, fun people.

Women's Institute

The Wickhambrook W.I. has a long history which they would be delighted for you to become part of. They have members of all ages and offer an interesting and varied calendar of events. The W.I. Hall is one of the very few left in the country which is still owned solely by the W.I. and good use is made of it by the village. A warm welcome awaits anyone who would like to join.
