The Wickhambrook What's On is the Wickhambrook village bi-monthly newsletter and is run by the Memorial Social Centre (MSC) Supporters Group. Its main aim is to raise funds to assist with the running and upkeep of the MSC.
The Scene keeps people in touch with village life by reporting on what the various clubs, societies and many other groups involved with Wickhambrook are doing. The Scene aims to let you have the details in an informed, impartial and generally light-hearted fashion, although at times items of important news are also included and these are of necessity produced in a factual manner.
The Scene is always grateful for new articles, whether they be short, long, funny or just informative - please join in and make The Scene an even bigger community report than it is at present. The Scene has a long history and a most interesting article about the many previous issues was written by Jim Fieldsend and included in the extremely impressive A4 magazine The Millennium Scene. Unfortunately there are no longer any back issues available but you can once again enjoy this article here on the website » read History of the Scene.
The Scene is also run in conjunction with Wickhambrook What's On Newsletter which is the village newsletter and the two are run on alternate months. What's-On is delivered to every household within the village, free of charge. The What's-On aims to report forthcoming events by way of announcements rather than providing specific detail.

New hidden gardens to discover in 2013 The Hidden Gardens of Bury, the annual event which raises money for St Nicholas Hospice Care, will be held on Sunday 16 June. Of the 32 gardens included this year, one third are taking part for the first time or are regular supporters opening again after a break. All the gardens featured are within walking distance of each other in the heart of Bury St Edmunds and are hidden behind high walls, houses or businesses bordering the historic streets.
Many gardens will be offering teas and refreshments or have plants and produce for sale and four churches or chapels will be open for visitors who want to eat their lunch or take a rest. The Hidden Gardens has raised more than £270,000 for the hospice which serves West Suffolk.
The event is open from 11am to 5pm and tickets will be available in advance from the Tourist Information Centre in Bury St Edmunds from mid April or the Angel Hill on the day. View the poster
