The Scene - Village Magazine

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.

Mindfulness Bus
18th September 2014

Over September NSFT are joining up with the Norfolk County Council and Suffolk Libraries Mobile Library services. Staff from NSFT will be travelling on Mobile Library Bus routes across Norfolk and Suffolk, covering the more rural parts of the counties where people perhaps find it difficult to find out about and access mental health services. The Library buses cover a massive schedule of routes each day across each region. We will be visiting Wickhambrook at all the usual mobile library stops at the usual times on Thursday 18th September 2014 - We will be answering questions, handing out information and directing people to helpful organisations across all areas of mental health, but with a strong focus on Dementia as September is Dementia Awareness Month.
