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.

Wickhambrook Fundraisers

Wickhambrook Fundraisers organise events to raise funds for Wick-Kids Youth Club and also St Nicholas Hospice.  Events organised range from bingo, car boot sales and charity dances to name but a few.

In 2007 a cheque was handed to St Nicholas Hospice for £2,363.54.

The Fundraisers thank everyone for their support.

The Teen Fund Project

Development work on the Teen Project started in February 2001 following requests from young people in the village for a skate/BMX facility. Not everyone wants to ride a skateboard or BMX so it was decided that the facility should cater for them as well.

The final design of the skatepark was arrived at after considerable research, including visits to some twenty skateparks in various parts of the country, and in consultation with future users of the Project. Advice was also sought from experienced skatepark users and operators, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, the police and specialist equipment suppliers.

The ‘all-sports’ area provides an all weather surface with a goal and basketball ring and a tennis practice wall is planned. As well as ball games, the area can be used by new skaters who want to gain experience before venturing onto the skatepark, or who want to practice skate-dance etc., and for other interests such as remote control car racing.

Funding for the Project, which is costing around £63,000 has come from a number of sources, local fundraising events; individual, club and business donations; Borough Council and County Councillor grants; the Parish Council and the Lottery grant from Sport England. A complete list of contributors will be available in due course.

Installation work on the Project, which is located on the village recreation ground, started in mid-October and it is hoped that it will be ready for use by early December. An official opening is planned and will be advertised.
