The What's On - Village Newsletter

The Wickhambrook What's On is the Wickhambrook village bi-monthly newsletter and is run by the Memorial Social Centre (MSC) Supporters.

The What's On aims to report forthcoming events by way of short announcements rather than providing specific detail. The What's On is run in conjunction with The Scene which is the village magazine and the two are published on alternate months.

The What's On is delivered to every household within the village, free of charge. The Scene is available by subscription. It contains articles, local business advertising and general information about Wickhambrook village life and reports on what the various clubs, societies and many other groups involved with Wickhambrook are doing.
