With no-one willing to stand as Chairman for the Friends of the Wigboroughs it was reluctantly decided at its AGM on 23rd April 2015 that the charity will be closed down.
The Friends of the Wigboroughs (FOTW) is a registered charity (established in 2005) and was created with the aim of raising funds solely for the maintenance and repair of the medieval parish churches of Great and Little Wigborough. Until such time as the closure is complete, FOTW has its own website here.
There are a range of commuity and social events coming up in the Wigboroughs this year with both the Friends and Parochial Church Council getting involved.
The AGM of the Parochial Church Council is being held at St Stephen’s Church, Gt. Wigborough starting after the morning service, so at approx 10.30 a.m.
Friends of the Wigboroughs AGM followed by Thai dinner at St. Stephen’s Church, Great Wigborough. The Friends are particularly looking for ideas on how to strengthen the Rural Community. Dinner for non-members is £5, for more information, or to book, please contact Melanie Newton – email@example.com or call 736118.
