Collection for a Retirement Gift to Roger Kirkbride, Our Pharmacist

Roger has retired from the Pharmacy in Wymeswold where he has served The Wolds Community diligently for the last 11 years. Not only has he fought hard to maintain the pharmacy and introduced new services but he has provided invaluable advice and support to individuals in a warm, approachable and always professional manner.

We understand that many of you will have individually thanked him, however, as his retirement has happened suddenly many people may not be aware that he has left.

We feel strongly that his contribution to the community should be recognised. For this purpose collection boxes for donations will be available in the Pharmacy and Granvilles until Monday, May 10th. The proceeds will be used to buy a garden token for Roger.

Wymeswold Duck Races and Open Gardens

Wymeswold Village Presents “A Weekend of Family Fun”, 11th and 12th September 2021.

The Duck Races and Open Gardens committees are joining forces this year to bring you all a well-deserved village event!

Saturday 11th September: Wymeswold Duck Races – ‘Goes on Tour!’  The Duck Race is going ‘on tour’ to Wymeswold Playing Fields for this year.

Sunday 12th September: Wymeswold Open Gardens. We are appealing for gardens – whether you have opened previously, or this is your first time.  We would like to have as big a diversity of gardens as possible.  Large, small, established or newly-planted.  Due to a later date we can showcase more fruit and vegetable gardens along with late summer/early Autumn flowers.
