Sports Pavilion refurbishment

We are very pleased to announce that the Parish Council has secured the necessary funding for the sports pavilion refurbishment. Cllr Shaw has been working very hard applying for grants and the Parish Council now has £77,000 of funding in place. The refurbishment is planned to commence in January.

Washdyke Update

The Washdyke Committee held their AGM on 19th November. Now that all the projects are completed the tasks of the Washdyke Association are drawing to a close. Whilst there will still be some voluntary working parties, the committee plans to dissolve in 2015. The Parish Council would like to extend its thanks to the committee for all of their hard work in creating a fantastic community area.

The next meeting of Wymeswold Parish Council will held on Monday 5th January 2015 in the Jubilee Room, Wymeswold Memorial Hall, Clay Street, Wymeswold, starting at 7:15pm. All parishioners are welcome to attend.
