WAG needs volunteers!

Willingham Action Group has instigated many improvements to our village life. Working with the Parish Council we helped with purchase and design of the play equipment by the Ploughman Hall. WAG volunteers planted 1300 trees around the village and in the Community Orchard. In the past we have organised litter picking, started several social groups and each year we coordinate the Feast events. These things are just a small sample of all we do but we want to do more and for that we need more volunteers. As a volunteer you might give a few hours once a year running the bar at the Fen Gallop, alternatively you could join our Environment Group and spend many hours helping maintain the orchard – the fruit is free! It’s your choice as to how much you do, and when. 

Our volunteers become great friends and we have our own WAG social lives. If you want to join us or want more information please contact us here

Help a Hedgehog!

Surely we all love hedgehogs with cute faces and tiny paws? However, as one might expect they are under threat because of changes in the way humans organise their lives. More and more gardens and some smaller public spaces are being walled or fenced off completely meaning hedgehogs can no longer survive in them. As a consequence we see them less and less in our immediate surroundings.

There is a simple answer, leave gaps in fences, or better still install a hedgehog tunnel. For more details on all hedgehog matters and some videos see http://www.hedgehogs.org.uk
