September 3rdMusic on the Green (in the Village Hall if wet) from 2pm to 5pm. The Group Harbour Lights could not be with us but instead we have booked the group called Maggie and Stan who play a wide variety of music. They will play 2 sets of 45 minutes and we are pleased to say that Steve McKie, and Katie Durrant and Mark Little will also be performing. This is a free event however a bucket will be available for donations towards to the upkeep of the village Hall. The bar will be open for drinks and there will be a BBQ from 3pm onwards. Bring something to sit on, a blanket or chair and invite your friends to come and join us for fun afternoon of music, refreshments and hopefully sunshine!

It is with great pleasure that the Parish Council announce that Wickham Skeith now has a Defibrillator. You may well have seen the yellow defibrillator cabinet on the wall of the village hall. Should you need to call for an emergency ambulance for someone who has collapsed with a suspected heart attack, they will tell you the code to enter into the keypad to access the defibrillator.
The Parish Council is currently looking at training providers and, once organised, there will be a list of training sessions published that will be free for people to attend. There will also be an opening ceremony for our Wickham Skeith Defibrillator - more details to follow.
The Parish Council thanks Cllr Freeman and all those involved with fund raising events, enabling the launch of this project.
