Welcome to the Wickhambrook Village website

Welcome to the official website for the parish of Wickhambrook.  We look forward to welcoming you regularly as the information and content changes and you find items of interest.  Wickhambrook is made up of 11 greens.  It is believed that the 'spread-out' layout of the village and its greens conforms to Anglo-Saxon village patterns.  To have kept our village 'shape' for over a thousand years is remarkable.

18th September 2014

Over September NSFT are joining up with the Norfolk County Council and Suffolk Libraries Mobile Library services. Staff from NSFT will be travelling on Mobile Library Bus routes across Norfolk and Suffolk, covering the more rural parts of the counties where people perhaps find it difficult to find out about and access mental health services. The Library buses cover a massive schedule of routes each day across each region. We will be visiting Wickhambrook at all the usual mobile library stops at the usual times on Thursday 18th September 2014 - We will be answering questions, handing out information and directing people to helpful organisations across all areas of mental health, but with a strong focus on Dementia as September is Dementia Awareness Month. For more information visit the website here

Friday 26th September 2014

Diary of Events

October  brings us ...

Honour for Wickhambrook Resident

Wickhambrook resident John Barton, General Secretary, Retained Firefighters Union has been awarded an OBE for services to Fire and Rescue in the recent Queen's birthday honours.

RFU President Tony Morgan said:

"Each year we see fitting recognition for those who have made an extraordinary contribution to public service through the FRS. Be it operationally or in other equally vital service departments and I offer my congratulations to all the recipients of awards.

This year in particular I am also pleased that RFU General Secretary John Barton has been appointed an OBE in the list. John has in total 40 years of service behind him, 30 years as an operational firefighter and Officer in Charge and almost 15 years as a full time official, 5 years whilst still operational. This award is well deserved"

General Secretary John Barton said:

"To have received such an award came as a total surprise but one which I shall always be extremely proud of. In accepting it, I do so as a tribute to my former colleagues at Wickhambrook Fire Station, whose enthusiasm, dedication and professionalism could never be challenged, to close colleagues Tristan, Jenny, Christine and Fran at Head Office and RFU Officials throughout the country who work silently on behalf of members on a daily basis."
