Then you are very welcome and we hope you will join in with all community activities. One of the benefits of living in Wilstead (or Wilshamstead as it is formally known) is that you can get to know your neighbours and other people in the village quite quickly. If you are interested in being part of village life then there is plenty for you to join in with. For details have a look at the Newsletter and the Diary of events, but here is a taster to begin with:  

In the local area there are two doctors surgeries

For  children:

Toddler groups in the Evangelical Church Hall on a Wednesday and in the Methodist Hall on a Friday

Pre-school playgroup in their own building on the Lower School Site

We have a very active Parish Council, a Residents' Association for those living on Briar Bank Park, riding stables and 3 churches. The village is also well served by the Post Office and Store, a mini-market and pharmacy, two take-away restaurants and two pubs. These last are core to a thriving village and we urge you to use them - or lose them.

To find out more, look on the relevant pages on this website or send us a message. We will pass it on to someone who will be able to give you further information.

This Year Will Be Held on Saturday 27th August 2022

At Last!! It looks as if the Wilstead Flower, Produce and Handicrafts Show will go ahead this year now that things are starting to get back to normal.

We have changed many of the classes in most sections from previous years that the show was going ahead, as some were getting a bit stale and we hope you will like the changes.

The new schedule will be printed in July and will be found in the Village Post Office. Meanwhile we will post the schedule on the Village website soon so keep an eye on

The classes for the photographic section this year are:

(1) Mist

(2) Silhouette in black & white (3) A flowering shrub

(4) A thatched building

(5) Junior class – A bench

The show is a friendly community event and all entries stand a chance of a prize so why not have a go!
