ARE YOU NEW TO WILSTEAD?

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 young 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


A Brownie pack



All ages:

Coffee morning in the Methodist Hall every Thursday morning


Football Club – several teams


P3 footpath group 


Flower & Produce Association


Wilstead Allotment Association


W I


Various Church groups


Wilstead Players


Garden Club


Bowls Club



Older people:

Sunshine Club in the Village Hall every other Friday afternoon.



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.
