Wickersley is a beautiful and historic parish. It has many rural aspects with two woodland areas - Wickersley Wood and Wickersley Gorse, two large recreational areas - Bob Mason Recreational Ground and Wickersley Park - where major development work is underway. The Parish is based in the Community Centre and Library in the heart of the village. The village itself has a busy shopping area alongside a vibrant social scene. Winthrop Gardens, at the edge of the village, is a community and sensory Gardens and Tea Rooms run by a team of 60+ volunteers supported by the Parish. These are some images of these sites.

The Covid 19 pandemic has affected our lives and Community in so many ways. During this period and lockdown the Parish Council has worked hard to bring some cheer to our local area, as can be seen from the pictures below, showing our virtual VE Day celebrations, the rainbow roundabout, the Poppy trail around the village to name but a few of our virtual events.
One of our big achievements has been the redevelopment of the play area at Wickersley Park, this opened in August 2020 and is already being enjoyed by children and young people of the Parish.
