Working hard for the people of Wickersley

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 and is already being enjoyed by children and young people of the Parish,
