DELIVERED FREE TO EVERY HOME IN WISSETT BIMONTHLY ........ NO 103........ April 2014

WELCOME

To this on line version of the Wissett Web, a newsletter for the people of Wissett. And to all newcomers to the village: we hope you'll be happy here.

We have a village book which is free to all households called "A Walk through Wissett" by Helen Flaxman, our Village Recorder, and Diana Fernando. Written in 2000/2001, it is a story of the village within living memory, house by house. For your FREE copy phone David Ball on 874599.- Extra copies are available price £5 from David Ball at Birches, Wash Lane, Wissett Halesworth. IP19 0RB

PARTY TIME?

Did you know that Wissett was granted a charter for the right to have a fair and a weekly market in 1267? The market was held on Fridays and the fair on August 1st each year. We have very few, if any, cattle or cheese to sell at a fair nowadays and we have a daily market in the form of the Village Shop, so it's kind of out of date now. Perhaps someone enterprising could start an annual fair or fete on August 1st?

CLOSURE OF THE WISSETT PLOUGH

I think we all know now that The Wissett Plough has closed. We didn't drink enough beer did we? ItÕs a shocking thing that we are possibly to lose our village pub for ever.

Thank you

I would like to personally say a huge "Thank you" to everyone who showed support at the recent meeting about The Plough.
It was incredibly heartwarming to see so many people turn out on such a dark night, the response from all of you has been overwhelming.
We are putting together a committee to take the next steps and your continued support is vital.
Whatever the eventual outcome, our community spirit certainly showed through and I feel very proud to be a Wissett resident. Watch this space!
Hannah Pretty.

PLOUGH ON !

Just to update you, an offer has been accepted on the pub. We are waiting to hear what the potential new owner intends for its future. It has not yet been granted a "change of useÕ'so we are very hopeful that it will be run as a pub.
