• Allotments in Wesham available

    Allotment opportunities in Wesham !!

    There are currently a couple of allotments in need of new carers and some much needed TLC.

    Fancy growing your own veg ? Or flowers ? Need some more space ?

    Rental is very reasonable. Please contact Jean Priestley on clerk@wesham.org.uk if you are interested.

    Great opportunity as there is usually a waiting list for these …..

  • Wesham Club Day 2017 – help required

    Wesham Club Day 2017 is approaching fast

    Plans are well under way for a bigger event this year but we are now putting out a request for help from local businesses……

    Our aim is to provide a Fun, Family Day. We are bringing in more things to see, things to do, inflatables, rides and we are providing variety of food and drink options.

    In the past local businesses have asked what they can do to help and this year we have come up with a plan. Wouldn’t it be great for the kids to get free face painting, or free balloon models, or listen to free storytelling, or for kids to get prizes from the running-races ? For this we are looking for local businesses to step in and help sponsor part (or all !) of the event.

    Its a non-profitmaking event. We have no “budget” but we want to put on the best event possible for the community.

    So … if you own a local business, or work for a major multi-national, or anywhere in-between, and would like to support the event then you would have our eternal gratitude

    Many thanks

    The Club Day Committee

    (please share, like and comment to keep this moving around )

  • Wesham Memory Walk

    13436003_10154333673257160_614890211_n The Wesham Memory Walk was launched in 2015, in response to the lack of an officially organised walk in the local area. Memory walks are held around the country in the months of September and October to promote an awareness of dementia and raise much needed funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.13405194_10154333672967160_1883788708_o

    13454040_10154333673047160_679661138_nThe first walk, held on 4 October, was a huge success, raising just under £6000 for the Alzheimer’s Society. More importantly though, the communities of Kirkham and Wesham walked together through the beautiful streets and lanes of our area and supported the event with masses of enthusiasm.13445922_10154333672567160_1875279345_o

    We want to build upon that success this year and make the event even bigger! This year’s walk will be on SUNDAY 18th SEPTEMBER at 13.00 from St Joseph’s in Wesham. The route is a gentle, scenic 5.5km meander, which people can walk, run or jog. We encourage people of all ages, individuals or groups, families and friends (including their dogs) to participate.13444445_10154333673322160_182960259_n

    To register an interest you can email: weshamMW@hotmail.com

    Or message us on the Facebook page: https://facebook.com/WeshamMW/

    Please spread the word so that everybody knows what our brilliant community are supporting on that day!!!
