NwW Community Council


Established in 1966 the Nayland with Wissington Community Council is an umbrella organisation for some 22 Nayland Societies whose representatives, together with a few co-opted individuals, make up its membership.

In its Constitution the role of the Council is:

"to provide adequate recreational facilities, playing fields, playgrounds, Community Centres, and other amenities of a similar character for the benefit of the community residing in Nayland and Wissington and the neighbourhood in the interests of social welfare and with the objects of advancing education, furthering health, relieving poverty, distress or sickness or in pursuing any objects which now or hereafter may be deemed in law to be charitable by improving the conditions of life of the persons for whom the facilities are primarily intended."

Its main activities are organising:

  • the annual Fireworks and Bonfire
  • the Village Quiz
  • fund raising opportunities for village societies in a Christmas Fayre
  • a Summer Street Fayre or Festival held biannually
  • community events such as Jubilee Celebrations
  • the village calendar is produced using photographs generated in a competition held in May each year
  • it publishes a bimonthly newsletter - The Community Times
  • the village Christmas tree in the High Street
  • the community defibrillator at the Village Hall
  • a financial contribution to the maintenance of the Nayland and Wiston website

The Community Council makes grants to village organisations or individuals in support of its constitution.
