We have reached the end of an era at the Wayland Partnership with the departure of both long-serving members of staff. Saying goodbye to people you care for and respect is always difficult and emotional but they both have different but exciting futures and the new team have already settled in and are helping to plan an exciting new future for the Partnership.
In the meantime, one of our short-term projects is coming to an end. Growing Together has been a ‘full-on’ activity with projects across the area, but in particular at Carbrooke Millennium Green and at Saham Toney which was highly commended for a biodiversity award.
In the Gallery during August is a moving and inspirational exhibition of photographs, including the Wayland Photography Challenge. We are delighted and honoured to be the first Gallery to show some 1960’s pictures of Jimi Hendrix which have been lovingly restored by Ricky Brooks. We hope people will pop into the Gallery and vote for their favourite Challenge picture. There is always plenty to see.
We are looking forward to the Wayland Show where once again we will be hosting the Health and Wellbeing Marquee, where about 30 stall holders will be attending with all kinds of interesting sales and services and we hope for another sunny day.
The next main event is on September 13th. The Small Business Showcase gives businesses which may be new or in a remote location or have a new product or service, the opportunity to promote themselves. There is still space if any local businesses are interested.
There will be more exciting events in the Autumn and we will be working hard on the community of Culture bid, so watch this space.
