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 Bazaar
- a Summer Street Fayre or Festival biannually on even years.
The village calendar is produced using photographs generated in a Photographic competition held in May each year.
It also publishes a bimonthly newsletter - The Community Times.
It makes grants to village individuals and organisations in support of its constitution.
The Council meets bi-monthly, normally in the Church Hall at 8pm
Minutes are taken and will be available for viewing in the Parish Records section of this website shortly following each meeting.
