For anyone who still wishes to purchase a 2019 calendar there are a few more copies available at the Post Office or Forget Me Not.
The calendar can also be bought by post. Click here for more details and an order form. The cost is £5, plus £1.30 for p&p. If you have any queries telephone 01206 262807 or email.
The Community Council is delighted that some volunteers have come forward to be part of a new Calendar Team but a few more are needed to ensure this tradition can continue.
We are a friendly little team and many hands make light work; ideally one or two volunteers are required to assist on competition day (6th May) with setting up the display in the Church Hall and serving refreshments, with helping to sell calendars at local events and someone to co-ordinate the sales of calendars (distribute to those selling them and keeping tally) is needed.
If you think you may like to help or would be interested to know more, please contact Lorraine 01206 262807 or email.
Do keep taking photographs for this popular competition. We hope to announce further details and include an entry form in the next issue of the Community Times – subject to more volunteers to help with the calendar coming forward.
Photographs reflecting any of the 12 months of the year taken in recent years which represent our beautiful parish and our thriving community will be welcome; these may include scenic views, architectural and natural features, street scenes and any seasonal or unusual aspects of the parish. Community events, such as the Fete or Open Gardens and society activities would also be appreciated.
As usual the competition would be open to residents of the Nayland with Wissington parish, and those who work in the parish or are active participants in parish societies/groups.

The Nayland Branch of the Royal British Legion commemorated and celebrated the centenary of the end of the First World War with events held in November 2018. This could not have been done without the help of so many people.
Details and photographs of the commemorations can be viewed here.
There are TWO Public Access Defibrillators now located in Nayland – on the outside wall of Nayland Fire Station and on the outside wall of Nayland Village Hall.
Please familiarise yourself with these locations and let your friends, family and neighbours know too.
Always dial 999 in an emergency, the call handler will know there is a defibrillator nearby and will provide the access code if needed.
‘Minutes matter’ when it comes to a sudden cardiac arrest. Public Access Defibrillators can save vital time whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive and can dramatically improve a person’s chances of survival when administered within a few minutes.
