Christmas Fayre 2022

On Saturday December 3rd we will be holding a Christmas Craft Fair. The Stalls will be stocked with a wide range of excellent products so that Christmas Shopping could be completed in one day!

Wall Heath Village Heritage Day

Wall Heath Community Association are staging a Heritage Day at the village Community Centre on Saturday 13th November 2021, admission is FREE. Almost two hundred photographs will be on display showing what life was like in the community in the past with some photographs almost one hundred years old. That number of photographs means that on show will be buildings which have long since felt the force of the demolition hammer. In addition groups from around the village have supplied photographs of their members, past and present, so that the number of faces runs into several hundred. Village groups have also been invited to have their own display. Support from the Community has been very encouraging with over thirty individuals, groups and businesses agreeing to part sponsor the event. The Heritage Day will be open from 11.00am until 4pm with the opening ceremony being performed at 11.30am by The President of the Community Association, Dave Tyler.

Further details of the event can be found by downloading the Wall Heath Village Heritage Day Leaflet (4 page pdf file) or by contacting Terry Church Tel 07974 428261. Email terrychurch6@gmail.com

2021 AGM

The 2021 Annual General Meeting of the Wall Heath Community Association was held by “Zoom” on Tuesday 9 March.

After fourteen years in position as Chairman Pam Horwill has decided to step down from office. During her tenure Pam has worked tirelessly and overseen a gradual expansion in the activities offered by the Community Association so much so that prior to the enforced lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Community Centre was in use every day of the week. Happily Pam’s experience and expertise will not be lost as she has agreed to stay on the Committee and serve as Vice-Chairman.

As Pam’s successor we welcome as Chairman Colin Smith who is well versed in the activities of the Association, having been a member of the Committee for six years, for the last two of which he has served as Vice-Chairman, Colin has been the leader of the Tuesday afternoon Kurling Group for the last five years. We wish Colin well as he assumes his new role.
