Lake Bedding Area - Before After 2

Wixams Gardening Group

The Wixams Gardening Group is a small group of keen gardeners who are willing to give up a little of their time to help improve and maintain some of the communal green spaces in Wixams. We meet fortnightly on Fridays to crack on with the next area.

We’re already running a couple of extra projects like those below and we have a few bigger projects planned for next year.

Here you can see some of the work we’ve done so far:

We think it makes a big difference to the area and almost restores it back to its former glory.

How You Can Help

There are quite a few patches in the area which need to be weeded and we’re trying to do it in stages as it can be hard work. If you’d like to help us then you just need to turn up on the next arranged date and time with:

  1. Clothes you don’t mind getting a bit grubby
  2. Bottled water
  3. Hand tools if you have them such as a trowel.

Next Steps

The Wixams Gardening Group will be meeting again in 2020 to start the next lot of work. Check back here or join our Facebook group for announcements.

Wixams Book Exchange Version 2

Wixams Book Exchange

As you may have seen in other villages, train stations and airports, Wixams now has a bookcase which is used to provide free books to all. If you have any old books you’d like to share, you can drop them off in the book case and pick up a new novel whilst you’re there.

We now also have a shelf dedicated to DVDs, especially those for the kids to watch over the summer holidays!

You can find the Wixams Book Exchange in the foyer of Lakeview Village Hall.
