New footbridge

17/10/2020  •  Village News

We're delighted to see the unsafe bridge down at Nethercote Brook has now been replaced with a brand new one. This means the right of way is reopen, allowing walkers and residents to once again choose a scenic country walk to go between the two Wolfords.

Ready for any emergency

17/07/2020  •  Village News

Purchased with help of a grant from Warkwickshire County Council, Little Wolford now has an Emergency grab bag. When the Wolfords Village Hall reopens, this will be stored there, ready for use in the event of a community emergency such as flood or fire. Items in the kit include rain ponchos, foil blankets, a small first aid kit, a wind-up radio, head torch and hazard tape. There is also bottled water and sandbags. Little Wolford Parish Meeting has prepared an Emergency Plan, with key contacts and info on how to activate this laminated in the emergency bag.
