The village church, All Saints, is situated to the west of the village, and forms part of the High Oak benefice. With a population of approx. 900 residents, and covering 875 hectares, this thriving community benefits from from many local facilities.
Wicklewood supports an extended pre-school and primary school. The village benefits from a Village Hall, built in the 1970’s, as well as a large village playing field and children’s play area. Many regular groups use these facilities, and there is a fine bowling green situated directly behind the Village Hall, in the High Street.
The village has a pub, The Cherry Tree, located on the corner of High Street and Hackford Road.
Further down the High Street Wicklewood windmill stands. Now owned by Norfolk Windmills Trust, this makes for an eyecatching attraction within the heart of the village.
There are many local organisations within Wicklewood, including the Bowls Club, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, to name but a few. Further details of these groups can be found within this website.
The Parish Council, consisting of 7 elected councillors, looks after the day to day affairs of the village, as well as being responsible for managing the Village Hall. They meet once a month to discuss current issues and address any concerns parishioners may raise.
Following the sad death of one of the councillors, there is currently a vacancy. See attached notification
