During March, when you next shop at Waitrose in Wymondham and receive a token for a good cause, keep an eye out for the Wreningham Heritage Group appearing as one of the three good causes.

WHG will be doing lots of work to capture the history of Wreningham and its people. Give them your support by giving your Waitrose tokens to them

Thank you.
