Welcome to Wigginton Parish Council
Wigginton Sports and Playing Field Association is recruiting
a new secretary and treasurer.
Our secretary is leaving for lands anew and we wish to replace her with immediate effect. This is not a major role and would involve you in 10 x 1 hour meetings a year, preparing the agenda and minutes and a small amount of administration work.
Our treasurer retires early next year in May. We wish to replace him now in order for a smooth take over. The role involves accounts work, receipts and payments. Issuing of invoices and monitoring energy accounts. Attending 10 meetings a year. Preparing monthly accounts for our meetings.
Anybody interested in either role is invited to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.
You may have noticed that drilling rigs and heavy machinery is arriving back at the former well site on Wigginton Road. There is no need for alarm. Work is now being carried out to return the land to full agricultural use but this does involve re-drilling, hence the drilling rigs, which are necessary as the bore shaft has to be drilled out prior to back filling. The work should be completed this year.
Carols Around The Tree
The annual carols around the tree event held on Monday 18th December 2018 was a great success. The Lord Mayor and civic party attended together with the Sing Stars from Wigginton Primary School and around 150 residents. Refreshments were kindly provided by Sainsbury’s Haxby Store.

Wigginton lies 5 miles north of the centre of the historic city of York. The village has no obvious visual boundaries to the east and north and is defined by a system of drains that run along the edge of Wigginton Moor. To the south the furthest most point is bounded by the York ring road and the western boundary with Haxby runs down from Broad Oak Farm down to Moor Lane, Westfield Lane, Kirkcroft to Green Dike Lane and then to the ring road.
Wigginton has a Primary School, a Health Centre, a dental practice, 2 churches, 2 public houses and a village shop. Public facilities include a church hall, village recreation hall, the old school and the Wigginton Sports and playing field Association which offers the opportunity to play squash, tennis, bowls, pentane, football and triathlon. There is also a safe play area, Church Fields, for younger children and to the west of the village newly planted woodland, millennium wood.
The town sits on flat ground consisting mostly of clay with soil that is sand and alluvium. In the centre of the village is Westfield Beck. The nearby town of Haxby now merges with Wigginton though the old Parish Boundary map still shows the dividing line. This runs east to west along the back of the houses on Wheatfield Drive on its southern edge as far as Barley Drive. Here it turns northward cutting across Greenshaw Drive until it reaches the road known as The Village. The boundary follows this road until it turns west. The boundary at this point continues northward cutting across Windsor Drive near Ripley Grove and then out into the countryside.
