Resident Community

Although Wichelstowe is a relatively new development, there is already a strong sense of community with residents, community groups and volunteers coming together to offer local events and services.

East Wichel Neighbourhood Partnership

East Wichel Neighbourhood Partnership has been formed by Wichelstowe residents to encourage social interaction and discussion of issues of particular interest to the Wichelstowe community itself.
