Whippingham Community Association (WCA): During the 32 years that Whippingham Community Association has managed the village hall, a host of activities have taken place; whether its tea dances and whist drives for older members of the community; keep fit and weightwatchers for the middle group or band practice and drama workshops for younger people. This has been achieved by volunteers working to benefit our neighbourhood.
If you have a small amount of time and would like to help to ensure the continuing success of the Community Association, please get in touch and let us know. We would appreciate your support.
The Hall was built by Sam Saunders of Saunders Roe just over 75 years ago as offices for his company. Since then it has served the community well as a local school and a community facility. If one looks at the next 25 years the Hall will need to reflect the changing needs of our community.by becoming more energy efficient, offering high-speed broadband connections, it may even need to re-organise its interior space to reflect new uses.
There is no doubt that future developments will extend from East Cowes towards Whippingham and beyond. Development in itself is no bad thing and could bring jobs, but local people are entitled to think that the developments that do take place will fit with the rural nature of the area.
