Wigginton

The village of Wigginton lies on the northern border of Tamworth. St Leonard’s Church and St Leonard’s C of E School are focal points of village life, as is The Crown Inn.

On April 1st 2012, Wigginton and Hopwas Parish Council took over responsibilty for the Samuel Parkes V C War Memorial in Wigginton from Staffordshire County Council. The Memorial had been provided through the hard work of a committee of volunteers and is now a great asset to the village. This area at the centre of Wigginton will be known as Wigginton Jubilee Memorial Green.

The Parish Council acts as Trustee for the Wigginton Village Hall Trust and manages the funds raised from the sale of the Village Hall.  The funds have been invested and the Trustees are currently considering funding a joint Church and Village Hall, and contributing to extending and modernising the current Church Hall.  Residents are invited to send their views on this or attend the next Trust meeting.
