Our mission is the cultural, economic, environmental and social development of Wayland. We run a number of diverse projects across the town of Watton and the 13 surrounding villages, from a community fridge and Men’s Shed to a business centre and community gallery.

Project complete!

We are delighted to have completed our new Sensory Garden! With £17,000 funding from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, through the Postcode Local Trust, we have turned our empty yard into a sensory garden for people with disabilities and their carers. Come down to Wayland House and have a look!

Our community fridge project is transforming the way Wayland thinks about food waste. Businesses and residents donate food they no longer need, and then other local people come along and collect what they need. For free!

The Dragonfly Gallery and Visitor Centre is one of the many local attractions that make Wayland unique and distinctive. It is the home of the Visitor Centre but its main function is as an art gallery – It is the only community owned gallery in the area.

The Wayland Business Centre, run by the dedicated, professional and friendly Wayland Partnership team can be found in the centre of Watton in mid Norfolk. With light, airy rooms, ample free parking and up to date technology, Wayland Business Centre is THE place for you if you are considering letting office space, hosting a meeting or presentation or offering training.

The HAPPY Project, funded by the People’s Health Trust, aims to meet the needs of isolated and lonely people in our area as well as some of the villages.

Do you have any ideas that you would like to see take place and would like to become involved in? Would you like to be a volunteer and help someone who may be lonely by encouraging them to join one of our existing groups and make new friends thus bringing a little light into their lives?
