Gainsborough Wishes. What do you wish for in your town?

Gainsborough Wishes has been set up to highlight the community groups in and around Gainsborough. There is loads to do in our town! If you are a community group showcase yourselves here for others to see – someone out there might be able to help or join you! If you are fundraising and holding an event we can post it here. If you are an individual what are your interests? What would you like to see in Gainsbrough? Tell us and we will post your wishes here. We don't have a magic wand and make no promises but we may be able to help in very small ways.

With the current restrictions in force all social gatherings have been suspended for now. There are contact details of all the groups on this website on their own pages or the regular meetings lists so please contact them directly for any updates. Be safe everyone.
