Wysall is a village in Nottinghamshire.. It is located 11 miles south of Nottingham. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 321. Holy Trinity Church, Wysall is Norman, with a 13th-century tower with spire and a 14th-century chancel. The wooden ladder into the bell-chamber of the tower is also 13th century.

Wysall is linked with the neighbouring village of Thorpe in the Glebe and the two villages are run by Wysall and Thorpe in the Glebe Parish Council. Every Summer, Wysall hosts the annual Strawberry Fair at the village hall. The village is host to The Plough Inn, a very popular pub.

The village is neighboured by the large village of Keyworth to the north, Widmerpool to the east, Willoughby on the Wolds to the south east, Wymeswold to the south and Costock to the south west. Wysall is one of the Thankful Villages – those rare places that suffered no fatalities during the Great War of 1914 to 1918.

Seth Harris of Wysall South Africa school hockey tour  with the support of the Wysall and Thorpe Bowls Club Educational Trust

Sixteen year old Seth Harris of Wysall has recently home returned from South Africa having spent two weeks touring with his school hockey tour and has described it as something he will never forget.

Says Seth: “We spent a week in sunny Durban where we played 3 tough matches against very strong opposition. Aside to the hockey, we visited an orphanage where we presented them with a computer and full football kit so they could set up their own team. This visit was rewarding on many levels, particularly spending time with the children individually made me realise how fortunate I am.”

The Wysall teenager said they had also visited the local marine conservation agency where we learnt about their work in protecting the marine world as well as attending a shark dissection, learning about the anatomy of the shark.

“Later we enjoyed some downtime zip wiring across the Sampoya River before heading to the Dumazulu Cultural Village where we witnessed the traditions of the Zulu Kingdom -- African bush elephant, Black rhinoceros, African Cape buffalo and a Lion -- which was a breath taking experience. To conclude the visit, we visited a Cheetah Outreach project where we saw the great work the project provided.

Seth said that missing out on seeping a leopard wasn’t perhaps surprising. “Our guide hadn’t seen one since New Year’s Eve last year!”

“The second week of our tour saw us move down to Cape Town where we played our last four matches, again, against very well drilled schools. The facilities available at each school, especially in Cape Town, were second to none.

“ However, one match was played with the local children of Langa Township where it made us really appreciate the life we had back in UK. This game was also rewarding for many of the older boys as we were able to see the results of our charity work completed back at school; the new clubhouse and pitch looked brilliant in the shadow of Table Mountain. Towards the latter stages of our tour, the weather became very British and so benefitted the team. We won most of our matches playing in the rain! Fortunately, the weather cleared enough for us to visit Robben Island and the cell of Nelson Mandela before tackling the 2hr 30 walk up Table Mountain the next day. The views at the top were amazing and will certainly stay with me for many years to come, as well as many of the activities I undertook on the tour.“

The Wysall teenager added:  “The whole tour was certainly a once in a lifetime experience not to be forgotten. Coupled with the support of the Wysall and Thorpe Bowls Club Educational Trust, the tour was one of the most memorable things I’ve done.  I’d like to thank the committee members for helping me to get to South Africa, definitely a trip of a lifetime.”
