The Wrangle Parents,Teachers and Friends Association raises money to help towards the cost of school trips, the upkeep of the school swimming pool, the children’s Christmas party and new school equipment.

In particular, it organizes events throughout the year including an annual summer fair combining an inter-schools multi-sports competition, archery, a dancing demonstration, children's rides, face painting, a barbecue, music and a car boot sale.  One of the most active village organizations, the PTFA also runs a ball, horse-race nights, quizzes, sleepovers, discos and dances.

Parents with a child attending Wrangle Primary School are automatically members. The PTFA also has teachers and friends of the school who attend meetings., which are normally once a month.

Wrangle Youth Club

Wrangle is fortunate in having one of the few surviving youth clubs in this part of Lincolnshire. This year, moreover, it will celebrate its 60th anniversary.

The present organizers, Barbara and Bert, were there right from when in started up in 1948 in the then village hall—now the Club's own premises—at Wrangle Common. Its survival, despite funding cuts from official bodies, is thanks to their and other volunteers' fund-raising efforts, principally the Youth Club stall at the Wrangle Show. The most recent fund-raising event was a £10/head catered hog roast at the Parish Hall followed by a disco.

Now that operational grants from the County are a thing of the past (although County Hall  still pays for the Club Leader), money thus raised is essential for keeping the Club going. Regular Parish Council donations are also crucial. In addition, the Club needs volunteers, especially if enrolment is to increase beyond last year's 40 members.

Any child between 11 and 25 years can enrol. Only then can they attend the Friday evening sessions (7:30 to 10 p.m.). The facilities include a junior football playing field (also bookable by sports clubs on Sunday mornings), a flood-lit multi-purpose court and a children's play area. In addition to football, and depending on the weather, members are invited to play basketball, tennis, volley ball or cricket. Indoor activities include table tennis, pool or snooker on a ¾-size billiard table, darts, handy crafts and video games.

Essentially geared to school term times and open only on Friday evenings, the Club re-opens two weeks after the beginning of term—when members have settled back into their routines. This year, in addition, a holiday play scheme on Friday afternoons was well attended.

The Club is run as a charity by a management committee of Trustees.
