Wembley: Past & Present


Wembley, named after Wembley, England, was incorporated as a village in 1928 and as a town in 1980.

The Town is situated in a strong farming community made famous by Herman Trelle who was four times “Wheat King of the World. In honour of Mr. Trelle, the Town has adopted a wheat theme in its logo.

To the north of the Town is a growing industrial and commercial area from which a number of companies operate. The downtown core amenities include a grocery store, bank service, post office, video outlet, hair salons, vehicle repair shop and a hotel that are all within easy walking distance. A little farther from the main street you can find a greenhouse and service station. Numerous service groups and community groups contribute to the activity within the community. Wembley Elementary School houses kindergarten to grade 4 and Helen E. Taylor School has grade 5 to grade 9.  The Wembley Public Library currnetly shares space with the school library at Helen E. Taylor School. Several recreational areas within the town boundaries include a hockey and curling arena ball diamonds, skateboard park, and soccer and football fields. The Town is bounded on the west by a natural wetland area, a small campground and bird watching path.
