Community Film Night: We are holding our next Film Night at the Woodborough Village Hall on Saturday Oct 28th. Come and join us as we watch Their Finest – a World War Two drama with a twist. Starring Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy, it is a comic story about a team making a morale-boosting film about the Dunkirk evacuation. Tickets available from the village shop and we’ll have snacks and drinks at the showing. A fun night out!!
Coach Trip to Beverley: Another excellent day out was held on September 20th with the coach heading to the market town of Beverley in Yorkshire. This trip follows hot on the heels of our spring journey to Ludlow. Here to see some photos from that trip – to get a flavour of the day. If you want to join our next excursion in the spring, tickets will be on sale for £12 each. Contact us or call Carol Tansley on 965-2721.
Best Kept Village: We’re just been informed that we are through to the final round of the competition. This is excellent news as we didn’t manage to make the finals last year! So let’s impress the judges who will be going round our village again for the final round of judging. We hope they find ours to be worthy winners once again! We have organised two clean-up and clear-up events recently to spruce up the roadsides and make us look bright and welcoming. Please help out by clearing and pruning your own frontages!
Street Market: Once again we had a lovely time at our annual Street Market – held this year on Saturday July 15th. The highlights included our dog show, tombolas, skittles, bouncy castle and food stalls but we also had a visit from Woodborough’s own alpacas! Such a pleasure to see these unusual and lovely animals. Maybe they will come back for another visit next year.
Facebook: We now have a Facebook page so if you want to keep up-t0-date or comment on any of our events or activities, have a look at our page. It’s free!
Our annual fireworks extravaganza is planned for Saturday November 4th this year at the Four Bells/ Governor’s Field. The mushy peas, burgers and extra treats will be available and we are hoping to attract lots of support again this year .
Emergency Plan: Here is a link to the rcently updated Woodborough Emergency Plan prepared by the parish council. Please read and if you have any questions there are contact numbers in the document.
WCA Bingo: Join us on the third Friday of every month for our monthly bingo at the Institute.
Village Events: A good web resource is Woodborough Web where you’ll find events and news about the village.
Speedwatch: An initiative to slow down the traffic in our village is under way – it is led by the parish council and supported by the WCA. We need more volunteers and you can “read all about it” in the latest Speedwatch report.
