Working to keep the village sparkling

Working to keep the village sparkling

FANTASTIC NEWS: It’s official. We have once again won our sector of the Best Kept Village competition for Nottinghamshire.

Well done to everyone for keeping the village looking lovely despite the rain and poor weather.

That means we are in the finals again – and can walk off with the Best in County award for 2012 if we keep on with the good work.

The other local villages which won their own categories (based on size) were Granby, Radcliffe on Trent and Orston, and we will will be competing against them for “Best in Nottinghamshire”.

Here is the view of Vice Chairman and BKV guru Linda Taylor:

Hi, great news everyone – we’ve won the Best Kept Village for our category!!!!!!

Well done to all,  whether you spread the word, encouraged others or were able to graft yourselves – we were looking lovely.

Of course  – this means that we now need to keep on working – after lots of rain (which all villages had to cope with too , of course,) and then the floods we have a prolific crop of weeds and dust / mud covered areas to deal with.

Let’s win the big one!


A gang of WCA best-kept-village enthusiasts scraped, painted and cleaned the front of the village shop on Sunday May 13th and swept, painted and weeded again on Saturday May 26th.

Did you spot the difference?

What a great night of music and dancing at the Village Hall with Monty and his Anthill Mobsters.

The hall rocked to the sounds of this excellent Woodborough band with renditions of Venus and Mustang Sally reverberating around the place.

A special guest with his trombone certainly spiced up the proceedings.

Can’t wait for the next gig.


Tickets still on sale for Anthill Mobsters on Saturday night – April 28th. Good beer and good tunes. Only £6 each from the post office or pubs in the village.


Best Kept Village: We are in the finals again this year after we won our division. Let’s see if we can walk away with top prize of Best in Notts. Well done to everyone who has done a great job of of sweeping, weeding and general clearing of the village. It looks fantastic.
