Welcome to the January 2018 Edition

It’s a new year, and traditionally the time for new year resolutions!

Perhaps you’ve decided to go on a diet (a well tried new year resolution) or maybe more exercise is for you?

Not so long ago, giving up smoking was a popular new year trial of self control, but in latter years there seem to be fewer and fewer smokers – so that is unlikely to be your resolution of choice.

If you’re struggling to find a direction for your need to improve your life in 2018, perhaps I can make a suggestion?

Woodborough and the surrounding villages are overflowing with clubs and special interest groups all contributing to that special feeling of “belonging to a community”. This sense of belonging can make living in a village so much more enjoyable than other more urban locations.

The pages of the Woodborough Web will give you lots of choice of community groups, with something for every interest including sport, amateur dramatics, bingo, local history, carpet bowls, community affairs, art, singing, gardening and much more.

Of course, it always takes a little effort (and even courage) to join something new, but the rewards could be just the thing to make 2018 your best year yet!
