Welcome to the October 2017 Edition


This month's edition is one of the largest we've ever published - lots of news and activities that flourish in this part of the year.

If you've been wondering what's been happening with the Environmental Agency's plans for the Woodborough wetland scheme, you can read the bad news on page 5. We received this a couple of months ago, but withheld the news whilst last ditch attempts were made to resolve the differences between the Environmental Agency and the landowner. Unfortunately these efforts came to nothing.

Better news has arrived about the new play equipment on Governors' Field - another project which has taken longer than expected - see page 11.

Another issue which might be causing concern is the plan to close much of Main Street during work to resurface parts of the road. Having spoken to the man in charge, it would appear that the traffic marshals who will be on site will make every effort to accommodate the needs of residents - even if it means waiting a short time. Full details on page 1.

If you haven't already done so, why not register to receive email alerts of late news and urgent events? During the last week, registered readers received notice of 2 separate road closures in Woodborough due to road accidents!

Full details of how to sign up are shown below.
