Welcome to the May 2018 Edition

April is supposed to be the month for showers! Well this April certainly lived up to it’s reputation (apart from a brief heat wave – but this is Britain!) with a flooded Main Street in Woodborough once again.

The new management of the Woodborough Post Office and shop are now up and running (more information on page 1) and I’m sure that you’ll join with me in wishing them every success – and that means supporting them by every means possible.

A couple of years ago, Woodborough without a shop was a shadow of its former self, and we certainly don’t want to go back to that. So please support the shop as much as you can, not just by bringing in the occasional parcel, but by actually spending money on goods. The phrase “Use it or lose it” really is true, and losing it is not an option if we want Woodborough to continue to be such a great place to live!

Finally, it’s your last chance to have a say on the plans for the development of the Sam Middup Field – you can complete the questionnaire HERE. Please do this ASAP as the survey is about to close.
