Welcome to the December 2017 Edition

Well, here we are with another year nearly gone - and it seems so recently that we were all having to get used to writing 2017 instead of 2016. Time certainly flies when you're having fun!

With the festive season approaching fast, it's time to wish all of our readers a very happy Christmas and peaceful and prosperous new year from myself and my wife Kate (who does her best to correct my spelling and other mistakes).

Special thanks also go to our regular contributors (you know who you are) who, month after month, manage to come up with interesting new topics to appear in the Woodborough Web - not an easy task! Your efforts are very much appreciated.

Some of you may have heard of a sad milestone this Christmas. Dorothy Keig, who edits and publishes the Calverton Echo, has decided to retire, and at the time of writing it looks as though the Echo will cease publication after the December issue.

The Echo has been published and distributed around Calverton for over 18 years, and will be missed by many. We wish Dorothy a long and happy retirement.

Finally, don't forget that the Woodborough Web will be published in January, so don't forget to send in your news items by the 24th December.
