Welcome to the June 2018 Edition

Every two years Woodborough becomes the centre of attention for gardeners with the Woodborough Open Gardens event (Sunday 24th June, 1.00pm – 5.00pm).

This year there’s something for everybody, and you can see all the details on News Page 1.

As well as heaven for gardeners, it’s also a great day out for village socialising (and seeing what’s behind the garden hedges and fences!) – and of course, don’t forget that the NSPCC benefit financially from the event, so everyone wins!

Weather permitting we’ll be publishing lots of pictures of the event in next month’s Woodborough Web, so don’t miss it.

Now a word about deadlines. As you may be aware, the deadline for submitting material to the WW is always the 24th of the month (even Christmas Eve!) to give me time to set up the next edition, though I do try to be flexible with this where possible.

Unfortunately, whilst most contributors help by submitting their material early, an increasing number of items are arriving late, increasing the pressure on your editor (he’s getting on a bit, you know).

So please, can I ask contributors to do their best to meet the deadlines wherever possible.
