Welcome to the January 2017 Edition

Another new year is upon us and it’s time to make those new year resolutions! You know the sort of thing, it usually means giving up something you like doing, or taking up something that you don’t really want to do.

So what do you intend to do for 2017? Perhaps you’ll lose some weight, give up smoking or take more exercise? Well, let me make a suggestion - why not get more involved in one of the many village activities on offer?

Woodborough is blessed with a fantastic number of special interest groups and by getting involved you’ll meet more people, widen your horizons and generally have a good time. In the pages of the Woodborough Web you find details of many opportunities to do this, but let me draw your attention to just a few.

The Woodborough Players are our local am-dram group, and would really welcome additional members. So whether your interests lie in appearing on stage, props and scenery, sound and lighting or front-of-house work, why not give it a try? For more details from the chairman, email Simon Vernon on . Even if you do not wish to take part, please support the group by attending their performances (see page 3).

Another village group which does a lot for Woodborough village life is Woodborough Community Association. Some of the events they organise include the Woodborough Street Market, the Hog Roast, the fireworks display, village clean-ups, carol singing around the beacon, coach trips, community cinema, and much more. They have a monthly meeting to discuss and plan these events and need more members (of all ages) to assist - perhaps you can help? Have a look at their website or contact them by email at .

These are just two of the many local organisations in the village - by joining any one of them you’ll be helping Woodborough and also gaining new friends and interests. Surely a new year’s resolution worth thinking about? Kate and I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017.
