Welcome to the September 2017 Edition

September means very different things to different people.

If you're still at school it means the start of a new year in a new class, or even the whole exciting business of starting a brand new school.

If you're at the other end of the age scale, it might be the time when you have a belated summer holiday after the family crowds have returned home and left your chosen destination a little quieter.

Gardeners may see it as the end of the growing season, and the time to start preparing for the shorter and cooler days ahead.

The far-sighted amongst us will see the approach of the annual autumn events of Bonfire Night, Halloween, Goose Fair on the horizon - or even the lights of Christmas! (This month's edition even includes the first news of a Christmas 2017 event!)

The first of Woodborough's annual Autumn events takes place on Saturday 2nd September (2.00pm - 4.00pm) in the village hall - the Horticultural Society's Autumn Show. As well as the horticultural exhibits, there are handicraft and cookery sections for both adults and children. You'll find full details on page 10, so why not come along?
