Welcome to the August 2016 Edition

This month’s edition brings you over 200 pictures happenings around Woodborough - the reason being that July is the month when three regular events take place.

The first is the annual Feast Sports Day on the sports field. The sun shone and the rain kept away, and adults as well as children enjoyed running, sack races and more - read the report and see the pictures on Page 16.

The second event is the occasion when Year 6 of Woodborough Woods School leave to go on to their secondary school destinations. School “Proms” came from the USA and were originally for secondary school leavers, but in recent years the younger school leavers have joined in. Once again the sun shone and the mercury rose - pictures on Page10.

The third event in Woodborough’s summer celebrations is the Street Market, organised by Woodborough Community Association - and what do you know, the sun shone again! Pictures on Page 14.

Unfortunately, the news from Woodborough isn’t all good. Once again the village is being blighted by the actions of a few selfish and stupid youngsters who are intent on vandalism and loutish behaviour. You can read about it on the “Letters” page.

If you suffer any of this vandalism, it is important the you let the Police know (call 101) so that they are aware of these problems.

Finally, the trial scheme of providing an easily printable version of the Woodborough Web (so that readers can print off a copy and pass it on to those without internet access) comes to an end this month. It’s time to decide if this is to continue - so if you do use this service and want it to continue, please let us know.
