Brian’s Grimsby Fish

A Message to Customers in Woodborough

I’m sure we were all deeply shocked to hear of the sudden death of Brian recently, from a heart attack.

His widow and daughter are now trying to get his business up and running again but do not have sufficient details of his customers.

If you would like Jane to visit you in the future then please contact Jane Fisher direct on 07716 646776 or Charles and Laura Wardle on 9652219 and we will pass on your details.

Message from the Parish Clerk

I’ve received notification that the proposed new site for clay extraction has now been withdrawn from the Minerals Local Plan – so no need for anyone to respond or work their way through the materials (unless they are interested in the sites beyond Woodborough, of course).

Burton Joyce Players

by  Gill Bowness

All is not well at the Community Respite And Protection charity shop. There are lots of things to sell, and Polly the manageress can always count on her merry band of volunteers to pander to all of the customers’ needs.

The only problem is that they are up against competition for customers from the slick Oxfam shop down the street, and what few people do enter the C.R.A.P. shop never seem to buy anything. To make matters worse, one of the charity’s Trustees is due to make an inspection and she has not been impressed by the shop’s performance of late.

There may be trouble ahead – which of course is the cue for a song and happily there are lots of songs in this light hearted musical comedy.
