Woodborough Local History Group

Due to unforeseen circumstances the speaker for our April meeting will now be Ann Featherstone, who tell tell us about “Fools and Horses – The Victorian Circus”. See the revised item on page 5.

The originally planned talk on East Midlands Airport will now take place on Thursday 17th May.


Chris at Calverton Post Office tells me that they’ve been cutting down 40 trees behind the building, resulting in – you’ve got it – lots of firewood!

The logs will require trimming to size but they’re available FREE OF CHARGE to anyone who wants to collect them.

Just call into the Post Office and ask for Chris.

Woodborough Parish Council Meeting

6.30pm 10th April at the Village Hall

The Parish Council meets on Tuesday, April 10th at the slightly earlier time of 6.30pm.

View the agenda HERE. 


On Tuesday 10th April we received an email from a village resident:

“I have seen a high roof old style white transit van reg Y*** RHR driving very slowly around Woodborough looking down driveways. It has been on Main Street, Roe Hill and Old Manor Close. There are at least two men in the van and look rather suspicious.”

This may be nothing, but stay alert!

Attempted Entry

After sending out the above warning to registered readers on Tuesday, we were told of an attempted entry to a house in Woodborough on the same day.

Please make sure that you keep your doors locked at all times and report any suspicious activity to the police.

Woodborough residents will now see new faces behind the counter in the local shop and Post Office.

Brijesh and Jayna Patel are the new owners of the business, and are looking forward to serving you.

I understand that there are a number of exciting innovations planned for the shop and, hopefully we’ll be publishing an interview with Brijesh and Jayna in the May issue.

In the meantime, why not pop in and meet Woodborough’s newest faces?
