Best Kept Village and Tour of Britain

We’ve won! Well done Woodborough for winning our section’s Best Kept Village competition. This means we keep the sign for another year.
We also now compete against the other 3 group winners for ‘Best in Notts’. Judging begins August 20th through to September.
This covers the time when The Tour of Britain will be coming through the village and bringing the TV cameras with them. Let’s show them our best side for those photos and films! Don’t forget that obvious community effort scores extra points – so dig out those old bikes, decorate your home and join in with the fun.

Church Services

Please note that the venue for the Holy Communion service on Sunday August 5th has been changed. It will now take place at St. Peter & St. Paul’s, Oxton, not St. Swithun’s as originally planned.

On Saturday September 8th a major international sporting event comes to Woodborough!
Tour of Britain


You can be part of the razzmatazz by helping to decorate the village in advance or by showing your support for this multi-stage cycle race on the day. The teams will hurtle through at about midday.

Yellow bicycles will soon start to appear at strategic points around the village to remind you of this exciting event. Can you help?

Maybe you’ve got a few unwanted bicycles in the back of your garage. If so, Simon can be contacted on 0115 9652595 and he will arrange collection. They will be transformed to create eye catching displays along Main Street.

Or you may prefer to be imaginative and decorate your own property ( especially if it’s on Lowdham Lane, Main Street or Bank Hill ) with plenty of colour, yellow bicycles, bunting, banners, balloons, scarecrows, umbrellas, cycling jerseys etc. and then stand outside to cheer the teams on their way.

Another way to attract the attention of the TV cameras on the day is with art designed to be seen from the sky. Are there any imaginative landowners on the route who may like to make an installation to be viewed from above?

We hope to have the support of plenty of villagers, The Parish Council, The Community Association and local businesses, so why not join us?

Please contact Margaret on 07752028527 within the next week if you think you can help in any way.

Parakeet Spotted in Woodborough

Hi, just thought I would mention there is a green parakeet (I think) flying around the back gardens on the left hand side of  Roe Hill.
