Found in Woodborough

A mobile phone has been found in Woodborough this morning (Sat 13 July).

If this belongs to you please ring 07775 698111 stating the make of the lost phone and the number.

Do you have an unwanted projection screen?

As you probably know, Calverton & District U3A is starting up, and we desperately need a reasonably large projector screen (5ft wide or more).

If you have one to lend (or donate), please get in touch on 0115 9652376 (Woodborough)

Missing Cat in Woodborough

Our cat George has been missing for 3 days now which is pretty long by his standards so I am starting to get worried. He is quite small, totally black except for a small white patch on his tummy, semi- long haired with a distinctive fluffy tail (looks like a feather duster). Doesn’t wear a collar but is microchipped. We live at 27a Main Street so May be close by that area. Would it be possible to ask people to check their sheds and outbuildings in case he’s got trapped somewhere?

 My contact number is 07780 692246.

Woodborough Community Association

Great news, we are through to round 2 of the Best Kept Village competition.  Judging starts again on Monday the 8th for 3 weeks to see if we can be the winners again and retain the sign for another year!
Also, can I remind you that it is not too late to book a stall for the Street Market. We are particularly looking for activities that children can take part in. So any one who has a Splat the rat game , or similar,  or who makes up any suitable game, is very welcome to get in touch.
