School's Out!

I think  everyone will remember breaking up at the end of a summer term at school. With six weeks of holiday ahead the the thought of returning to school was so far away to be completely out of sight!

Year six students from Woodborough Woods had even more to celebrate at the now traditional "Prom" event as they left their primary school days behind and  looked forward to future adventures at their various secondary schools in September..

After "mocktails" and nibbles all provided gratis by the Nag's Head, the party-goers made their way (very noisily!) to more celebrations at Ramsdale Park Golf Club on board an ex- London Transport double decker bus.

I think it's fair to say that a good time was had by all!

Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

Our next trip is to the Malvern Autumn Show on Sunday 24th September.  The cost for members is £27 and for non-members £29 which includes transport and entrance to the show.  If you would like to book a place on this trip please contact Malcolm on 07814879720.  Early booking is advisable as this is always a popular show.

A date for your diary is Thursday 19th October when we will be holding our AGM in Calverton Village Hall.  We are hoping to have a speaker as usual and I will give you more details on this in a future edition of the Woodborough Web.

Don’t forget that we will also be having our “Heaviest Pumpkin” competition on that evening so if you are currently nurturing a giant pumpkin bring it along on the night and have it weighed!

I have been asked to remind all allotment holders that our water is metered and excess use could result in our rents being increased in the future.  Please make sure that your hoses and connections don’t leak and please don’t go off site leaving your hose connected to the water supply.
