Previous Events

Autumn Cinema – 19th October

For our Autumn cinema event we showed a heart-warming film, Fisherman’s Friends. Based on the true story of a group of Fishermen bound together by lifelong friendship and shared experience for more than 25 years the Fisherman’s Friends have met on the Platt (harbour) in their native Port Isaac to raise money for charity, singing the traditional songs of the sea handed down to them by their forefathers.

In 2010 they signed a major record deal and their album “Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends” went Gold as they became the first traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album. Since then they’ve been the subject of an ITV documentary, played at Glastonbury, released three hit albums and played to hundreds of thousands of fans at home and abroad.

Dates for your diary

Fireworks – Tuesday 5th November

We are getting ready for our annual firework display on Guy Fawkes Night – Tuesday November 5th.  Thanks to the generosity of those attending last year we have a spectacular show for you in 2019. Although this is a free event we will be shaking our buckets to hopefully raise even more for next year’s show. The fireworks will be lit just after 7pm but please arrive early for the best views at this very popular event. Food and drink will be available as always at the Four Bells.

See last year’s fireworks HERE.

Revival – Saturday 30th November  8pm Village Hall

We are delighted that the ever-popular group Revival will be returning to perform for us at Woodborough Village Hall on Saturday 30th November. As always this local six piece have a packed show of the most popular hits of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s guaranteed to get you dancing in the aisles from the very outset. Their show always sells out fast so get your tickets early from the usual outlets. There will of course be a licensed bar with drinks and snacks available.

Forthcoming Events – December

Carols Around the Beacon and Christmas lights switch on – Sunday 1st December Governors Field  5pm

This family event ,arranged in conjunction with the Parish Council, was a great success last year and really marked the start of Christmas in our village. This year we hope it will be twice as good as we not only have our very own Woodborough Community Choir ‘Just Sing’ again but they will be joined by the Children’s Choir of Woodborough Woods School. Wrap up warm, bring along your lanterns and flashlights and join them as they lead us in singing our favourite Christmas Carols to get us all in the Festive spirit. There will be free mince pies, mulled wine and soft drinks available and we have booked Santa early to ensure he also makes an appearance. 

Monthly Bingo

Our regular monthly bingo takes place at the Institute on the third Friday in the month -the next game will be on Friday 15th November at 7.30 pm.

Monthly committee meetings

These are scheduled for the first Tuesday each month and also take place at the Institute on Roe Lane at 7.30pm. New faces are always welcome as we are a charity and here to support the residents of Woodborough.

Theft of books from Woodborough Book Exchange

Please be aware that our Book Exchange has been receiving some unwanted interest recently. We have noticed that large quantities of books have been removed (stolen), along with the book ends that were holding them up. Please do report anything  suspicious that you notice in the area. We are hopeful that this behaviour will cease as it compromises the long term provision of this service for the Community.
