Woodborough Art Group

Woodborough Art group welcomes new Members

Are you a budding artist who has always wanted to give it a go, or an experienced artist who wants to enjoy the rich and enthusiastic company of other painters in a warm, friendly and sharing environment? Then join us at Woodborough art group.

We meet on Thursday mornings from 10.00am until 12.30pm at Woodborough Institute, Roe Lane, Woodborough. NG14 6BW (just up the lane from the Four Bells on Main Street).

We have an annual programme of workshops, demonstrations and open sessions. We have co-opted artist Viv Sharland as a regular workshop facilitator. We organise sessions with local artists and have an open day associated with Woodborough Street Market and a Christmas art show. You can dip in or out of the programme and join in projects or just get on with your own thing.

We enjoy supporting each other, sharing skills and exploring different techniques. We meet all year with a break over summer and Christmas.

Annual membership is £40.00

May Day weekend Best Kept Village preparations 2019

A huge thank you to all of our volunteers who came along to join in with the annual spruce up of the village as we attempt to uphold our title of Best kept Village again this year. Even if you weren’t able to join us on the day please do help by keeping the areas outside your own property tidy. The first round of Judging will take place in June so we hope that the village will be looking at its very best. Do let us know if there is an area that you need help with or you feel  needs attention.

15th May Over 60s Spring Coach Trip to Tamworth

The visit to this large Saxon market town, steeped in 900 years of history, couldn’t have been better. The Magnificent Norman Castle was fascinating to explore and those energetic enough to climb to the top floor were rewarded with a lovely view of the stunning Castle Pleasure grounds. There were other activities available including following the canal towpaths, or visiting one of the largest and oldest Churches in the Midlands-St Editha’s.

The town has many unique and independent shops and for those who wanted to just sit and relax there were plenty of seats and green spaces including in the castle grounds park to just rest and enjoy one of the sunniest and warmest days of the year so far.

The coach journey was very smooth with a pleasant driver who was happy to take the group anywhere else they wanted to visit en route. At just £12 per person, it remains very good value. A good time was had by all.
