The Over 65’s Dinner in Woodborough Village Hall

Previous events through December and January

Revival Saturday 1st December

Once again this event was a sell out with this very popular local covers band recreating hits from 1958 to 1975 using state of the art amplification equipment, authentic instruments, great musicianship and fabulous vocal harmonies.

Carols Around the Beacon 2nd December

‘Just Sing’ community Choir returned again for this joint event with the Parish Council Christmas light switch-on .There was a great turnout and Santa made his usual appearance, with sweeties for the children. The mince pies and mulled wine were well received and helped to mark the event as the beginning of Christmas festivities.

Over 65’s Party 12th January  

This took place on the 12th January and numbers were up slightly on previous years with some welcome new faces. Guests enjoyed a sherry reception followed by a 3 course meal with a quiz and raffle to follow. Please do let us know if you are aware of any neighbours or other residents of the Village that would benefit from being included in this event so that we can add them to our invitation list for next year. Thank you to all the volunteers who worked hard. We couldn’t do it without them. Thanks also to the Samuel Eden Trust who fund the event.
