Coach Trip to Bridlington  – May 16th

If you’re looking for a leisurely day out, how about joining us on our spring coach trip on May 16th to visit bright and breezy Bridlington? With its sandy beaches, award-winning promenades and historic harbour, this is a hidden seaside gem. There are still a few places left so if you’d like to go but haven’t booked your seat yet please contact Carol Tansley on 9652721. Tickets are priced at just £12.

Best Kept Village 2018

We aim to defend our title of Best Kept Village again this year so please help us by continuing to keep your gardens and frontage tidy and let us know if there is an area that you need help with or you feel needs attention. Extra points are awarded for public areas so we are meeting as usual for a Village Tidy- up working party on 19th May to focus on these areas. We will be meeting at 10.00am in the Village Hall Car Park and all volunteers are welcome. Equipment and refreshments will be provided.

The first round of Judging will take place between Monday 4th and Friday 22nd June, which also coincides with preparations for the Woodborough Open Gardens Event on the 24th June so hopefully the village will be looking at its very best.

Nottingham Concert Band returns to St Swithun’s Church in Woodborough (NG14 6DA) on Saturday 19 May with ‘Memories’, an evening of music chosen to reflect special times, places and people.
Band members, friends and families have all contributed ideas for the programme, which includes favourites selected by Conductor & Music Director Robert Parker to mark his 25th season on the podium. ‘I’m really looking forward to sharing our latest show-stopping medleys, light classics and swing-band tributes,’ he says. ‘But we’ll also be playing some more contemplative numbers which I’m sure will strike a chord with the audience.’

‘Memories’ starts at 7.30pm and is in aid of St Swithun’s Church. Tickets (£8 or £4 for under-16s) include interval refreshments and are available from Terry Robinson (0115 965 2396) or Jean Bush (0115 965 2195) and from the shop/Post Office on Main Street in Woodborough. Reservations can also be made through the band via e-mail to
