The Woodborough Web

Welcome to the May 2020 Edition

Here we are, about to enter our 5th week of lockdown, and living a life that nobody would have imagined a few months ago.

Whilst many businesses are in real trouble, others such as Amazon, Netflix and food delivery drivers are working flat out. Many small businesses are having to change their methods of operation to look after customers whilst obeying the social distancing rules, and I have put together a short list of those who are now providing new delivery and collection facilities (see page 1). If you let me know of other local businesses who are helping us stay at home, please let me know and I’ll add them to the list.

For local church goers, there’s now an on-line service each Sunday – full details on page 13. Please note that this is hosted on YouTube and that the link to the video changes each week. We will publish this on page 13 as soon as we receive it from Revd Giles. If you don’t want to miss it, please make sure that you are a registered reader (see below) so that you will receive a personal email as soon as the link is available each week.

Please don’t forget those who are locked in, but who do not have the advantage of email and internet access – please use the phone to ring to say “how are you doing?” and to have a chat. It will mean a tremendous amount and is easy to do.

Finally, you may have noticed a slight delay in publishing this month’s edition. This was due to some technical problems with the hosting, and I would like to thank Pete Wiles who is a resident of the village and works as a web developer. Pete saved this month’s edition without charge – thanks Pete.
