Welcome to the Woodborough Web
May 2019


I’ve been very busy this month trying to drum up advertisers to support the Woodborough Web. As well as the loyal businesses who have renewed their contracts we now have a few new ones who you’ll find within the pages (after sending out about 600 emails!).

Please make the effort to look at the advertisements and consider using their services if appropriate – by doing this you will be helping to cover the costs of running the Woodborough Web and to keep it running – and if you run a business, please consider advertising with us. (Contact woodboroughweb@gmail.com)


Many of our readers are what could be described as “mature” and if you fit into that category, something very special is happening this month, just for you!

The University of the Third Age (better known as the U3A) is coming to Calverton, to serve the local villages. In spite of the rather frightening official title, the U3A can be a great source of enjoyment, fun learning and new friends. Membership is limited to those who are retired or semi-retired). There are already flourishing local U3As at Mapperley, Burton Joyce, Arnold, Southwell and Ravenshead, and now it’s our turn!

There is an initial meeting at Calverton village hall on Wednesday 22nd May at 1.30pm (a bit of a funny time for a meeting?) and this is your chance to find out what it’s all about, and to put forward your ideas and wishes.

Existing U3As cover many activities including computer studies, theatre visits, handicrafts, bird watching, language tuition, reading, dining out, photography, outings, singing and much more.

Please go along and make this venture a success.
