Welcome to the Woodborough Web
December 2018

An unusual edition. The sadness of the recent commemoration of the end of the 1st world war meets the celebration of the forthcoming Christmas season.

As you’ll read on the next page, Christmas started (and ended) early (mid November) for me, but by now most of us will be getting caught up with the demands of the season.

This weekend the lights will be going on in all of the local villages – the Woodborough switch on is on Sunday 2nd December at 5.00pm on Governors’ Field, with lots going on. I think Santa might pop in, but don’t tell anyone!

Within this month’s pages you find lots of Christmas events, so why not pop along to one or more of them? Whichever you choose, you’re guaranteed to get that Christmassy (is that a real word?) feeling and meet up with old friends.

Also, at this time of year, I must thank all of those people who work away each month to send in their contributions to the Woodborough Web – without them it wouldn’t exist. Happy Christmas to all of you (you know who you are).

I must also thank my wife Kate who proof reads each edition – often at inconvenient times – and shows me where my ever inaccurate typing fingers have gone astray!

So to everyone I wish you a happy Christmas and a peaceful (and hopefully prosperous) 2019.

Finally, remember that we will be publishing a January edition (the official closing date for submissions is 24th Dec) so let me have reports (and photographs if possible) of your Christmas celebrations.
