Welcome to the Woodborough Web
February 2019

With life getting back to normal after all of the festivities (thank goodness), I’ve been out and about in the local area this month.

The annual Woodborough “Over 65’s Dinner” took place in mid January, and was organised by Woodborough Community Association. This event is funded by the Samuel Eden trust, but all of the work is carried out by local volunteers.

As one of those who attended I would like to express my thanks to those who worked so hard to make it such an enjoyable and successful evening – keep up the good work!

Another great evening was a visit to the panto put on by the Burton Joyce Players, and you can see my review on page 10.

It must be very confusing for visitors from abroad who attend a British panto. Usually set in some fictitious historical era, in a bizarre rural village location, with a cast of outrageous misfits with highly unlikely names, a foreigner would have no problem understanding why we can’t agree on a Brexit plan.

Of course the killer for the foreign visitor would be understanding why the main female role (dame) is played by a man and the main male role is played by a young woman! Isn’t it great to be British!

I’ve also been spending some time with the people at the CORE Centre (Calverton Oasis Resources and Education). You’ve probably seen their regular ads in the pages of the Woodborough Web, but now you can see “CORE – The Video”. See the link on page 11.

Finally, I’d like to welcome and thank Creature Comforts Nottingham (page 5) who have joined our list of advertisers. As we are a free publication, we need advertisers to cover our expenses and I’d like to thank one of our readers, Kev Furby, who recommended the WW as a good place to advertise. If you can help in finding advertisers, it would be very much appreciated.
