Welcome to the September 2019 Edition

As I write this, the temperature has dropped and a little welcome light rain has started to fall – thank goodness! Whilst we all like to see the sunshine and blue skies, you can have too much of a good thing!

With days of record temperatures following heavy rains, we only need a snow storm to complete the full set! “Global warming” is turning out to be more “global extremes of weather”. I suppose it’s something that we are going to have to get used to.

Still on the environmental theme, it’s good to see that there’s a new movement, based in Calverton, aiming to reduce the amount of plastic we use. Jess, Vicki and Sandie have set up “Plastic Free Calverton” (I’m sure that they are happy to include Woodborough and the other local Villages in their scheme) to educate us about reducing our dependence on this polluting material.

They are holding a special event with lots of related stalls at Calverton Village Hall on Sunday 1st September 10.00am – 3.00pm. Why not go along and support the earth for our children and grandchildren?
