8th – 10th MAY 2020

The 75th Anniversary will provide our nation and our friends around the world with an opportunity to reflect the enormous sacrifice, courage and determination of people from all walks of life who saw us through this dark and terrifying period.

It will be an opportunity for us all to remember the enormous sacrifices that were made at home and abroad and to joyously celebrate, as people did 75 years ago, the arrival of peace in Europe. To commemorate this important time Woodborough Community Association and Parish Council would like to organise a three-day celebration as many communities of the UK and people around the world are doing.

We can’t do this on our own. Therefore we are holding an open meeting in WOODBOROUGH VILLAGE HALL on WEDNESDAY 26th FEBRUARY at 8.00pm.

Please come and support us with ideas and offers of help. It would be fantastic if other groups in the village could get Involved.

We hope to make it a ‘weekend to remember’ getting the whole of the village involved.

And yet another missing object following the flooding.

The flower trough from under the road sign for Smallscroft has gone missing. Unsure if it was washed away or has been stolen.

Please if anyone has information contact Woodborough in Bloom on 9652860 (Jan)

Missing Dustbin Lid

Steve Bamford writes: During the recent weather we seem to have lost the lid to a large galvanized metal dustbin which was situated adjacent to the stream running past the rear of our property on Holme Close. It’s obviously been blown off during the storm and swept down stream. I’ve checked the immediate area but conditions at the moment are making it a little difficult to conduct a more thorough search. Should someone find it washed up further along, we would love to have it back – please contact the Woodborough Web by email at

Garden Chair Cover

I have rescued a garden chair cover, middle of the village near the post office.

Please contact Alan Ball on 07739 977121.
