Safari Street Market

Sunday 16 August 2.00pm – 5.00pm

Your WoodboroughVillage Facebook Group administrators Lynne Morgan and Sophie Hopkin are excited to announce that we now have over 20 stalls lined up for the village, and there’s still plenty of time to book a stall – deadline is 31 July.

Or please save the date to enjoy an amble round the village and peruse the stalls!

The idea is that you have a stall on your drive or the edge of your property to sell your own goods ,toys, plants or homemade foods arts and crafts, or any combination thereof!

We hope to have the Alpacas out and about too and hopefully some activity on the Four Bells Car Park.

We will charge £10 to list the stalls and then produce a map and index of the addresses which we will market on line and via a poster. All the profit will go to the local service centre of the NSPCC in Nottingham.

Anyone who wishes to participate please contact either Sophie ( ) or Lynne 07801 011 320 ( with your email address and one or two words re the goods you will be selling/promoting.

So please get in touch

  • If you’re having a clear out and have things you’d like to sell
  • If you have homemade produce cakes/fruit/veg/ plants you’d like to sell
  • If you have art and craft work that you’d like to sell
  • If you’d like to run your own tombola
  • If you’d like to promote your business with a display stall

We just ask everyone to be stay safe and observe social distancing throughout the village.

And let’s hope for good weather

Thank you

Lynne ( and Sophie (

Woodborough Virtual Open Gardens

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all who contributed, helped and attended the Woodborough Virtual Open Gardens! We haven’t quite had a final count up but with additional donations, gift aid and plant sales, the total is over £3,000 raised to help children in Nottingham.  2020 will be remembered for many things, but the generosity of everyone in such uncertain times has been amazing!
There are so many people to thank but please can I give a special mention to Michael Dobbs who created the wonderful welcome video for us, to Sophie Hopkin who made extra money for us with lockdown photos and together with Stu Nicholas helped put the videos together.  Finally thank you to each and every of the 31 garden owners without whom we could not have raised a penny! Finally, Timmermans Garden Centre have once again supported us by allowing us to host the event on their website – and Andy Baxter and Gavin Herbert were the technical geniuses who put the website, working into the night so that we could launch on time.
The Woodborough Virtual Open Gardens 2020 remains live on so if you haven’t yet had a look, please do, it’s a lovely way to spend a couple of hours.
I am writing this in time to meet Michael’s Woodborough Web deadline but we will of course draw the prize draw on 31 July to win the gorgeous garden bench, donated by Timmermans. We will be live on Facebook to make the draw, follow our Doverbeck NSPCC facebook page for more details!
We hope to have a thank you social when rules allow at Timmermans and let’s hope that we can run a real event in 2022! Stay safe all and thank you again.

Chair of Doverbeck NSPCC
