After an incredible year raising thousands of pounds for Jenny Farr House with our Diamond Appeal (final amounts to be disclosed later in the year) we are now looking towards next year and our hopefully much anticipated Woodborough Open Gardens event.

This will be our 4th open gardens and we do hope we can offer another fantastic event to the village and to all garden (and afternoon tea) lovers!

The proposed date is SUNDAY 28 JUNE 2020

We would love to hear from anyone who would like to be involved, either by opening their garden or by helping with all the other aspects of the event (teas/refreshments/raffle selling/stewarding etc…) We are hopeful that we will have several new gardens involved in addition to all our wonderful garden owners who have supported us thus far.

Please consider opening your garden….  Every garden is unique and will be appreciated by visitors whatever size or design. Wondering around our beautiful village and dipping in and out of other people’s gardens is a joyous way to spend an afternoon – especially with all our fantastic refreshment gardens en route.

If you would like to talk to us first please contact either myself or Amanda Mellor on 965 4856  or email or

We look forward to hearing from you.

Woodborough Carpet Bowls Club

Looking for some fun and light exercise on a Friday evening? Then look no further!

We meet every Friday (starting at 7.20pm) in Woodborough Village Hall to play carpet bowls. We don’t take it too seriously, so absolute beginners are welcome. Your first visit is free so you can give it a try at on us (if you decide to join, it’s just £5 annual membership plus £2 per attendance).

We currently have members from Woodborough, Arnold and Calverton, but wherever you live, we’d love to see you.

Want to know more? Then give Kate a call on 0115 9652376.

To Make You Smile

Just mentioned to the missus that I’ve always had a bit of a thing for Beyoncé.
“Whatever floats your boat.” she said.
“No,” I said. “That’s buoyancy.”


It’s a five minute walk from my house to the pub, but a half hour walk from the pub to my house – The difference is staggering.
