Woodborough in Bloom

A very Happy New Year.

There is now a hint of spring as the bulbs begin to peep through and buds appear as we start to plan for the coming year.

The shrubs at Smallscroft and lavender at Ploughman Avenue beds have now been pruned for us by Gedling Borough Council with the support of our Parish Council and more bark chippings put down.  This will all start to put on new growth in the spring.

Everything is looking very tidy with the mild winter we have had.

The AGM of Woodborough in Bloom will be held on Thursday 14th March 2.30pm at the Nags Head. Please come along and join us for tea and cakes, and share thoughts for the summer planting.

We look forward to another season and thank all who support and help us to maintain our beautiful village.

Jan, Jane and Elizabeth.

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.
