Woodborough Local History Group
A New Year – New Resolutions!

Perhaps one of yours could be to come along to your Local History Group!

Our next meeting is on Thursday, January 16th, when Michael Parkin will be telling us about the General Strike of 1912 – harsh and bitter times!

 As usual, our meetings, in the Institute, Woodborough, are open to anyone who enjoys history, which is often related to Nottingham. Visitors and new members are very welcome to join us. We start at 7.30 pm and light refreshments are served following the talk. There is a small admission charge.

Governors’ Field – New Installations

Two new springers have been installed in the Governors’ Field, Woodborough. The equipment has been chosen after feedback that we didn’t have many items suitable for disabled users. The new springers can be used by wheelchair users – as well as being suitable for all of the younger children in the village.

Next year we will have a mini celebration as we will name the boat springer “The Mayflower”, linking in with county wide activities to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower from Plymouth to the New World.

We hope that everyone enjoys the new equipment.
