Firework Display – We had an excellent but manageable turnout of spectators who watched a fantastic display of fireworks in perfect weather conditions. Thank you all for your donations towards the fireworks. You were very generous. Our thanks also go to Craig and Gaynor and all the staff at the Four Bells who worked very hard in the bar and on the barbecue. All in all it was a very successful event.

Film Night – We were very disappointed to have to cancel our film night. We were badly let down by the supplier of the equipment at the last minute and were unable to source an alternative. We have more shows planned for next year in March and October so please keep an eye out for details of these. We will hopefully have better luck – we have some excellent films in mind.

Dates for your Diary

Revival – Saturday December 6th  – 8.00pm - Village Hall

Revival, the local slick six piece band, play a great selection of 60s and 70s covers. So many of you enjoy this evening so make a note in your diary and get your dancing shoes ready! Real ale from Nottingham Brewery will be in the bar as well as a selection of other beers, wines and soft drinks.   Tickets at £12 are available from both pubs and 119 Main Street (call 965 3072 to check first). Numbers are limited to allow for space to dance so please don’t delay.

Christmas Bingo  Night – Friday 19th December 7.30pm – The Institute, Roe Hill

Come and join in with this friendly evening. As well as the bingo there will be tea and coffee with mince pies and a raffle with lots of prizes.

Carols round the Beacon – Tuesday 23rd December 6.30pm Governors’ Field

Sadly, we had to cancel this event last year because of high winds and rain so hopefully we will be luckier this year. There will be mulled wine and mince pies to help your vocal chords and may be a visit from a gentleman in red with a sack of goodies for the children so come along and join in with singing the carols.

Over 65s New Year Party – Saturday January 10th 4.30pm for 5.00pm - Village Hall

Every year the WCA, supported by the Samuel Eden Trust, hosts a party which includes a 3 course meal and entertainment for village residents over the age of 65. If you would like to join in this event and haven’t been before do get in touch with us so you can be included in the guest list. Either call the WCA number, 965 3072, or Mavis and Brain Leafe 965 2528 as soon as possible

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Races - Tuesday February 17th 11.00am Roe Hill

We are pleased to host the Pancake Races as usual. Please come and cheer on the children. Let’s hope the weather is kind to us – we’ve been lucky for the last few years

Annual General Meeting – Tuesday March 3rd 7.30pm – Methodist School Room

The Woodborough Community Association will hold its Annual General Meeting at 7.30pm. Anyone from the village is welcome and we would be delighted to see some new faces.  Those wishing to vote at the meeting should register with the Secretary 20 days prior to the meeting (before 13th February) please contact us if you wish to register. Please note, this is a little later than usual but do come along and let us know how you think we are doing and may suggest any idea for future activities. We are always looking for new members to join our committee group and we would welcome anyone who may be interested in coming along to see what we do – all our meetings, which are held in the Methodist Schoolroom at 7.30 on the first Tuesday of every month, are very informal and open to anyone from the village. The next one is 2nd December followed by 6th January.

Minute Secretary Vacancy We have been very lucky over the last three years to have had the support of Duke of Edinburgh Gold candidates to help with this important but not onerous task. Although the local D of E co-ordinators have been contacted we haven’t had any volunteers so far. If it is a task which you think you could cover, or you know anyone else who could, please contact us.

Tel: 0115 965 3072

Post: PO Box 9915, Woodborough, Nottingham NG14 6WR.

Anyone interested in permanent or relief newspaper rounds in Woodborough, please contact Colin on 0115 9892232.



The next meet of the Oxton Camera Club will be on Tues 2nd December at 7.30pm in the Green Dragon pub.

The mini-project from now until then is 'street photography' so become the David Bailey you've always wanted to, or just blend in with the crowd!

Ideally, pictures of street scenes and, where possible, include people either willing/not to showcase your take on the 'street'. This could be Oxton Main Street to New York and everything in between.

Woodborough Players

Quiz Night - As we take a break from our quiz  nights in December, the next one  will be Tuesday 27th January  at 7.30pm in The Institute, Roe Lane. For £2 you get refreshments in the interval and a raffle ticket, and the opportunity to answer some 80 questions of mixed subjects. It’s important to keep the grey matter exercised, so we look forward to seeing you, when you will be made to feel very welcome.

December Evening - Our “Evening of Christmas Things” will take place in St Swithun’s Church at 7.30pm on Friday 19th December. Tickets are £3 each, including refreshments, which can be obtained either by telephoning 9653500 or on the door on the night. The evening is a celebration of Christmas readings, interspersed with popular carols and is enjoyed by performers and audience alike. Last year we had a church full of our usual very supportive public so we hope that this will be repeated this year, together with any newcomers.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and a healthy and successful 2015.   We thank you sincerely for your continued support.
