SAVE THE DATE -
Sunday 22 June 2014
We are delighted with the response to our appeal for people willing to open their gardens for this event and we’re thrilled that there will be 10+ gardens on our trail – with some being offered for the provision of afternoon teas/pimms tent. We’d still like to hear from anyone else who might be interested. Please don’t by shy. We’re not looking for pristine weed free flower beds and manicured lawns – but gardens large or small that have been lovingly created. It will also be great to have a few plant stalls along the trail so if you don’t feel able to open your garden you might like to consider taking a few cuttings and potting them up at the appropriate time…
We’re confirmed the date – Sunday 22 June and we’re in touch with Gedling Council and the Police as we foresee parking being our greatest headache.
We’d love to have a logo to use on our publicity…. So if there’s anyone in the village feeling creative or can identify a free open source design from the net then please get in touch. We like the idea of an open garden gate…. appealing to our naturally inquisitive natures and an invitation to enter the garden and explore.
We’ll be convening a meeting in January (after we’ve poured through the paperwork from the council!) but in the meantime, if anyone wants to get in touch or offer support please contact Lynne Morgan on 0115 965 4745 or email@example.com or Amanda Mellor on 07792 341 557 firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much… in anticipation of a great new village event.
PS – We’re also delighted to report that we’ve raised over £3,000 for the NSPCC in the last 12 months from various fundraising activities including a Ceilidh, House to House Collection, Wine Tasting Evening and a Shopping at Hobbs night.
Thank you so very much for your support and we take this opportunity of wishing you all a healthy, happy and peaceful Christmas.
See the chiropodist on Tuesday December 10th from 8.30am to 11.30am, in the Institute
Because the lead up to Christmas is usually busy for everyone we will not be holding our monthly quiz in December and therefore your next opportunity to exercise your grey matter will be on Tuesday 28th January in the Institute, Roe Lane, starting at 7.30pm. If you have never been to our quiz nights before, do come along and give it a try. For £2 you get a cup of tea and biscuit in the interval and a raffle ticket, and the opportunity to answer some 80 questions of mixed subjects. So we hope to see you on the 28th January when you will be made to feel very welcome.
“An Evening of Christmas Things”
We will be putting on our Christmas Evening at St Swithun’s Church on Thursday 19th December and we hope that this year the weather will be kind to us. Tickets at a cost of £3.00 each (which will include refreshments during the interval) are on sale now from the lovely Mike, Sue or Ian at the village shop or by contacting your normal sources. For now, please put this date in your diary because it is a very enjoyable evening of Christmas carols and readings, with plenty of humour included.
Our Pantomime – “Little Miss Muffet”
Rehearsals are going well for our pantomime “Little Miss Muffet” which will be staged on Thursday/Saturday 30th/31st January and 1st February when our evening performances start at 7.30pm and there will also be a matinee performance on Saturday 1st February, starting at 2.00pm. Tickets at £6.00 for adults and £5.00 for over 60’s or those in full time education can be obtained from Mike, Sue or Ian at “Woodborough News” We think we have got a super panto for you this time – one that is rarely seen!!!
We are always looking for new members to join us, especially younger members (from teenagers onwards) so if you have a yearning to “tread the boards”, or would like to be a member of our important backstage/front of house crew, then please call 9653500. You will be made to feel very welcome. There are a number of plays we cannot consider staging because of a lack of a younger element. You don’t have to be Laurence Olivia standard – just keen. We so love keen. Give us a go – we really are a very friendly bunch.
Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year
Woodborough Players would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2014. We thank everyone who have supported our productions over the years – next year we celebrate our 10th anniversary which is amazing and we look forward to seeing you at our future productions.
Why didn’t the skeleton go to the Woodborough Players Panto?
He had no body to go with!
