The Woodborough Web

Welcome to the April 2021 Edition

What a long and dismal winter it’s been for most people, particularly the older ones, having no or little contact with friends and family for many months now.

Well, things are at last looking up! We are now able to meet a limited number of friends in the open air, and on the 12th of April we have even more luxuries such as haircuts!

Of course, these freedoms (and further ones down the line) all depend on the future infection results – so please continue to be sensible, taking the usual precautions and taking advantage of the vaccinations when offered. My wife, Kate, and I are due for our second jab during this month, and are very thankful for the rapid and effective programme of vaccinations in the UK – currently over 30 million at the time of writing!

Finally, obviously there hasn’t been a lot going on in the village for the last 12 months, and that means that’s it’s become harder and harder to find relevant material for the pages of the Woodborough Web. I have been greatly helped in this by a number of contributors who have managed to continue to send in articles and news items. My sincere thanks go out to all of you – and please keep sending in your material.
