WOODBOROUGH LADIES

At their April meeting Woodborough Ladies were entertained by Graham Hayes speaking on ‘Nottingham Then and Now’ .

Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

Firstly I would like to say how sorry we are that this will be the last issue of the Woodborough Web and thank Michael for producing it month after month for so many years.  It will be missed by all the groups who used it to inform their members.

In preparation for the coming year the trading shed is fully stocked with canes, compost and all the requirements you need to manage your allotment.  There is also a range of power tools available for hire to make the preparation of your allotment site less demanding.  We are opening the trading shed every Sunday morning 10.00 ‘til 12.00am at the Bonner lane site.

Finally the maintenance of our sites is falling on fewer and fewer shoulders and we would welcome offers of help from other allotment holders.  This could be as little as an hour a month or simply give us your name so that we can occasionally call on you for help.  This is particularly needed for the Collyer Road/Lee Road sites.  If you can help in any way please contact myself or Tony Barton 0115 9655092 for a chat.

Woodborough’s ‘Just Sing’ Choir Supports Ukrainian Refugees

When Cate Drake heard a new song “Harbour” which tells of the plight of refugees, she decided that is was just the thing to encourage support of people fleeing war in Ukraine.
 
The writer of the song, Anna Tabbush agreed to the use of the piece, and Cate asked me (Michael Dobbs, your editor) to film the performance. You can see the result by clicking on the flag above or www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyx562Rtdhs&t=2s
