The local Lawn Green Bowling club hold matches, tournaments and practice meetings weekly.  If you are interested in “having a go” or wish to find out more about the club, please speak with the Parish Clerk who will forward your details to the Secretary.  

There are 2 Tennis Courts available to hire at a cost of £10 per key.  This gives unlimited access to the courts. 

The park also has a MUGA (Multi Use Games Area) used for basketball, netball and 5-a-side football.  This area can also be used by parents teaching their children the basics of cycling and those returning to cycling after an absence of a few years.  Please only use the MUGA for cycling if not being used by others for sports etc.  This is also an area that has been used for radio controlled cars.

The skate-park has several ramps for BMX bikes, scooters and skateboards.  Something for all ages and abilities!

GAR July flyover

Progress visible on new flyover

Remember the new spur road which was featured for the first time in last month’s flyover?

Well, it’s featured again in this month’s flyover, but may look quite different thanks to the carriageway surfacing and kerb laying works which have taken place in this area throughout July.

Other noticeable progress includes the continuation of drainage works up the hill from the Burton Road junction, surfacing works from the new 5-arm roundabout towards the new Mapperley Plains junction and earth works between Lambley Lane and the Willow Farm Estate.

Temporary Traffic Lights in Woodborough

Temporary traffic lights will be installed on Lowdham Lane from Monday 6th September to Wednesday 8th September between 9.30am and 3.00pm to install new drainage kerbs.

Calverton and Woodborough Allotment Association

Unfortunately our planned trip to the Malvern Show this year has had to be cancelled as it would not have been economically viable for the Association and there are still a number of uncertainties.  Hopefully we can get back to a normal program next year.

This year’s AGM is provisionally on Tuesday 19 October 2021 in the Calverton Village Hall at 7.00pm. Due to the uncertainty that still remains around Covid there will be no speaker and the meeting will be restricted to the business of the Association including the appointment of our Committee members.  We need more help on the Committee including a representative for Collyer Road and a Vice Chair.  We also need more help with the maintenance of the sites so if you can help in any way please contact me or come along to the AGM.

Members will soon be receiving their seed and potato catalogues and with these will be their allotment rent and membership renewal letters.  In previous years, members of the committee have been available, in the Parish Council rooms, to take both your allotment rent and Association subscriptions.  If we are able to do this then the information and dates when we will be available will be included in your pack.
