Woodford weather forecast
There were 13 volunteers for the second Woodford Litter pick and the weather was very kind with sunshine and a light breeze. 15 bags of litter from around the village, the Shrubberies and the playing field were collected. A free hot drink and half price meal was provided at the Pickwick Tea Rooms. Thanks to all involved.

World War One Diary - Day by Day
Long standing residents of the village will no doubt remember the late Rector - Rev L E P De Casabianca (Rector of Woodford and Twywell 1957 -1980), but possibly less well recalled are Mrs De Casabianca's mother and step father who lived their twilight years in the bungalow at the west end of Church Street. Hubert Brown had fought in the First World War from the start of hostilities until 1916 when he was injured at the Somme. His war diaries are now being published on a daily basis, each day being put online exactly 100 years to the day following the recorded events. The diaries are somewhat vague in the early days but once mobilised become more descriptive.
Mr Hubert Brown and his wife Florence, were laid to rest in Woodford Churchyard in 1962.
