Beating the Bounds (May)

Usually five weeks after Easter on the Saturday before Rogation Sunday the Local History Society with St George's Church organise a walk around the Parish Boundary.

Beating the bounds is a centuries-old tradition, aimed at reminding everyone of boundaries that was important in their lives. During Rogationtide - the fifth week after Easter - villagers, with the rector and other local dignitaries, would walk the parish boundary. The children would carry willow wands to beat the boundary markers with, and in some ceremonies children had their heads bumped on boundary stones to imprint firmly in the memory.

Bonfire & Fireworks Display

The village bonfire and firework display is to be held on Friday the 3rd of November 2017 this year. The bonfire is lit at 6.30 pm with the fireworks display at 7.00 pm, (fireworks lasting about 20 minutes) The evening is supervised by Parish Council members and a team of stewards are in attendance throughout the evening. An assortment of refreshments are made available by several village groups including, hotdogs, soup, jacket potatoes, cakes, bonfire toffee and tea and coffee.

   

 Christmas Market

The Local History Society organise the 'party spirited', fundraising pre-Christmas Market on the first Saturday in December. The market is held in and around the Woodsetts Junior School Hall and trades from 10 am and closes at 1 pm.

The intention is to facilitate a venue and occasion for village organisations and groups to have an opportunity to raise money for themselves or a selected charity. Since it started in 2002 the event has proved to be very popular and a huge success with the groups that participate, raising much needed funds for their individual causes.
