Woodend Village News

Your business or community group here.

I decided to start this Woodend Village online Newspaper because being relatively new in Woodend, there is a lot of information missing. I dont intend to charge anyone for advertising their business, events or community groups, although I do have a few caveats, those being, you must be a small local business, I will not advertise Real Estate agents (if you cant find one in woodend you must be blind.) So if you are a local cutting down trees, a plumber or a community group  please send me a message with you group/business name, your name and contact number.

 Woodend village website is sponsored by Glowgolf Docklands.
