Quiz Night (24-2-12)

Quiz Night Not long now—just a week on Saturday.

That is when the Memorial Hall will be ringing with laughter and merriment together with just the occasional seriousness as adhoc teams struggle to answer a question.

If you love showing off your expert knowledge on any subject from Archeology to Zoo animals, then this is not the event for you!
On the other hand, if you just want a good night out with a quiz thown in as an excuse for fun, then look no further—you will be made most welcome. You don't have to be part of a team beforehand, you can become a member of one formed on the night.

Tickets are £5 (which includes supper) and are available from the Post Office or from Pam Barlow. The Hall will be open at 7pm and the Quiz will start at 7.30pm. Make a note:

Saturday 3rd March at 7pm at Memorial Hall

Thieves attack Allotments (14-1-12)

Last night, thieves broke into every one of the sheds on the Allotment Site. At this stage, it looks like they were after any powered machines stored there and it is known that they did indeed steal some.

Whilst most sheds did not contain machines, the thieves still damaged doors and locks. As a result, most plot-holders are going to have to carry out repair work. A few have lost equipment worth hundreds of pounds.

The new steel gates were not damaged and neither was its padlock.

The police are investigating the break-in. If anyone is able to help them with their enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact them.

New lease of life for Cotgrave railway line (12-1-12)

Four disused railway lines which served Bilsthorpe, Cotgrave, Calverton and Clipstone collieries are to be transformed into routes for walking, cycling and horse riding for the benefit of tourism, business and healthy lifestyles in Nottinghamshire.

The County Council is purchasing the lines from Network Rail to help create better links between recreational attractions and other countryside routes across Nottinghamshire and into Derbyshire.

The Cotgrave line will provide a new route between Cotgrave, Radcliffe on Trent and the Trent River path into Nottingham.

Having safeguarded the routes the expected cost to create the countryside links will be around £1.7m, which the Council is looking to fund mainly from external sources in the future.

Councillor John Cottee, the County Council's Cabinet Member for Culture and Community, said: "The new routes will help reduce congestion by encouraging people to walk or cycle when making short journeys and improve access to employment and training opportunities in built-up areas for rural residents."

Over £500 collected for charity (12-1-12)

The Mick Jennings Cup football match on Boxing Day was fun to watch but it benefited more than just the spectators. As a result, over £500 was collected from local people and donated to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation: click the Sport page to see the letter of acknowledgement from the Foundation.

Thank you to everyone who donated to this worthy cause.
Special thanks also to the people who made this all possible by organising the match and taking part on the day.

'One Day' — very soon (11-1-12)

One Day

Music and Song: are you going along? (7-1-12)

We are trying to raise £48,000 to develop the tower at St Giles to provide a toilet and small kitchen at the base of the tower and a raised floor for the bell ringers. All plans have been approved and we are ready to go once we have the money. We are also applying for various grants from suitable funders.

Several fund raising events are planned and some have already taken place. The concert planned for 28th January is one such event and will take place in church at 7.30pm. Please see attached poster for full details. Tickets are on sale now; from the Post Office and from Ann Mansell - 5, Clarke Close or 9892770.
