Richard durrant Stringhenge Tour by Bicycle comes to St Mary's Church 13 June

17th April 2018

On Wednesday 13th June there will be a charity concert at 7.30pm in St Mary's Church to support the work of The Sherwood Forest Trust. Tickets £15, Under 18's £5.

Concert guitarist and composer Richard Durrant is to tour the UK in 2018 as part of his Stringhenge album launch.
The ten date tour starts at St Magnus Cathedral, Orkney and finishes in Sussex on 21st June (midsummer's eve in) Brighton and Bexhill Festival on 22nd June. Richard will cycle between each concert on this three week, 1,000 mile, musical adventure and will play British folk music, Durrant originals and music by JS Bach.

Durrant cites the British landscape as the main inspiration for this tour and accompanying album Stringhenge (a double album available on vinyl, CD and download). But the instruments played at each gig also played a huge part in the formation of this project.

Says Durrant: I'm lucky to be playing what I believe to be the world's most beautiful concert guitar. It was made from 5,000 year old English Oak by the Lincolnshire Luthier Gary Southwell and the instrument feels like a sacred object. You will also hear my four string tenor guitar (the Uffington Tenor by Ian Chisholm) and a ukulele set aside purely for the music of JS Bach.

Thoresby Miners’ Memorial

9th October 2017

We have reported previously about the Parish Council decision to set up a fund to create a memorial to those miners who died working at Thoresby Colliery. A working group has been set up consisting of Parish Councillors and ex miners and representatives of mining families. So far, about £5500 has been raised through donations. A location has been agreed. There is a garden at the side of the Village Hall on Mansfield Road which is owned by the Parish Council. The tree (which is diseased) and the shrubs will be removed to enable the memorial garden to be created, which will include the memorial, seating and a plaque telling the history of the colliery. The fencing and retaining wall will be refurbished.

The Chair of the working group, Councillor John Peck said, "We now have a site which we will clear shortly. We will be obtaining quotes for a suitable memorial in due course. We are extremely grateful for the generous donations we’ve received so far, but we do need to raise more money to create a memorial garden the village can be proud of. We will be applying for further grants, but individual donations from Edwinstowe residents or businesses would be very welcome." Cheques can be made out to "Edwinstowe Parish Council" and sent or dropped in to the Parish Council Office.

Dog Fouling

21st February 2017

Dogs are valued members of families, companions and friends to many. They should not cause serious problems for others but thousands are received every year by council dog wardens accross the country. The most common complaint? Fouling.

Dog dirt is unpleasant, smelly and may carry diseases and parasites which can affect both humans and dogs alike. Leaving your dog's mess in public places is an offence against the law and you can be fined up to £1000.

Newark and Sherwood District Council dog wardens are giving offenders Fixed Penalty Fine: DON'T BE ONE OF THEM!


Nottinghamshire County Council Statement - Fracking and Sherwood Forest

Sally Gill, Head of Planning at Nottinghamshire County Council said: "Any reports of fracking in Sherwood Forest are without foundation.

Conservation of its ecology and natural habitats are paramount and the County Council will do everything in its power to ensure its heritage and conservation is protected now and for future generations."
