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.

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!
