The Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest

The Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest are now well into the second half of their Rotary year and they are still meeting as a group, albeit using modern technology. Like many of you, they have found that social interaction has kept them going. It has been difficult to fundraise or become actively involved in projects during the current restrictions, but they continue to plan their calendar in the hope that they will be back in action soon. read more

The Dukeries Singers

It is now 12 months, or thereabouts, since The Dukeries Singers were last able to meet and sing together. When they had to stop meeting in March 2020, none of the members expected the enforced break to last this long. But, needs must, and now the vaccine roll-out is underway, at least they have a glimmer of light at the end of this long tunnel. read more

Ollerton WI

Ollerton WI are doing really well at keeping their group together in this difficult time. Unfortunately, things like their walks, and little get-togethers have had to stop again for a while, but they still keep in touch through the phone, newsletters and, of course, Zoom. They’ve had a James Bond quiz which was very good and very well attended – with some members on Zoom while others got the quiz on paper through their doors so they could still join in. read more

A century ago in Edwinstowe

Edwinstowe Historical Society

One hundred years ago when witnessing the unveiling of the war memorial at the Crossroads, little did the residents of Edwinstowe, a quiet agricultural village, realise how their way of life was to change when a coal mine was sunk on the outskirts of the village. In 1925 work began to sink Thoresby Colliery. The building of 500 colliery houses started in 1926 and was completed by 1931, attracting many new families. read more

Reducing our carbon footprint when travelling

-
Sherwood Forest Friends of the Earth

The Committee on Climate Change reports that the UK has fallen behind in progress to tackle and prepare for climate change – in fact, emissions from transport have increased by 6% since 2013 and are now 4% higher than in 1990. Vehicles have become more fuel efficient but this has been offset by increasing travel demand. read more

Mother’s Day makes

Retford Textile Group

Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to be expensive… what’s appreciated more is the thought and effort that has gone into creating something personal and special. With children at home at present why not get them on board to create something unique for a special granny / nanny they may not have seen for some time? read more

Dukeries U3A

It seems incredible that it is a year since the Dukeries u3a members were able to meet for their monthly members’ meetings. However, these past 12 months have given them the opportunity to learn new skills in IT, allowing them to continue to meet safely at home using Zoom. Members are looking forward to the time when the vaccine rollout enables them to meet in person. read more
