Local History     

Meets 3rd Thurs 2.15pm
Venue Flint Avenue Community centre - map
Details Hello everyone, we hope you are all keeping safe and well and coping with these unusual times. I hope you are all keeping your eyes open and noting any changes to local areas you pass through on your walks or in the car - maybe you ride a bike!! We have noticed a new property being built on Clipstone Road West between the traffic lights and Sherwood Hall Car Wash. Also in Warsop the old cinema is wrapped up, not for Christmas but because it is being demolished. There is a super big Father Christmas fastened to a house on Ellesmere Road , one of the larger properties. This is my first beacon email, just hope I have got it right! Wishing you all the best Christmas you can have and let us all look forward to a brighter 2021. Pauline & Malcolm
