The approval of the masterplan followed an eight week consultation in which local people expressed their views on the plan and the options available to make Worksop the type of town centre people want to use and live in over the coming years.
The new Bassetlaw District Council facility will include a refreshments kiosk and outdoor seating, a second public Changing Places facility in Worksop, a disabled toilet, a baby change and parent WC in addition to four unisex toilets. It will be situated opposite the splash pool, within an area of the sensory garden.
400 years ago, the Mayflower Pilgrims left England and set out for America. A number of the most influential and important Pilgrims came from North Nottinghamshire and to mark its seminal place in the Mayflower story, the Sherwood Forest Trust will be planting 400 oaks at Hodsock Priory - one for each year since that historic sea voyage. With the kind permission of landowner, Sir Andrew Buchanan, the Trust will establish the ‘Pilgrim Plantation’.
