Chatsworth Farmyard is home to a number of the country’s rarest breeds of livestock and equines, including Suffolk Punch horses, Shire horses, Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs, Bagot goats and Cream Legbar chickens, with British Landrace pigs and Eriskay ponies due to join them soon.
The ‘BookBench’ sculpture trail, which has been organised by North Notts BID in collaboration with Wild in Art, a leading producer of spectacular public art events, will see 40 uniquely designed benches put on display across Worksop, Retford, Harworth and Tuxford for residents to find using a soon-to-be-released trail map.
Located on the old market square in Worksop, the free event aims to attract people to the town centre to enjoy a cornucopia of activities, including live demonstrations by celebrity chefs, competitions and entertainment. The festival will also include a mixture of artisan food market stalls so visitors can smell, taste and buy a selection of delicacies from local vendors.
A lot has been said about the need to minimise the impact on our children's education during the pandemic. However, did you know that the friendships, adventure and skills for life gained from organisations such as Scouting can be just as important?
Watching David Attenborough’s film ‘A Life on our Planet’ and meeting Bill Grimsey from ‘The Vanishing High Street’ when he looked at Worksop and Retford, it is clear we are at a tipping point where we will thrive if we focus on working with the natural world and how we can regain balance and true sustainability. This is the time to build back better and give everyone in North Notts a stake in our place and the environmental issues we know we can improve if everything we do is for our community. Localism on steroids is the best way we can all drive the economy from here.
