The community around Edwinstowe and Sherwood Forest is being offered the opportunity to hear about the proposed redevelopment of the Sherwood Forest visitor centre at Forest Corner.

Nottinghamshire County Council (NCC) and the RSPB-led consortium are holding two drop-in sessions on 5 and 9 January at Edwinstowe Library. This is a chance to meet Ross Frazer, RSPB project manager and Derek Higton, NCC Service Director, Youth Families and Culture Division to discuss how the centre area will be designed and share any concerns and ideas before plans are created in early spring.

The two events are being held at Edwinstowe Library, High Street, Edwinstowe (NG21 9QS) on Tuesday 5 January from 2pm to 5.30pm and Saturday 9 January from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Ross Frazer, representing the RSPB-led consortium, said: “This is an opportunity to come and hear about the project and ask your questions before we pull together our detailed plans. Please be aware that detailed plans have not been drawn up and will not be available at these events.”

Key facts 1) Edwinstowe Cricket Club and ground will remain 2) Car park charges will continue to be applied and access to the National Nature Reserve and Visitor Centre will remain free 3) Responsible dog walking will continue to be welcomed 4) Access to Edwinstowe Cemetery will be maintained
