A Worksop village woman has been fined for not clearing up dog mess. A woman from Carlton in Lindrick has been fined £200 for breaching environmental health laws. Unfortunately, dog fouling is still a problem here in the village, responsible owners clean up after their pets whilst others tend to look the other way. Dog wardens are increasing their patrols in the Bassetlaw areas to try and identify who’s at fault (certainly not the dogs). Don’t leave yourself open to a £200 fine, please clean up after your dog(s).


The date of the next Parish Council meeting is Wednesday 9th March at the usual time of 7:00pm in the Village Hall.

The craft fayre went ahead on Sunday 20th February 2022 in Barnby Moor village hall from 10:00am – 4:00pm, despite terrible weather conditions. A wide range of stalls by local crafters were there to tempt prospective buyers. Refreshments were readily available, with many visitors making it their first port of call when entering the venue, mainly due to adverse weather conditions. All proceeds from the event are destined for village hall improvements. Thanks to all who supported the event.



On Friday 22nd April 2022 the hall will be hosting its first Live and Local performance, Forget Me Not – The Alzheimer’s Whodunnit. This is a one-man murder mystery with a poignant twist. The show creator and performer, Rob Gee, has achieved the rare feat of combining serious and potentially upsetting subject-matter and remarkable comedy into a respectful, considerate, entertaining piece of theatre.

Tickets will be £13.50 each in advance.

Visit the Village Hall website for more details.


Following on from the successful Funhouse Comedy Club event last October, compère Spikey Mike will return on Friday 20th May 2022 to introduce a further 3 comedians.
