    Oakdale Studios Golden Acorns

    Vik Filep from Oakdale Studios talks about how he came to use the natural resources of Sherwood Forest creatively:

    As a child I was always told “money doesn’t grow on trees”, what a shame I thought, as we used to go on our regular Sunday “holiday” to the Sherwood Forest and we were surrounded by them, especially in the long hot summers we had way back then. There had to be a way for me to utilise this commodity and make some money from it. That was fifty or so years ago, and now I think I have found a way?

    Mansfield Museum to receive Lottery boost

    Mansfield Museum has been awarded a £23,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help re-develop the Arcade.

    The funding for the museum will help Mansfield celebrate and commemorate its industrial heritage, which includes Mansfield Brewery, coal mining, Shoe Co. and Metal Box.

    It is the next step in a very productive period for Mansfield Museum. The Museum, which is located next to Mansfield Palace Theatre, was recently voted Family Friendly Museum of the Year by the Guardian.

    Family walks, Daneshill Nature Reserve

    One thing I always like to do over the Christmas holiday period is get out and about in the fresh air. The over indulgence of Christmas always seems to me a little bit wasted once Christmas Day is over.

    This year, despite the wet and cold weather, I still managed to make it out with the family to Daneshill Nature Reserve a totally new attraction to me and somewhere I’d never been to before. We’d had the recommendation via the Kiddie Walks in Nottinghamshire book and having one child aged four and one aged two, the route looked perfect.

    I have to admit that Daneshill is the most northerly of the attractions in Nottinghamshire

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige. It sounded like a wonderful experience and I could think of much worse ways to spend my weekend. Wildlife walks take place each Sunday at Sherwood Hideaway…
