First Fun Friday of 2016

Happy New Year to all you Forest Town Nature Conservation Group (FTNCG) members and supporters.
A reminder that our first Fun Friday session down at Spa Ponds will take place this coming Friday, 8th January 2016. We will be gathering at the Clipstone Road entrance at 12 Noon, and we expect to be on site until at least 2 pm. Please join us if you can.
FTNCG fans may recall that Spa Ponds is to be included as a proposed “Local Green space” as part of Mansfield’s emerging Local Plan. Well, you can help this become a reality by taking part in Mansfield District Council (MDC) consultation exercise on the Consultative Draft Local Plan from 11th January to 22nd February 2016. This process will include a drop in discussion type event focussing in particular on the immediate area and wards of Newlands, Holly, Kingsway and Maun Valley. This event is booked for Kingsway Hall from 12 Noon – 4 pm on Wednesday 13th January 2016. You are free to drop in to this event at any time from 12 Noon. Happy to discuss this with anyone who might be interested.
Best New year Wishes,
Shlomo, on behalf of all of FTNCG’s Trustees
