Lorry Watch is a scheme operated by Nottinghamshire County Council using local people to detect the misuse of weight restricted routes by heavy goods vehicles.
Cotgrave now has a 7.5 tonne weight limit on all approaches to the village. All appropriate signs have been erected. For the scheme to work successfully it will need the help of residents in reporting any overweight lorries they see.
The details you need are - place, time, date, vehicle registration number, name of the road and company owning the vehicle if possible.
Please bear in mind that although this applies to vehciles over 7.5 tonnes, large vehicles making deliveries etc will be allowed to enter.
Nottingham Astronomical Society (NAS) is based in Rushcliffe and is catering for ever-larger numbers of people in an increasingly popular hobby. They now have 100 members and meet monthly at the British Geological Survey in Keyworth. The Society has their own large telescope in an observatory near Cotgrave, and they take part in public outreach events where visitors (of all levels of knowledge in astronomy) can enjoy the night sky.
Every year the Anti-Bullying Alliance coordinates national Anti-Bulling week for all to come together with one aim - To stop bullying for all! This year Nottinghamshire County Council are offering a free workshop for local sports clubs to support this fundamental aim. The course takes place on Thursday 20 November from 6pm – 8.30pm.
The nights are drawing in which means the recycling centres (tips) in Notts will soon have shorter opening hours. From Friday 1 November, the 13 recycling centres across the county will open at 8am as usual, but will close at 4pm.
