Woodhouse summer fun event

MANSFIELD Woodhouse residents are urged to celebrate the centenary of Yeoman Hill Park at the village’s annual summer event.

The Friends of Yeoman Hill Park and Mansfield Woodhouse Community Development Group’s Village Social and Fundraising Group have come together for the event on 21st June, 12noon-4pm.

It is 100 years since the Duke of Portland gave the park to local people. It is now owned and managed by Mansfield District Council, which works in partnership with the Friends group to make improvements.

There will be attractions for all ages, including bands like Harmonybeat and Welbeck Brass Band, singers, climbing wall and slacklining, play and crafts activities. Demonstrators will include a wool spinner, Mansfield Mines Rescue Station, vintage cars and vehicles.

The friends group stall is focused on finding out what the people of Woodhouse want from a piece of public artwork it has planned for the centenary year. It also wants to talk to people about their memories of the park in years gone by.

Other stalls include Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, a local blacksmith, stalls run by schools and Saville House school choir.

The first 200 visitors to the event will receive a free birthday cake.
