To book a place, call Steve on 07876 213028 or e-mail heartstartfvfr@btinternet.com. Places are limited so get in touch quickly!

Crossing Closure

North Carr Crossing will be closed from Friday evening to Monday morning for three weekends: 18th-21st and 21st-28th July, and 1st-4th August. This is to renew road markings at the level crossing.

Food Bank Thanks

A special ‘thank-you’ service for all those who have donated provisions to Bassetlaw Food Bank will be held at All Saints’ Church on Sunday 29th June at 10am. Two speakers from the Food Bank will talk about their work and the people they have been able to support. Refreshments will be served after the service. So far, 363 carrier bags of provisions have gone from Misterton and three other local churches to the Retford base. People picking up food parcels can now do so from The Misterton Centre instead of having to go to


Sign-Posting Scheme

The First Contact scheme uses a simple checklist to help people aged 60 or over receive services to keep them safe and independent in their own homes. If a staff member from any of the partner agencies, such as a firefighter, police officer or volunteer, goes into an older person’s home, they will complete a checklist to find out if they have any other needs for: a home security check, any repairs or mobility adaptations that need doing in the home, energy-saving improvements to keep warm and reduce energy bills, confidential advice on any money the householder may be entitled to, crime reduction advice, signposting to local community transport schemes, signposting to local voluntary and community groups and clubs and advice on different types of housing accommodation that may be available. For more information please contact: Jayne Bullock at Bassetlaw Action Centre on 01777 709650 or e-mail: jbullock@bassetlawactioncentre.org.uk. The Misterton Centre is affiliated to BAC so information is also available there – call in or ring 891872.
