Parish Council Newsletter

The latest Parish Council newsletter has been published and is available to download.

Street Sports

Stop hangin' around and get into Street Sports. We are staging free street sports sessions every Tuesday for 10 weeks starting from 28 June between6-8pm on the MSPA on Wharf Road.

Pinxton Traffic Challenges

Thank you to those who responded to the survey about Pinxton's Traffic Challenges (27kb) published in the last newsletter. Out of 2,700 newsletters, 65 replies were received (less than 2.5% response rate).

With such a low response rate, the survey's impact is of limited significance, however, the responses could be seen as indicating the relative importance of our traffic challenges and act as a guide for any future engagement exercise.

Not every proposal was answered but perhaps the most frequently answered proposal together with the percentage in favour gives a flavour on how residents view its importance. With this in mind, and again stating this is not strong quantitative evidence, the top 3 are seemingly:

New M1 junction, New Road westwards towards A38, Greyhound Traffic Light system to include West End.

By a similar token, what is NOT seemingly favoured by residents is a one-way system for traffic.

The Village Inn

A warm welcome awaits you at The Village Inn which can be located inside the village hall on Kirkstead Road, Pinxton. Now open Saturday and Sunday lunchtimes as well as every evening from 5.30p.m.
