Heritage Open Day

with No Comments

On Saturday 16 September the station opened its doors to the public as part of the national heritage week events around the country. We welcomed almost a hundred visitors during the day, who were treated to exhibitions about the station’s history, its connection with Gedling Colliery and JRR Tolkein, its time as a youth club as well as a display focused on local history. Visitors were also able to view the proposed plans for the building and the “re-wilding” of the old five-a-side football pitch.

The event raised over £200 towards the renovation of the building through the sale of raffle tickets, tea, coffee and cakes. Huge thanks to the local businesses and individuals that provided raffle prizes.
