Hi I am Sheila, a retired community mental health worker living in Edwinstowe which is a village nestled in the heart of Sherwood Forest. I’m a co-founder of a community group that wants to help and support our community in having a voice about the future of the village. Some friends and myself are trying to find out how our local council co-operates in allowing residents and groups to use the new community rights and powers given to them under the Localism Act 2011. So far this has not been well received by the parish council and they have turned very hostile, However we are passionate about paving the way for these new rights and even the responsibilities that go with them, to be accepted in our community.
