Coun Julie Leigh, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods at Bassetlaw District Council, said: “It was a fantastic event and the perfect way to mark the 80th anniversary of the Canch and the Memorial Gardens.

“We’ve had some really positive feedback from families who went and we’re thrilled that so many people came out and helped us to celebrate.”

She added: “We were also able to speak to hundreds of people as part of our consultation on the future plans for the Canch, and as part of our engagement events that have been running this summer. If you would like to fill in our survey please visit the council’s website.”
