Rural communities - Access to services

Bassetlaw District Council recognises the importance of building capacity in local communities to help them to deliver local services and initiatives they respond to locally identified issues.  We provide this support in a number of ways.

Misterton Centre & Library

The Parish Council is based at The Misterton Centre & Library,  High Street, Misterton. The Centre is operated in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council and Inspire. Bassetlaw District Council also provide some services at the Centre & Library.  Face to face enquiries about the Parish Council and Bassetlaw District Council can be undertaken.

Tuxford Mine Of Information

The Mine of Information, opened in 1996, is a resource and training centre and part of the UK online Centres.  It is based in a former redundant bank which was secured by a dedicated group of local people.  Since that time the building has been significantly developed and enhanced and is open five days a week.

A wide range of services are provided from the Centre, including ICT training, internet access, Welfare Rights information and Citizens Advice Bureau.  It is a base for the community car scheme, community newsletter, Parish Council Clerk, Police Contact Point, Rural Bassetlaw Befriending and a venue for MP’s and Councillor Surgeries.  It acts as a base for local information and assistance. 

Harworth and Bircotes

Joint work with the Town council on access to services through the Information Centre on Scrooby Road.
