There will be a consultations meetings in January about the idea of introducing a 20 mph speed limit on roads in Sherwood. It is hoped that the speed limit would create a more cycle & pedestrian friendly environment, improve air quality, reduce traffic noise, make the roads safer for children, streets will become more pleasant places to be and the potential reduction in the number and severity of accidents. The speed limit would need good support from the community to succeed. Meetings will be at the Sherwood Community Centre on 19th January 5.00pm to 8.00pm, and the Indian Community Centre, Hucknall Road on the 25th January between 6.00pm till 8.00pm.

Transition Sherwood is a group of local people coming together to help our communities become less dependent on fossil fuels, become more resilient, and reduce our impact on the environment. The group started in 2008, with an active group initiating a range of events and projects. This evolved into a smaller group concentrating on two community gardens from 2015.
Updates about local community and environmental events, and national and international climate change and environmental issues are currently shared mainly via our Facebook page.
Transition Sherwood is very pleased to be a member of the Nottingham Growing Network in 2016-17, with funding from the People's Postcode Lottery supporting sharing of skills and resources around a network of growing projects.
