Local Park Benefits From Name Game

Vicar Water Country Park in Clipstone could benefit from new visitors after those living nearby gave compartments of the park names, so they’re no longer known by numbers.

Locals were invited to offer their suggestions so that each area had a name associated with the park and it’s local history.

To mark the new names, nine native oak trees, one for each area, were planted along with around 120 other smaller native trees which will gap-up hedges as they grow – thanks to funding from a Greenwood Community Tree planting grant.

Matt Smith is a countryside ranger and Newark & Sherwood District Council “The main idea was to give our different areas of woodland different names. We had impersonal names like ‘compound one’ etc, and so we thought it’d be a nice idea to get the local community involved.”

“It’s been good, it gives people a bit more involvement and a bit more of a belongingness to the site. Hopefully it gives people more of an idea of where we are and what we’ve been doing in those sort of areas.”
