the Western Front Association
Tim Chamberlin, the Chairman of the Nottingham branch of the Western Front Association is compiling a booklet on a list people in Aslockton who died in WW1 or whilst serving their country in other ways or conflicts. Shortly it is intended to add their names to the memorial in Aslockton Church and the booklet is intended to tell people more about who they were and what they did. He is writing to give a profile of the men lost but has scant details on some of them. Does anyone have any information/photos/newspaper cuttings relating to the men, their families or to events in the village during the two wars that would be worth recording in the booklet.
If anyone would like more information please contact either Tim Chamberlain firstname.lastname@example.org
or Graham Harper via this website contact page.

Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire
Five years ago Age UK Notts set up the Age UK Business Directory as a way to help protect older people from rogue traders. The Business Directory is a completely free to use service set up and run by members of Age UK staff. We currently have a list of over 200 traders and businesses all over Nottingham and Nottinghamshire who we have met with and thoroughly checked.
The directory is online to keep it up-to-date but it also has a Freephone number, which people can call and a member of Age UK Nottingham staff will happily search the directory for them based on their postcode, to find a local trader.
The service was designed with older people in mind but anyone can use it to put their mind at rest when finding a trader. We also find that a lot of people ring on behalf of an elderly friend, relative or neighbour so we need to make sure these people know about the directory too.
