Information for Residents
During the present coronavirus pandemic situation, the parish council is unable to hold normal meetings and has therefore decided that the
Annual Meeting of the Council
Annual Parish Meeting
both due in May should be cancelled.
The next meeting of the council is due to take place on Tuesday July 21. Information on this will be shown in the parish noticeboards and on this website in due course, but it is likely it will be a virtual meeting and therefore carried out on-line (and not in person at the Burnside Hall at Plumtree).
Further details on this will be posted before the date of the meeting.
Mike Elliott, Clerk to the Council, May 1 2020
About Normanton-on-the-Wolds Village
Normanton-on-the-Wolds is a small village six miles south-east of Nottingham, in the ecclesiastical parish of Plumtree, with which it has been associated throughout its history.
The name Normanton comes from the Old English Northman + tun, meaning "farmstead of the Northmen or Northern Vikings", and suggests a minority of Norwegian Vikings living in the area. The village can be traced back to at least 1086, as it appears in the Domesday Book under four entries.
The administrative parish of Normanton-on-the-Wolds covers Normanton-on-the-Wolds village and the surrounding farms and houses.
