The Huthwaite Community Action Group is a team of volunteers, first grouped and chaired through earliest years of 2000 by former Notts County Councillor David Kirkham. Annually elected members evolved into an influential committee, thereafter under Chairman, Mr Eric Bone, 25 Sherwood Street. Tel: 06123 517933
Updates concerning next meeting arrangements, relevant contacts and current issues are publically displayed among their new notice boards sited around the village. Regular attendance is made by local Ashfield District Councillors, ably and independently willing to jointly assist through elected roles. The executives invite talks from Community Wardens and the police while liasing between various other professional bodies including support workers and carers.
Agendas frequently raised security measures, awareness of crime and antisocial behaviour in local hot spots. Busier highway safety, improvements in services and facilities are common topics, while annually funding popular youngster attractions upon Brierley Forest.
Action Group volunteers take credit for starting this information service from November 2012. Poppy's Pet Shop at 201 Sutton Road, opposite Huthwaite Library, hosts and displays all relevant details about advisory clinics, aiming to cover services like:-
