When living in Worksop, the leisure centre I attended was a nice, community-based facility. It was great and I knew everyone. After the stroke my confidence was knocked, and I had low self-esteem. I wanted a leisure centre that felt more like a family, where I could fit in and get the same type of feeling I got from my previous centre in Worksop.
We receive enquiries about our collections from all over the world, and during the last few months we have answered e-mails from Australia, the United States and Spain. Last week I undertook some family history research for an octogenarian who now lives in rural France but was born in Grimsby’s West Marsh.
