New Ollerton
Ollerton and District Economic Forum (ODEF) is a community-based partnership organisation and a registered charity, which was formally constituted in 1994 to serve the communities of Ollerton and Boughton and the surrounding areas.

One of ODEF’s aims is to assist with the development of the area as a tourist destination and to support local businesses. The original idea for the ‘Ollerton and Surrounding Villages’ guide came from consultation with the community as part of the Market Towns Healthcheck. This website is an online version of the printed guide, which we hope will contain even more useful and interesting content.

ODEF offers a wide range of services to people and organisations in Ollerton and the surrounding villages.

Compiled by:
Louise Tarrant, Project Worker, on behalf of the ODEF Tourism Action Team. Village contributors: June Rowlands (Ollerton Village), Joan Seager (Boughton), Sylvia Pink (Edwinstowe), Janet Carr (Wellow), Mike Manning (Laxton), Derek Walker (Eakring). Historical assistance: John Marlow.
Thank you to:
All the people and organisations who have supported us with our guide.
