25 Years Young - The Story behind Retford Charter Day

Categories // Seasonal, Business, General, Hobbies & Leisure, Community, Entertainment & Arts, Music, All Blog Items

25 Years Young - The Story behind Retford Charter Day

It’s hard to believe it, but Retford Charter Day is 25 years old this year (2018)!

It all started in 1990 with a meeting between 3 far-sighted local gentlemen, Mr. Richard Sutton who was there on behalf of the Scouts and the Retford Lions Club, Mr. Gordon Hamilton-Clark and Mr. Gerry Archer.  The first event they ever organised was the Easter Extravaganza which was held on the Market Square with just 6 stalls and a gentleman pushing a children’s roundabout!

Find out what's happening at Retford Charter Day, Monday 6 May 2019 here!

Kings' Park's 80th Birthday Celebrations

On the 29th June 1938 Retford gained, what we now fondly describe as "the jewel in the heart of the town", the beautiful Kings' Park.

Now, some 8 decades later, there are exciting plans afoot to mark Kings' Park's 80th Birthday.

Bassetlaw District Council, in partnership with EES Showhire and supported by Retford Business Forum, Retford Civic Society and other bodies, are inviting everyone to join them in celebrating the 80th Anniversary of this outstanding, national accredited, Green Flag site.

Hopefully your summer this year will be all about fun, laughter, enjoyment and good times and, to help you have the best summer yet, we’ve compiled a list of the many festivals being held this summer across North Nottinghamshire.
