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!

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!
