Plans are now in full swing for this year’s Retford Charter Day event. The town, once again, will be buzzing with lots of entertainment on Monday 6th May.

Later on, the Lions’ Red and Yellow Duck Races will take place. Why not take the opportunity to have a try at green bowls and tennis. Lots of tempting food will be available all day and in the Buttermarket you will find a good variety of craft stalls. Also, open will be the Museum and Captain Jacks soft play area for children to use. There will be lots more to see.
