Retford U3A

I wonder how many of you did what we did over New Year? This year we celebrated New Year’s Eve in Moscow, then went to bed. They are two hours ahead of us, so we were tucked up by 10.00pm. That’s very strange for us as usually we tend to celebrate New Year more than Christmas in our household. We catered for 10 people at lunch last 1s read more

Retford Golf Club

Sadly, the latest lockdown has meant that the Retford Golf Club is closed. The members are particularly disappointed as they had expected to be able to play in twos, as is the case in Scotland. Certain eminent golfers, eg Lee Westwood, are petitioning the Government to review the situation. So, watch this space! read more

Retford Bowling Green

For any summer sport, February is one of the quietest times of the year. That’s in a normal year but, as we all know, things are nowhere near normal so the usual winter social programme at Retford Bowling Green has ceased and there’s little to report. read more

Simply Snowdrops at Hodsock

Hodsock Estate

It is with a heavy heart that organisers have had to cancel Simply Snowdrops and the opening of the Hodsock Estate this year.  They know that their friends will be incredibly disappointed, as are they, but in light of the current lockdown situation and based upon the information released from the Government, they believe it would be irresponsible to open Hodsock to visitors. read more

The Dukeries Singers

I read today that primroses are the official flower of February, so when I venture out into the desolation that is our garden I shall have a search for them.

I can see the little green spears but I’m impatient to welcome the white nodding bells. read more
