Retford Against Racism

Retford Against Racism (RAR) is a predominantly online group that grew out of the local controversy around the voluntary removal of the Black Boy pub sign last summer. At the time this led to an increase in racist posts and comments on the local social media groups, which gave an alarming sense of the prevalence of racist attitudes. read more

Retford Civic Society

Some years ago, Retford Civic Society (RCS) reinstated the pawnbroker’s golden balls on the side of the building that is now the Salvation Army charity shop. Recently, they have been refurbished. Sadly, the other day an RCS member noticed that one was missing; presumably it had come loose and fallen off in the high winds. After a search yielded nothing, the fear was that it had gone for ever, and RCS would have to have another one made. read more

Ryton Chorale

Ryton Chorale

With the lack of any concerts, Ryton Chorale, like most other choirs, can’t presently meet in person, so they are again working on music for a YouTube performance. After the success of the Christmas carol concert, complete with seasonal pictures and a collage of choir members taking part, a similar format is to be launched on 31st March.
This time the music will be the much loved classic ‘All in the April Evening’, by the Scottish composer Sir Hugh Roberton. He was Britain’s leading choral master and founded the world famous Glasgow Orpheus Choir in 1906.
Challenging times call for innovation and development. Thanks to Ryton’s Director of Music, Simon Lumby, and his technological expertise the choir has risen to the new challenge. Make a note of the launch date, 31st March, and register a ‘like’!
