The Dukeries Singers

Welcome to winter and a quotation from Marie Huston: “The gardening season officially begins on January 1st and ends on December 31st”. So, if like me, you fortunately have a garden, you still have a few more weeks to finish your autumn clearing. Good luck with that! Even with help, we are still waiting for decent weather that will allow our lush green meadow to be transformed into a lawn – in December? Mmmmmm! read more

Retford Bowling Green

Here we are in December after a very strange year. The limited bowing regime has continued and, thanks to Match Secretary Trevor Lewis’s efforts, there have been seven knockout competitions which culminated in finals on 11th and 12th October. This marked the end of the season, such as it was. On Tuesday 14th October a good band of volunteers turned out to lift, clean and store the ditch mats and generally tidy up for the winter. read more

Retford U3A

We have had the most peculiar year. I will probably be the first chairman of Retford U3A who in his first year will never hold a ‘live’ meeting.  I am not totally convinced there will be a meeting in my second year either. We will be holding our second electronic AGM next March, and there is no guarantee we will be back to normal by March 2022. What a thought! read more

Rotary Club of Retford

Zoom technology allows members of the Rotary Club of Retford to have regular contact with each other. It is more than half a year since members were able to meet face-to-face. Zoom also helps the charitable work of the club, meaning that this can continue albeit without the normal marvellous support of the public now that fundraising events cannot take place. If you can still help, please contact the club through www.retfordrotary.net. read more

The Wednesday (Memory) Group

Much as we’d all like to hear some good news as Christmas approaches, there seems to be very little of it on the horizon. Always, as we think things are about to improve, they seem to take a turn for the worse again and although the Wednesday (Memory) Group has done its best to keep contact with members by holding small, informal gatherings in gardens when it was allowed, they are no longer able to do that. read more

Roy Evans

Everybody, we are told, has a book inside them and everybody at some time or other has a frustrated writer inside them trying to get out. So, what do you do after retirement? In my case I decided to write a series of 10 books.
I was brought up in Hertfordshire and in the 1950s we had two of the major aircraft manufacturers in the country only a few miles away from where I lived. read more
