Ollerton WI

Ollerton WI are doing really well at keeping their group together in this difficult time. Unfortunately, things like their walks, and little get-togethers have had to stop again for a while, but they still keep in touch through the phone, newsletters and, of course, Zoom. They’ve had a James Bond quiz which was very good and very well attended – with some members on Zoom while others got the quiz on paper through their doors so they could still join in. read more

Edwinstowe Historical Society

One hundred years ago when witnessing the unveiling of the war memorial at the Crossroads, little did the residents of Edwinstowe, a quiet agricultural village, realise how their way of life was to change when a coal mine was sunk on the outskirts of the village.

Retford Textile Group

Mother’s Day gifts don’t have to be expensive… what’s appreciated more is the thought and effort that has gone into creating something personal and special. With children at home at present why not get them on board to create something unique for a special granny / nanny they may not have seen for some time? read more

It seems incredible that it is a year since the Dukeries u3a members were able to meet for their monthly members’ meetings. However, these past 12 months have given them the opportunity to learn new skills in IT, allowing them to continue to meet safely at home using Zoom.
