The History of Retford Hub

The Council announced in late 2014 that the Retford Tourist Information Centre was to close following the same fate of all Tourist Information Centres in North Notts. A group of volunteers decided to create a new tourist information centre that was about much more, the people of the area. It would act as a showcase. What followed was a period of frenetic activity by numerous volunteers as the Retford Hub idea became a reality, and the centre was opened on May 4th 2015, just 12 weeks later.

Thank you to all those that helped either financially or volunteering and to our current team without whom the shop would not open. The life blood of the centre are our volunteers, the activities are varied, many of our volunteers are now trained in food hygiene and we provide other training such as tourism and till operation as required.

If you would like to get involved please contact us.  From a few hours to as long as you can spare.
