What’s on at Retford Hub

by | 1 September 2018 | Community facility, Community Focus, Hobbies

This summer Retford Hub has seen an increase in visitors to Retford, and as the only Tourist Information Centre in North Nottinghamshire it has been our goal to ensure visitors receive information in a welcoming and efficient way.
Retford Hub is excited to announce that we now have the Games Workshop franchise and will be starting a Games Club for children from 11 to 17 years old in October. This will be an opportunity to play a variety of games, including modern and traditional board games as well as discovering the Games Workshop products. There will also be tournaments starting in October. If you would like to get involved, please contact us at chris@retfordhub.org.
The Hub has been nominated as the Charity of the Year by King & Miller on North Road. They will be supporting The Hub by collecting money for window blinds, a sink for the artists and proper hanging rails for the staircase. A Family Fun Day was held in August, a bike ride is planned for the end of September, and there are other fundraising activities, including a 100 square (monthly raffle). Why not pop in, have a pint of Carling and support this local community venture?
