The Hub in Retford is now almost three years old, and, since opening, has returned over £50,000 to the local community. The pie chart adjacent shows where the money goes.
15,000 hours of volunteer time has gone into making this a viable and thriving concern. Volunteers, both young and not-so-young, have worked hard to provide local tourist information, to provide a showcase and outlet for local artists and artisans, and to sell local foods.
If you have not yet visited, do come to see what is on offer, look at the exhibitions in the gallery, and the Mayflower Pilgrims Museum, and have refreshments. You will be assured of a warm welcome.
