With closure of county-funded Retford Tourist information facilities in early 2014, Retford Business Forum initiated discussions seeking alternative provision.

The result is Retford Hub which opened in May 2015.  It not only provides Tourist Information for Retford and the local area  but also a wide range of local artisan and art-focused products and facilities.

John Harris is now Retford Hub’s resident artist. Click on John’s photo for much more.
