Welcome to your daily round up of all today’s important stuff from Retford and beyond.

Sleeps until Christmas Day... 22!!


Mostly sunny with highs of 11 degrees C!


Slight delay on Chancery Lane in Retford closed northbound at the West Street junction, because of roadworks.


Bassetlaw Museum: Rural Bassetlaw in Watercolour. Runs to 3rd December. The first style is represented by paintings by J. W. Baldock, a Victorian artist who lived in the Worksop area, and by his grandson C. Baldock. On display are also two recent acquisitions by these artists. The second of the two styles in the exhibition is contributed by 21st century artist Liz Hayward. Showing their works together will enable the visitor to make their own comparisons in the theme and techniques used to capture the rural world.


Q: What do you call people who don’t like Santa?

A: Claus-trophobic!
