TIER 3 - How to Make it a November to Remember in Retford


The clocks have gone back, and November starts on Sunday.

We are all in it together with Tier 3 restrictions, but there are some things we can all do to make it memorable.

Fireworks Evening

It’s undoubtedly going to be a different kind of Bonfire Night on 5th November. Authorities all across the UK are expecting a lot smaller, back garden, family events due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Why not stay at home and make it a very special family occasion.


The annual festival of the moustache takes place this month. Movember has grown rapidly (pun intended) since it started in Australia in 2004. It has its roots in Melbourne where two friends convinced 30 mates to go with the mo.

It’s a fun way to add some fur to your face and raise funds for men’s health charities.

Remembrance Sunday – 8th November

With the Remembrance Parade being cancelled and social distancing measures in place, it will be different this year for everyone.

Everyone across the country is urged to do their bit from home, either by watching events on television or taking part in a two-minute silence from their doorsteps at 11am on Sunday 8th November 2020.

The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal will be severely affected this year in the present climate.  Because of Covid-19, we all need to do something different to pay our respects and to honour the fallen.

Please make a donation online and/or share this link to anyone you feel maybe interested in making a donation. Every £1 helps.

The British public can raise money when they really want and I’m sure we in Retford will do our bit as usual.

Lest We Forget


Christmas Shopping Lists – Shop Local in Retford

Let’s face it 2020 has been a year to forget so any excuse to take our minds off things must be welcomed. And what better way to do that than to start making your Christmas lists?

You could even set yourself a challenge and see what is on your list that you can buy from local shops and businesses in Retford. So all those last minute men out there have no more excuses for doing last minute shopping. Go early for once and get those extra special presents sorted.

Family Movie Nights

Now the dark nights start at 4.30 pm and the weather’s getting colder it’s the perfect excuse to get cosy on the sofa and watch a movie with your family.

Agree on a theme for the night. It could be sci-fi, western, comedy or even romance.

Make sure you have plenty of cinema-style snacks handy like popcorn, tortilla chips, sweets etc.

Create your own tickets – the kids will love making their own cinema tickets that need to be shown to ensure a seat in time for the big movie.

There’s plenty to do across Retford in November if we put our minds to it.

Whatever you do, have fun, and stay safe.
