About In North Notts

Thank you for taking a look at ‘Our Story’.

It all started when, frustrated that North Nottinghamshire was ‘not on the map’ and that people have no idea what their neighbouring towns and villages had to offer, I decided to create a central hub and link to showcase all that is available and everything that goes on in the UK’s best kept secret, our lovely North Nottinghamshire!

Having lived in the Retford area for over 30 years I’ve seen many local businesses and facilities come and go and I feel that if we value them we need to support them, now more than ever.  It’s simple, 'we either use them or lose them'!

So, In North Notts is our way of helping you find everything that is good and going on in North Nottinghamshire - all in one place.

After a year of planning and hard work, along with our brilliant web designer, Jon Rogers of Createinn Ltd, who turned my ideas into reality, we launched the In North Notts’ What’s On Events website in 2015.

It’s become the region’s 'go-to' website for local events and things to do - for all ages and interests - in and around the Bassetlaw and North Nottinghamshire area with thousands of monthly web visitors looking for events and activities.

In April 2018, we introduced two additional directories – Classes & Courses and Clubs, Groups & Organisations - on our beautiful, brand spanking new website, and further directories are planned for later this year.

Like our original What’s On local events directory, the new Classes & Courses and Clubs, Groups & Organisations directories are totally free-of-charge for you to use and be showcased on, with the added bonus of extra support through our In North Notts' Facebook and Twitter pages.

We’re thrilled to provide our local groups, communities, businesses and organisations with a central place to showcase and promote themselves and their events for free, and proud to help put them all on the North Notts map.

We hope you find In North Notts useful and informative and we welcome your feedback and suggestions as to how we can enhance the website still further.  Just send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
