The Mayflower Pilgrim
Visitor Centre and Museum opened in May 2017 in Retford. It is the first Museum
dedicated to the Pilgrim Fathers who originated in North Nottinghamshire.
The Centre was opened by
John Handley, Chair of Nottinghamshire County Council.
John Mann, M.P., was in
attendance, together with Madeline Richardson, Mayor of Bassetlaw and many other
Councillors, local dignitaries and project supporters.
The Centre was built by a
team of local volunteers, organised by the Retford Hub. We are grateful to
Richard Copely Bains who provided invaluable support and information and
also Adrian Gray, Sue Allan, Rick Brand and Anna Scott.
The Centre is staffed
entirely by volunteers with the aim of telling the story and improving the
prosperity of Retford and the surrounding areas.
