Retford Guardian

The Retford Guardian is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the North Nottinghamshire town of Retford (or East Retford) and its surrounding area in the District of Bassetlaw.

It was established in 2005 as the Retford Trader & Guardian, a successor to the Retford edition of the Worksop Guardian. It assumed its present title in January 2013, although the old title still appears in places on the website.

It’s published by North Notts Newspapers, which in turn is owned by major local newspaper publishers Johnston Press. The editorial offices are in Worksop and are collocated with the Worksop Guardian.

It comes out on Thursdays.
