North Notts Indies

North Notts Indies is a project introduced by North Notts BID to help support our independent businesses across Worksop & Retford town centres.

North Notts Indies

The aim of the North Notts Indies project is to create a vibrant community for the independent businesses of Worksop and Retford, showcasing them to both members of the public and the local business community.

The purpose of this project is to help to revitalise and reinvigorate our high streets following the after-effects of the COVID pandemic, the current cost of living crisis and other factors including the floods which have all had a huge impact on footfall into our town centres.

North Notts BID is proud to deliver the North Notts Indies project and to support such a wide and diverse range of independent businesses. Please see below to discover the fantastic businesses we have in both towns!
