A specially commissioned piece of artwork was unveiled on Thursday 28th February 10.30am outside the HSBC Bank, in Carolgate, Retford, to mark the launch of the much-loved ‘Retford in Bloom’ campaign for 2019.  The sculpture has been created by local Artist and Designer, Kenny Roach, together with ideas and metal work from local students from the Inspire Learning Programme.
