The most wonderful time of the year in Bawtry!

We hope, when you settle down with a cuppa to read this, that Bawtry is back open for business! Whatever happens, our trees will be up, windows dressed, and our stunning light displays will be adorning Bawtry’s High Street.

Sincere thanks go out to China Rose for sponsoring once again the towns fantastic 20ft Christmas Tree on Market Place. Our optimism continues to shine through, and we cannot wait to welcome you back to our special town this Christmas.

Resourceful and resilient

During Lockdown 2.0 many businesses have had to adapt their retail methods to encompass online, postal and click & collect services including Bawtry’s fashion boutiques Bawtry Shoe Company, Incognito, Revolver Menswear, Robinsons & Yasmine of Bawtry. Please check out their social media pages for up to date information & virtual tours of their current stock and offers.  We are keeping everything crossed that they will be allowed to open their doors once again this Christmas.  Our independent retailers have some amazing gifts perfect for family and friends, ranging from designer clothing to diamond jewellery and home accessories to artwork. Many of them, including our quality bars & restaurants, are offering gift vouchers too so that shopping, dining or overnight stays can be enjoyed in the New Year.

Ten years and counting!

It’s 10 years since current Womacks of Bawtry owner David Womack, took the then owner Annette Womack, no relation, out to lunch and ten hours later had bought the business! David had always aspired to own the shop that bore his name and ten years on, not only does it prove that dreams do come true it also proves that things happen for a reason! Now, displaying the most amazing shop front on the high street it is a constant source of wonderment at all times of the year, but never more so than at Christmas.
