Terms and Conditions 

Coronavirus (COVID-19):

latest information and advice 

Newport Town Council have decided not to hold a Christmas Lights “Switch-On” event this year.

The council met last week to discuss the event. They decided unanimously that considering the recent government announcement, that it will November at the earliest before decisions on public gatherings can be taken, it is not possible to plan a Christmas event for this year. Therefore, in the interest of public safety, and whilst there is still concerns over large crowds, the councillors felt that the well-being of the public was paramount to all other considerations.

The Christmas lighting display will still be installed with an anticipated “switch-on” during the daytime of November 27th and will remain on for the festive period as usual. There will also be a Christmas Card Competition for the schools to enter, details will be announced very soon.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, Newport Town Council has decided to take steps to try and safeguard both our staff and residents.

The Guildhall will be open for essential business
Mon - Fri 10 am - 3 pm 
We do ask that face coverings are worn in the building
and government guidance is followed
