We Need You, Your Family and Friends to Support Newport’s Green Spaces!!


As part of Telford’s 50th birthday celebrations, Telford & Wrekin Council is launching the second phase of its Green Guarantee scheme with the Big Green Vote.

Not only will we be protecting 96 new sites from development, but through a public vote, 50 of those sites will be awarded support of up to £1,000 to enhance the places that mean the most to residents.

Newport has three Green Spaces that need your support,

Broomfield Place, Mason Place and Norbroom Park.

So Come On Newport Residents – Get Voting!!


Voting is easy, simply register and cast your five votes for the places you would like to see supported, you can even share your pictures and comments and tell them about your favourite places. You'll also be able to opt into a prize draw where you could win prizes such as a garden wildlife hamper.

You do not need to be a Telford and Wrekin resident to vote, this is ideal as friends and family who live outside the borough but visit and use the green spaces can vote too.

The type of support will depend upon the site, for example in woodlands you might want to see some new saplings, open areas may benefit from planting schemes with new seeds and bulbs or bat and bird boxes to encourage more wildlife to the area.





NEWPORT Community Police Drop-in Surgeries

@ The Guildhall,

Every Friday 11am to 1pm on-going.

This is a chance to meet some local police officers who cover the area and speak to them about your problems and concerns. Whether you want to report a crime, give them information or seek advice. Their aim is to be a local point of contact, providing our communities with local, timely and accessible information about crime and disorder problems and how local policing and community safety initiatives are responding to them.

We understand that the times may not be suitable if you work Friday daytime, however Fridays are Newport’s busiest shopping day, and the Police are always available via 101 or there website.
