 Newport Civic Sunday


Cllr Peter Scott the Mayor of Newport would like to thank all of those who came to the Civic Sunday Service on Sunday 16th September. 

“It was a wonderful parade and service we had on Sunday, my thanks to the three speakers, Alan Lloyd of Nova FM, Jane Brooks from Rotary Lite and Nick Jeggo from the Newport Cycling Club. The entertainment from Achoired Taste and the wonderful Olivia from the Burton Borough School was top quality. It was also great to meet our new Reverend Merry Smith.”



 Newport Town Mayor Charity Appeal


Newport Town Mayors Charity Appeal 2018/19 to raise funds for Newport Cottage Care
and Newport First Scouts.

The target is £3000 over my mayoral year and I am hoping everyone will support the appeal.
The Cottage Care Centre is a much used and much loved facility that always needs financial support.
It enables many Newport area residents to receive various treatments and support locally and without it we would all have to travel much further afield.

The Scout Hut in Longford Road is a much used facility. We have applied for funding for a new roof from the Telford@50 Building Fund but still need monies for new heating and other refurbishment.
 If successful the hut will be a community facility for decades to come.

I am hoping that residents will support the appeal and help these two excellent Newport charities continue. There is a Go Fund me page and there will be some charity functions over the year.

Many Thanks Peter Scott
