Newport Town Mayor
Councillor Peter Scott

Following the annual general meeting on Wednesday 15th May 2019, Members resolved to elect Councillor Peter Scott to serve as Town Mayor for a second term, municipal year 2019/20.

Newport Town Mayor Councillor Scott took the time to welcome the new members and returning members, and expressed his aspirations for the council members to work and support one another regardless of political persuasion for the benefit of the Newport’s residents.

We are also pleased to announce that Councillor Lyn Fowler was duly elected as Deputy Mayor for Municipal year 2019/20.

A busy start of the year for Councillor Peter Scott, Newport Town Mayor.

Peter has enjoyed a full of diary of key events and civic engagements since being elected for a second term as mayor at the May Annual Town Council meeting.

Some of the highlights of the year so far have included the Newport Carnival, opening of new shop premises for Newport Engravers, Newport’s History Day, Shrewsbury Town Council's Mayors Making ceremony, Opening of The Olde Tyme Market and many more.

In addition, Cllr Scott took great pleasure presenting two cheques of the value of £1153 each to Cottage Care Centre and Newport 1st Scouts, who were his chosen charities for the Newport Mayors Fund for municipal year 2018/19.

The following months look just as busy for Newport’s Mayor, including his Civic Sunday Service in September, details to follow shortly.




 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
