MANY PEOPLE in Southwell were grieved to hear of the death of Miss Doris Dowse on 27th August. Her death brought to an end an era of the town's history which began in July 1884.

SOUTHWELL Town Crier Henry Howard was presented with a new bicycle by John Matthews, Community Service Committee chairman, Southwell & District Lions in early August, to replace his ageing machine, and in recognition of Henry's support in Lions fund raising events.

OVER 1,000 people joined the Sport Aid "Race Against Time" in Southwell on Sunday 25th May. Organisers Bill Johnson, Paul Best, Jim Munro and Tony Warwick were delighted with the magnificent response, particularly as the idea and organisation for the Southwell race was only conceived a week before the actual event.

THE cheerful crowd pictured are the mainstays of the not-so successful-this-season Ladies Squash team!

TWO children from Lowe's Wong Junior school, Simon Forshaw and Kate Hurst, attended Southwell Parish Council's March meeting to be congratulated on their winning designs for a Parish Council Logo.
