Plans to transform Southwell's flood defences as part of a £5m Flood Alleviation Scheme is gaining momentum.

Adults with learning disabilities, staff and volunteers at Reach Southwell and Flower Pod are busy getting ready for their Big Give Christmas Challenge Week from 27th November to 4th December when donations to the charity will be worth double.

Santa will be busy again this year with his many helpers. Due to new housing developments in both Southwell and Farnsfield, the routes have been changed a little, and we hope that we are able to cover all the streets listed by our shut off time of 9pm. Due to the many children we see, all timings are approximate, so please bear with us if we are not quite on schedule.

The Southwell Traders look forward to welcoming customers old and new to their annual Christmas Late Night Shopping Evening on Thursday 29th November, 4.45pm to 8pm.

One hundred years since the guns of World War I fell silent, Southwell Minster commemorates all those who lost their lives, including over 100 men from Southwell. The Cathedral also pauses to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in World War II and all wars since: We will remember them.
