Southwell Town Council's plan to brighten the town centre by displaying flags representing local voluntary organisations is now coming to fruition.

The recent hedgehog surveys in Southwell and Farnsfield conducted by Lauren Moore based at Nottingham Trent University, have come to a very successful close.
20 survey nights, 40 hedgehog boxes and 120 hours of hedgehog searching. The results are in!

A PIONEERING set of proposals to boost Newark's economy, creating a vibrant town centre that attracts tourism and investment, is one of the main focuses of Newark's 'Town Investment Plan,' which has been submitted to the Government by Newark Towns Fund Board.

Members of Southwell Community Archaeology Group have been supporting Philip Dixon, Consultant Archaeologist for the Minster, looking for possible finds by sifting through the rubble that has been lifted from under the floor of the Chapter House.

Home-Start Newark are now recruiting for Remote Family Support Volunteers to provide regular telephone support to local families who are experiencing tough times. Volunteers are needed to offer families befriending and a listening ear, and to help link families to any local services they need. Full free training will be provided via Zoom, so access to a computer or laptop with a webcam and microphone (or a smartphone) is vital. Our next training begins late September.
