With Skateboarding being included in the Olympics for the first time at Tokyo 2020, it's no surprise it's become one of the fastest-growing sports worldwide.

On 18th January 2020 over 40 people from Southwell, Newark and Rainworth will unite at the Joseph Whitaker School to participate in a four hour long sponsored Drumfitt Drumathon to raise thousands of pounds for the Teenage Cancer Trust and John Eastwood Hospice.

Southwell Methodist Church would like to thank everyone who visited its annual Christmas Tree Festival and helped to raise £600 for the Southwell Pink Ladies Cancer Support Group.

Recycling your Christmas tree when the holiday season is over can help grow a greener future for Newark and Sherwood. Come Twelfth Night when the festive decorations are packed away, why not arrange for your unwanted tree to be picked up for a small fee with the proceeds being used to pay for planting whips and saplings around the district.

The British Food Fortnight National competition is now in its seventh year, and looks for the best community celebration of British Food.
