Reach Learning Disability is asking people to 'Save the Date' for their 2018 Christmas Appeal. Between 27th November and 4th December, the local charity is again participating in the Big Give Christmas Challenge - a national online matched giving campaign enabling every £1 donated by the public to be matched by another £1. So a donation of £10 becomes £20!

Have you ever wondered which Council does what in Southwell?

After the relative summer calm, the Southwell Lions are now back in action planning events for the next few months. The Macmillan coffee morning, where we supported the Rotary club, was again a success. Thanks to all of you who had a go on our Human Fruit Machine or tombola to raise a record amount.

After 42 years Southwell Preschool will sadly be closing its doors on the 26th October. We made this very hard decision because of diminishing numbers over the last year, this being due to losing a large part of our cohort at Easter and July this year.

This year marks the centenary of the armistice that ended the First World War. Local groups will be commemorating this with various local events and initiatives.
