Latest News – November 2023

Our online shop

Our latest book ‘Lest we forget’ is now available from our online shop, along with Christmas cards, note cards, 2024 calendars and our other books. We can post these to you with a small charge for P&P, or deliver them free of charge in Newport and Wormit. They will also be available at our future events.
Calendars can also be purchased at Manna, Sutherland’s and Hutcheson Podiatry. Unfortunately we have just realised that the dates for January have been wrongly printed on the calendars. We do apologise and hope that it won’t spoil your enjoyment of our lovely calendars.

Our book ‘Houses with a History’ was produced in response to the huge demand for it at our Houses with a History exhibition and is full of fascinating facts about 79 houses in Newport and Wormit. It has proved so popular that it has sold out! We do however have some ‘seconds’, not quite perfect copies, available through our online shop at the reduced price of £6.50.

Poppy Project

2022 was the hundredth anniversary of the unveiling of the Newport, Wormit and Forgan war memorial. To mark the centenary, Newport History Group embarked upon an ambitious remembrance project, entitled Lest We Forget.
