Thank you to all who came along to the Newport Church Hall on 7th and 8th May to see our ‘Houses with a History’ exhibition. Thank you also to our volunteers who helped make the exhibition such a success. More than 550 people visited the exhibition over the two days and the money raised will help to keep this website running. We had lots of lovely feedback and we are glad that so many people enjoyed it.
50….. 100…… 150
The Queen has her Platinum Jubilee this summer , but here in Newport we have milestone celebrations too! Wormit Playgroup is celebrating 50 years this year, and they are planning a Birthday Festival on 11th June. Newport Amateur Football Club has reached the fine old age of 100. They will be holding a centenary tournament at Waterston Crook on 2nd July and later in the day a celebration evening in the Blyth Hall. And last, but certainly not least, the Newport Club will be celebrating an astonishing 150 years. Their festivities will also be in the Blyth Hall on 18th June.
All these organisations are planning displays showing old photographs, newscuttings and other memorabilia. They would love to hear from you if you have any relevant material. You can contact them at the facebook pages below, or email us here at email@example.com.
