The Newport & District Civic Society (NDCS) changes its name – and expands its horizons!

The Society is now called THE NEWPORT SOCIETY – its work and interests will continue to encompass all Newport’s villages and it will also cover wider and more current issues in its monthly programme of talks and events. It hopes that new residents of the town will join and/or come to see what it does and get involved in its activities. Everyone is welcome to the meetings which (mostly) take place on the last Tuesday in the month. You don’t have to join – although it’s only £10 a year – you can just turn up on the night and pay £2 – which includes refreshments.Most meetings take place at St Andrew’s Church Hall, Church Aston.

The NEWPORT SOCIETY’s next meeting is Tuesday January 26 – 7.30pm – at St Andrew’s Church Hall, Church Aston TF 10 9JG,

The planned visit to the Regional Food Academy at Harper Adams University – has now been rescheduled to the summer to allow for discussion on more current Newport issues.
Instead the meeting will be:-
