The Parish Council meeting due on 12th May has had to be rearranged due to government legislation. For the last 12 months due to Covid-19 we were able to meet via remote means however from 7th May we will be unable to do so and our meetings need to be held physically.

Due to this change, running alongside the current covid rules the plan is to hold the meeting on Wednesday 26th May at 7.30pm in Newton Village Hall.

The meeting is open to everyone, but we ask if anyone wishes to attend they let us know in advance, so that we can adhere to the distancing rules.

Please let the clerk know if there are any items to go onto the agenda and if there are any changes to the meeting we will let you know in advance

There is to be a large convoy of vehicles on Monday 15th march heading over Waddington Fell through Newton to Slaidburn. This is a trial run to see that the vehicles can safely pass through. If there is a good result large machinery will follow the same route on Tuesday. Be prepared for slow traffic. Click here for more details

The Parish Council are asking all dog owners to be considerate when walking their dogs.

They ask that dogs are kept on a lead at all times when passing through fields when livestock are present. This is important at all times but especially at this time of year when sheep are due to lamb, dogs chasing them can cause them to abort and after lambing may cause the lambs to  become upset and separated from their mothers, sometimes even rejected.

Also remember to clean up after your dogs, please use the bins situated in the village or take it home to your own bins, please do not leave it in a bag tied to a fence. Leaving this in fields can affect livestocks health.


We seem to be having a lot more litter thrown onto our grass verges as more visitors have been coming into the area over the last few months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Some of our residents have suggested that as they are walking locally they are happy to pick up litter as they go along, in an attempt to keep our parish tidy.

The Parish Council have acquired some litter pickers . If anybody would like to join us in keeping the village tidy and become one of the Newton Wombles please contact Sandra Tel 448289 or email
