The mother of a student rescued from a Turkish mountain after eight days says it is miraculous he is safe and well.
I was delighted with Chiel’s Comments on Newark Castle and the new National Civil War Centre as major and important tourist attractions for our town (Making History, Advertiser, January 15).
However, I was disappointed that no mention was made of another major, and important, tourist attraction, namely the magnificent Grade I listed Georgian town hall in the heart of Newark Market Place.
Along with 30 other volunteer guides, I show visitors around the superb John Carr building with its magnificent ballroom, civic treasures, art gallery and museum (which has free entry) six days a week.
This is a major tourist attraction, having around 6,000 visitors a year.
THE future use of an iconic Newark town centre building once more hangs in the balance. Honeybars Leisure Ltd, the company behind plans to re-open the Corn Exchange on Castlegate as a nightclub, says the £2m project is now on hold.
It follows a decision by Newark and Sherwood District Council to turn down an application to relax licensing restrictions so alcohol could have been served until 2.45am on Friday and Saturday nights.
Honeybars also wanted to be able to stage live entertainment until 3am at weekends and serve drinks in glassware until it closed.
News of the plans to re-open the Corn Exchange prompted fears of increased anti-social behaviour and noise nuisance for people living nearby. The police also had serious concerns about behaviour in the area.
