Nothing is free
Recent Advertiser headlines about a free school being planned for Newark did not fill my heart with joy, as I was always told that nothing in this world is ever free.
I agree that the number of students leaving Newark for schools outside the area is abhorrent, but to try to eliminate that with a free school is not the right way of correcting it. Free schools do not need the support of the county council to open and are funded fully by the Government. Free schools work independently of other schools and outside the local set-up, setting their own term times and the length of school days.

While nothing can ease the pain family and friends of Luca Cioci are feeling after his tragic death, they can take comfort from the instinctive response of his work colleagues and the wider community.
Luca, of Balderton, died in a road accident on the A46 on Friday. He was 23. He worked as a waste management operative at Newark and Sherwood District Council’s Brunel Drive depot in Newark where colleagues have launched a Christmas appeal for his partner, Katie Pitchford, and their two young children. The generous response in such terrible circumstances is heartwarming and a sign of Luca’s popularity among his workmates.
