Wonderful walk
Congratulations go to Farndon Parish Council, various trusts, the many volunteers and others who have created and maintained the nature and wildlife reserves around the village.

With the sun shining brightly I recently set off from my home and walked across Sconce and Devon Park to Devon bridge.

The first public footpath on Farndon Road leads to the Trent, passing in front of Trent Villas and on to Farndon Mill.

Here, and beyond, the flood plain meadows are enriched by a colourful display of wild flowers.

Festival return
IT SEEMS certain that Newark Festival will return in 2015. The feel-good factor with people having a good time and the community coming together, plus the all-round benefits brought by an influx of visitors to the town generated by this year’s event, were reasons enough for that to be the right decision.

The set-up is likely to be similar, with the town council contributing towards the cost and the Liz Hobbs Group being responsible for ticket sales.

It is conceded that lessons must be learned from this year’s event.

Complaints arising from The Human League concert on the Saturday night, including a lack of toilets and long bar queues, should be taken on board.
