Welcome home
For the second time in the last couple of years I have had to spend several months in the wonderful Newark Hospital with a recurring problem.

My treatment, on both occasions, by staff in the hospital was magnificent.

After being released I have been welcomed back by staff at Vale View Sheltered Housing where I live.

I would like to offer sincere thanks to the hospital staff and staff at Vale View.

Valuable asset
Newark’s reputation as a must-visit destination for real ale fans shows no sign of diminishing. The local branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) is rightly celebrating the success of the fifth Beermuda Triangle that was based in seven town centre pubs and offered more than 80 beers over four days.

But its members are also celebrating another achievement, having played a major part in securing a stay of execution for a pub that serves a community on the outskirts of town.

Newark CAMRA successfully applied to Newark and Sherwood District Council for The Sawmill, at the bottom of Beacon Hill Road, to be declared an asset of community value (ACV) which means it cannot be demolished for six months.

The move was in response to a planning application by Marston’s brewery to knock it down and replace it with a convenience store and non-food retail unit, which has yet to be decided by the council.
