CIVIC EVENT  and  BRASS BAND 23rd July 2017

A civic event will be held in St Peter's and St Paul's Parish Church at 12.45 pm on Sunday 23rd July 2017.  The theme will be 'welcome to Newport.'  Do come along and hear some heartwarming stories of a warm welcome being given to people in our wonderful town.  

After the service please bring a picnic to the grounds of Ousebank Gardens, and listen to the magnificent Olney Brass Band.  The Band starts at 2 pm.  No fires please as barbeques placed on the tables at Ousebank Gardens will burn the tables.  Please remember to take home all your litter. Enjoy the lovely summer with Brass by the River - another Newport Pagnell Town Council event.
