Newport Pagnell Town Council promised to keep residents informed as soon as we heard anything about Tesco. We have been informed by Milton Keynes Council that Tesco have applied to start pre-commencement of build operations, and that they have started work on this project. Whether this means the store will go ahead, or they are just beginning ground works to keep the planning application alive is as yet unknown.

P R E S S R E L E A S E
Newport Pagnell Town Council is delighted that the town has once more managed to achieve a Silver Gilt award in this year’s Britain in Bloom, despite the fact that the rules have changed and we have now been placed in a category with much larger towns than our own, most of whom also have much larger budgets with significant numbers of grounds staff working on their project. A great deal of the work undertaken in Newport is done by a small group of volunteers who dedicate their time to ensuring that this project goes ahead, and huge thanks must go to John Smith and the Partnership Gardening Group for their efforts in achieving this prestigious result.
However, commendations must also go to the schools for their contributions, particularly Ousedale School for their outstanding eco-centre, and to Councillor Sidebottom and Simon Baines who manage the all-important horticultural show.
In presenting the award the judges commented as follows: “A real sense of pride was displayed by our hosts. This was clearly well placed with residents doing their bit to add to an already well cared for and welcoming town.” They added that the baskets and tubs provided by the Town Council are magnificent this year, and do much to enhance the High Street, and they were pleased to see that individual contributions from residents and businesses go towards extending these each year.
SPONSORSHIP FOR TOWN FLOWERS
If you would like to sponsor a basket the cost is £77.25 per basket. This covers the cost of the flowers, watering and maintenance. However, even much smaller donations are appreciated. If you would like to sponsor or would like more information please contact the Town Clerk, by email TownClerk@newport-pagnell.org.uk or telephone 01908 618756.
Names of sponsors will be displayed on the plaque outside the Council Offices and on our website and facebook pages.
