About

Hello!

Welcome to our website - a dedicated resource which pulls together information from multiple sources to provide you with the latest news, updates, events, things to do and explore in our beautiful town of Newtown situated on the River Severn in Mid Wales.

Our Facebook page has been operating since August 2012 and we launched a website and mobile app in 2017. We have since re-branded in 2021 and a new site owner & editor took over in July 2022.

Our website is ran on a not-for-profit basis and is not a commercial enterprise - we do not have intentions to compete with other news sources in the area commercially. We have recently started testing adverts but these are controlled by Google Ads.

What sources do you get your information from?

We pull news automatically from sites operating in Newtown such as the Powys County Times and mynewtown.co.uk. We also write and source our own independent articles from a range of publicly accessible sources.

We also pull news automatically from Welsh Government, Powys County Council, nation.cymru, Newtown & Llanllwchaiarn Town Council and other third parties to bring you relevant stories and articles which apply to not just Newtown, but the wider county and nationally across Wales.

We always acknowledge the sources of these articles and will aim to redirect visitors to the originating sources (especially in the case of Powys County Times and mynewtown.co.uk where their purpose is to achieve a commerical gain).

Our democracy and local pages use data from third parties such as the Newtown Network, Spotlight Powys and others.

Can I send you a story?

Of course! We'd love to hear your own local news and stories - especially ones which aim to bring positivity and happiness to our readers. You can send your stories or any other query to [email protected].
