Welcome to our website - a dedicated resource providing high quality, ad free, 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 operated by a not-for-profit community interest company called All About Newtown CIC.
