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.

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].

What do we cover?

We aim to cover the issues and events that affect and reflect the lives of the people of Newtown, and wider into Powys County Council and Wales.

We aim to be fair and objective and, where possible, explain things in a meaningful way with context and analysis.

We don’t always get it right and factual mistakes and errors, where identified either by ourselves or readers, will always be corrected as soon as possible. We will highlight such corrections online where appropriate.

All of our reporting is carried out under the auspices of IPSO’s Editors Code of Practice and the National Union of Journalists’ Code of Conduct.
