We would just like to inform our members and the people of Newport that
that British Newspaper Archive have digitised some of the Newport Advertiser. People have to pay to view, but its a start. Previously the only way to see old editions was at Newport library with microfilm.

Dementia friendly Newport

Meet Terry Hayward of Newport History Society’s Field Group. These are the people who go out and about with metal detectors and other equipment in search of historic artefacts. And they currently have a fine display in the glass cabinets at Newport’s Guildhall Tearooms – including some fascinating items from the First World War. Delighted to say that Terry and his Field Group colleagues have become “Dementia Friends” and are the latest SUPPORTER GROUP to join the Alzheimer’s Society’s NEWPORT PROJECT. You can find out more by emailing

100 Years.

As we all know this Sunday commemorates 100 years since the end of the First world war, so we thought that it would be fitting to have some poppy’s in the cabinet to honour those who did so much in the defence of this country and especially those who gave all and never returned.
we dedicate the two poppy’s to Rowland Breward who’s death penny was found in a field last year, we have not found any surviving members of his family to return the Penny back to, so until we do we will be his family and remember him on Sunday.

Thank you to all that serve.
