This Thursday 14th the Newick Afternoon Club will be meeting in the Community Centre at 2.30pm. the speaker will be Dr. Ben Dent, talking about his experiences working with farmers in Africa ( and the Caribbean) Ben is tackling the problem at source, making poor farmers aware of what the market wants, and how to maximise their returns, plus how they cope with climate change and prosper at home. This will certainly be a very interesting talk.

Newick Country Market will be open on FRIDAY morning in the Village Hall from 10 to 11am,you can purchase local vegetables, some of these are organically grown. There is always a good selection of homemade cakes and savoury items, fresh eggs , preserves, local cheeses and charcuterie. A grand selection of homemade greetings cards, knitted items, flowers and plants. you need to be an early bird at the Village Hal so not to be disappointed as several items sell out quickly, you may also enjoy a cup of coffee or tea.!!
