Newton Abbot Town Criers Competition 2019


Newton Abbot Autumn Fayre 2019

A successful day all round for the 2019 Autumn Fayre.  The weather was fantastic and the town was full all day long.  The day started with a parade of the homemade pasties, which included the Mayor of Newton Abbot Richard Jenks and Mayoress Karen, Town Councillors, the Vice Chair of Teignbridge District Council, Town and Borough criers and Members of the Court Leet.  The cart itself was pushed by the onion sellers and the onion man.  The parade started off at Newton Abbot Town Hall at 10.30 am and went through Queen Street and Courtenay Street. 


CSW Volunteers are looking for volunteers to enhance the support offered through helping with a range of life skills.

Newton Abbot Carnival - the end of a great week!

This year’s Newton Abbot Town Carnival has now ended and due to the great support received it enabled the carnival to have a very successful and entertaining week. Running on a tight budget the carnival managed to stage a varied assortment of events to suit all ages and interests ranging from the Spectacle of the Crowning of the Carnival Queen and the Carnival Procession to the energy of the Fun Run and the traditional Bingo night.

Newton Abbot Lantern parade


Newton Abbot town centre was bursting with excitement on Wednesday 12th December thanks to the lantern parade in the town.  Approx. 200 pupils from Bearnes, Wolborough, All Saints, Decoy, Bradley Barton, Haytor View, Highweek & St Joseph’s Primary Schools took pride in parading their colourful bird themed lanterns through the streets of Newton Abbot towards the Clock Tower.  The theme this year was ‘Up in the Air’ and the lanterns varied from robins to owls, parrots to flamingos and a huge peacock.  A big thank you to local artist Tony Gee and other members of the Creation Myth Puppets who were able to make this fantastic event possible once again, working in partnership with Newton Abbot Town Council.
