46 representatives from Newport Pagnell schools, clubs, businesses and organizations attended the Town Council’s new website launch last night on 24th October 2012.  The website hopes to be a site for everyone, offering information on the Newport Pagnell community ranging from businesses and shops in the town, to schools and recreational activities.

At the website launch, Councillor Mike Barry said, “We want this website to be a living, growing thing. It’s not our website – it’s yours. You tell us what you want to see on it.”

The facebook link on the website is already showing how much residents and businesses enjoyed the town centre floral decorations erected by the Town Council this year, and has encouraged the Council to continue to fund these next year with some assistance from sponsors.

The website was launched with not one but TWO exciting competitions, with two categories each – the under 16’s and over 16 year old categories. There are four cash prizes of £50 to be won, so if you can provide the best photograph of Newport Pagnell, or write 20 words about Newport Pagnell, go to our website www.newport-pagnell.org.uk for the competition rules and entry forms. The competition closes on 19th November 2012, and winners will be announced on the 24th November 2012, to coincide with the Christmas Lights Event.
