Dear Sir

The Parish of Great Aycliffe wish to send their CONGRATULATIONS and best wishes to all at Newton Press on their fantastic achievement in “Heart of the Community” award.

This family run firm truly deserves this award for all they do for the people of Newton Aycliffe and beyond.

Their commitment is second to none and it is so heart warming to see how Paul, Stuart and Chris, (The Howarth brothers), have strived to keep Newton News the best free local newspaper in the forefront of all other editorials we have to purchase.

Their Dad, Syd, must be looking down on them all with so much pride and love, as they take the paper he made and edited into a new dimension.

Thank you all at Newton News and lots of luck in the finals, you deserve to win.

God’s blessing be with you.

Pam Lovelass
