Help create this website
Tell us your stories, help us map the towns place in the world, share your photos and insights. Please contribute to one or if you wish all three sections below
We want to map some of the formal connections Newtown has with different parts of the world. We are mapping some of the business and political connections already but we want to know more.
Tell us about the things we might not know about how your town is connected to other places.
We are trying to document how the town has changed, particularly over the last fifty years. If you have any photos, or video, or even audio files that you would be willing to share with us please upload them here.

All submissions will be treated as anonymous unless the contributor specifically requests to be named and associated with the material. In other words we will not identify you by name in our publications unless you want us to.
All material submitted to this site will be used by the Assembling Newtown research project. For example, the project team might choose to feature it in material produced for a Newtown Exhibition in 2017, or in articles or reports that the project creates, and particularly on this website as part of the ‘Our Town’ pages.
We comply with the Data Protection policy of the project as explained here
For example, are you involved in a community project with links to other countries? or does your business trade with businesses in other parts of the world?
Are you involved with a community or work related group that has actively made contact and connections with similar groups in other places?
These might be photos of town events (were you a Santa runner, rally driver, carnival queen?), or buildings and businesses that have been and gone,
or new businesses opening in the town, or maybe audio and video recordings of live performances of bands, Am-dram and sporting prowess,
or memorable visits (e.g. Princess Diana and the Queen) and events that changed the town.
