Ahoy ... pirates!

LANDLUBBERS beware as Newton is transformed into Treasure Island this weekend.

A pirate-themed fete will take place on Saturday between noon and 5pm on the green and at the village hall.

Prepare to have your timbers thoroughly shivered with donkey rides, falconry displays and even a real ale tent.

The fete has been organised by the Village Fete Committee.

Treasurer Sue Presland said: “The pirate theme is a great opportunity for people to get involved and dress up and make this year’s fete as lively as possible.”
