    In 2018, faced with a £54million funding shortfall, the Conservatives at County Hall wanted to scrap all seven District and Borough Councils in Nottinghamshire to create a super-Council run from West Bridgford. Following fierce opposition, the idea was quickly dropped. Now, this time with Government support, the scheme has been revived.

    When Lockdown eased in June and shops began re-opening, Town Councillors decided it was time to spruce up Southwell's centre. Hanging baskets have been put up in King Street, flags put up where watering is difficult currently, and bollards re-painted.
    A decision to paint the bollards was taken two years ago but with staff shortages the work had not been carried out. To avoid further delays, a group of Councillors aided by several groups of volunteers decided to take on the work to welcome shoppers back.

    The recent COVID19 lockdown brought out the best in Southwell. Once the Government declared a lockdown, the Town Council responded quickly to open its Emergency Communications Hub. A telephone helpline manned by Councillors connected residents in need with local groups who could provide help.
    Volunteers, such as the newly established Torpedoes, Southwell live at Home, Southwell Lions, Turtle Dove, the Scouts and many other groups offered support to help those who were self-isolating and shielding. Practical and emotional support came from Southwell Churches together. Local shops and the business community showed resilience and commitment, providing goods and services throughout the lockdown.
    The Town Council will continue to do everything it can to provide support and keep Southwell safe in the coming months.
