Memorial book

A SPECIAL memorial book was been dedicated at St James’ Church in Newton on Sunday.

The book is dedicated to the Colvile family, who lived in the village for 500 years. Many of them were baptised and buried at the church.

Although the Colviles no longer live in Newton, the family maintains strong links with the village and contributed to the Restoration Fund for the church.

Sky TV cricket commentator Charles Colvile and his family attended the dedication service.

The book will be displayed in a case by the family crypt.
