In 1982 a small group of local history buffs in Newcastle Village applied to become a charitable organization, calling themselves, Newcastle Village and District Historical Society. In September of that year, their charter was granted.

You can get what you need locally

“You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, well, you might get what you need,” sang Mick Jagger in 1969. The band wasn’t singing about the future COVID-19, but the words were running through my head as I wrote this article. We don’t have to go very far to get what we need.


COVID-19 Community Improvement Program

Clarington Council approved a COVID-19 Community Improvement Plan (CIP) that will assist businesses to reopen and remain open with the proper safety precautions needed as mandated by the Province. Council has earmarked $1 million to this improvement plan that will help provide funding to businesses that had to make physical improvements to protect both staff and patrons during COVID-19.
