Your Weekend Guide for Newton!

So much happening in Newton this weekend!  Saturday is the huge Vaisakhi Parade. Everyone is welcome to attend this joyous event . Check out the link for information  about the parade route and street closures.
This morning at 10:00 pop-into The Grove near the Newton Rec Centre and say hi to the Friends of The Grove. They're a group of dedicated citizens who are planning a big event on Sat May 3rd. They meet weekly to chat with the community and always have surprises in store, like these pop-up children's tents!
