Memorial planned to honour Newark Castle warden


By Sharon Hodkin


A memorial will take place to honour the memory of Newark Castle warden Floss Newman on Saturday 27 July.

The event will celebrate the time Floss spent at Newark Castle and her love of the historic monument.

She started her career at the Castle by volunteering and after learning all about the building’s past which fuelled her passion for the castle, she became warden following the retirement of the previous overseer.

Her enthusiasm for the Castle was infectious and many visitors to the Castle commented on her passion. The memorial is taking place to honour the five years she spent working at Newark Castle and the many lives she touched.

Phil Beard, Business Manager for Parks and Amenities said: “Floss was a real asset to Newark Castle and she is sorely missed. We are planning to dedicate a bench to her memory near to where her office was in the grounds. She was a pleasure to work with and I look forward to sharing memories of her at the memorial event.”

The event will start at 4pm and end at 9pm, guests are asked to bring a picnic but please remember that the event is alcohol free. Guests are invited to bring a flower or two to place in the Gatehouse and to bring photos you have of your memories of Floss.
