This site is about serving the community of Norton, promoting the town’s best interests and presenting a fresh digital face of the town in the online world.
You will see that the first area on the homepage is the news and events tab. Here we aim to promote good news about the town and provide details of up and coming events within the town and community so please ensure you bookmark the page to see the news and event updates.
The next section promotes the towns businesses. Here in Norton we have a diverse range of shops, industries and business all working hard to create the best economy and trading environment in the town and it is our intention to raise their profile on these pages. Do take the time to browse through the business sections which show photos, descriptions, activities, opening hours and contact details for the businesses. Even for townsfolk there may be some businesses on here that you never knew about! For visitors to the town, we hope that the business profiles prove useful in identifying essential services and that you return time and again to these useful pages.
The town has an abundance of associations, groups, sports clubs, and the next section of the site is dedicated to these groups under the heading organisations. These groups are a vital and integral part of the community and the social well being of the town.
The next section of the site gives an overview of the town through articles, the history of Norton on Derwent and information about the area. Lastly we have a dedicated section to the Norton On Derwent Town Council, and useful information about the Councillors, officers and minutes of meetings can be found on this page.
We are working hard to personally visit and list the businesses and organisations within the town, if we haven’t got round to you yet, do let us know because we would like to get all the listings up to date as soon as possible. If you have any town news or are holding an event do let us know so we can give this coverage through our pages. We also want to give members of the community a chance to be heard through these pages so if you are inspired to write an article or do some content writing we would love to hear from you.
We at Norton On Derwent Town Council feel that having a website such as this is a most useful provision to have within the town. We do hope that you agree. I thank you for all your support and for taking the time to look at these pages.
Cllr. Di Keal, Mayor of Norton On Derwent
