Notice of the audit and right to inspect the Annual Return  

The Audit of the accounts for Southwell Town Council for the year ended 31 March 2018 has been carried out but cannot be completed for the reasons stated in the auditor's Certificate. The accounts have been published.

The Annual Governance & Accountability Return is available for inspection by any local government elector of the area of Southwell Town Council on application to the Clerk. 

Southwell is a delightful market town which has much to offer visitors. It has a rich historical and architectural heritage which includes a magnificent Minster which is over 900 years old and numerous Prebendal houses.

Southwell is also the birthplace of the famous Bramley apple and the original tree which, still bears fruit, can be seen in a private garden in the town centre. The bicentenary in 2009  of this  world renowned apple is commemorated in a window in the Minster.

Southwell is the hub for a wide variety of annual events throughout the year. Music in the Minster every month, the ‘Family Funday’  and the Folk Festival (which attracts thousands of visitors to the town) both in June, the Bramley Festival in October and the ever popular Lantern Walk (right) in December are only a few.
