Queues formed at the Trent Vale Landscape Partnership stall at the Sconce Fest on Sunday as children, grandmothers, teenagers and dads waited to join in the Civil War purse making workshop. Sue Rodgers from Nottinghamshire County Council led the workshops and showed people how to lace together leather purses. Over 35 free purses were made during the afternoon as hundreds of people joined the celebrations to officially reopen Sconce and Devon Park. 

Other activities included re-enactments by the Sealed Knot, displays by Newark Heritage Barge and Farndon Sea Scouts, music by the competition winner of Newark’s Got Talent and dance displays by local groups.
