This confirms that Newport County AFC Academy is holding an open trial recruitment event on Tuesday 24th May 2022 for next season’s U7 age group only.
To clarify this is for boys that are currently year 1 in primary school and whose date of birth will be between 01/09/2015 and 31/08/2016 only.
The link to the online form is http://bit.ly/ncafctellus and the form closes at midday on Sunday 22nd May 2022 strictly.
Please note that this is only available to boys, due to the EFL games programme that Newport County AFC Academy play in – please make this clear when distributing wider.
Exciting news! Behind the Badge is back and, what’s more, it’s even bigger and better than before!
After several years of holding our popular open day online, we are now able to reopen to the public and host our communities at Gwent Police HQ, Croesyceiliog. The event will be taking place on 3 July, with site access from 9am.
From our ever popular demonstrations (yes, everyone’s favourite, our pawsome four-legged officers will be doing their bit!), to countless stalls, there is something for everyone.
For the younger pupils, the kids’ zone is back or they can be fingerprinted and spend some time in our custody “cell”. For older pupils who are considering their careers, why not have a chat with our recruitment colleagues?
Please help us spread the word by displaying the attached poster and perhaps letting parents and guardians know, there really is something for everyone and we’re looking forward to seeing you all back!
Keep an eye on our social media platforms which are constantly being updated with further details.

Sustainable Food Grant
n partnership with Newport City Council, GAVO have announced the a new capital grant scheme to support community groups and third sector organisations who are responding to food insecurity in Newport and who are working towards making the city more sustainable in terms of food and access to food.
GAVO will be awarding grants of up to £3000 per group or organisation.
Applications are invited from community food initiatives and other groups that may offer activities like growing projects, nutritional/cooking on a budget cook-alongs and demo sessions and other similar activities. Applicants will have to demonstrate that they are experiencing challenges in meeting need due to inadequate equipment, facilities or other factors. The grant can cover capital items but not revenue costs or overheads. These may include (but are not restricted to):
Furniture etc (to make the facility more inviting to users)
Volunteer travel costs (where proportionate and appropriate)
The application deadline is 4th August 2022. Applications will be considered as they are received and once the fund is exhausted, we will not be able to consider any further applications. Therefore, we would encourage applications to be submitted sooner rather than later.
The full guidance and criteria are available by clicking on the documents at the foot of this page.
Please read the criteria and Terms and Conditions to ensure your project is eligible prior to submitting an application. If you have any doubts whether your project is eligible, please contact email@example.com.
