Loftus should be a truly festive town as Christmas approaches, thanks to to the efforts of many sections of Loftus Parish Community working together.
REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 2016
As always there was fantastic support and turnout from our Uniformed Groups and residents for the Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service at Loftus War Memorial. We were also delighted to welcome the Deputy Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, David Kerfoot MBE DL to Loftus to lay a wreath on behalf of the Lieutenancy (photo below) - Mr Kerfoot commented it was a 'poignant and fitting tribute to those brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice'.
Loftus Town Council would like to thank the 50 exhibitors who contributed to the Loftus Art Gallery held 23-25 October 2016.
Congratulations to Marshall Best, winner of the Annual Citizen Award 2016.

Loftus Town Council would like to thank everyone who helped to make the Produce Show a great success - including all those who helped organise, judge, volunteer, all those businesses and community groups who sponsored a class and the entrants. It was wonderful to see the variety of exhibits displayed in the Town Hall and the event was enjoyed by exhibitors, visitors and all those who helped and organised.
Have you seen the two new signs as you enter the electoral ward of Loftus? One on the plinth on Loftus Bank, one of the reverse of the plinth on the Easington boundary, they proudly proclaim Loftus as the “Home of the Saxon Princess”, and bear the image of the iconic jewel found at the Anglo-Saxon Cemetery at Street House.
