NPEA Meeting:  The 2016 spring HOA general meeting will be held April 25th at 7 p.m. at the Newington Pool. Visit the Board/Covenants page to review minutes from past meetings.

Newington Yard of the Month: Reviving the Yard of the Month award has been a challenging task.  We have so many neighbors with beautiful, well kept yards! But, it has been fun to reward families for their hard work. If we didn't get to you this year – please keep up the hard work and hopefully we will be knocking on your door next spring. 

Real Estate Closings: If you are a real estate representative or a homeowner who needs a HOA dues balance or other information for a Newington home closing, contact Mike Gobin at newingtonmanager@gmail.com or 843-475-1066.

Homeowners must mail their $75.00 membership check (made payable to NPEA) to NPEA, P.O. Box 654, Summerville, SC 29484. To update your mailing address, or to obtain additional information on annual member fees, contact Mike Gobin at 843-475-1066 or newingtonmanager@gmail.com.

Personal signs (yard sales, lost pets, etc.) are not to be stapled, nailed, or taped to Newington street signs. If you wish to advertise a yard sale then use your own sign and place it in the ground, not on the wood street posts.

Trash & Recycling: In Newington, if you are in the Town limits, the main trash pickup day which includes trash & paper recycled goods is every Thursday. Yard debris is picked up on Wednesdays (just pile it up on your curb—with no bags). Bulk items such as furniture and “white goods” (appliances, hot water heaters, etc.) which cannot be containerized or bundled are only picked up on a “call basis” only. You must call Waste Pro at 619-0800 to schedule these pickups. Obtain general information on Garbage Pickups & Recycling by going to the Town’s website at: http://www.summerville.sc.us/. This excellent site also has good information of a variety of Town subjects such as ordinances, the Farmers Market, and community events.

Overhanging Trees: Please cut all limbs that overhang sidewalks or obscure street lights so they don’t become a safety problem. Speaking of street lights, if you notice that a light is burned out, report it to SCE&G at 800-251-7234.

Mailbox Posts: If you’re replacing a mailbox post, the wood Newington post is available for purchase at the Berlin Myers Lumber store on 350 N. Main Street. This is the same post that is used in the Ashborough subdivision.

Reflective Vests: If you walk or bike ride after dark, it is wise to wear a reflective vest or belt. We continue to have reports of some very close calls between pedestrians and cars after dark. This simple safety measure is very inexpensive and quite effective.

Newington Tennis Players: Ashborough East tennis membership is now available to Newington residents. Ashborough East has four lighted hard courts. League teams are available as well as tennis lessons for adults and juniors. Ashborough East is located off Dorchester Road between Bacon's Bridge and Trolley Road.
