Newmill is a small hamlet approximately 1 mile north of Keith. Dating from the early 18th century, the settlement was built to home the workers from the nearby meal mill built by Bishop Crystall, on the banks of the river Isla. It now has a Pub and popular Chinese restaurant and take-away.
The Newmill War Memorial commemorates those from the Parish who lost their lives during World War I and II. The architect was F. A. Robertson, Keith. The memorial was built by W. A. Donald of Broadrashes in 1922-23.
The War Memorial was restored in 2016.

The task of any community council is to identify the needs and aspirations of its community and to take decisions that will lead to appropriate action in that community.
The role of the community councillor is one that requires you to represent the views of your community, or your section of the community. In practice, this will involve discussing issues with people in the community to clarify their views and assess the strength of their feelings on different topics.
