Our Aims

Broadly speaking our Neighbourhood Association sets out to represent and further the interests of the St. Peter's Neighbourhood of Newcastle, its residents, people who run businesses and work there, and many visitors including Coast-to-Coast walkers and cyclists.

We encourage and promote neighbourhood-wide outlooks and solutions. We have formed close relations between residents and businesses in St. Peter's, as well strong working relationships with Newcastle City Council and Northumbria Police.

We pragmatically facilitate volunteer group activities. We also promote and work to enhance the neighbourhood where we all together live, work and enjoy.
