COVID-19 regulations have caused volunteers to curtail their usual festive activities around the neighbourhood.  However a Festive programme of activities is nevertheless on offer for residents and people who work in St. Peter's to participate and contribute.

1. Window Displays

For Christmas, St. Peter’s Neighbourhoood Association thought it might be nice to bring some light and Christmas cheer to our neighbourhood with Christmas Window Displays and a Festive Walking Map.

To take part, we would like you to:

  • Have a display in a window that can be seen by others from the outside.
  • Light up the window between the hours of 6pm-9pm every night from Sunday 6 December 2020 until Saturday 2 January 2021.
  • Email Jon at jonmbryan@gmail.com with “Christmas Window Display” in the subject of the email and tell him where the window display will be.


We will create a St. Peter’s Walking Map of all the Windows. All residents and businesses are invited to take part. No need to be an expert, or even competent!

PLEASE MENTION THIS ONE TO YOUR NEIGHBOURS AND COLLEAGUES.  YOU MIGHT ALL BE INTERESTED IN TAKING PART.

2. Foodbank Collection

As with previous years, we are also hoping to organise a foodbank collection to support local Newcastle East people and families. Of course, this will be subject to ongoing COVID-19 regulations in December, and if it cannot take place before Christmas, then the collection will happen in the New Year.

3.  Fundrasier Raffle

Finally, we are also planning our annual Neighbourhood Festive Fundraising Raffle for the Association. This typically finances our running costs.  It also provided this summer the funds for the donation of £200 to Newcastle East Foodbank. Bottle and chocolate prize donations are very welcome.  Or if you prefer, a cheque or BACS transfer are both just as welcome. Either way, please get in touch with secretary@stpetersnewcastle.co.uk  before December 1, and please advise what you want to do help.
