Newcastle First’s 6th Birthday

Newcastle First’s 6th Birthday

Newcastle First reaches a landmark sixth birthday today.

Launched on Valentine’s Day 2011, the founder members of the Newcastle upon Tyne Community First Party pledged their love for our city and promised to build support to take the city back from the politician councillors who have badly let down Newcastle.

Party Leader Jason Smith said: “Six years ago, a small number of people planning to stand as independent councillors – united in a belief that we needed more community representation in the council chamber – came together to form Newcastle First. We have had ups and downs but we have continued to work hard to give people a stronger voice in the council chamber. 

“What sets us apart from the party politician councillors is a real commitment to the North East, Newcastle and our local community. We intend to challenge Labour, Lib Dems and Tories for control of the council in 2018 and we encourage local people to join us on this journey.”
