Where I Live Chapel


In the Outer West of Newcastle, Chapel Ward comprises Abbey Far, Abbey Grange, Chapel House, Chapel Park, St John’s, West Meadows and North Walbottle.

Ernie Shorton (pictured right on a community litter pick) is the local campaigner and Newcastle upon Tyne Community First spokesman for Chapel Ward.

Ernie worked for many years in George’s shop in Chapel House.

He has a proven track record of action locally and, as the Westerhope candidate at the 2016 local elections, he achieved more votes than the Lib Dems and Conservatives combined. A substantial proportion of Westerhope Ward will be incorporated into Chapel.
