Thank you to every one of the 5103 people who voted for us in the local elections.
Party Leader Jason Smith said: "We do not have the same level of resources as the political party candidates we were up against. We may not have big business or trade union backing, but we do have real passion for our city.
"Lib Dems, who tried to mislead residents in one ward about our legal status, saw every one of their candidates get less votes than the Newcastle Community First candidates.
"From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support in the election."
