Where I Live Callerton & Throckley

Callerton & Throckley

Callerton & Throckley

*** Please note, Ian's surgery at Newburn Parish Hall on Thursday 12 December has had to be cancelled as the venue is being used as a polling station *** 

In the Outer West of Newcastle, Callerton & Throckley Ward comprises Newburn, Walbottle, Throckley, Whorlton, Callerton, Black Callerton, Woolsington and Newcastle Airport.

Walbottle resident Councillor Ian Donaldson is the Newcastle Independents spokesman for Callerton & Throckley.

Ian has lived in Walbottle all his life and his family roots in the ward can be traced back to his great grandfather who was a miner at Callerton Pit. Ian is a manager with Royal Mail and is well known to many people in Throckley from his days as a postman in the area. 

Ian is passionate about doing the best for the area he lives in and, if elected, will campaign for better transport connections, improved facilities for children and young people and tackling anti social behaviour. He is also concerned about ongoing problems at Walbottle tip and also the lack of investment in infrastructure to support the large scale development imposed on the community.

Ian is supporting Adam Mitchell, who is standing as the Newcastle Independents candidate for Callerton and Throckley at the coming local elections. Father of two, Adam, adopted Newcastle as his home 22 years ago when he came here to work.

As a long distance runner and medal winner, he has the get up and go and stamina to deliver real change. He cares passionately for the city and will be a hard working councillor.
