What is the Newtown Community Association?

The objectives of the Association are to promote the benefit of the inhabitants of Newtown, Exeter. This is without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, nationality, age, disability, race or of political, religious or other opinions. We endeavour to do this in association with Newtown’s inhabitants, with the statutory authorities and with voluntary and other organisations. We seek to advance education and to provide facilities, in the interests of social welfare, recreation and leisure, with the object of improving the conditions of Newtown’s inhabitants.

We do this mainly by maintaining the Hut in Belmont Park as a community resource and by promoting other charitable purposes from time to time.

(Once I've worked out how to do it without infringing copyright, you will see here a map showing the boundary of Newtown, Exeter. In the meantime, if you live in or near Newtown, I guess you know where it is!)

We are a UK registered charity, number 299529. Find us at by entering our number in the "Search of Regular Charities" box.

Running the Association

We hold meetings every 6 weeks or so in the hut. You should find the next meeting the calendar and / or on the home page. You can also eMail Steve Palmer ( to have yourself added to the mailing list. EVERYONE IN NEWTOWN is welcome to attend. The more people that are at a meeting, the more useful (and fun) it is. Please come along.
