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.

We are a UK registered charity, number 1173331. Click to see our Constitution Find us at www.charity-commission.gov.uk 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 on the calendar and / or on the home page. You can also eMail Steve Palmer (secretary@newtowncommunity.org.uk) to have yourself added to the membership list. EVERYONE interested in NEWTOWN is welcome to attend, not just Members. The more people that are at a meeting, the more useful (and fun) it is. Please come along.

Membership of NCA

Membership of NCA is open to anyone who supports the aims of the Association. You don’t have to be a resident of Newtown (though most Members will be), and the definition of the area of Newtown in the Constitution is not linked to electoral wards. Trustees must be Members of NCA. Only Members may vote at general meetings. We are especially keen to include young people as Members.

To become a Member, please download the form here (Word Document) fill it in and either email to Steve Palmer (secretary@newtowncommunity.org.uk) or post to NCA Secretary, 11 Belmont Road, Exeter EX1 2HF.

There is a separate class of Membership for organisations – if you think an organisation that you are connected to would benefit from Membership of NCA and/or contribute to the aims of NCA, please contact the Secretary. Representatives of a Member Organisation have one vote at Member meetings; if those people are also Members in their own right, they will also have their own vote.
