Neighbourhood Friends was ‘launched’ at Newton Village Hall on Tuesday, 29 November 2016.

Ailsa Garner, comments:  “Our launch  was a great success and we were delighted to find more than enough volunteers to get our charity off the ground.

We will now concentrate on our objective which is to provide companionship for older people in Newton who are lonely.

If anyone would like to follow our progress you can do so on

Our Facebook page – Newton Neighbourhood Friends

Or our web site –

Or contract us via our email –

Where?    Newton Village Hall
When?    Tuesday 29th November @ 7:15pm
Why?     We are launching NEIGHBOURHOOD FRIENDS. This is your local charity for your local residents – your neighbours.













There are older people amongst us in Newton who, simply, have no one to talk to – from one day to the next.

We want to offer such neighbours companionship. That’s all – just someone to talk to.

BUT we can’t do this without volunteers.

Would you please help?

Come along to meet us – to find out who we are, what we’re doing and why we’re doing it
