AGM Change of Date

It has been agreed to revert to AGMs early in the calendar year to enable us to approve audited accounts before they have to be submitted to the Charity Commission. 

The AGM will now take place on Saturday 21st February 2015 from 10.30am-12pm.

Booking the Hut

Belmont Hut, in the middle of Belmont Park (or Belmont Leisure Ground, if you will) is a fabulous community resource and the focus of many community events and activities. You can book the hut for your event. All the details are on the Hut Bookings Page. The calendar will tell you which slots are currently available.



Thursdays 10.30-11.30 - costs £4

Quigon PosterSessions began again on 8th January 2015. Thank you to all who come to this. New people are always welcome to come and try it out. Your first trial session is free and each session then costs £4. For more information email Su Aves at

Our sessins are led by Joe Salmon from Tai Chi Nation. We follow each session with a short social cafe which anyone is welcome to stay for if you have time.

Qigong consists of exercises designed to relax the body, reduce stress, improve breathing and enhance coordination which can in turn improve balance. No previous experience of Qigong is needed.

Social Cafe

2nd Wednesday 10.30-12 noon - free

Every 2nd Wednesday each month Su and George organise cafes at Belmont Park Hut for anyone who would like to come. We usually number 10 or so. We have hot drinks, cake and biscuits. It is a free cafe. We owe thanks to the Exeter City Council Community Grant and the POCA Incentivisation Funds for Community Projects 2012/2013 (Police) who have both supported these cafes with funds.

Anyone is welcome. We sometimes just talk to each other and sometimes have a speaker or activity. If you would like to know anything else about the cafe do phone Su on 01392 272793. We would very much like to see new faces as well as our regulars. There is no pressure to come every month, just when you would like to come.

The Newtown Community Association

The Association exists to bring the wider Newtown community together by providing an affordable venue for activities and events.

We are based at The Hut in Belmont Park, Exeter, which we operate for groups, families and individuals to use as a venue for all kinds of activities and events.

We also organise or host events ourselves from time to time and take part in larger events in the park such as the Respect Festival.

How Can You Help?

We are ALWAYS looking for people to get involved in whichever capacity suits them from making cakes to editing the web site!
