Friends of the University of Newcastle

Welcome to the Friends of the University of Newcastle blog.

The Friends was founded in 1981 to provide a means of contact between members of the public, who may not have any other direct link with the University, and the University.

In every odd-numbered year, the Friends conducts a Book Fair which raises money for spending on projects of benefit to the University.
