Warm welcome from Newcastle, Ontario

Mayor Adrian Foster and many members of his local community gave a very warm welcome on Thursday 9 August to the Lord Mayor of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

Councillor Jackie Slesenger, her huband and sister visited Newcastle, Ontario less than two weeks after the Canadian Newcastle had been invited to host the 2014 gathering of Newcastles of the World. The Lord Mayor was visiting her sister in Toronto, so the visit to nearby Newcastle and accept Mayor Foster’s invitation was too good a chance to miss.
