MEET “MISTER NEWCASTLE”

He’s the man who loves the city of Newcastle upon Tyne so much that he named himself after it. Iranian Ali Reza Sarkhofh swapped Tehran for Tyneside eleven years ago in the search for a better life. Now he has celebrated becoming a fully-fledged British citizen by officially changing his name to Peter Newcastle. Peter said: “The people of Newcastle feel like my family. “If you have a son or a daughter or a brother or a sister, they share the same name as you and that’s why it made sense for me to share my name with this great city.”Peter lives in the heart of the city centre, just a stone’s throw away from two of Tyneside’s most famous sites, St James’s Park and the former Brown Ale Brewery site. Working as a secretary for a print firm, in Elswick, he got regular lessons on the Geordie dialect from his colleagues.

Peter Newcastle

Peter said: “They have taught me how to say ‘why aye’ and the biggest thing I have learned is everyone is called ‘mate’. My favourite thing about Newcastle is the people. They will always be your friend and always give you such a warm welcome. The place I like to go the most in the city is the Quayside. I love the bridges and the river.” Peter grew up in the Iranian capital of Tehran but moved to Newcastle upon Tyne in 2001. He instantly fell in love with the area and settled in a house in Spring Garden Lane, Arthur’s Hill. After seven years on Tyneside, he became an official British citizen at a ceremony hosted by the Sheriff of Newcastle Councillor David Wood, at the civic centre’s banqueting hall.
