I good friend of mine, Peter Champness, has recently moved to Newcastle and is starting up a .NET user group for folks that live in the area. Currently the homepage has a form you can fill in as an expression of interest to let Peter know what .NET related subjects you are interested in.
If you living in Newcastle or near Newcastle why not let Peter know you are out there? If you know anyone that lives in the Newcastle area please forward a link to the Newcastle .NET User Group homepage. If you have a weblog why not put a post up and help get the word out!
