The aim was to create a network of alumni to support Newman’s bid for University status. When that was achieved in 2013, NAF! widened its brief to include cultural and social events. We meet in Birmingham each term to organise events. Since 2013 NAF! members have met up in Bedford; Leeds; Liverpool; London; Manchester; Oxford and York.
