Traders’ leader George Williams has spoken of a year of success for Morpeth’s business group.
The Chairman of the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade outlined the organisation’s achievements in a review of the year at the group’s annual general meeting.
And he said there were more reasons than one to be cheerful, highlighting Britain In Bloom awards, the abolition of parking charges and the removal of unpopular traffic lights as particular successes.
Mr Williams spoke of the chamber’s involvement in all three campaigns and also highlighted positive Fair Day and Golf Day events, the growth of the More In Morpeth website and close partnership work in the Morpeth Town Team alongside the Greater Morpeth Development Trust, Morpeth Town Council and Sanderson Arcade.
“It has been a very interesting year for lots of reasons,” he said.
“With regard to other organisations, we have found that we are working very well together and I would like to thank them for their hard work and assistance during the year.
“I would also like to thank members for their work and attendance.
“Finally, I would like to thank you for having me as Chairman. I have tried very hard to do the best that I can.”
