Blooming lovely

MORPETH will blooming lovely in the next few weeks as floral displays come out for the summer.

Volunteers from the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade will be taking baskets and tubs to businesses this week.

The chamber subsidises the cost of the displays and places flowers where there are obvious gaps.

This year’s business blooms are being provided by local trader Jeanette Penman, while Heighley Gate Nursery and Garden Centre will do the watering.

A town clean-up day will take place on Sunday, July 17, ahead of the summer judging for Northumbria in Bloom the following day.
