TRADERS are keeping their green-fingers crossed for good news on the Bloom front.
Judges have now visited Morpeth to rate its entry in both the Northumbria and Britain In Bloom competitions, with results due in the autumn.
And the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade, which is one of the town’s main Bloom partners, has heard from one organiser that he is hopeful of success.
Les English said: “I’m quite confident this year that we will get the national prize. I know I have said on a number of occasions I thought we would do it, but everything is pointing in the right direction this year.”
