The Morpeth Market has received national recognition for a banner designed by pupils from St Robert’s First School.

It was recently displayed to celebrate the national two-week Love Your Local Market initiative. The children were asked to draw pictures of why they love Morpeth and its markets and it was a tough job choosing the 20 pictures to be featured on the banner.

After spotting the photo above online, the Love Your Local Market team included it in its national newsletter.
