A busy shopping centre is ringing in the changes as it welcomes a new retailer to its line-up.

Mobile phone and tablet sales and service store Vodafone opened in Sanderson Arcade, Morpeth, this week as part of a £100million national expansion programme.

The outlet, which has created five jobs, features tables displaying the best-selling phones and tablets to try before you buy, set-up assistance, contact and photo transfer services and a click and collect scheme.

Manager Nikolay Bonev said: “We’re delighted to be coming to Morpeth and have some great offers for our customers. Pop in, see what we’ve got for you, or simply ask our advice. We’re here to help.”

The retailer has teamed up with the Herald to offer a Vodafone Community Connection Award, providing £1,000 and a free tech assessment to a local charity, club or group that makes a significant impact on the community.

The award must be for a specific project or purpose, rather than covering general costs, and must stand alone rather than form part of a bigger appeal.

Readers can nominate a cause by filling in a nomination form in the Herald and sending it to us at 17 Newgate Street, Morpeth, Northumberland, NE61 1AW by Friday, October 31.
