Rush for Hall weddings

DEMAND for weddings at Morpeth Town Hall is exceeding all expectations.

The building was officially opened as a wedding venue last week, but already a number of ceremonies have taken place and bookings are being taken from near and far, including from couples living outside the county.

At the first open evening more than 60 people turned up to check out the revamped facilities.

The landmark in Morpeth Town Centre has been renovated in a major project by the Greater Morpeth Development Trust and Northumberland County Council after the programme was initially begun by the former Castle Morpeth Borough Council.

Now it is home to Morpeth Town Council and Northumberland Registration Services.
