Toast a hero

A TOAST to Morpeth’s naval hero will take place on Sunday.

The toast to Admiral Lord Collingwood, who led the British fleet at Trafalgar following the death of Nelson, will take place outside his former home, Collingwood House in Oldgate.

Morpeth Mayor Mark Horton will lead the toast at noon, the anniversary of when the first battle shots were fired, and participants will be offered ‘grog’.
