Army veteran Dave Herne, who served in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, is organising a collection on Remembrance Sunday among fellow veterans and serving members of the Armed Forces during and after the Morpeth parade.

He said: “We intend to raise the majority, if not all of the cost, for a memorial bench as a donation to Morpeth Town Council for it to place in the Market Place or by the Chantry to remember those from the town who have not returned home from conflicts.
