Among the twinkle and sparkle of the festive lights switch-on, the Rector of Morpeth took a moment to remind the crowds of the real meaning of Christmas.
Rev Simon White told those gathered in the Market Place last night, what the Christmas Spirit means to him.
Herald photographer Jane Coltman was there to catch the night’s action. You can buy a photo on the Herald website by clicking the link.
