WOMEN came together at a Morpeth landmark to show their solidarity for peace around the world.

Members of Soroptimist International Morpeth branch, along with friends, gathered at the Chantry footbridge on Thursday as part of International Women’s Day celebrations.

They stood for 30 minutes to reflect on peace and bridges between women around the world.
