Mistletoe hat-trick

A TRIO of Morpeth organisations have come together to develop an annual town event.

The Mistletoe Fair has been run in the Town Hall by the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade on the same day as the Christmas Lights switch-on in November.

Now it has brought Morpeth Town Council and the Greater Morpeth Development Trust (GMDT) on board to help run the activities and potentially add some more.

Chamber Chairman John Beynon said: “The Town Council will look after the stalls in the Town Hall, whilst ourselves and GMDT will arrange entertainment in the Market Place as well as consider shopping events in the town.

“If all this takes place, it will make the Mistletoe Fair bigger than it was before.”
