Bloom team cleans up

MORPETH is buffing up the blooms for a national competition – and residents are urged to help out.

Britain In Bloom judges will arrive in the town on Tuesday to rate this year’s entry in the contest.

Organisers will be making last-minute checks to ensure everything is in tip-top condition, and members of the public can play their part in a community clean-up day.

It will take place on Sunday.

Volunteers should meet at the Riverside Leisure Centre at 10am.
