New look for business event

A REVAMP has been planned for a Morpeth business group’s annual celebration to make the most of networking opportunities.

The Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade holds a Chairman’s Dinner every year, bringing members together for a meal and entertainment.

But next year’s event, organised by Judith Nunn, will also appeal to non-members, providing a sponsored champagne reception before the dinner and an hour’s networking opportunity.

Chamber Chairman John Beynon said: “We hope to have 200 people there and it will be bigger and better than any Chairman’s Dinner we’ve ever had.

“There will be champagne, networking boards and a six o’clock start to introduce people to each other, both members and non-members.”

The event will be held at the Riverside Lodge in February.
