On the trail of summer fun

A FUN summer trail has been launched to support a Morpeth business group.

Chamber of Trade member April Atkinson of La Bodega Tapas Bar in Newgate Street has organised a ‘walking treasure hunt’ across the town centre.

Families can buy a form for £5 and they then need to follow the clues to find the answers. The route covers shops and attractions in Manchester Street, Newgate Street, Bridge Street and Oldgate, as well as Carlisle Park.

Prizes donated by local businesses and organisations will be awarded each week until the first week of September.

Mrs Atkinson said: “This will be a fun activity for all the family, which will also raise money for the chamber and awareness of the many different types of businesses in the town centre at the same time.

“A girl I have been working with on this wrote the clues for a test treasure hunt and I discovered there were some things I didn’t know about the shops and buildings in Morpeth so it will be informative for those taking part as well.”

People can pick up a form at the Chantry Tourist Information Centre, Kayola’s Deli, La Bodega, The Sewing Box, Gordon Carr Newsagents and Stripes.

Gordon Carr Newsagents, Kayola’s Deli and La Bodega are all offering discounts to those who drop off their clue answers with them.
