Subscription charge frozen

A MORPETH business group has frozen its annual subscription charge.

The Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade has voted to keep its membership charge at £50.

It had been suggested that a reduced rate could be set, but members decided the existing fee is good value.

Chairman John Beynon said: “We will look at this on an annual basis, but we think it is good value for everything we achieve through the year and what we can do to help traders.”
