Thousands log on to site

A NEW Morpeth website is already proving a hit.

Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade set up to promote the area and provide a comprehensive guide to businesses, history and events.

Members have been told that in little over a week of it going live the site had more than 6,500 hits.

Chamber Vice Chairman Debbie Anderson said: “There are a lot of people talking about it and posting us messages. It is all positive stuff.”
