Trade event will return

A trade event to boost business in Northumberland is returning next year.

The Meet The Maker, Meet The Buyer exhibition was organised by Northumberland County Council to help generate more sales of locally-made goods.

About 130 traders attended the first event so the council will run another one in February.

It will be held at Blyth Sports Centre on Thursday, February 26, and bookings are being taken. Producers can book a table for £20 by emailing tourismdevelopment@north
