Winning ways

MORPETH businesses can find out how to boost their chances of winning more public sector work at a free event on Tuesday.

Experts from The Procurement Centre are holding an information workshop at the Queen’s Head Hotel in Bridge Street.

The session will bring traders up to date with current opportunities and support and help them to find the best way forward for their business, including any issues with paperwork.

The service is delivered by business support agency TEDCO on behalf of Northumberland County Council, with support from the European Regional Development Fund, in a bid to keep more money in the county by encouraging local firms to win more contracts with public sector organisations.

It is free and open to businesses and social enterprises, as well as community groups.

The workshop will take place from 9.30am to 11.30am.
