Residents will have the opportunity to ask questions about potential future activities in Morpeth during a drop-in at the Town Hall.

The event will be staffed by a variety of services from Northumberland County Council along with Morpeth Town Council, Greater Morpeth Development Trust, Morpeth Chamber of Trade and the Morpeth Town Team.

Those who come along can talk about existing services in the area and put forward their ideas for how the county council could deliver services in the future.

It will also be a chance to meet and ask questions to Nigel Walsh, Morpeth’s ‘town champion’. He is one of nine senior council officers that were nominated to help take forward the proposals for each of the county’s main towns.

Residents can come along at any time between 10am and 3.30pm on Saturday, February 20, and there will also be a large map with pins where people can literally pinpoint their ideas or issues they have.

Mr Walsh said: “This is a great opportunity for residents and other interested parties to express their opinions, put forward ideas and speak to staff about the existing services in the town.

“We know there is a lot of passion and enthusiasm about the future of Morpeth and it’s important we hear local people’s views and suggestions, which we can feed into future plans for consideration.”
