Charity fun for the family

THERE’S plenty of family fun lined up for Morpeth this weekend.

Town-based charity Drout, which provides support services for people dealing with alcohol problems, has organised a fun day to raise funds and awareness of its work.

The event takes place in the Market Place on Saturday and includes a tombola, sponge throwing, a bouncy castle and entertainment courtesy of a local singer.

The fun day runs from 10.30am to 2pm. Refreshments will be available.
