Children in the great outdoors

CHILDREN will be given ample chance to sample the great outdoors, thanks to Morpeth gardeners.

Groundwork North East has teamed up with the Tommy’s Field Allotment Association to offer a series of sessions at the plots off Dark Lane.

Children aged between seven and 13 are invited along to try out a range of activities, such as scavenger hunts, scarecrow making, bug hunts and tasting summer fruits.

All activities are free.

They will take place every Thursday this month, from 10am to noon.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and should wear suitable clothing for the outdoors.
