Council cards on the table

BUSINESS cards will be introduced for Morpeth town councillors.

Name badges have already been ordered for members to wear at official functions and now the council’s Finance and General Purposes Committee has given the go-ahead for business cards.

The cards will have the council office details on and be designed to match the Mayor’s existing cards, but there will also be space for members to fill in their own names and contact details. The idea of individual cards was discounted to avoid extra cost and wastage as some councillors said they had no need for cards.
