Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade will be putting on a display of trophies and certificates won by the town in the various Bloom competitions over the past 20 years in the Market Place on Saturday between 11am and 1pm.

The Northumbria and Britain in Bloom success has been down to partnership working between Morpeth Town Council, Northumberland County Council, Heighley Gate and the Chamber, with contributions from businesses, organisations and individuals.

The aim of the activity is to highlight how much hard work goes into the competitions each year and the leaflet that will be handed out also includes the following.

‘Sadly, a number of businesses contribute nothing to the project – imagine how our town might look if those businesses participated. Perhaps they need some further encouragement from members of our community’.
