Get in touch with Mark if you want meals on wheels
A food delivery service will be extended to Morpeth and Pegswood if there is enough interest.
The Copper Kettle in Ashington supplied what was then the WRVS with freshly-made hot food for people over many years.
The service stopped when numbers reduced but Mark Baxter, owner of the café, started its own meals on wh-eels provision five years ago.
It has proved successful and now he is looking into inc-luding Morpeth and Pegswood after being contacted by a disabled man living in the town.
Mr Baxter said: “These me-als are available to everyone, although they will particularly benefit house-bound pensioners and disabled people.
“We deliver the fresh hot food five days a week and I can also provide meals for Saturday and Sunday that can go in the fridge on a Friday.
“It costs £4 for the lunch, plus 50p for dessert, but I don’t make any money from it as this just covers the costs of the service.
“This will also help family members as they know their loved ones are getting a different hot meal each day.”
Morpeth town councillor Alison Byard has been raising awareness of the service across the town and village, with support from a few Pegswood residents, as she believes it would be “a very useful service for quite a few people in the two communities”.
