Barbara Ross, of Morpeth Poetry Group, presented £45 to the Old Bakehouse Millennium Green Trust on Monday, one of its designated clean-up days.

She said: “We often do poetry readings here and we’re glad to give this do-nation as our group loves to work in partnership with the green.”

Trust chairman Val Stevens said: “We are so pleased to receive this gift and that members of the local community, like the poetry group, use and enjoy the green.”

The Millennium Green garden party, postponed due to wet weather in June, will now be held on Saturday, August 10, from 11am to 2pm.
