Praise for market changes

COUNCILLORS have welcomed the announcement of a revamp at Morpeth Market.

It is hoped that following the deal between Sanderson Arcade and the county council, there will be 20 stalls every week, each in blue and white livery and displaying the More In Morpeth branding. There will also be anchor points and power supplies.

At a full meeting of Morpeth Town Council, member Andrew Tebbutt said: “I think in principle, we should support this revamp.

“A positive change in policy is that local traders can have a stall if they wish.”
