Shoppers watch out for witches

WITCHES will be mixed in among the goods as a Morpeth traders’ competition returns for another outing.

The Great Newgate Street Witch Hunt will take place during half-term week. The top prize is £100 in shopping vouchers, with two lots of £40 vouchers for the runners-up.

A total of 38 shops are taking part this year and entrants need to track each witch down and note their names on an entry form, which are available from Cafe Des Amis, The Sewing Box and Lin-Mor Direct.

Entries need to be handed in by the end of Monday, November 5 and there will then be a random draw by the organisers.

The winners of the vouchers, which can be spent in any of the participating businesses, will be notified by telephone.
