Social night could return

A SOCIAL evening for Morpeth community groups could become an annual fixture.

Morpeth Mayor Ken Brown organised the event in the Town Hall last month to thank the voluntary sector and business community for its service to the area.

The reception was also an opportunity for networking between groups and societies.

Now Coun Brown has reported that it was a success and will be recommending to future civic heads that it is held annually.

At a meeting of Morpeth Town Council’s Property and Asset Management Committee, he said: “It was an exceptionally good turn-out, with more than 50 organisations represented and about 120 people there.

“We have had good feedback about it as an event and I will recommend to the next Mayor that we continue this as an annual event.”
