Stevie steps down from council role

LONG-SERVING council official Stevie Matthews is stepping down.

The Morpeth Town Council Office Manager, who is a keen runner, is looking forward to more long-distance runs around the globe and learning new languages as she retires from her role.

At a meeting of the full council last week, Mayor Joan Tebbutt said: “On behalf of all members we wish you well for everything that you do.”
