Take a lead

PET owners can take a lead from the experts in free advice sessions at Heighley Gate Nursery and Garden Centre.

The outlet, off the A697 north of Morpeth, will host the events as part of National Pet Month, which aims to highlight the benefits of living with pets and promote responsible ownership.

Experts from Eukanuba, Burgess, Foldhill and Feelwells will be in the centre’s pet store on Saturday to advise on looking after pets, their food, hygiene and shelter, while representatives from James Wellbeloved will be there on Sunday.
