Taylor Wimpey to sponsor park and ride for Morpeth Food and drink festival

A park and ride service will be in operation during Morpeth’s annual Food and Drink Festival, taking place on Saturday, October 1.

The bus service is being sponsored by local housing developer Taylor Wimpey and will take visitors from County Hall to Morpeth Bus Station every half hour.

The bus will run from 9am to 6pm in a bid to ease pressure on car parking spaces during the busy event.

Developer Taylor Wimpey, which has already supported other community events such as Morpeth football club, is currently working on its new development at St Andrew’s Gardens, in Morpeth.

AA signage will be in place prior to the festival to inform motorists of the park and ride and directions to the event. For more details, go to www.moreinmorpeth.co.uk
