Switch-on celebtrations

Morpeth Market Place was full to bursting as people gathered for the switch-on of the town’s Christmas Lights.

Carol singing was led by the five tenors - Alec Swailes, Rev Ron Fo rster, Roy Beasley, Jacob Conroy and Jim McAllister.

They were accompanied by the Ellington Colliery Brass Band and members of the crowd. Rev Simon White addressed the audience and then the Mayor Joan Tebbutt invited Phoenix Todd, who won the childrens fancy dress at Morpeth Fair, to press the button and light up the town.
