Work completed

REPAIRS and improvements have been carried out across Morpeth.

Morpeth Town Council organised work to fix the junior climbing frame and junior slide in Carlisle Park, while new seats have been installed in the Market Place. The old ones have been recycled for use by six Morpeth schools and two original dedicated seat purchasers.

New planters will be erected at the change over from spring to summer planting arrangements.

Town Clerk Gillian Turner said: “We had quite a few complaints when we said the benches would be replaced by recycled plastic ones, but now they are in situ a number of people have said they really like them and can understand why they have been changed.”

The work was reported to a meeting of the council’s Property and Asset Management Committee last week.
