BLOOM:Proud of our contribution

Morpeth Chamber of Trade would like to congratulate and thank those traders in the town centre whose contribution to Morpeth’s success in the Bloom competition resulted in the Gold Medal for the Commercial Centre of the town being won yet again.

n previous years the award has gone to the Commercial Centre and Sanderson Arcade, and although that was the same this year, the official announcement only mentioned the arcade.

This was an oversight by the awards panel and I believe that it is important for everyone that the error be identified and amended.

Readers have all seen just how attractive the town has been this year as a result of everyone’s efforts and the chamber is proud and happy to have contributed in this.

On the question of contribution, a word should be said about Heighley Gate Nursery and Garden Centre, whose help, both physically and financially, was, quite literally, invaluable.

Finally, again thanks to all the traders who purchased the flowers which made the town so outstanding throughout the summer.
