Cllr Nic Best, Mayor of Morpeth, has produced a special new limited edition “Morpeth” parking disk for sale in aid of the Mayor’s Charity – Wansbeck Valley Food Bank.
“For just £1 – the price of a standard Northumberland parking disk – you can show your pride in Morpeth, support the Wansbeck Valley Food Bank AND park in any disk-controlled car park in the country (not just the county)”.
This is not the first time Cllr Best has produced a charity parking disk – when he was Mayor in 2014-15, the year disk-parking was introduced in Morpeth – he sold a limited edition disk in aid of the Samaritans of Northumbria, his chosen mayoral charity then. They sold very well raising some £1200 for the charity and Cllr Best hopes that the new disk will also do well for Wansbeck Valley Food Bank.
The disks are available direct from the Mayor and also from the Town Council at the Town Hall and the Riverside Leisure Centre, and the Mayor is interested in hearing from other potential outlets willing to sell the new disk.
