Morpeth in Bloom

inbloom“Our motto, “Inter Sylvas et Fluminas Habitans”, (Between Woods and Rivers we Dwell), is a true depiction of Morpeth. Morpeth is always in Bloom but during the spring and summer seasons we work with community groups, other local authorities and business in supporting conservation and retaining the natural beauty of our pretty market town.

This year, Morpeth has been selected as a finalist in the national Britain in Bloom competiton.
