Glittering Awards Evening Celebrates Morpeth Businesses

20 October 2017

The winners in the second annual Heart of Morpeth business awards have been announced at a glittering gala evening at the town’s Riverside Lodge.

Nine awards were given to businesses across the town at the ceremony held on Thursday 19th October with entrants judged on everything from customer service to community engagement.

The coveted Business of the Year Award, which is voted for by the public, was won by Laura Anderson Hair and Beauty Salon.

The awards ceremony was organised by partners Morpeth Town Team, Morpeth & District Chamber of Trade and Sanderson Arcade to celebrate and recognise excellence among the retail, service, professional and hospitality businesses based in the heart of Morpeth.

The long standing sponsor of the evening was Cookswell Citroen from Pegswood while the individual awards were also sponsored by local businesses and organisations – the evening was hosted by Matt Bailey from Capital FM.

Jacky Calder-Rice, the outgoing chairman of the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade, spoke at the event of the tough challenges the town had faced this year in fighting the threat from the proposals for retail park on the edge of the town which were later quashed.

Jacky said: “It has been a really eventful year for Morpeth – the Heart of Morpeth Business Awards and the success of the Food Festival earlier in the month show what we can really achieve when we all work together and pull together.

“We had some fantastic entries again this year which is testament to the strong and thriving business community we have in the town.

A huge congratulations to all the businesses who won awards, we really do have some terrific businesses here in Morpeth. We would also like to say a big thankyou to the sponsors who make this fantastic event possible.”
