Park & Ride Christmas 2016

Park & Ride Christmas 2016

On Saturday 10th and 17th December, Morpeth & District Chamber of Trade and Sanderson Arcade will be funding a free “Park and Ride” scheme 11am - 5pm for Christmas shoppers.

A double decker bus from Arriva will run from County Hall to Morpeth Bus Station.


The free shuttle service will run from County Hall to Morpeth Bus Station ensuring shoppers can enjoy some stress free Christmas shopping on the two busiest Saturdays of the year. 

There’s even a special drop off service to help shoppers with heavy items – this service will be available from the terrace area outside Morpeth Larder at Sanderson Arcade every hour from 12pm. 

The Christmas park and ride service has been organised by the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade and Sanderson Arcade through the Morpeth Town Team.

Chamber of Trade Chai, Jacky Beesley, said: “We wanted to offer this service on this two busy Saturdays to make Christmas shopping as enjoyable and hassle free as possible for people who want to come into Morpeth and enjoy our lovely town centre.

“Morpeth looks beautiful all lit up for Christmas and we want shoppers to be able to beat the crowds in the car park and be able to enjoy the experience.”

The service will run as a constant shuttle on both days from 11am to 5pm.
