2 of my images will appear in the Morpeth charity fundraising calendar this year, following a competition on Facebook. The first is of a community garden in Middle Greens, Morpeth, which rose as a phoenix from the ashes of a weed bed next to one of the pedestrian bridges, and is tended by volunteers. The second is a better-known view, of the Clocktower and Hollon fountain, which is also one of the sculptures I am recording for the Sculpture UK project. The fountain commemorates the generosity of R.W. Hollon of York, who founded an annuity in memory of his wife, a niece of William Trotter, four times mayor of Morpeth. Under the terms of the annuity £10 was given to 13 elderly men and 12 women of good character, and coal provided for the poor.
