New Berwick hoardings promote Alnwick museum
New hoardings promoting Northumberland County Council's investment in Berwick have gone up.
However, there appears to have been a geographical mix-up as the signs also promote the council’s investment at the Bailiffgate Museum - in Alnwick!
The hoardings have been put up around the former Kwik Save site on Walkergate which is currently being turned into new office accommodation.
They feature large images of council leader Grant Davey and deputy Dave Ledger, who is also chairman of Arch.
Under a heading of ‘Investing in Your Towns’, the signs say ‘focusing on the development of tourism and business to enable Berwick to prosper in the future, while preserving the border town’s rich and proud heritage’.
On it, Cllr Davey says: ‘Investing in our towns now and for the future; creating jobs and great places to live, work and visit’.

Another hoarding, featuring Cllr Ledger, highlights work done to refurbish McDonald House on Wallace Green, creating a modern back office facility for a number of council and NHS services.
It also highlights new office accommodation on the old Kwik Save site, attracting business investment.
However, it also promotes support for Bailiffgate Museum, enabling it to remain open throughout the year.
Cllr Ledger says: ‘A prosperous future for our towns, making the vision a reality’.
