Many thanks Morson, says nursery

BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE:  Gosforth Nursery was delighted to receive a cheque for £1,000 from Morson Projects Limited. The company, based at Greengarth Business Park, Holmrook, raised the money at its annual Sportsman’s Dinner at the Bridge Inn last November. The dinners are held in aid of local charities and good causes and used to be organised by Phil Turner, the Morson Projects charity committee chairman. Phil died last January and so the 2007 dinner was organised by Ian Ross, in aid of Gosforth Nursery and the Phil Turner Memorial Fund, each receiving a cheque for £1,000.
