Hollon Tea tradition now revived in Morpeth

A TOWN tradition has been revived after a break of several years.

A TOWN tradition has been revived after a break of several years.

It was in 1881 that Richard Hollon donated a sum of money for the benefit of the elderly people of Morpeth, Northumberland.

This was in memory of his late wife, Mary, who was born in the town.

It was in recognition of his generosity that the Hollon Fountain, currently in front of the Clock Tower, was erected from public subscriptions.

Now, under a new team of trustees, the Hollon Tea took place again in Morpeth Town Hall.

Trustee Barbara Pringle said: “It is wonderful that the Hollon Tea has been resurrected.”
