They are designed to enhance the gateway into Wooler and entice people into the town centre from the A697, which passes close by.

They are part of a town-twinning project involving Wooler and Broughshane in Northern Ireland, funded by Carnegie UK – though the planters themselves were provided by Wooler councillor Anthony Murray.

“They have already attracted a lot of attention and positive comments,” said Coun Murray.

He added: “It’s good we got them up in time for the Glendale Festival (which takes place this weekend).

“The project builds on the work of Wooler parish councillor Catherine Dunn and local shopkeepers who have made a fantastic job of planting window boxes and flower tubs around the town.”
