Love is in the air for local shoppers

LOVESTRUCK shoppers will be getting into the Valentine’s Day mood in borough town centres this weekend.

Metro Radio’s street team will be handing out free chocolate hearts and roses in North Shields, Wallsend and Whitley Bay on Saturday between 11am and 3pm.

They will also be helping to draw attention to local shops that offer perfect Valentine’s gifts solutions in the borough’s town centres.

Many businesses will be getting into the spirit decorating their shop windows and having their own special Valentine’s surprises.

The activity forms part of a programme of events organised by North Tyneside Council to support town centre businesses.
