The flooding caused damage to businesses as well as homes
A project aimed at boosting community morale in a Northumberland town badly damaged by flooding has won an award.
The Greater Morpeth Development Trust (GMDT) set up a scheme to bring the whole community together through a range of arts and culture activities.
As well as creating a better social environment, activities also raised money for flood victims.
The trust was honoured at the North East Market Town Award ceremony in Morpeth's refurbished town hall.
The awards - part of the National Market Town Awards, run by Action for Market Towns - each year celebrate volunteer-led projects which help to regenerate and sustain small towns around England.
An outdoor rink was set up during an ice festival
Activities organised by GMDT included heritage events, a walking festival, an ice festival and a recycle rally.
Frances Rowe, from regional development agency One North East, said: "Morpeth was hit badly by the floods with the pride of the town very low during the aftermath.
"So while all the work being carried out to lead the economic recovery of Morpeth was of course essential, this project played an extremely important part in raising morale and restoring pride once again with organisations across the board working together to tackle the aftermath of the crisis.
"The work carried out by GMDT rallied the troops and helped to raise money for flood victims promoting the idea that local people were there for one another through that difficult time."
