Port of Blyth Annual Public Meeting 2020 Summary


Port of Blyth held its Annual Public Meeting 2020 this week, hosting it online for the first time as a result of COVID-19 welcoming all stakeholders including the community of Blyth to hear news of the Port’s performance in 2019 and its exciting plans for the future.
