A FAST food giant soon to open in the Tyne Valley is recruiting. 

McDonald's Prudhoe is due to open in July on the town's new Tyneview Retail Park.  

The popular chain confirmed its occupancy at the site in March 2020 and will join B&M Bargains, Caffe Ginevra and Aldi. Greggs is also due to open in the summer. 

Coun. Gordon Stewart, who represents Prudhoe South, is delighted a further range of jobs are coming to the town. He said: "I have been working with the Job Centre Plus team to support local job seekers. 
"This is another example of confidence in the town as we rebuild after the pandemic." 

Plans are still afoot for an outlet in Hexham - meaning two restaurants could be homed in Tynedale after years without.
