The Advent tree has now been started in the Park; we would encourage people to take the opportunity to now add their own decorations as they pass, and make a wish for the season and the coming year. You can be as artistic, or not, as you like. The idea is to create a colourful seasonal display that residents have done between them – as the season goes on, so the ‘artwork’ should hopefully grow.
Thank you to the people who came out on a cold, damp Saturday afternoon to start dressing the tree – particularly the children who had made and hung their own decorations. Thank you as well to the ladies who have made some of the more intricate decorations and bunting.
Friends have now also laboured to put down wood chippings on the paths that will be most used for the Lantern Parade.
Thank you to the dog walkers who were commandeered to take a wheelbarrow of chipping to a suitable spot, as they came through the gate: especially Steve who took and filled a number of
barrows up and down the hill
