Some of the Christmas lights erected around the branches in four of the trees at St Georges Cross have been recently vandalized. Lamps and cabling in three of the trees will have to be replaced. Your Community Council is seeking costs for the project and will then try to resource funding for the works hopefully in time for Christmas this year.
The lighting was installed in 2010 at the instigation of the late Councillor George Roberts and has provided welcome festive cheer at the main intersection of our neighbourhood. It has also been the focus of a charming little switch-on ceremony each December attended by our local primary school and nursery school children.
