Hastings Borough Council has taken delivery of the public Christmas trees for the town. They arrived this morning (Thursday 15 November), and were erected in the town centre, Butlers Gap and Courthouse Street in the Old Town, Kings Road, and St Leonards. They are all 15 – 30 feet high Norway spruce.
Cllr Colin Fitzgerald, the lead councillor for environmental services said :- “It’s always a pleasure to see the seasonal decorations go up! We are encouraging people to shop in our town, and support the local retail trade, and our Christmas trees really add to the festive atmosphere. We are especially grateful to the local Lions Club who contribute £750 towards the town centre Christmas tree and lights.
“And don’t forget to recycle your tree in Harmers Lane when the festivities finish! The recycled trees provide environment friendly valuable mulch for the winter gardens in our parks. You can recycle your tree from 31 Dec until 14 January 2019.
