The Forum Volunteer Marshalls efficiently helped ensure that everything ran smoothly and thanked everyone for their cooperation with the request to wear a Face Covering, observe Social Distancing, waiting patiently in the one-way queue to Drop off a Christmas Tree and for not hanging around or gathering Socially. Everyone’s support and willingness to help everybody keep safe during the tree recycling was really appreciated.
Every recycled Christmas tree helped protect the environment, providing chippings to be used locally as Mulch in the flower beds and woodland areas of Lydgate green.
