Crosspool residents bring their trees for shredding and recycling

Thanks to everyone who brought their tree down for recycling on Sunday and made a small donation.

Shredding and recycling was carried out by our local tree specialist and firewood supplier Andy Fisher of Complete Tree Solutions.

The donated money went towards the recycling of the trees and the purchase of the new LED lights which could be seen on the trees in the precinct over Christmas.

A big thank you goes to all our local businesses for their continued support displaying the Christmas trees each year and also to the team of volunteers who helped put them up and take them down.

Thanks for all your Christmas trees

Andrew Fisher and his crew of volunteers worked tirelessly for an hour and half shredding Christmas trees this afternoon to raise funds for the Crosspool Forum.

Over 120 trees were left by residents outside Direct Travel, with quite a number being over 8ft tall.

Money raised will help provide hanging baskets and floral displays in the Crosspool precinct.

On behalf of all who have and will benefit from their kindness, a big big thank you to Andrew (Complete Tree Solutions) and to Paul at (Direct Travel) for the use of the car park.

Please reciprocate their kindness by supporting these local services.
