Community Christmas Tree


As a thriving community, receiving visitors from around the world, we want to showcase our area. With this in mind we have investigated the opportunity for a Christmas Tree at the junction of Argyle Street and Haugh Road.

Unfortunately the cost for a tree with lights is in excess of £3,000. This cost included adapting the street light to provide electricity.  In subsequent years, after the site has been adapted, we would expect the cost to be circa £2,000.

Due to the timing of our request with the council, we only had five weeks to raise the funds and so this year (2018) we have been unable to achieve a tree. However, next year we will begin fundraising early to ensure we have our tree in place.

Should anyone wish to make a donation please feel free to contact us via email at
