The Town Council Christmas Tree and Christmas lights add atmosphere and sparkle to the town over the festive period. Each year we focus on how we can deliver that much loved ‘sparkle’ whilst minimising the environmental impact.

In line with our environmental strategy our chosen contractor follows our principals of ‘Reduce, Re-use and Recycle’ wherever possible and is committed to minimising the adverse environmental impacts of its activities.

By using LED lighting, we not only reduce our energy requirements (they use less than 10% of the energy of the old style filament lighting), but reduce the environmental impact further as LEDs are more reliable and last longer thus cutting down on energy consuming maintenance and replacements.
