Tree arrives to make Christmas time official
10:00am Wednesday 18th December 2013 in News
CHRISTMAS has arrived in Manningtree in the shape of traditional Christmas tree.
The tree has been decorated with bells, tinsel and lights.
It was donated by Fred Smith’s of Boxted and put up and decorated with a little help from the community.
The tree was organised by Business Chamber boss Jenine Collier.
A local farmer helped lift Jenine up in a fork lift 'box' to decorate the tree, which is on the corner of South Street.
She said: “It is a lovely traditional tree to go along with our Christmas event.”
