Wilford Christmas tree lights switched on

Children, councillors and local police attended a Christmas tree lighting in Wilford yesterday.

The tree was lit up on Tuesday evening to the accompaniment of the children of South Wilford Primary School who sang carols and played bells beautifully.

There was a choir from The Nottingham Emmanuel School whose singing was also outstanding.

Organisers thank the teachers who facilitated this.

Thanks are also due to the three local councillors, Andrew Rule, Roger Steel and Josh Cook who paid for the tree, and to Prairie and Abdul of the City Council who set things up.

The local police attended to switch the lights on after an enthusiastic countdown from the local children.

Reverend Phil Marsh had the crowd singing carols, and the Co-op provided mince pies. Mother Christmas handed out sweets to the local children courtesy of the Wilford Community Group.

Grateful thanks to The Tailors Arms for their hospitality and for keeping the tree alight for the community.
