Councillors step in to save Churchtown's Christmas Tree

Churchtown's traditional Christmas tree has been saved from the scrooges at Sefton Council.

Due to cutbacks the Council decided to axe provision of the Christmas tree and decorations that have provided joy to children and adults alike over the years. Churchtown's Lib Dem councillors, John Dodd, Nigel Ashton and David Rimmer, have voted to use funds from the local area budget to provide the tree, decorations, and lights this year. The three Meols councillors are also supported by councillors from neighbouring Cambridge Ward in ensuring provision of the tree.

Cllr Nigel Ashton said "Christmas in Churchtown wouldn't be the same without our lovely Christmas Tree. I am pleased that we have been able to make sure that there will be a tree again this year and I thank our colleagues in Cambridge Ward for their help with this."
