Continuing the discussion from Kirkdale Christmas Tree Cancelled:
Phew … we have a tree!
Not the tallest Christmas tree in the world. A tree rejected as too small by another part of Lewisham. But saved by the lovely folk at Lewisham’s Highways department and at Skanska and coming to grace the pavement near the Woodman in the next few days.
So a rescue tree rescues Kirkdale’s Christmas. It may be a tiddler to some but I’m sure we’ll welcome and cherish it.
The installation costs are being met mostly by SEE3 and FH Councillors, with a local resident top up. Huge thanks to Geoff Tice at Highways and Adam Benham at Skanska, to our lovely FH Ward Assembly Coordinator Maya Onyett for finding money in the coffers and of course to SEE3 and to FH Councillors.
And thanks to this forum for the support and encouragement.
