Friends of Victoria Park are holding a festive Christmas Tree decorating event in Victoria Park at 11am on Saturday 16 December can the event will be rounded off with a few Christmas carols and songs.

They introduced this event last year and the tree close to the beautiful Oswald Clock at the small pond was a very cheerful sight over the festive period.

They have sprayed some pine cones and have ribbons ready to hang them up but they would also welcome any spare decorations or even better, some home made ones. If they have too many they might do up two trees to really put us all in a festive mood.

Children are very welcome accompanied by an adult. More information on their website.

The local Councillors in the area run regular, monthly surgeries for members of the public to pop along and raise issues or ask them questions.
