It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas as town’s trees arrive

Christmas trees for display in Hastings were delivered and put up in five locations across the town on Friday November 22nd in preparation for the festive season.

The trees have been placed in the town centre (outside Debenhams), Courthouse Street, Butlers Gap (George Street), Kings Road and Hastings Cemetery. All of the trees are 15-30ft high, with the tallest in the Town Centre.

A council spokesman said: “We’re excited to have the Christmas trees up across the town again this year. We know people love seeing the trees and they really bring the festive spirit to Hastings.

“We also want to remind people to recycle their own Christmas trees after the festivities end. These provide environmentally friendly mulch for the winter gardens in our parks. You can recycle your Christmas Trees at Harmers lane from Tuesday 31 December 2019 to Monday 13 January 2020.”
