Council pledges a little Christmas cheer – trees go up around town next week

Christmas trees will still be a focal point in public places across Hastings this year, despite Government’s tighter Covid-19 restrictions.

The trees will be put up in five locations across the town next Thursday (Nov 19th) in preparation for the festive season.

The locations include the town centre, Old Town, and Kings Road. All the trees are 15-30ft high, with the tallest being placed in the town centre.

Hastings Borough Council leader Councillor Kim Forward, says: “We’re pleased to have the Christmas trees up across the town again this year. We know people love seeing them and, as it’s been such a difficult year, we hope these trees can bring a little bit of cheer to residents doing their essential shopping in Hastings during this uncertain period.

“Although we don’t know what the future holds, as the festive season approaches, we hope the trees can be an incentive for our community to ‘shop local’ for those unique Christmas presents.”
