Big is beautiful for Melksham’s Christmas tree

Melksham's Christmas tree is ready for Saturday 23rd!

Melksham’s Christmas tree is ready for Saturday 23rd!

MELKSHAM’S town Christmas tree has arrived and taken up residence in the Market Place, with some local people saying it looks like Melksham’s tallest ever town Christmas tree. 

Last year was thought to be the tallest tree, but onlookers as the tree was being erected last week, said they felt this year’s could be bigger.

It was chosen, organised and decorated by Melksham’s Christmas Lights Group, who are volunteers that each year turn Melksham into a festive wonderland.

As the tree was put up in the Market Place on Thursday 14th of November, Paul Weymouth, from Melksham Christmas Lights Group said, “This is definitely close to last year’s tree.”

The tree was transported from Longleat on the back of a flat bed lorry.
