The Loyal Tannenbaums

The Brockley Cross Action Group is using Patchwork Present to organise a neighbourhood whip round to buy our own Christmas tree. So if a local tree would boost your festive spirits, click here to contribute what you can. Suzanne writes:

We'd like a big beautiful tree for Brockley this Christmas, and now that councils have stopped paying for Christmas trees we need a bit of help! Just contribute what you can afford and we can all enjoy a lovely tree in our town centre this Christmas. 

The Brockley Christmas Market is organised by the BXAG, a community group and registered charity, and run by unpaid volunteers. The Market is run as an independent event and receives no financial support or subsidy from Lewisham Council.

Hi, where would the tree be placed? Thanks.

The tree will be placed among the planting at Brockley Common, half way up the ramp between Coulgate Street and Brockley station itself. We've found that, as it is an elevated spot, this is the best place to get maximum visibility, both for rail commuters and those passing through by car.

The official lighting of the tree (accompanied by carol singers) will be just after 4pm on Saturday the 13th of December as part of Brockley Christmas Market in Coulgate Street.

I've donated as well. I'm not planning to get a tree for myself this year so there will be something to cheer me up on the way back home :)
