Tree Dressing Day

Sat 1st and Sun 2nd December 8-4pm

Come and dress your favourite tree in Shenley Park, either a tree that makes your lives special or any other tree you choose. This event is part of National Tree Week and the Tree Council is once again encouraging people to celebrate wonderful trees that they live with. So come along at any time on Saturday 1st or Sunday 2nd December and decorate your chosen tree, some ideas;

Families when you have completed your tree decorations take a picture and show Alex at the tea room for children to receive a free hot chocolate. Also please post pictures onto our facebook page ShenleyPark, enjoy!*

  • Please take care when decorating the trees, be mindful of both your own safety and the trees. If you could do single knots this would be appreciated for when we take the decorations down in January.
