Newton-le-Willows launches a knitted Christmas tree
4:20pm Thursday 5th December 2013 in News
A CHRISTMAS tree with a difference will be unveiled on Wednesday (Dec 11) at Heald Farm Court retirement village in Newton-le-Willows.
Pupils from St Mary’s Junior School will reveal the hand-crafted knitted tree when they arrive at the Sturgess Street complex to sing for tenants.
Activity co-ordinator Paul Barrett explained how residents have created the tree which has 400 leaves, baubles, snowmen and Father Christmas. He’s also hoping that people will take the opportunity to take a look at the residents’ amazing handiwork which will be on display from 2pm.
He said: “This is a fantastic achievement and proves there is more to retirement than tea, bingo and Countdown!”
