Thirtysixth night in Boldron
Thirtysixth night in Boldron
Work continues apace to remove the christmas tree from the village green before January is out. Challenged with "Goodness, is it twelfth night already ?" a Parish Council spokesman replied "It's Candlemass - we've missed twelfth night". I didn't want to argue with that - he, after all, had the chainsaw ! A large excavator was originally used to lower the tree into its hole in the ground (much reinforced after last year's tree blew over before christmas), but the cheap solution for taking it down seems to be to reduce it to kit (or compostable) form with big loppers and a saw. At least it hasn't dropped its needles everywhere like an indoor tree.
