Writing a few days ago, Councillor David Bairstow tells us:
By now you will have probably seen the Christmas tree at the top of the Balk. I proposed the idea back in January, and it was unanimously backed by the rest of the Parish Council. I installed the support and put the tree up in the last days of November and the lights were switched on on the 1st of December. Massive thanks go to the Parish Council, Andrew Wilson for CAT scanning the area to ensure it was safe to dig for the tree support, Castle Howard for donating the tree and Piers from @environmental_art_studio in Malton who kindly donated his time, expertise and materials to make the tree support.
Merry Christmas to all!
Cllr David Bairstow
