THE Town Mill in Lyme Regis has teamed up with Christmas Trees for Life for the festive season.
Christmas Trees for Life is a new, innovative business born out of a love of having a real tree at Christmas and the sadness of it dying. The business rents out pot-grown trees so that the tree carries on living and can be used year after year, growing with your family.
The Town Mill will be taking bookings to adopt a tree in advance of Christmas. A tree can be booked by filling in a booking form and paying the rental and damage/death deposit. Trees up to 3ft are £30 plus £15 refundable deposit, 3ft-5ft are £40 plus £15 refundable deposit, and 5ft-7ft are £50 plus £15 refundable deposit.
Bookings can be made online at www.townmill.org.uk
Trees will be available to choose between December 6 and 8 and families that have already booked will be able to come along and select which tree they want to adopt. Deliveries will the be made on December 9 and trees will be collected on January 5.
The Town Mill recommends choosing a tree on December 6 to avoid disappointment.
Festive events for the whole family
Other festive events taking place at the Town Mill this December will include Christmas wreath-making on Saturday 8 between 2.30pm and 4.30pm. For £20, spend a couple of hours at the mill making your own personal wreath and enjoy a glass of mulled wine.
