Extra Christmas tree to be installed

Worcester City Council is set to bring even more festive joy to the city, with the installation of an additional decorated Christmas Tree at the bullring roundabout, on the border of the St John’s and Bedwardine areas of the city.

This will be in addition to the illuminations already in place on the large, permanent tree at the roundabout.

Council Leader Cllr Marc Bayliss took the decision to reinstate the Christmas Tree on the roundabout, where one has regularly been displayed in previous years.

Cllr Bayliss said: “It is a tradition to have that tree on the bullring roundabout and I have asked Council officers to find us a tree that can be put there.

“I am looking forward to it adding hugely to the festive spirit in St John’s and Bedwardine.”

The additional tree is expected to be in place on 10 December.

The City Council is this year investing £35,000 in festive lights, decorations and trees to entice more visitors to Worcester this Christmas.

There are decorated trees by the Cathedral, in St. Andrew’s Gardens, Gheluvelt Park and in front of the Guildhall, as well as 24 lit trees above shops and businesses throughout St John’s to help boost the festive atmosphere in the area.
