RESIDENTS in Crossens are jumping fir joy after fundraisers managed to secure money for a brand new Christmas Tree – something they have waited twenty years for!
Local politicians John Dodd and Nigel Ashton have thanked Crossens Community Association for contributing £750 towards the installation cost of a Christmas tree for the village, which is set to become the first festive fir the village has had for more than two decades.
The tree will be erected on November 23 in front of Crossens Methodist Church. Councillor Ashton said “I am delighted that Crossens Methodist Church have agreed that the Christmas tree can be installed in their grounds.
“We, as local councillors, will pay the remainder of the cost from our Area Committee allocation.

“It shows organisations in the village working together for the good of the local community.”
