DENBIGH Town Council has announced it won’t be placing Christmas trees on the roundabouts leading into the town this year, in order to save money.

Following a recent meeting during which councillors discussed the proposal, it was agreed that the decision to not display the trees was best as it would “save more than £2500” over the five weeks the Christmas lights will be on for.

With the lights being switched on at the Town Hall from 6pm on November 29, the council has decided that any savings made from not putting the trees up will be used on other upcoming projects.

A spokesperson for Denbigh Town Council said: “Following a recent town council meeting, Denbigh Town Councillors have agreed not to have Christmas trees this year on the roundabouts entering the town.

“This will save over £2500 over the five weeks that the Christmas lights are on in addition to saving on some electricity costs. This savings will be used on other projects the town council are currently working on.”

The Denbigh Christmas light switch on takes place from 6pm at the Town Hall on Friday, November 29.

The event will include a visit from Father Christmas, various stalls including The Micro Cakery and plenty of music, activities and a fair ground for all the family to enjoy!
