ADAS, the Audlem District Amenities Society, has been putting Audlem's display of Christmas trees in place this weekend. They started with a delivery of 40 Fraser Fir Christmas trees, now installed on the walls of shops, pubs, houses, churches and other places. These trees have cost around £500. They were dressed at Ralph Warburton's barn in Buerton House by Mike Haines, Mike Hill, Bill Consterdine, Michelle Perkin and Rose Consterdine, plus Ralph Warburton.
Two thousand white pea lights have been fixed to the trees by Mike Haines and Ralph over the last few days. Ralph, along with John Davies and Richard Furber, then harvested the big 40ft tree and transported it to the village. It is a splendid 25-year old Norway Spruce from the plantation of Paul Williams in Hunsterston. It was taken by trailer to the village and then erected by John and Jonathan Gleave with a low loader. It is being dressed with over 4,000 white pea lights – plus over £450 worth of new LED lights. Phil Baker is overseeing and doing all the electrical connections. The help of Pete Townsend and his cherry picker is vital in this. It will be switched on this afternoon.
This year the big tree is sponsored and paid for by Olive & Geoff Stretch, to whom ADAS, and we are sure the whole of Audlem, are most grateful. Once again, ADAS are providing the best Chrsitmas display in South Cheshire.
