Trees, Holly and Mistletoe

 The pace of the Christmas preparations is speeding up and now is the time buy your tree, holly wreath and a sprig of mistletoe to welcome in the festive season.  And what better place to stock up than at our local greengrocer and florist shop in Drift Road.

Nigel Hadwen has plenty of stock in his shop – great trees, all top quality and good prices.  In fact, it was difficult to get a clear photograph of him yesterday amongst the trees - that’s him peering through the branches! 

Nigel has been the driving force behind planting Christmas trees in Drift Road and Green Lane this year.  During the spring he sourced and organised the construction of large wooden planters on the shop forecourts, ensuring they were filled with colourful flowers, before planting the festive trees surrounded with lights.  Nigel has brought us all a bit of Christmas cheer and lit up our village!

And don’t forget the Christmas flowers at Nigel’s shop. Jenny, the florist, is taking orders now for beautiful bouquets, in time for Christmas, for that special person in your life.  Girls – if your fella is just hopeless at thinking ahead then ‘cut out the middle man’ and order your own flowers but charge it to his credit card – simple solution to an age-old problem!

Shop locally this Christmas as you enjoy the festive lights in our village.
