Memory Tree

As in previous years, Saffron Walden Town Council is offering the opportunity for you to add a personal message to the town’s Christmas Tree in the Market Place.   Wooden decorations can be purchased from the Tourist Information Centre or at Peasgood & Skeates in the High Street or on Shire Hill, for a suggested minimum donation of £2. After writing your chosen words or dedication arrangements will be made for it to be hung on the tree.

This is the sixth year of the “Memory Tree” and the Town Council are grateful to Peasgood & Skeates for their continued sponsorship of the initiative. The funds raised will be given to the Mayor’s Appeal, which this year focuses on Uttlesford Citizens’ Advice, Support 4 Sight and Accuro. In previous years messages have been left in memory of people who have passed away, also for pets. It is often a comfort to those left behind to feel that the town still remembers their loved ones at this festive but also potentially poignant time of year.

Decorations will be on sale until 1pm on Christmas Eve, and this year include two smaller, white painted options featuring angels and reindeer
