The festivities in Wrexham town centre are underway with this year’s Christmas tree arriving on Queens Square this afternoon.
The 30ft+ tree arrived in the town centre shortly after 4pm after making the journey down from Llandegla forest.
It was donated by the Church Commissioners for England from Coed Llandegla which is a managed by Tilhill Forestry and Oneplanet Adventure.
Once again the Christmas tree has been sponsored by Allington Hughes Law – with decorations due to be put in place tomorrow afternoon.
Christmas lights have also been installed across the town centre, including new sets on Queens Street, Regent Street and the High Street.
In July 2017 Wrexham.com reported that £75,000 investment into replacing the town’s ‘barbed wire-esque’ Christmas lights had been backed unanimously by the Executive Board.
It had been assumed that all the lights in the town would be upgraded this year, however in October 2017 it was confirmed that there would be a ‘mixture of old and new’ this year while “rolling programme” of replacements is undertaken.
This Thursday will see the official Christmas light switch on, with celebrations and live entertainment taking place on Queens Square from 4pm!
