Christma tree red tape lifted in Denholm

A Christmas tree will finally appear on Denholm Green this weekend, after being given the go-ahead by Scottish Borders Council.

The local authorithy informed the community council that not only would they not provide a tree, but that rules had to be followed to light their own. However, Councillor Stuart Marshall intervened, and a joint effort between the Feurs and community council will erect a tree tomorrow.
