Sorry I didn't know about your grief. Afraid that I cannot enter anything as I don't live near a town and our village doesn't really do that sort of thing, but I hope the challenge attracts many entries.

Just back from shopping and found the council cutting down the Christmas tree on asking I was told that the new tree will be the Forth this year complaints that No. 1 was sparse resulted in it being replaced the second tree had a split after being put up so H&S said it had to come down this one also has a problem so a new one will be put up. Talk of a plastic tree and we live near one of N. Irelands main forests???

Really only a bump for this competition!!!
