Tree is a big loss (Sheila Newcombe)
As I have been away quite a bit recently maybe I missed it, but is there a reason for no Christmas tree at the Market Cross in Lerwick?
I know in these times of austerity every saving must be made, but come on, how grim bah humbug can you get?
Forgive me if I’m wrong, but I was always under the impression that our tree was a gift from our very good neighbours in Norway. How bad mannered can that be? “Thanks very much for a very thoughtful gift, but no thanks, we don’t want it!”
Please don’t let this happen again. The small trees on the street are very nice, but the Christmas atmosphere has been lost without the Market Cross tree, and the New Year celebrations will never be the same.
