WARWICK mayor Neale Murphy and Rotary Club president David Brain welcomed over a 100 people to a service of dedication for the Lights of Love on the town Christmas tree.
Warwick Community Band provided the music and children from Emscote Voices choir accompanied them for a short carol service in Market Square on Sunday led by Rev Vaughan Roberts, vicar of St Mary’s, while town clerk Jayne Topham made a reading
Fortunately, the rain held off and as the sun set the lights on the Christmas tree were turned on. The tree donated by Barn Close Nurseries, is now covered with cards donated by people remembering loved ones and will be left up until the New Year.
There is still time to place a card on the tree to remember those you have loved, please complete a form and return to the Tourist Office, Claridges, Torreys, or the Post Office in Warwick. They will stay on the tree until January 2..
Proceeds will be shared between the mayor’s charities and Myton Hospice. Names of those remembered on the tree are shown next to the tree, and on the Rotary website – www.warwickrotary.org.uk
