Council Chair, Cllr Doug Banks, said: “I’d like to thank A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products for donating yet another magnificent tree to help us mark the festive season.

“It has been another difficult year for all of Eden’s residents, so the celebrations we mark over the Christmas period, including Hanukkah, the Winter Solstice and New Year’s Day, are especially important, as we look forward to better times in 2023.

“Thanks must also go to Urbaser for helping to get the tree looking so attractive with its bright twinkling lights. On behalf of Eden District Council, I’d like to wish everyone in Eden a very happy Christmas.”

A.W. Jenkinson Forest Products’ Senior Woodfibre Manager, Simon Bullock, said: “It gives us great joy to donate the civic tree once again. As a forestry business, it’s the least we could do to bring a little bit of festive cheer to the people of Penrith. We hope everyone has a happy and peaceful Christmas.”
