The controversial Christmas tree sellers on Christchurch Green are on their way back, with fencing being put up in readiness on Thursday afternoon.
Last year the sellers raised the ire of many folk who didn’t approve of the green being used for commercial purposes. Some feared it would damage the grass (though this did not seem to happen – see our post from earlier this year).
Wansteadium understands Redbridge Vision has agreed that the same team of sellers as last year will again be operating from the green.
However this year they will face additional competition as trees are to be sold by the Duke pub from the churchyard of St Mary’s Church on Overton Drive, with proceeds going to charity.
