    Christmas Tree Bracket

    Whitworth Tourism and Leisure Committee are aiming to extend the Christmas lights offer across the length of the town by installing Christmas Trees, at a subsidised cost to properties around Whitworth. To spread the festive cheer throughout the village, the Committee is hoping that you might consider displaying a Christmas tree on your property this year, which will provide Whitworth with a little more festive sparkle. If you do not already have a bracket on your property, then we can install a bracket for £25 per bracket which will then remain on your property and be yours to keep. We have a limited amount of 10 brackets available.
