It’s Christmas tree time!


The Christmas Forest is back at the Church of the Ascension, selling a broad range of trees from their Scottish tree plantations (including the bargainous option of a less-than-perfect ‘Value Fir’ if you’re willing to go for a funny-shaped ‘character’ tree).  The annual popup business has grown a fair bit over the years from its start at a site in Richmond, and Lavender Hill is now one of ten sites they run across London. They support Tree Aid with a per-sale donation (whose value is unspecified but some suggest around 80p-£1) which plants a tree in the Sahel (south of the Sahara desert) for each sale. They also provide some income to the Church in order to use their garden. As ever, expect to see a lot of people carrying huge trees around the local streets in coming weeks…
