Merry Christmas one and all!

This is not a traditional Christmas tree by any means as it is constructed from 600 plastic bottles kindly donated by Wessex Water!

It really is quite a talking point in the town of Chichester in West Sussex, a place we visited earlier today.

Happy Christmas everyone!

What a remarkable tree, such a simple concept yet with amazing impact both visually and intellectually, very impressive! With so much rain and flooding around at the moment it is extremely appropriate too. May I add my good wishes to everyone for a very happy Christmas too, have a healthy and merry ol' time, one and all :-)

Hello Andy, I hope you are well and looking forward to the festive season! We have been reminiscing on Mum's hilarious attempts at charades in past years ... great times ... :o)

What a marvelous idea and so effective. I bet your Mum would have enjoyed it! The people who recycle Christmas trees will scratch their heads over that one...
