O Christmas Tree!

2nd December 2022

This year at Chesnut Lodge we wanted to go that little bit extra at Christmas. We though “how can we bring even more magic this Christmas to our wonderful pupils?"

Then it hit us, A REAL CHRITSMAS TREE! 

So we made it our mission to get Chesnut Lodge a real Christmas tree this year.

Oak Tyres in Newton-le-Willows very kindly offered to donate the funds to buy our tree. They believe in the magic of Christmas just as much as we do. So they jumped at the chance to help us out.

The children in Beethoven class were the lucky few who were selected to go and choose our tree. Lymm Metals Ltd, a local metal company, made a generous donation towards the cost of transport, and so we were able to head off in search of a tree.

We contacted Rainford Christmas Tree Land who were delighted to hear from us. They invited us down to their field where the trees has been growing all year.

Beethoven class searched through the 1000s of trees they have. We spoke about the size of each tree; would it be too big, too small, too fat, or too thin? Until finally, buried deep in the forest of trees, we found the perfect one. Straight away we knew this was the tree for Chesnut Lodge. It was the perfect size, shape, and colour and most importantly it had that real Christmas tree smell.

The tree was then delivered to school the following week. Everyone was so pleased with our choice. During Elf Day every class came together for the Christmas tree decorating service. The classes had outdone themselves with their beautiful items to place on the tree and it now proudly stands in our hall for all to see and admire.

Once again thank you to Oak Tyres for their amazing donation towards our tree, and to Lymm Metals Ltd for their contribution towards our trip.

It really is going to be a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
