Essex town square project will get water, electric...and a Christmas tree!
A FLAGSHIP project to rejuvenate a town centre will get some extra additions before it is unveiled to the public.
Great Dunmow’s new town square well have extra bells and whistles in the shape of a water pipe for a fountain and a deep fixing point and electric socket for a large Christmas tree.
Both aspects are being encompassed in the current building project which will be completed by the end of August with a view to an official celebrity opening in late September.
Although a fountain will not be put in immediately the pipe means that when, at a later date, the town council decide a water feature is possible, nothing will have to be dug up.
However, preparations for a town Christmas extravaganza have been boosted by the welcome addition of a place for a central tree.
