Essex town square project will get water, electric...and a Christmas tree!

PUBLISHED: 16:28 27 July 2010

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.

The Dunmow Chamber of Trade and Commerce is looking to expand its popular late-night shopping event on December 3 in order to incorporate singing, dancing and a torch-light Christmas parade.

The event will bring together the whole community, from children and families in the square to shoppers up and down the High Street and carol singing in Market Square.
