WANTED - one Christmas tree measuring about 30 feet high to form the centrepiece of a picturesque Essex village.
That is the major thing on the wish-list of all Finchingfield residents, as with just six weeks to go until Christmas Day they still do not have a special tree for the village.
Resident and annual tree organiser Roy Cox put out the plea, he explained: "Each year a willing team of helpers erect a 30-foot high in the village pond during the first weekend of December.
"Last year's tree had over 1000 lights and it has become a traditional feature of the village.
You may also want to watch:
"The tree has always been donated by someone with a tree growing in their garden which has become too big - but this year no-one has come forward and it feels like something will be missing."
If anyone has a tree that has grown too large (minimum 28 feet) and they would like to donate it to Finchingfield please contact Roy or Alex Cox on 07818 272444.
