2020 Display
This years display is in the planning stage. Due to Corona a lot of repair work has been taking place during our lock down. 


The story of my displays

2020 will be my 6th year and the plan will be to support Help for Heroes again. Although with the state of the world we might have to amend our plans.

2020 
Will see a complete re building of my mega tree no new LED's (total 1,104) the improvement will be the alignment of the LED's. Also major work being done on my star after the total failure in week one of 2019 due to rain damage and an error in building it. 

Watch these pages to see a switch on announcement All will be welcome to come and view.

The 2017/2018 show is over

The lights were switched off on 6th Jan 2018 were be taken down on the Monday. The display has fared well in high winds, snow and rain but it appeared we did have a small fire at the top of the Big tree. The sum of money donated to Help For Heroes was £500.00 + we thank all our supporters.

Pictures of the 2017/2018 "out" (to use a theatrical term for taking down my lights).

Pictures we grabbed during a hard days work for Margaret and I are below. I cant thank Margaret enough for her help. Everything is back in my workshop with a list of running repairs that needs to be done before next December. And then to be stored away. And then start building new elements I am in the process of designing.

We collected for Help For Heroes last year.

Total was £600.00 (plus Gift Aid)
