CHRISTMAS is the season to be jolly! But for residents in Queensferry, there is no festive cheer being expressed when it comes to the topic of the town’s Christmas tree.

For the tree, perched above the town’s council offices, doesn’t merit a second glance, say some residents. The tree, said to be three metres in height, is barely visible from street level and has been the talk of the town in recent days. In fact the tree is no bigger than many local people would have in their own homes.

And as the town’s annual Christmas celebration is set to launch on the High Street next Thursday, December 1, the tree should have been the focal point. But the event’s organisers have distanced themselves from having nything to do with it.
