Tree of Thought returns

Bridgnorth Rotary Club’s Tree of Thought is a very special part of the town’s annual festivities, especially for those whose loved ones come to mind at this time of year. Local people can remember loved ones by dedicating a tag to them to add to the tree and making a donation to cancer support charity Macmillan.

“People can inscribe their tag in memory of someone who has passed away, or to a friend or family member who’s far away, ill or in hospital, or on duty overseas, and is in their thoughts at Christmas and throughout the year,” explains Rotary’s Amanda Johnson.

The Tree of Thought is sponsored by the Rotary Club and supported by Real Bridgnorth Windows. Rotary president Robin Nettleton says, “We’re so pleased to be associated with this worthwhile activity which facilitates reflective thought and supports Macmillan for the benefit of people in and around Bridgnorth. Bridgnorth Rotary Club have also provided Christmas trees for the town for 50 years and once again we’re providing three trees; two located in the High Street and one in Low Town, at Coach House Corner in St John’s Street.”

If you would like to make a dedication, you can find a form in our Nov/Dec issue, or you can email rotary@rotaryinbridgnorth.co.uk or call secretary Elwyn Jones on 01746 76624.
