Condor Ferries ship in Christmas tree  FOC
by Jeff Hathaway

A GREAT gesture from Condor Ferries has ensured that St. Brelade will have one of the largest Christmas trees ever (a twenty-footer) outside the Parish Hall this year, to enhance the lighting display and event organised by St. Aubin resident Murray Norton in association with Condor Ferries to raise funds for several local charities. The tree itself has been sponsored by Jersey Harbours in an initiative that is hoped can extended to other Jersey harbours in future years.

Parish Constable, Steve Pallett said: "It is a very generous and welcome offer and will greatly improve the Christmas atmosphere in St. Aubin for the planned celebrations over the festive period but particulary as a backdrop to the fundraising event." The event will be taking place on 13th December at which Condor are also planning to provide a mobile stage for a choir who will be singing Christmas Carols and festive songs. There will also be stalls selling hot chestnuts, oysters, mince pies, mulled wine, other festive fayre and various seasonal gift items - all to raise funds.

"Other events and activities in and around the Parish Hall over the festive season include a Grand Fireworks Display to see in the New Year. The fireworks have been funded by local traders in the area and I believe that this is the first time that such a celebration has taken place." Said Constable Pallett.
