Tree of Light 2015 – Sunday December 6, 2015


A special Christmas tree in front of the Congress Theatre will be illuminated by a host of white lights in memory of loved ones.

The popular Tree of Lights takes place each year before Christmas and it is back on December 6 this year.

The event, which is organised by the Rotary Club, give people the chance to dedicate a white ribbon on the tree to a loved one they want to remember.

There is no charge for a dedication but the event supports charity and those making dedications can make a donation to the causes Rotary supports.

Anyone wishing to dedicate a light in memory of a loved one or in honour of a friend or colleague is asked to submit their dedication on the form (right).

People will gather outside The Congress Theatre on December 6 at 4pm for a special dedication service.

At the service, those who have made dedications will have the opportunity to tie a white ribbon on to the tree.

The service will include readings, a choir and The Salvation Army band.
