Squire’s Garden Centres in Milford and Badshot Lea (Farnham) are running a competition to see which local school can design the best decorations for a Christmas tree.
Primary school children from across Surrey are taking part, and the children visited Squire’s this week to hang their decorations on a special tree for their school, which is on display in the garden centre. There is a voting box next to the school trees, and customers (as well as friends and family) can vote for their favourite tree between Friday November 25 and Sunday December 4.
Milford Squire’s manager Ricky Bowness said: “It’s no secret that children love Christmas and we hope to inspire pupils to create some truly original designs to celebrate this special time of year.”
Squire’s will announce the winning trees during the week of December 5. The winning schools will receive a certificate plus goody bags packed with Christmas treats for each child that took part.
