Management have advised that QVM will not be getting its giant live Christmas tree this year. The tree was to be the feature of our Christmas display but expert advice from an arborist and difficulties with securing the tree in its Queen St. location have meant a change of plan.
We will still be getting a tree, but it will be a 9 metre artificial tree with suitable decoration and, according to management, it will be an imposing addition to our Christmas theme.
Of course creating an attractive Christmas destination is not just the responsibility of management. It looks like traders may have to try a little harder with their individual stall decorations to make sure we get the right Christmas look.
