When is Christmas coming? In Chandler’s Ford, it’s when the Selwood Christmas tree is up.
The Selwood Christmas tree has been lighting up Chandler’s Ford since 1953. It’s been 70 years. Thank you Selwood for doing this every year, and keeping this wonderful tradition alive for the joy of the local community.
Selwood Christmas tree has been an annual local landmark and a highlight of Christmas in Chandler’s Ford. It boosts our spirit. It brings a smile to commuters, to the young and to the old. The lights bring hope and comfort. Selwood Christmas tree has been with us through some challenging years, especially during Covid. For many of us, a Selwood Christmas tree is a shared memory that we all cherish.
With changes at Selwood and they are due to move out of the headoffice, it’s our hope that we’ll still see a Christmas tree there in the coming years. We hope it is not the last Christmas tree.
What’s your memories of the Selwood Christmas tree?
