THE Tree of Light is up outside the Congress Theatre.

Signs for public information will be fitted to the railings today. 

Visit to request ribbons and more information.

The Christmas tree outside the Congress Theatre always looks a little different to others around the town, that is because it is a special tree, a “Tree of Light” covered in a host of white lights and dressed with white ribbons in memory of loved ones.

Organisers say: “In what has been a most difficult year for us all, the Rotary Clubs of Eastbourne are pleased to be able to bring our special Christmas Tree to our Community. 

However, due to Covid 19 we are unable to hold our Tree of Light Dedication ceremony in the usual way as we cannot encourage groups of people to meet.  

We will, therefore, be recording the service, including the tying of the ribbons  to share with all our supporters via a web link.”

Full details are on the website.

It bis a very special tree to so many people.
