What a brilliant idea! Blantyre Community Committee have brought back their popular festive “Ribbon for your Loved One” with remembrance messages for family and friends who sadly aren’t here anymore.
This year, they have some exciting news! Instead of the Christmas tree in Stonefield Public Park having a couple of dozen ribbons, this year it’s going to look AMAZING with HUNDREDS of multicoloured ribbons on it!! Why? Well the cost for doing this is just £1, rather than £5 this year!!
FOR JUST £1.00, THEY WILL GIVE YOU A LENGTH OF FESTIVE RIBBON. YOU SIMPLY WRITE YOUR DEDICATION TO YOUR LOVED ONES, PAST OR PRESENT USING OUR MARKER AND IT WILL BE TIED TO THE BRANCHES OF THIS YEARS CHRISTMAS TREE IN STONEFIELD PUBLIC PARK!
A LOVING MESSAGE TO AN INDIVIDUAL OR SEVERAL PEOPLE ON ONE RIBBON, ITS UP TO YOU.PROCEEDS TO BLANTYRE COMMUNITY COMMITTEE FOR HOSTING FURTHER PUBLIC EVENTS
From this Wednesday, you can buy YOUR ribbon over the counter at the Royal Bank of Scotland, Clydeview Shopping Centre, but of course, you’ll also be able to buy them also immediately beside the Christmas tree at the festive market and lights switch on event on Sunday 27th November.
To see the tree decorated in such a meaningful way is wonderfully heartwarming. We all know people we miss dearly.
A touching and lasting memory throughout the festive season that each year we’ve done this, has always been popular and respected by all. Here’s just a glimpse of what the Blantyre tree looked like last year!
