We present – a bumper Christmas tree

SHARE

It is a giant Christmas parcel – and it is being delivered to you by the Ashburton council. The town’s super-size Christmas tree went up in Baring Square East yesterday – and the tree sits on top of this specially made container, engineered and wrapped by Spraymarks Engineering. When the container is not used as a stand for the tree, it will house the town’s new Christmas decorations. Council community relations manager Vincie Billante said the project would not have been possible without the support of EA Networks, EML and Spraymarks.
