Christmas trees for sale

TRADITION: Richard Lilly is among Methven Lions Club members who have been working up a sweat to make sure families in Methven and surrounding areas can buy real Christmas trees.

They smell and look great, and make any home feel like it is really Christmas.

They are real Christmas trees, once again on sale this year in Methven, courtesy of Methven Lions Club.

The annual one-day sale, to be held this Saturday, has become something of an institution in the town, having been held for the last 20 years.

Club member and sale organiser Richard Lilly said he was proud of the efforts of fellow team members who had worked hard to harvest the pine trees this year.

“All the guys have put in a real shift, safely cutting down the trees with chainsaws and transporting them, ready for sale,’’ Lilly said.

“It’s great to keep the tradition going, and all the money raised can go towards more worthy projects,” Lilly said.

There will altogether be about 100 trees to choose from, donated by a local farmer who wishes to remain anonymous.

They come in all shapes and sizes, for the reasonable price of $20 each.

Proceeds go back into the club to be used on future projects.

For anyone who lives in Methven and is unable to transport their purchase, a delivery service will be available.

Any unsold trees will be shifted over to Hammer Hardware on Main St for anyone unable to purchase on Saturday.

Methven Lions Club’s one-day Christmas tree sale is at the Methven Mall this Saturday, from 9am to noon.
