Christmas Tree has Shaky Start

THIS year's Christmas tree on Stranraer's Castle Green has experienced a shaky start. High winds last week caused one of the wedges which hold it in place to slip, leaving the tree looking distinctly lop-sided.

The council's sub-contractors tried to fix the problem on Saturday afternoon, but were unable to because of entertainment taking place nearby.

To top it all, the tree also had its lights pulled down.

But a spokesman for Combined Services said the tree presented no danger to the public and the problems would be ironed out before the end of the week. She said:

"We are checking the tree every day and there is certainly no danger of it falling ­ there are other wedges to hold it in place until the problem is fixed."
