Rosebourne Christmas tree toss is back

by | Dec 17, 2018 | Community, Independents, News | 0 comments

It’s time to choose the perfect Christmas tree, but Rosebourne is thinking ahead to the best way to recycle it.
Following the huge success of its first ever Christmas Tree Throwing Competition at the Weyhill centre in January this year, the company has announced that its second competition will take place on January 5, 2019.
It will also happen at Rosebourne?s new store in Aldermaston.
From 11am to midday on Saturday, January 5, the Christmas Tree Throwing Competition will take place.
Open to all the family, the free competition will see who can throw their tree the furthest distance. Prizes include a free Christmas tree for next year and an afternoon tea for two at Rosebourne. All trees that have been entered into the competition will be recycled by Rosebourne.
Managing Director Neville Prest said: ?Everyone is always downhearted packing the decorations away. We thought we?d launch ourselves into the new year with a little fun by recreating our Christmas Tree throwing competition.
“We?re holding it at both stores and hope that everyone joins us in recycling it in the most fun way possible.?
