Kicking off the Festive Season

Anyone feeling festive yet?

This week Liverpool has been kicking off the Christmas season and getting into the festive spirit with the arrival of the Church Street Christmas tree and the opening of the Christmas Markets. Our Greenspaces team did a fabulous job at putting up the 42ft Sitka Spruce on Sunday 19th November, which received a festive makeover this week. The official light switch on took place yesterday evening, along with the installation of the Christmas Crib. Check out the finished results below!

We’ve started putting up the city’s smaller Christmas trees too – 40 in total – 36 of which are 12ft tall and 4 of which are 22ft tall. These will all be up and decorated by the first week of December!

And so we can finally say once again… ‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!’

Street Cleansing colleagues are busy working at Liverpool’s fantastic Christmas Markets, making sure they remain clean and tidy day and night, and servicing all bins on site regularly, during the whole period for which the markets are open.
