Harold Wood Library celebrates 50 years with a Christmas tree
A CHRISTMAS tree has been planted outside Harold Wood Library to mark its 50th anniversary this weekend.
Today, Havering Mayor Councillor Pam Light, who had the tree planted in her honour, will be joining staff there to celebrate the anniversary.
Each Havering Mayor is able to plant a tree at a location of their choice during their mayoral year and this was the spot Councillor Light chose.
It was decorated by Councillor Light and library staff on Thursday, December 16.
They were helped by a local chip shop and beauty salon and other businesses which donated decorations to transform the tree for the festive season.
Councillor Light said: “I am glad that we could work with the businesses to see this beautiful tree planted in Harold Wood, which can be enjoyed for years to come.
“Harold Wood Library is not just a library, it is right at the heart of the community and is very well used. I hope all residents will enjoy the tree, and help us celebrate the library’s anniversary.”
