Festive designs are top of the tree

The Miners’ Rest at Chasetown has been chosen as the winner of the competition to find Burntwood’s best-dressed Christmas tree organised by Lichfield District Council. The pub has been rewarded with a hamper of goodies from the Lichfield Tea Company.

The runners up in the competition, judged by Councillors Iain Eadie and Darren Ennis, were Wade Construction who went the extra mile and dressed their tree with a hard hat, reflective jacket and boots in keeping with their industry.

Councillor Iain Eadie, Cabinet Member responsible for Visitor Economy, said

“It was great to see the festive entries from Burntwood businesses for this competition, and it was a really hard choice to pick just one winner. The tree at the Miner’s Rest stood out to both councillor Ennis and I for its traditional Christmas feeling, so we really hope everyone who can will pop in and see the tree and meet the great team there this Christmas. It was a close call though after seeing the great effort Wade Construction put into their tree’s outfit – it was a very well dressed tree!”
