A huge lorry pulled up outside the Arcade this morning, with an equally huge tree on the back. Bystanders watched as the small team of men strapped the tree to the crane and lifted it into place in only a matter of minutes. At 30 feet tall, the tree will be the centre of attention when the lights up and down the High Street are officially switched on in the evening of the 30th November. Don't forget to buy tickets for the grand prize draw which helps to pay for Hungerford's fantastic lights. As always the lights are organised and overseen by Rod Demeules, a real community player and we would like to thank him for all his hard work.
