Oakham Town Council reveals new-look Christmas tree after years of criticism
A sleek cone-shaped tree will take centre stage in Oakham this Christmas after previous decorations were criticised by the public.
For several years Oakham’s Christmas tree has come under fire for being “an embarrassment” to the town.
Campaigners even set up the Facebook group ‘Give Oakham the Christmas Tree It Deserves’. They said: “This page is to bring attention to the annual embarrassment that is Oakham’s Christmas tree. The tree looks awful and Oakham deserves better.”
