Yes, that’s right. The kind, jovial and youthful souls of the Norton & Gaulby Young Farmers have set up a Christmas Tree recycling service. For just a fiver, they will collect your tree from outside your home on the weekend of 12th and 13th January, take it away and recycle it, with all proceeds going to charity.

The superb service covers an area from Kilworth and Arnesby in the west, to Tilton on the Hill and Braunstone in Rutland to the north, Caldecott and Rushton to the east, and Kelmarsh in the south.

We think this is a great idea and worth £5 of anyone’s money. If you live anywhere within that rather generously large region, be sure to book your recycle collection at the Young Farmers’ booth on site at the Christmas Barn.
