Last year I wrote a post sharing how Christmas was looking in Slough, so I thought I would do the same again this year for 2018. There are lots of beautiful trees on display around town, and I am seeing a lot in the reception areas of the offices – but I feel a bit silly to go in and take of photo of them. This is what we have seen around town:
I’ll start off with the tree in Slough’s town square – it’s a 45ft Norwegian spruce Christmas tree. It is huge, you really can’t miss it while you are out and about shopping. The lights on the High Street may be a bit unimpressive, but this tree certainly makes up for it.
Over in our town library, The Curve, there is a very tall tree on the ground floor, surrounded by presents.
As well as the tree is an area decorated in a Beauty and the Beast theme, to go with this year’s pantomime. Tyler saw the panto today with his school and he said it was very funny.
If you look closely inside the transparent baubles, you will see characters from the panto.
Our shopping centre the Queensmere Observatory do bring out the same trees and decs each year. The baubles on the trees are looking scuffed and tired, but the kids still seemed impressed with it.
I do like the colourful bauble wreath. And one day, when we have our swanky new shopping centre, you may miss the old decorations. Yeah, right!
And here is our town square tree in the daylight.
These aren’t all the trees in Slough, there are some lovely ones in the churches and in the windows of shops and offices. There is a huge one inside the Porter Building that looks beautiful – maybe I will go in and take a photo of it.
I’ve also been seeing lovely wreaths on people’s front doors, and if you follow me on Instagram (@sloughitsnotsobad) you’ll have seen some of them.
How is Christmas looking in your town? Have you got a favourite tree?
