Thanks to weather conditions this year, the organisers of Birmingham’s famous Frankfurt Christmas Market have a supply of Christmas trees that are still in nearly-new condition.
As the market packs up for another year, the organisers want the trees to be re-used if at all possible, so they do not have to be recycled into wood chippings before the end of their useful life.
If you are still after a tree just before Christmas, you can pick one up free of charge – on offer on a first-come, first-served basis. The details of where to collect the trees from are as follows:
Date: Monday 24 December
Location: Outside the Apple Store on New Street
