Thanks to the efforts of local residents Janice and Rob Gray along with Councillor Andrew Sheldon, Benfleet High Road had a Christmas Tree complete with lights this year, located outside the library. The Christmas Tree was donated by “Daws Heath Timber, for the community.” (Echo news. 11th Dec 2017)
The tree was decorated by the local residents and Councillors in celebration of the festive season. The Benfleet Operatic Society sang carols around the tree, to the delight of local people.
