A LARGE Christmas tree will be put up in Goring this year despite the village losing its normal supplier.
Bonnie and Richard Roberts used to arrange it with the Yattendon Estate but they have moved away from the village.
The council has agreed a £600 budget to buy a large tree for Rectory Gardens, off High Street, instead.
Councillors discussed the idea of planting a permanent tree on which to place Christmas lights each year or alternatively a metal one which could be reused.
Council chairman Kevin Bulmer warned that a permanent tree could grow too large.
The council decided to buy a real tree this year and discuss options for future years. It also agreed to spend £200 on the traditional smaller Christmas trees in High Street.
Meanwhile, the council has agreed to extend a traffic speed survey on Wallingford Road to include Station Road. The survey follows concerns raised by residents.
