The mystery of Ballymena's disappearing Christmas trees has been solved. Read on ...
It seems that a health and safety review discovered that the trunks of the trees were cracked and obviously posed a danger.
New trees will be on site soon.
The local Ulster Unionist branch has already pointed out that the tree has gone up before Poppy Day .. which they deem improper.
Now it seems that all lights will be switched off as a mark of respect when ex-servicemen parade through the town to the Memorial Park.
Thanks to J for giving me the nod about this...
