Cardboard Christmas Tree Challenge

Families are getting into the festive spirit this year with Wiltshire Council's Cardboard Christmas Tree Challenge at children's centres and libraries across Wiltshire.

The cardboard trees have arrived at the children's centres and libraries taking part and children and their families will get creative in a bid to create a colourful and unique tree even the elves would be proud of.  

All children and their families are welcome to any of the sessions (booking is required for one session):

  • Friday 7 December 10:15am-11:15am - Amesbury Library
  • Monday 10 December 10am-11:30am - Spurgeons Forest Community Centre Melksham
  • Thursday 13 December 10am-11am - The Rise Frogwell Children's Centre
  • Saturday 15 December 10am-11am - Trowbridge Library Christmas Hullabaloo (booking required - £1.50 per child)

To book for the Christmas Hullabaloo at Trowbridge Library, contact the library on 01225 716700. There will also be a festive fancy dress competition with a prize for the best home-made outfit and the chance to meet Santa and receive a gift.

The trees will go on display at County Hall in the library, Trowbridge, on 15 December for everyone to enjoy. People can vote for their favourite tree on the council's Facebook page or by using voting slips at reception.

The winning entry will receive a special prize and a gold certificate. Certificates will also be presented to runners-up.

The winner will be declared on 20 December
