    In 2015 I arranged for a Christmas Tree to be installed on the Dedworth Rd/ Smiths Lane roundabout.  There were issues with vandalism and electricity supply, but it proved to be a hit with many people and I have made sure that the tree has returned each year. Lots of people make this possible including…
