Caravan-tastic welcome as Shrewsbury’s festive fir returns

Salop Leisure’s Samantha Jones, Ed Glover and Tony Cooke are lighting up local lives this Christmas

MAJOR CARAVAN dealership and park operato the residents of Shrewsbury during the November lockdown.

Weeks earlier than usual, the company has erected its traditional giant Christmas tree alongside the busy Shrewsbury bypass

The company has now switched on the lights of the impressive 40-foot fir – and local reaction has been sparkling said the company’s marketing manager Ed Glover:

“We think that everyone could use a bit of extra festive cheer in these challenging times, which is why we decided to bring the calendar forward this year,” he said.

“More than 10,000 motorists use this stretch of road every day, so it’s certainly getting a lot of attention from drivers and passengers.

“We have already had social media messages from local residents to say how glad they are that the Christmas tree is back this year because they loved seeing it last winter,” said Ed.

Salop Leisure’s Love2Stay holiday park is also joining in the festive fun by staging its popular “Salop Christmas Adventure” once again this year.
