The first of Penarth’s new triple Christmas Trees was installed at the Clock Roundabout this morning . This Christmas shoppers will be able to see what time it is without the big single tr5ee obscuring the town clock l .

Penarth’s new configuration of three Christmas Trees – in place of the previous traditional large single one – appeared on the Clock Roundabout for the first time today.

Today’s trees were being mounted in the special trio of sockets which have been installed on advance on the clock roundabout along with the necessary power supplies.

A full 44  days in advance of Christmas Day, it’s the earliest date on which Penarth’s Christmas conifers have ever been installed.

The new three tree configuration will mean that shoppers and residents will have the advantage of being able to see the clock – normally obscured by previous trees.

Penarth’s famous – but far from perpendicular – Christmas Tree is now history.

The new triple-tree installation brings to an end Penarth’s tradition of having a single tree which, year after year, groundsmen usually installed with a greater degree of inclination than the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Shoppers told PDN that in bad weather, with gales from the East, the swaying giant tree used to “scare the bejesus”  out of them. This Christmas promises to be much less exciting.

    I must say at the moment they”re looking great. Nice height and shape. Hopefully the lights on the trees will be as good.

    Lovely to read such positive comments and praise for our towns preparation for Christmas. Can anyone tell me when Santa arrives?

    • newsnet says:

      Penarth Town Council say that “Santa and Mrs Claus” will be arriving for the Christmas Lights switch-on on Sunday 20th November. These arrangements apparently leave Santa free to fulfil other diary commitments in the following 35 days.
