Ipswich Central is delighted to provide the town centre with a real Christmas tree on the Cornhill Square
Provided on behalf of town centre businesses, Ipswich Central works with Ipswich Borough Council and Elveden Estate to install a 50ft Christmas tree on the Cornhill Square in the heart of the town centre. Decorated with over 6,000 lights and over 100 baubles, the tree is beloved by locals and its arrival marks the beginning of the festive season; attracting shoppers to high street.
Our Chief Operating Officer, Sophie Alexander, says:
“We are delighted to work with Elveden Estate to bring a real Christmas tree to the Cornhill, with thanks to Ipswich Borough Council for all their support. The tree is one of the biggest in Suffolk and is a real draw for shoppers who want to feel the spirit of Christmas in Ipswich when Christmas shopping.”
The tree is ethically sourced by local organisation Elveden Estate, who protect and sustainably manage forest areas across Suffolk, East Anglia and the UK. When the tree leaves Ipswich, it is recycled into biodegradable mulch which is used to replenish the forests, landscapes and parks managed by the Elveden Estate.
The Christmas tree is part-funded by Ipswich Borough Council and New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) as part on the ongoing Cornhill Events & Enlivenment Project.
