A Christmas tree grower from Shamley Green has delivered a tree to take up residence in Number 10 Downing Street.

Santa Fir Christmas Tree Farm’s Hans Alexandersen and his family won the honour of presenting a Christmas tree to Number 10’s Pillared Room following success in the British Christmas Tree Growers Association Competition.

“We’re delighted to know that one of our own trees has pride of place inside such a beautiful room at one of the country’s most famous residences,” says Hans.

The BCTGA was established in 1979 to provide a quality standard for Christmas tree growers in the UK and champions the purchase of real sustainable Christmas trees.
