Town to get giant Christmas tree
 
A donation of £500 has received by Epping Town Council from the Rotary Club of Epping towards the cost of a central Christmas tree in the High Street this year.

The tree will be located on the piazza near the water fountain.

Throughout September and October shoppers at the Tesco stores in Epping, Ongar and Theydon Bois can help the town council generate funding to go towards the cost of the Christmas lights this year.

The town council is bidding to bag a cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 - raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores - awarded to local community projects.

Epping Town Council is one of the groups on the latest shortlist with customers in Epping, Ongar and Theydon Bois able to vote, with the money going towards the funding pot for this year's display.

Town clerk Beverley Rumsey said: "Epping Town Council supplies the High Street shop Christmas trees and Christmas lights for Epping. This year we are adding another tree to the list to add that extra sparkle to our lovely town. 

"The town council is delighted Tesco thinks our project is worthy of funding and we will be very grateful for any tokens that are put in our slot."

Customers can cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.
