Once hailed as the "Queen Of Villages" during the reign of Queen Victoria, Wath-upon-Dearne, a small rural village, in the upper division of Strafforth and Tickhill, 6 miles North of Rotherham, has been without a Christmas tree by courtesy of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) for many years.
It's about time something was said as its obvious that our little village is being neglected and in danger of rapidly disapearing like the snow in summer.... United we stand... divided we aint got a Christmas Tree.
its part and package of what Christmas is about .so please bring our tree back the people of wath deserve one like any other village or town in the uk and thanks .

- Petition has reached 250 signatures!
- Now that the market has been moved into the centre of Wath, I think it is the idea opportunity to bring back the tree and give us all a real sense of community. Something that is sadly lacking in this day of cut backs!
