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, had been without a Christmas tree for well over ten years. This year 2014 donors stepped forward and brought a great deal of joy to the surrounding community. The battle isn't won yet and we need you to keep on voting as your voice really matters.

It's about time something was said as it was obvious that our little village was being neglected and in danger of rapidly disappearing like the snow in summer.... United we stand... divided we aint got a Christmas Tree.

Please help support our little Yorkshire villages future by SIGNING the Petition below. Many thanks for your help.
