Ludlow Tree of Light

 Ludlow Rotary Club Tree of Light 

Each year Ludlow Rotary Club creates an opportunity for individuals and families to make personal dedications to a special person, to the memory of a loved one or to celebrate a special occasion, such as a birth or anniversary. 2017 was the tenth year that the Club, in collaboration with Ludlow Town Council, has organised the Ludlow Tree of Light. Originally in 2008 it was a large tree, selected and felled by the Forestry Commission and erected in the Castle Square. In 2011 it was decided to illuminate Castle Gardens as part of the Town Christmas lighting scheme and within the gardens a venerable old yew tree was designated as the Tree of Light.

Designed by Dan Chubb

The official Switch-On of the Tree of Light, which usually takes place immediately after the switching on of the Town lights at 5pm, on the evening of the Medieval Fayre on the last Saturday in November.

A complete list of dedications is published in the Ludlow Advertiser, recorded on the Ludlow Rotary Club website and featured in a Book of Remembrance which is kept in St Laurence’s Church throughout the year.

The Tree of Light is not just about raising money but provides the people of Ludlow with a beautiful decorated tree and a special place to come and remember someone dear or celebrate an occasion, and in doing so bring comfort to families and individuals throughout the area. The money raised in 2017 year was for Hope House Children’s Hospice

Details of dedications made in 2017 can found on the Tree of Light Dedications 2017 page
