Ludlow Rotary Club Tree of Light 2016

On behalf of Ludlow Rotary Club, we would like to express our thanks and appreciation to everyone who supported and assisted with the Tree of Light 2016 initiative. On November 26th the event began with a torchlit procession led by singers from the Ludlow Male Voice Choir and Bella Acapella. The lights on the tree in the Castle Gardens, which had been kindly provided by the Town Council, were then duly switched on by the Mayor Paul Draper as culmination of the Town’s Switch-On of the Christmas lights.

Rotarians, Tony Robinson and Diane Lyle, were particularly involved in distributing dedication forms and posters around the town, which were also available online. Nock Deighton and St Laurence’s church kindly acted collection points for the dedication forms and donations. Diane also collected and collated the information from the forms. By the close on January 5th there were some 70 individual dedications and several hundred pounds had been raised for local Rotary charities, thanks to the generosity of the donors.

The Ludlow and Tenbury Wells Advertiser kindly published a list of the dedications as they came in each week and this list was also available online at The Ludlow Rotary Club website. The Book of Remembrance for 2016 detailing all the dedications is now on view in St Laurence’s church and online at

Once again the Ludlow Tree of Light was able to offer people the opportunity to celebrate and commemorate loved ones as well as supporting local charities over the Christmas period. Ludlow Rotary Club hopes that the many people involved have enjoyed the Tree of Light 2016 which now, after Twelfth Night, has been returned to its usual evergreen foliage.

Many thanks to all those concerned
Sue Fleetwood on behalf of Ludlow Rotary Club
