For 10 years I have had a Christmas Tree in my garden for grandparents to write messages to their estranged grandchildren, it is called our "Tree of Hope." It becomes a little beacon of light at a dark time in peoples lives. If you would like to write a message please do inbox me I will write them and pop on the tree.
