Chris and Avril Rowlands Christmas Tree

Copyright resides with the original holder, no reproduction without permission












Hi, Chris and Avril Rowlands have made the news with their enormous Christmas tree! Each year they raise money for charity through their Christmas lights.

Chris was a film editor and then Editing Organiser at Pebble Mill – and my boss for around 9 months in the late 1980s! Avril was a very well respected Production Assistant, and author on the subject.

Thanks to Ray Lee, for pointing out the story.

It probably dates from the late 1970s.
