SIR, - Having read that St Albans District Council is planning a "new era of quality public spaces" (Herts Advertiser, January 1) where special events can be celebrated and enjoyed by everyone, I am hoping that the resiting and decoration of St Albans' Christmas tree will be put at the top of the council's list of priorities in its programme of improvements for 2009.

At present the St Albans Christmas tree is hidden away outside the Alban Arena where probably only those coming out of the Arena will notice it.

For the past three years I have been disgusted by the council's lack of vision in its decoration of its Christmas tree which must the rated as one of the dullest in the country. The Christmas tree is one of the most popular and cherished Christmas customs and as such should be uplifting to the spirit and placed in a predominant position such as in front of the Town Hall - where the spirit of Christmas can be seen and celebrated and enjoyed by everyone.

PETER WARES,

Ramsbury Road, St Albans.
