SIR - I wholeheartedly support Peter Ware's campaign to have a Christmas Tree in St Peter's Street. The blue lights there are beautiful but, as a bus traveller, I spend hours at the bus stop wishing, with fellow would-be passengers, that a brightly-lit tree for all to see was outside the old Town Hall.

Let's give St Peter's Street a heart, with a tree, roasted chestnuts and carol singers from local schools and charities.

It can only improve trade and if the cost is made known, let's see if we can raise the money. We can then keep the Arena tree as well, and make St Albans an even better Christmas shopping destination.
